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:

@obrez Try to reinstall catalyst-dkms with -Syuu (which allows downgrades).

@blueberry @Vi0L0 Just want to thank you guys, Been fighting this for a month. I moved to LTS kernel for now and everything is working. I am getting these errors though when running pacman.

error: missing 'linux>=3.0' dependency for 'catalyst-dkms'
error: missing 'linux<4.11' dependency for 'catalyst-dkms'
error: missing 'linux-api-headers>=4.10' dependency for 'glibc'

do I need catalyst-dkms?

thanks again guys <3

Yesterday I updated catalyst-test and xorg "broke" in a sense that it refused connections, but Xorg.0.log and journalctl -b didn't have any unusual errors, except a hint that there was some crash dump connected to xorg/fglrx (but this wasn't so obvious to notice, at least for me). I googled and tried all possible and impossible re/installations, but nothing helped.

I have a pretty unusual configuration with 2x R9 290x + Nvidia 1080 + xmonad + startix with xinitrc, but even plugging out nvidia card didn't help.

The solution (in my case) was to ** switch kernel to linux-lts (4.9).**! I didn't try this before because Vi0L0 is using 4.10, but in the end that segfault prompted me to try kernel 4.9, and that was the solution.

I can't post the actual outputs since there were so many things that I tried, but I hope this can help someone...

all mentioned modules blacklisted

Vi0L0 commented on 2017-04-16 08:17

@herycp: this RIP doesn't look good, but like I said gdm probably won't work, so check other one. Also did you blacklisted all mentioned modules?
