download is fixed now

updated to 15.302.2001 with our 4.6 kernel support, DKMS and acpi script from aslmaswd.

Don't have time to look at why direct download doesn't work, maybe some nice bit or something, so please download manually from:
and paste zip next to PKGBUILD

I've fix the problem, it wasn't GDM making the drivers unable to display.

It was actually xorg, interfering with the installation process. Since every time, I killed xorg with pkill x and re-installed drivers, the next time they boot up it works fine.

the only problem now is, reinstalling the driver every time xorg fails. Well not really a big problem, since I can actually use gdm now

Well, thanks Vi0l0

Packages are pretty old, from stable repos ie:
gnome-shell 3.18.3-1
gdm 3.18.2-1
clutter 1.24.2-1

I've tried a fresh arch installation with Gnome running "gdm 3.18.2-1" and "wayland 1.9.0-1". I'm still currently unsure to why I can't boot up GDM login screen.

Vi0L0, what was the version of GNOME that you tested on ? I tried disabling wayland, and defaulted back to xorg, it got the login screen working, but after logging in it hangs at a grey screen which will not fade away.

EDIT : "ctrl + alt + f2 / f1" skipped the grey screen and made most of GNOMEs, functionality work but at a cost of my gfx getting quite toasty

No, leave it as is, it's perfectly fine. Just wanted to confirm you have it installed.

Malekeith commented on 2015-12-25 15:53

I'm currently using the one you linked in the comments, should I remove ?

Vi0L0 commented on 2015-12-25 15:19

But you are using patched cogl package (available ie in the [catalyst] repo)? Just checking

Malekeith commented on 2015-12-25 13:31

it works quite fine for the most part, aticonfig --initial and fglrxinfo works fine too. Since, my W8100 got detected


aticonfig --initial:


I added "nomodeset" on the bootloader side, and by default using aticonfig made the "/etc/modules-load.d/catalyst.conf" which has "fglrx"

Practically followed the instructions from the wikipage :

both gnome and gdm works fine here.
What do you mean by `accessing catalyst`? Does aticonfig work fine, can it detect your gpu ie when running `aticonfig --initial`? Whats your gfx? Was fglrx module build correctly?
