In addition to installing Xorg 1.14, did you do anything else to make the GNOME desktop environment and GDM work?

I have just begun playing around with it though. Let you know how it goes.

I was having problems with gdm for a long time, it would be best to switch to other desktop manager.
As for a gnome it should work with my patched packages - cogl, mutter and imagemagick-nocl. There are not on the aur, only the repo (catalyst repo, you will find it on wiki) , but if you want sources I can give u them.

Thanks for the help.

One last thing though I can't seem to use catalyst-test with gnome. Xorg segfaults and GDM won't show up. Any ideas on how I can use Gnome with catslyst?.

you mean mesa-noglvnd, right? you can edit ~/.gnupg/gpg.conf
and add line:
keyserver-options auto-key-retrieve

my file also has:
keyserver hkp://

or you can build mesa-noglvnd with makepkg and it's --skippgpcheck option

Thanks, I'll try that. When I try to install it I get a mesa-libglvnd pgp error. How do I fix this?. Won't let me proceed.

Sure, just rename linux to linux-lts
and linux-headers to linux-lts-headers
in depends array @ PKGBUILD file

I wanted to install catalyst-test with the 4.9 lts kernel, but it tries to push me to 4.11 is there a way to use catalyst-test with 4.9 lts?

Thanks npfeiler, I will add your patch after getting back from vacation leave, in Sunday.
Edit: Done, mesa 17.1.0 has took me some time, I should update more packages tomorrow, or the day after... work is taking me too much time.
Plus is that I got Gnome working. Yes, it was as easy as updating patched mutter (I also updated cogl but it should not be that important)
mutter for people who don't like waiting for packages to arrive in the repo:
patched cogl, just in case:
