about 4.9 and 4.10 kernel support - looks like to make it work correctly with fglrx you have to blacklist amdgpu ie.:

# cat /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
blacklist amdgpu

catalyst is old and it supports only up to xorg-server 1.17, you can get it from repo:

[xorg117]
Server = http://mirror.hactar.xyz/Vi0L0/xorg117/$arch

add it to pacman.conf above other repositories and perform downgrade:
pacman -Syuu

catalyst will not support newer versions of xorg-server, like ever.

If you see this conflict:

looking for conflicting packages...
:: mesa and catalyst-libgl are in conflict (mesa-libgl). Remove catalyst-libgl? [y/N] n
error: unresolvable package conflicts detected
error: failed to prepare transaction (conflicting dependencies)
:: mesa and catalyst-libgl are in conflict

for now I've added mesa packages of 17.0.1-1 version to [catalyst]* and [catalyst-stable] - simply copied from archive: https://archive.archlinux.org/packages/

Please downgrade if you updated mesa to -2 version.
After new version of mesa came out, I will build new mesa packages without glvnd support. Then I will most probably add new mesa package to aur. Will let know when it will happen

@Vi0L0 , the catalyst-utils and catalyst-libgl packages are not necessary for opencl-catalyst to function at all! And if we do not install catalyst-utils and catalyst-libgl packages, then there is no need to install xorg-server 1.17, because OpenCL and xorg-server works without it, even with the latest releases of Linux and xorg-server. In addition, you need to update this package because a newer version is released, and the link to the previous source no longer exists Thank you!

@redshoe , you should go to the official AMD website (https://www.amd.com/en/support) to manually download a zip-archive with this driver to the directory with the PKGBUILD if see this an download error massage:

GNOME 3.18 fix
In [catalyst] and [catalyst-stable] you may find a new package cogl 1.22.0-2. It brings fix for recent problems with new GNOME 3.18 and new GDM (it baheves strange with plasma though, after choosing plasma and entering password I have to switch to tty and then back to X to see plasma desktop, probably another bug).
Source and a patch is here: http://mirror.rts-informatique.fr/archlinux-catalyst/tarball/gnome318-problems/cogl-1.22.0-2.src.tar.gz

@er***: many users are experiencing freezes here:

I'm gonna paste your story there, maybe it will help someone.
Hope you don't mind, whoever you are ;) (as I can see that your account doesn't exist anymore)

be aware that I removed linux from dependency array and so it will let linux to update (while it's not supported tongue), if you will not configure bootloader to use kernel older than 4.2, like linux-lts, it will probably boot linux and you will probably gonna see a freeze or blank screen. System should work though, you can ssh to it and config bootloader from here, or use single mode if you can't ssh, or well there's possibility that linux-lts was added before, boot it and config as default kernel to boot.
