After installation and configuring my xorg.con I can start Xorg with root rights only, when I start it from non-root user, Xorg fails with next messages:
[ 13.105] (EE) fglrx(0): failed to map MMIO register space!(EE) fglrx(0): MapMMIO failed
[ 13.105] (EE) fglrx(0): PreInitAdapter failed
[ 13.105] (EE) fglrx(0): PreInit failed

This is the permission problem (may be even with X11, I installed it from, but about two days I can not find solution for it.

I have been using oss amdgpu latelly, but can confirm that catalyst-total works fine on 4.7.4-1-ARCH.

Is there anyone else having issues with the Linux kernel 4.7.3-2?

Deepcool commented on 2016-08-28 01:02

I found success and installed the xorg 1.17 and catalyst-total.

But I had to bring the system down to the base than build from the ground up.

Thank you

It's very likely, but I will be able to perform necessary tests and updates on Monday. Give me this time please.

I'm not very tech guy, but could it just work by patching it by Vi0l0's 4.7-arch-cpu_has_pge.patch from the catalyst-test aur package?

Any clues welcome.

Today I tried updating my system and got this:

$ yaourt -Syua
:: Starting full system upgrade...
resolving dependencies...
looking for conflicting packages...
error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)
:: catalyst-total: installing linux (4.7-1) breaks dependency 'linux<4.7'

Are there patches for kernel 4.7.x yet? or should we switch to linux-lts which sits nicely at 4.4.16-1 right now?

Check the arch wiki for catalyst:

You'll have to use one of the unofficial builds.

arun_kpm commented on 2016-08-10 10:49

there is no old version of xorg-server(less than 1.18) in aur . so , I am getting this error

thanks @beaker23

I've been unable to get it to build the fglrx module for the linux-grsec kernel, here's the log I keep getting when it attempts to build:

==> dkms install -m fglrx -v 15.9 -k
Error! Bad return status for module build on kernel: (x86_64)
Consult /var/lib/dkms/fglrx/15.9/build/make.log for more information.

I have it running without issue with the vanilla linux kernel and linux-zen.

Am I missing something for building the module for linux-grsec? I do have the appropriate headers installed as well.

I'm on a carrizo based laptop, the open-source drivers are horrible with my chipset I've been getting the best performance out of the proprietary catalyst driver.
