updated to 15.12-16 - 4.12 kernel support

thanks for the patch goes to @npfeiler

atm on i686 I'm facing same issue like manjaro[1]:

./arch/x86/include/asm/uaccess.h:674:32: error: expected '=', ',', ';', 'asm' or '__attribute__' before 'movsl_mask'
} ____cacheline_aligned_in_smp movsl_mask;

so for now I removed i686 from supported arch list

I had problems after upgrading the kernel, so I’ve installed the LTS instead and now, after some dependency conflicts, catalyst is working here. I had to uninstall lots of stuff, like wine. I’m trying to install wine, and it asks me to select which package to use for lib32-libgl, which I choose the lib32-catalyst-libgl one. Next it asks for the opengl-driver. It gave me just two options conflicting with catalyst, until I installed lib32-mesa-noglvnd. I was going to ask about this and solved as I tested and wrote this. Thanks! :)

I was able to test for a bit with kernel 4.10, there are no errors in the Xorg.0.log nor the lightdm.log, however once the system starts up and LightDM launches it just sits there with a black screen and white blinking cursor. I have also blacklisted amdgpu

@Flowneee: it's easier to maintenance and save both you and me lot of network traffic and time ie. if I had to update fglrx to fit newer kernel I only had to update one small package like catalyst-dkms, not the whole big catalyst-total. Also you may not need opencl - because its in separate package, you don't have to install it.
These are pros of the repo.

Anyhow if you want all packages which catalyst-total brings, then you will have to install these packages from the repo (assuming you are x86_64 with multilib):
pacman -S catalyst-dkms catalyst-utils catalyst-libgl opencl-catalyst lib32-catalyst-utils lib32-catalyst-libgl lib32-opencl-catalyst

thanks Vi0L0, never knew about [catalyst] repo. But why there is no catalyst-total package in [catalyst] repo?

thanks Vi0L0
after blacklist amdgpu - it`s work

Vi0L0 commented on 2017-03-13 22:13

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

edit: if that won't help you can also:
blacklist kms
blacklist drm_kms_helper
