thanks, silently changed

lordmocha commented on 2016-06-12 23:19

There seem to be non-UTF8 characters in the contributors' names in the PKGBUILD. Can those characters be changed/removed? They are breaking AUR helpers. Specifically the ü at position 1073.

Neije commented on 2016-04-13 19:54

Whith the opensource driver, the problem is that some cards does not work that well. And it's difficult to be sure until you tested. The later cards works pretty fine with "normal" games. Which model you can check on the wiki.

I have been experiencing the opensource driver for a while now and do not find any fluctuation. Sometimes I get glitches. But I had actually worse with the catalyst blob. So ... a bit less performance but much better compatibility and very easier update process xD

Am playing on linux, but my games does not demand that much ... so I can't tell for AAA games.

Vi0L0 commented on 2016-04-13 07:18

pre-GCN was dropped in later catalyst release, 5xxx should work just fine with this catalyst-total one.
Even in newer releases it's good to check out if its really not working, and if its not take (IIRC) /etc/ati/control file from catalyst 15.9 version and overwrite newer one with it.

Trist commented on 2016-04-13 07:07

@Neije
I know this is late but I haven't felt like trying again up to this point. Are all 5XXX devices just not supported anymore? What version should I look for if I want support? hd234k? I think this information should find it's way into the OP because the error itself doesn't present itself until its already installed and fucked up everything to the point where it would just be easier to reinstall

I want to use the open source drivers but I want a replacement for Windows entirely and while it does just work it gives me terrible performance. Even after turning off vsync, no matter what I do the opensource drivers will fluctuate in framerate rapidly. I know it is not a problem with my card because it will fluctuate at 60 fps down to 50, yet will allow me to raise my FPS to even 250 and fluctuate down to only 140ish which is playable but this isn't an option in most games

@arp12
You will need to downgrade your xorg-server
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/AMD_Catalyst#Xorg_repositories

arp12 commented on 2016-04-04 19:55

How can I install this package without compatible xorg-server?

Neije commented on 2016-02-29 21:32

If I'm not mistaking your card is not supported anymore by catalyst. Just use the opensource driver ... or you must use and older version of catalyst+xorg.

But the opensource driver just works.

Trist commented on 2016-02-29 17:36

I am using an HD 5870 and this will not install on my system. First off I installed through the repositories, though the files should be the same. It gives an error saying my card is not supported. I don't remember the error message, I may try reinstalling again for debug info in the forums, but I figured this should be mentioned here since this is where I read that my card should still work with it in the first place.

Also this package will mess with your BIOS configuration and try overclocking your card among other changes without any user intervention so be warned.

Freso commented on 2016-02-08 12:43

@lordmocha If you're using the Catalyst drivers, be prepared to pretty much always be at least one version behind on both X.org and Linux kernel. The Catalyst drivers simply won't work on the newest releases due to the way AMD builds them.

lordmocha commented on 2016-02-08 05:40

The dependency `xorg-server` demands version `<1.18.0`, but the most recent version is `1.18.0-4`.

Any chance of an updated catalyst-total? Thanks.

AlPiotrowicz commented on 2016-01-21 14:37

All works like a charm now. It must have been 0xfc issue.
Thank you very much. Appreciate all your work.

Vi0L0 commented on 2016-01-21 11:04

it doesn't like ü (hex fc in char is ü), but I removed it yesterday.
Can you check one more time?

AlPiotrowicz commented on 2016-01-20 10:08

Hi, thanks for an update.

Seems it fails with aura update

Cannot decode byte '\xfc': Data.Text.Internal.Encoding.streamDecodeUtf8With: Invalid UTF-8 stream

Any clues appreciated.

Best regards.

Vi0L0 commented on 2015-12-22 17:56

15.9-9:
- adding new patch from crimson
- removing gcc49 dependency
- adding initial grsec kernel support
- adding initial 4.4 kernel support

should be safe to remove gcc49 pkg :)

Neije commented on 2015-12-06 23:04

Hey !

Thanks for your answer. So I tried, but it seems my card (HD 5670) is not supported anymore !!! so I got nothing good with catalyst-total and even if installation succeeded, I couldn't start X.

So I suppose I have to find a solution to fix my glitches with the open source driver ...

Vi0L0 commented on 2015-12-01 21:40

Just add [xorg117] repo on the top of pacman.conf file. Then as root in CLI type:
pacman -Syuu
It should downgrade xserver related packages.
Then you should be ready to install catalyst-total[1].

Typically generating xorg.conf and adding nomodeset to kernel options should be all that you need.
If you are on hybrid gfx then its good to look at last pages of bar & grill and search for pxp users comments.

[1]there's new release in catalyst-test but internet is saying that it dropped support for pre-GCN GPUs, neverthless some hd 5 6 k owners have successes on running newest driver, you can check it out, but at first set up 15.9 to be sure that your config is fine.

Neije commented on 2015-12-01 07:41

Hello Violo, everyone,

I wanted to try out the open source driver with my card (5670) and although it does work, I would like to come back to the catalyst for some more tests. Right now, I had to upgrade all my system and I have the latest xorg + xserver package ... which is kinda problem for installing the driver because of 1.18.0 dependencies.

I normally use the xorg repos. I would like to know how I should proceed now ? I am confused just how I can get the driver installed. can I force it ? or should I use a test version compatible with the xorg-server package ?

Vi0L0 commented on 2015-11-25 20:18

for now Crimson will stay on catalyst-test@AUR and [catalyst] (it will be updated soon), and this updated to 15.9-6 package should stay for some time (don't worry, new package probably called catalyst-total-hd56k will be created later) to serve pre-GCN cards users.

depletionmode commented on 2015-11-24 14:08

The new driver (Crimson) has been released today. Is this package going to be updated at some point for the new driver branch or another package opened for that driver (http://www2.ati.com/drivers/linux/radeon-crimson-15.11-15.30.1025.zip)?

oljik commented on 2015-11-23 12:14

guinux, isn't that problem of nomodeset with Intel integrated graphics?

rrodriguez1975 commented on 2015-10-16 18:21

Hi, Vi0L0,
I need some help... I have installed catalyst-total in my arch system and now I cannot boot into X. I checked lightdm and now openbox but X does not start. I access directly to virtual terminal tty1.

Once logged in If I launch startx I get some message errors:

I am using arch kernel 4.1.10-2-lts and xorg-server 1.16.4-1

I have put a thread here: https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=203887

There I explain more in depth. Could you have a look to see if these issues are related to catalyst?

Vi0L0 commented on 2015-10-07 20:15

Are you sure that you are booting from linux-lts and not from linux?

guinux commented on 2015-10-07 20:11

Hello! I have linux-lts installed in my Dell 5547 ([AMD/ATI] Topaz XT [Radeon R7 M260/M265]) and the package compiles well, but the system hangs on boot. I have added "nomodeset", run the "aticonfig --initial", etc. Is anyone having this kind of problems? Can anybody help me?

brycec commented on 2015-10-05 00:25

@pauloschilling There is nothing Gnome- or LightDM-specific about this. Among the many configurations and machines I've used this with was a system with no login manager, just boot to console and run startx with awesome when I needed X.
The Xserver version is a limitation from the Catalyst drivers themselves.

pauloschilling commented on 2015-10-04 23:40

@Vi0L0 do you know if this package works with any display manager other than LightDM on gnome 3.16 + xserver 1.17?

I'm using LightDM since it's the one recommended in the Wiki. I had to switch from GDM a few months ago to make it work, tried to go back this weekend but didn't succeed.

Oh, and thank you for your work, really appreciate it! :)

ybnrmalatall commented on 2015-10-04 07:28

I just noticed this. Meow. Thanks @Vi0L0. May I lick your fingers? (ಥ⌣ಥ)

transmutated commented on 2015-10-01 00:10

@Vi0L0,thanks for the update. It's nice to finally update my machine:) Thanks for your hardwork keeping this package up to date on Arch over the years. AMD should be kissing your feet;)

Vi0L0 commented on 2015-09-29 19:22

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.

Vi0L0 commented on 2015-09-29 09:40

soon I will update, just wanted to look at kernel 4.2 closer, because we still have problems with it.
For now please switch to catalyst-test@AUR or repos which brings newest catalyst release, also use linux-lts

transmutated commented on 2015-09-28 21:54

@Vi0L0, any update on this package? Looks like there is a 15.9 out there that supports a newer current xorg server finally. Will require some sort of patching to work with the present 4.2 kernel in core. Looks like this package hasn't been updated in 3 months now.

Vi0L0 commented on 2015-06-04 13:23

updated to 15.5-1 - AKA "nothing interesting":
- it doesn't support xserver 1.17
- looks older than ubuntu vivid driver which we are using ie in catalyst-test@AUR
- i've added initial support for 4.1 kernel (using kolasa's patch, tested on 4.1rc5)
- rel notes: http://support.amd.com/en-us/kb-articles/Pages/AMDCatalyst15-5LINReleaseNotes.aspx

Vi0L0 commented on 2015-05-04 18:24

14.12-3:
- 4.0 kernel support (thanks to kolasa for patch)

mcxplode commented on 2015-05-01 17:17

not a big deal catalyst-test supports kernel 4.0
wonder if this package actually needs patch or just dependencies updated.

Vi0L0 commented on 2015-05-01 12:41

I'm traveling, will be back on Sunday/Monday,then will search for solution.
if it's important then maybe check kolasa's github for the patch

mcxplode commented on 2015-04-30 03:04

now needs linux kernel 4.0.1 patch

optomus commented on 2015-04-05 07:28

Would someone be able to provide a more direct reference to "kolasa's patch". I am able to use --ignore xorg-server to bypass anything xorg related though I consistently get hit with "error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)
:: catalyst-total: requires linux<3.19"

Vi0L0 commented on 2015-03-08 14:35

oh forget to add: i was testing radeon from lordheavy's [mesa-git] repo

Vi0L0 commented on 2015-03-08 14:33

no problemo ;)
i asked because i could miss something, like new release, but nope.

btw: recent changes on radeon oss side made this driver pretty fast on my 290x, it performs almost like fglrx :) some games - like cs:go - performs even better and cacthes something like ~110 fps on high details @ 2560x1440 with fxaa enabled, blur off (i don't like blur, plus it has negative impact), vsync off, compositing disabled

FadeMind commented on 2015-03-08 14:26

Accidentally. Sorry about that.

Vi0L0 commented on 2015-03-08 13:57

why flagging ood, lol?

Vi0L0 commented on 2015-03-08 13:55

14.12-2:
- using kolasa's patch to cover 3.19 kernel support

@megglos:
you are the first one asking for embedded version :)
Chances to see this soon are very small, mainly because i don't have that much time atm, also i don't have hardware to test it well. But i'm not saying no.
Just now its not the best time.
If you don't want to wait - feel free to take this code and upload new embedded driver

megglos commented on 2015-02-21 12:29

thanks for this great pkg!

I just setup the Gizmo 2 development board based on AMD G-Series with it and have tear-free fluid video decoding now:)
I had to modify the driver source though to the embedded driver:

http://techeng.amd.com/1391/14.502.1001-141216a-180496E-AES.zip
obtained from http://wwwd.amd.com/AMD/devsite.nsf/oslookup/linux_chipset_drivers

any chance of seeing a new catalyst-embedded package?

Vi0L0 commented on 2015-02-15 12:04

xserver 1.17 renders nasty segfault.
For now you can use [xorg116] repo:

[xorg116]
# uncomment one server from the list below:
#Server = http://catalyst.wirephire.com/repo/xorg116/$arch
#Server = http://mirror.rts-informatique.fr/archlinux-catalyst/repo/xorg116/$arch
#Server = http://mirror.hactar.bz/Vi0L0/xorg116/$arch

drxspace commented on 2015-02-15 11:50

I just came into this:

│ error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)
│ :: catalyst-total: requires xorg-server<1.17.0

because Xorg X server wants to update its version to 1.17.1-1

Afrogabs commented on 2015-01-18 22:24

Just got it working.... kernel setting 'nomodeset' is fundamental, while radeon driver doesn't work anymore with it, fglrx is kickin ass... package is fine.

Afrogabs commented on 2015-01-18 01:55

With catalyst-total or catalyst-test, the Xorg 1.16.3-2 fails at startup with error "(EE) fglrx(0): failed to map MMIO register space!".

I have also tried to downgrade xorg-server to 1.15, and it worked with catalyst-test, while the fps rate at Dota 2 was like 10 (same speed as with 'radeon' driver), no matter the resolution/quality selected. With v-sync disabled on amdcccle, fps was like 15.
Using fglrx, xorg would aways crash upon quitting it, the screen froze in bizarre colors...

Is there a solution? 10 fps in dota2 is just normal for the HD5450?


Vi0L0 commented on 2014-12-20 19:40

quote from bar and grill:
I can see that git version already have this patch included (as well as other fixes). Can some pxp user check if xf86-video-intel-git works fine on their systems with xserver 1.16 installed? You can get this pkg from AUR or from the [mesa-git] repo or you can use mine if you want[1], i built it minutes ago for x86_64.

[1]http://mirror.rts-informatique.fr/archlinux-catalyst/files/xf86-video-intel-git/

Vi0L0 commented on 2014-12-18 21:41

silent update, no pkg rel bump: added catalyst-libgl, opencl-catalyst, lib32-catalyst-libgl and lib32-opencl-catalyst into provides array to satisfy libva-xvba-driver (and maybe other that will come in the future) deps

Vi0L0 commented on 2014-12-12 21:58

Looks fine. After X crash you can:
- log in via ssh (if you enabled it) to your host and paste /var/log/Xorg.0.log on some pastebin service;
- run your system in single user mode:
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/General_troubleshooting#Single_user_mode
and paste /var/log/Xorg.0.log on some pastebin service

Graycat commented on 2014-12-12 15:38

How do you install the driver?

The usuall method I use:
Code:

yaourt catalyst-test
sudo pacman -S acpid
sudo systemctl enable atieventsd
sudo systemctl start atieventsd
sudo systemctl enable catalyst-hook
sudo systemctl start catalyst-hook
sudo aticonfig --initial

edit grub.cfg with: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="nomodeset"
sudo grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg


It has caused me to get a completely broken system, all I get at boot is a flashing cursor after it mounts my drives with no rescue prompt.

My card is a R9 270x by the way.

Perdouille commented on 2014-12-11 22:04

I don't really play COD4, almost never played it :/

(Still add me on Steam, I got a lot of other games ^^)

Vi0L0 commented on 2014-12-11 21:55

As for the cs - i really don't have much time latelly :(. Right now for example I wish i could play more in dragon age inquisition, because I really liked it, but all this work (and no play makes jack a dull boy ;P) and girl and cat :) are taking soo much time...
Also im not that good in cs, you would kick my ass ;P hmm... what about oldie cod4? :)

Perdouille commented on 2014-12-11 21:54

It sometimes goes higher than 60fps (like 200fps in loadings, or when I look at the sky), so it's probably not VSync . I disabled composing (I'm using xfce, so I did "xfwm4 --compositor=off --replace &" to remove compiz and to start xfwm without composing, and tear-free is disabled.

I'll find what's the problem later, thanks a lot for helping me :)

Vi0L0 commented on 2014-12-11 21:50

60fps is the worst value, it means that you have got v-sync enabled, and it always sucked on catalysts...

go to amdcccle and disable tear-free and set v-sync to always off

also disable compositing as it is performance killer, ie you can disable kde's compositior (kwin) on the fly with Left Alt + Left Shift + F12

Perdouille commented on 2014-12-11 21:49

Wow ... I only have 60 fps and a lot of freezes. I'll find what's the problem :)

If you want to play CS someday, add me on Steam ! ( http://steamcommunity.com/id/Perdouille/ ) (I'm around MG2 - DMG)

Perdouille commented on 2014-12-11 21:46

Wow... Why do I have 60fps an a lot of freezes ?

If you want to play CS someday, add me on Steam ! ( http://steamcommunity.com/id/Perdouille/ )

Vi0L0 commented on 2014-12-11 21:40

120-200 fps on highest and 2xmsaa (blur disabled, i dont like it) on 2560x1440.
And yes, fpses and rpgs are my favs :)

Perdouille commented on 2014-12-11 21:32

How many FPS ?

(I got 60fps maximum with my 7870 with details on low, but around 200 - 300 under windows with everything on max :/ )

That's cool to know that you're playing Global Offensive :)

Vi0L0 commented on 2014-12-11 21:30

Everything is in this package. CS:GO works very good here (on 290X).
Disable Compositing, Tear-Free and V-Sync, should help

Perdouille commented on 2014-12-11 21:26

Hello ! Thanks for the driver :)

I try to play games under Linux, like Global Offensive. Even with this driver, it's still slow. Is there anything to install to make games work ? (Like other libs), or everything is in this package ?

Thanks !

Vi0L0 commented on 2014-12-11 20:49

ohh wait, somethings wrong is going on with osd (including subtitles) when using this new vaapi driver, guess it needs some fixes ;P, so it's still beter to use xvba here

Vi0L0 commented on 2014-12-11 20:38

actually vaapi does work well here without additional xvba-video packages :)

just add
export LIBVA_DRIVER_NAME=fglrx
into ~/.bashrc, and if that won't work for all your players you can create something like /etc/profile.d/fglrx-vaapi.sh with lets say:
LIBVA_DRIVER_NAME=fglrx
export LIBVA_DRIVER_NAME
LIBVA_DRIVERS_PATH=/usr/lib/dri/
export LIBVA_DRIVERS_PATH

http://support.amd.com/en-us/kb-articles/Pages/AMDCatalystOmegaLINReleaseNotes.aspx

vaapi seems to not work though: http://www.phoronix.com/forums/showthread.php?110879-Catalyst-Omega-14-12-is-out&p=458342#post458342

quick tests showed that this driver is pretty good.
2d rendering was never that fast on 290X (its almost as fluid as on oss radeon)

IMPORTANT
thing is that from now on theres this new symlink:
ln -snf /usr/lib/libXvBAW.so.1.0 ${pkgdir}/usr/lib/dri/fglrx_drv_video.so
which will conflict with xvba-video packages. Thats amd's will, maybe they will do something with it. Feel free to remove this file(symlink) from your system before updating (if you will be touched by a conflict).

I already have updated xvba-video and opencl-headers (2.0) packages on my disk, as well as catalyst packages, but I need to test it. Before I will do this I have to go asleep. I already feel dizzy, sorry mates. I will perform repo (as well as other AUR packages) update tomorrow.

New stable driver 14.12 is out: http://support.amd.com/en-us/kb-articles/Pages/AMDCatalystOmegaLINReleaseNotes.aspx

thekollegah commented on 2014-10-10 09:26

How come u say 1.16 Xorg is support?
Officially 1.15 is supported.
I tested it yesterday... with Xorg 1.16 "mesa" is using the GPU
with 1.15 and catalyst-total fglrx is using the GPU...

after updating xorg 1.15 -> 1.16 graphic card stopped working
so 1.16 is NOT supported yet

Vi0L0 commented on 2014-10-09 19:33

I mean if its working for you then you can only be happy ;)

Vi0L0 commented on 2014-10-09 19:32

sorry mate, i'm unable to reproduce it.
Not only me, and not only arch users, also amd claimed that 14.9 does supports up to xserver 1.15

ShyPixie commented on 2014-10-07 19:46

@Vi0L0 This version support xorg 1.16. I tested with Radeon HD 8570D and work fine.

ansh_kumar commented on 2014-10-04 07:03

Is it just me or anyone else is getting a poor 2D rendering ??

Vi0L0 commented on 2014-10-03 20:42

why flaggin out of date?
There's no newer stable catalyst version on amd site

Vi0L0 commented on 2014-10-03 18:53

updated to 14.9-1:
- official, stable release
http://support.amd.com/en-us/kb-articles/Pages/AMDCatalyst14-9LINReleaseNotes.aspx

- it doesn't support xserver 1.16

- I added my fresh patch for kernel 3.17 rc6.
Notes about the patch:
1. it probably wont work on 3.17 kernels older than rc6 because I don't know how to tell preprocessor about rc version :P
2. im unable to test resume/suspend
3. im not the developer, just pressing random keys :P so the patch could be less/more noobish :-)

Vi0L0 commented on 2014-09-30 06:54

Thanks for the head up, Ginkgo

I will be back at Friday, and then I will update to this new stable release.
Just note that it doesn't support xserver 1.16 (it should be better than 14.4, though)

@Ginko

It's pretty much only for people who want to play The Witcher 2 on Linux [1].
If you want it you can basically just edit the source array to point to the right link [1] bump the pkgrel and install. Seems to work fine so far on my machine anyway.

They apparently released a new stable version 14.4-rev2 today.
Not sure what's new in that one.

stilljb commented on 2014-05-13 23:25

Just thought that I'd let people know as an FYI, that at least in my situation, after an upgrade to 14.4-11 I had to disable tear-free to make my system work with 3 monitors in Fluxbox, 2 in landscape, and 1 in portrait. It was coming up with the 2 landscape monitors flashing, covered in artifacts, and no useful cursor. The portrait monitor worked however. If I turned off the portrait monitor, then the other 2 started to work.

Disabling tear free in amdccle fixed this.

Vi0L0, since I'm posting on here, I just want to say thanks for all you do!

Vi0L0 commented on 2014-05-01 19:22

There's a bug in linux 3.14.2:
https://bugs.archlinux.org/index.php?do=details&action=details.addvote&task_id=40171

Temporary workaround is to downgrade linux and linux-headers to 3.14.1 or use gcc from [testing]. The first solution should be imho safer. You can find 3.14.1 at arm:

x86_64:
ftp://seblu.net/archlinux/arm/2014/04/25/core/os/x86_64/linux-3.14.1-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz

Vi0L0 commented on 2014-04-28 20:33

updated to 14.4-11, catalyst 14.4 stable:
- xserver 1.15 support
(gotjazz wrote: little warning though - if you use xbmc, get sdl-nobackingstore from the AUR or you'll have tearing during video playback with xorg 1.15)
- many fixes here and there

Symlinks of the package were modified to better suit to the mesa standard and fixed, unfortunatelly it caused a little problem, but simple - If you will see something like:
/usr/lib32/libAMDXvBA.so.1 exists in filesystem
/usr/lib32/libXvBAW.so.1 exists in filesystem
/usr/lib32/libatiuki.so.1 exists in filesystem

there are three ways to fix it, every single one should work:
1st method:
if there's no more file conflicts you can use:
pacman -U --force
2nd method:
is to remove and install again lib32-catalyst-utils package
3rd method:
is to remove conflicting files manually, and then update

anadon commented on 2014-04-09 00:54

Ok, just enabled only the stable and standard repositories, did a clean install of all graphics, and it is having issues compiling(?) the kernel module (I think). It also has a dependancy on xorg-server 1.14.x which is no longer available in the repos.

Vi0L0 commented on 2014-04-05 11:21

13.12-5:
added Cold's 3.14 patch

Vi0L0 commented on 2014-04-02 07:21

maybe its a fulls day joke? :)

as for 3.14 i will probably add support in saturday, if you want it now then grab a patch from catalyst-test@aur

beardedlinuxgeek commented on 2014-04-02 03:00

@anadon - why, because Linux 3.14 got pushed to Testing? It's not in Core yet. I just checked this package and it's fine.

anadon commented on 2014-04-02 02:44

Vi0L0! You saved my day! I was stumbling across this package after going insane!

Vi0L0 commented on 2014-03-09 22:21

updated:
- added mesa and lib32-mesa to the dependencies lists
- added symlinks to egl and gles libs of mesa and lib32-mesa

@marcoms:
Arch devs moved egl and gles libs from mesa to mesa-libgl because nvidia started to ship its own egl and gles libs, and so there was the conflict.

marcoms commented on 2014-03-09 18:46

Thanks ViOLO! I didn't know what to do when any app couldn't find libEGL. Do you know what caused the issue? I know that the recent mesa update probably caused it, but I don't know why.

I've been having problems since the last update -- my kwin doesn't load, and firefox won't run. I'm about 99% sure this is related. I loaded up openbox to see if I could get some more useful error messages, it says libEGL.so.1 is missing. Not sure what else to check.

General note:
I'm AFK and will so be till next saturday.
In case of problems please write on bar and grill thread. If no one will help and there's some serious bug - please write the bug report on bugzilla.

Meanwhile you can still use archive repos like ones for 13.4 and 13.11-beta94:
[catalyst-stable-13.4] and [catalyst-13.11-beta94]
Server's URLs are like on the wiki for [catalyst].

Or build pkgs on your own basing on archive tarballs (use newest ver):
http://catalyst.wirephire.com/tarball/13.4/
http://catalyst.wirephire.com/tarball/13.11-beta94/

devrepublic commented on 2013-11-17 03:57

Hey Vi0L0, I'm using yaourt to update the package but it tells me that the md5sum does not match. Should I just edit the pkgbuild to match the md5sum of the zip file downloaded? Also, regarding your note about new entries in amdpcsdb.default, is there anything that needs to be done to update the package smoothly? My version of catalyst-total is currently at 13.4-14

Thanks KeepSco.
It's because of new amd's site and it's new 'politic' of no direct download... :/

But thats not enought - amd has changed 13.4 a little bit - there's a lot of new entries in amdpcsdb.default file.

Anyhow like said on a top of the PKGBUILD:
NOTE: before building please download amd-driver-installer-catalyst-13-4-linux-x86.x86_64.zip using this site:
http://support.amd.com/en-us/download/desktop?os=Linux%20x86_64

Vindex17 commented on 2013-09-10 07:03

@blum I've looked for it and if pacman wants glamor-egl, it means you have the 'xf86-video-ati' package installed. So please be sure to uninstall 'lib32-ati-dri', 'ati-dri', 'xf86-video-ati' and all their dependencies because they are in conflict with catalyst. After that, you can use:
"sudo pacman -Rnsu $(pacman -Qtd)"
to remove all unneeded packages from your pc that might be remained from previous installations.

blum commented on 2013-09-10 06:25

@Vindex17: Yes, this is glamor-egl. I'm not sure if I need that package at all.

Hahha, what about that?:

$ sudo pacman -Rns mesa-libgl && pacman -Syuu
error: target not found: mesa-libgl

This is funny, first it detects a conflict with some package, after that tells me that in fact I don't have such package. I'm using archlinux since 2005, never seen such thing..

@fixles This package is awesome and works perfectly, so you probably misunderstood the wiki. I try to make you a summary. First, uninstall any catalyst pkgs you have and all radeon-driver related pkgs; then:

1) add:
[xorg113]
Server = http://catalyst.wirephire.com/repo/xorg113/$arch
in /etc/pacman.conf ABOVE ALL other repos
2) sudo pacman -Syuu
3) install catalyst-total (nothing else)
4) sudo systemctl enable atieventsd
5) sudo systemctl enable catalyst-hook
6) follow this section:https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Catalyst#Disable_kernel_mode_setting
7) sudo aticonfig -f --initials
8) blacklist the radeon module (https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Catalyst#Loading_the_module_at_boot)
9) reboot and enjoy

P.S. remember that you must have at least a radeon HD5xxx series

fixles commented on 2013-08-24 09:40

Depends on xorg-server<1.14.0 but:

Name : xorg-server
Version : 1.14.2-2

Why doesnt Arch maintain catalyst?

The repo in the wiki wouldnt build catalyst hook. This package doesnt work. I can live without a lot of things but I need these drivers.

@Vi0l0
Is it possible for you to make a pkg with older catalyst-total driver version? Backlight problem is really annoying, and workaround is not practical at all.

marcoms commented on 2013-05-17 15:54

BTW @Vi0L0, these errors:
/tmp/pacaurtmp-marco/catalyst-total/PKGBUILD: line 36: warning: command not found
/tmp/pacaurtmp-marco/catalyst-total/PKGBUILD: line 37: warning: command not found
/tmp/pacaurtmp-marco/catalyst-total/PKGBUILD: line 39: warning: command not found

Print because there is no command named 'warning', as your PKGBUILD tries to use here (PKGBUILD, line 36,37):
36 warning "x86_64 system detected"
37 warning "[multilib] repository must be uncommented in /etc/pacman.conf to add lib32-catalyst-utils into the package"

Did you mean 'echo'?

The same problem.

Anonymous comment on 2013-05-11 11:15

yup, there is a great problem with backlight after latest upgrade. At my ASUS X54h notebook after installing newest catalyst-total pkg, backlight just does not turn on, while loading of lxdm. Screen is displayed, which I can see under sunlight, but there is just no backlight and no way to increase it. lol.

incongruous commented on 2013-05-10 23:41

Thank you for continuing to maintain this package. I'd switch to the open-source drivers, but they still fail hard with the 7970. =(

einseenai commented on 2013-05-01 15:43

Thank you, Vi0L0. Btw, not sure that Varibright has something to do with backlight increasing/decreasing, though. Varibright works fine for me - i can enable and disable it freely. I hope AMD will fix it, for whatever reason it happens.

Vi0L0 commented on 2013-05-01 12:00

@einseenai:
yes, it's a know bug which first appear around 13.2 betas.
Look at the forum [1] for the possible workarounds

Looks like the latest update of catalyst-total has deprived me of ability to increase/decrease display brightness on my laptop with HD6320 (E-450) on-board (even with acpi_backlight=vendor in kernel params and respective thinkpad_acpi brightness_enable=1 in /etc/modprobe.d/thinkpad_acpi.conf). Rolling back to open source driver solved the issue though. Was it a Catalyst bug? Any idea, please?

catalyst still doesn't support xorg-server 1.14, that's the reason why it was removed from community repo.
For workaround read here:

updated to 13.1-5:
SyncFirst was removed from the pacman 4.1 and so we can no longer force linux-headers to be installed in first place...

Instead of using old catalyst-hook method which was not working well with pacman 4.1 + linux kernel, I have added a new method - automatic re-compilation while system shutdown/reboot

To enable 'automatic re-compilation while system shutdown/reboot' testing feature run these commands as root:
systemctl enable catalyst-hook
systemctl start catalyst-hook

Thanks for the info Opanos!

AMD once again has updated 13.1 driver, once again changed files are in /etc/ati/:
- amdpcsdb.default
- control
- signature

And are so so so minor that i've been thinking about 2 minutes about not bumping pkgrel :P
But I did it - maybe this small change will produce better results on some GPUs

yes, the source has changed recently, amd has updated it, i will check and update after gettin back home.

Though this package is also conflicting with xorg-server 1.14, simply becase catalyst does not support it.

Actually, for my RadeonHD-7600M Series I'm using the lastest xorg repo's (xorg-server-common 1.13.0.902-2, ...) with "catalyst-total", and all is great.

Is the xorg111 repository still required with the latest version of catalyst-total? I noticed that I am still running xorg-server 1.11.4-2 and would like to update to the current version if possible (1.13.0.902.2)

Provide headers to your kernel ie:

Most of custom kernels provides own headers.

Add nomodeset to your kernel line in /boot/grub/menu.lst , ie.:
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-linux root=/dev/sda1 ro nomodeset

You can use the tool 'aticonfig' to generate an xorg.conf file.

I also did the above post-installtion instructions, and I guess what I'm trying to ask is, just ignore the above "warnings" ???

I wouls like a (latest)stable ati-catalyst as possible.
So should I use this method, or instead use your repo; [catalyst]

... as per the arch ati/catalyst wiki ?

Sorry for the extranneous output here;

@Vi0L0
yup, tried control file from 12.4, it worked, though power management was terrible

Anyway, fixed in 12.8

Vi0L0 commented on 2012-08-06 21:29

this behavior is actually well known and happens from time to time with catalyst...
ie: http://phoronix.com/forums/showthread.php?72023-aticonfig-does-not-recognize-my-Radeon-6320

So yeah - i guess you should to try out control file from 12.4.
I did put this file here some time ago: http://catalyst.apocalypsus.net/files/control-12.4/
(architecture doesn't matter)

Deusdies commented on 2012-08-06 19:17

I would like to confirm that it indeed does NOT work on HD6310M. Installs fine, but aticonfig --initial says "No supported adapters found".

Vi0L0 commented on 2012-08-06 13:27

if that won't help try to use an older /etc/ati/control file (ie. from 12.4)

Have you tried the catalyst-total-hd234k package?

einseenai commented on 2012-08-06 12:21

Doesn't work with HD6320 (E450). aticonfig --initial fails, says no supported adapters found, which is strange since it worked on ubuntu. adapters database problem?

securitybreach commented on 2012-07-15 05:05

Well now it is fixed. This is what I did:

First, uninstalled Catalyst-total and then I removed all of the old modules from previous kernels:

# rm -rf /lib/modules/extramodules-3.3-ARCH/

# rm -rf /lib/modules/

Then I rebooted and ran pacman -Su afterwards which installed glibc just fine. After glibc updated, I proceeded to reinstall catalyst-total which worked fine. Then I rebooted and restored my /etc/ati/ and /etc/X11 files/folders from my github repo. I then rebooted again and everything works beautifully.


This time around, I have a better monitor placement than I had before due to today's catalyst update. I have my monitors set up with my main monitor on the bottom and then three other monitors above the main one. Well before it would treat them all as being in a single row which worked but was not perfect. After today's catalyst update, now all of the monitors are setup exactly like they are physically. This is how it looks physically: http://i.imgur.com/i4lv0.jpg

I can now move my pointer up and it actually goes to the monitor above my main monitor instead of treating them like a single row.

Anyway, I am pleased with today's update as the monitor placement works better and I did not lose my setup as I thought I had.

@securitybreach You've got a bunch of other stuff to take care of first. My guide focused expressly on catalyst-total, but you've got a bunch of other stuff listed too. Like a relatively ancient kernel, and all sorts of OSS modules.

brycec commented on 2012-07-14 19:59

@Vi0L0 The problem seems to be that the catalyst_build_module that's downloaded doesn't match its md5 in PKGBUILD. Nobody's questioning whether it works with the glibc changes, just appears to be a bad/erroneous upload to AUR.

@securitybreach: In which case you don't have those directories... Either you've done something wrong, skipped a step, or maybe you don't even have catalyst-total installed. What happens when you try and go ahead with the glibc upgrade?

securitybreach commented on 2012-07-14 19:54

Ok well I was using your method until I got to this and I got an error:


[root@Cerberus comhack]# mv /lib/initcpio /lib/extramodules-3.4-ARCH /tmp/lib-backup/
mv: cannot stat ‘/lib/initcpio’: No such file or directory
mv: cannot stat ‘/lib/extramodules-3.4-ARCH’: No such file or directory

brycec commented on 2012-07-14 19:02

The glibc symlink change gave me some trouble for my existing catalyst-total install - catalyst-total still owned files in /lib.
My first step was to find which files those were and move them to a temporary directory so the upgrade could delete /lib:
# find /lib -exec pacman -Qo -- '{}' \+ | grep -v glibc
error: cannot determine ownership of directory '/lib'
error: cannot determine ownership of directory '/lib/initcpio'
error: cannot determine ownership of directory '/lib/initcpio/install'
error: cannot determine ownership of directory '/lib/modules'
error: cannot determine ownership of directory '/lib/modules/extramodules-3.4-ARCH'
error: No package owns /lib/modules/extramodules-3.4-ARCH/fglrx.ko.gz
/lib/initcpio/install/fglrx is owned by catalyst-total 12.6-2
# mkdir /tmp/lib-backup
# mv /lib/initcpio /lib/extramodules-3.4-ARCH /tmp/lib-backup/
My next step was to manually edit the installed package manifest and change the entries for /lib to /usr/lib.
# sed -i -e 's#^lib/#usr/lib/#' /var/lib/pacman/local/catalyst-total-12.6-2/files
No output will be shown, you'll just be returned to the prompt. At this point you're clear to continue with the glibc upgrade.

(Note this is not a resolution to building 12.6-3, only a guide on how to un-block the glibc upgrade when it gets stuck on caatalyst-total 12.6-2's files)

For all those fellow AMD APU netbook owers, I haven't updated to 12.6-2 yet, but if it has the same problem as the 12.6-1 driver, then you can also get rid of the watermark using the script that is posted on the catayst wiki page. I tried it with my E350 netbook and after restarting X, the watermark went away.

Anonymous comment on 2012-07-09 07:27

I had the same problem with a E350 netbook.
I solved it by this way :
Reinstall the catalyst-hd234k package.
When it is done, copy somewhere the /etc/ati/control and /etc/ati/signature files.
Reinstall the new catalyst package and overwrite these two files with the ones you saved.
When you will restart, the watermark should be disapeared.

heitorpb commented on 2012-07-08 20:20

I have a netbook with an APU C-50 (dual-core + HD6250) and I was using this package, but now I hava a watermark in botton right: "AMD unsupported hardware".
I still can use the graphics part, I can run gfl_glxgers and I got the same FPS as before. But I cant use aticonfig, it gives me "aticonfig: No supported adapters detected".

Anyone knows how to fix this?

I read up on this a bit and according to (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1757717) this bug was solved in 11.6; this package installs 12.4. If your catalyst-total install is up to date (which I assume it is) then this may be a bug to report upstream, as from what else I read it was a longstanding bug before with multihead setups. Maybe it isn't really squashed wrt your setup. Otherwise, I guess standard troubleshooting questions apply: are you on the latest version of catalyst? Are you running amdcccle as a superuser or equivalent?

securitybreach commented on 2012-05-26 07:13

Ok for some odd reason I cannot get the amdcccle settings to stay after I exit X or reboot. I added a second video card/4th monitor but whenever I configure the settings and reboot, it goes back to cloning two of the monitors and I lose my settings. The setup works fine in windows so I know that it works correctly but I cannot figure out why amdcccle loses it settings everytime I reboot. Here is my Xorg.conf if you have any ideas:

I have been trying for two days to get this to work but it keeps resetting.

@acfrazier Would you mind elaborating a bit on the steps you took to get this to build, and what precisely you edited in the PkgBuild? Perhaps I'm being a little dense but I'm not following...

acfrazier commented on 2012-03-02 18:40

Ah nevermind, it's because yaourt was looking for .tar.xz, I edited the pkgbuild and it seems all is well now. It does take a bit of time to compress, but it won't otherwise install.

acfrazier commented on 2012-03-02 18:37

Whatever you did to "patch" this broke the installation. I was able to build the module on 3.2.8-1-ARCH fine manually. Now the upgrade in yaourt will not install.

Anonymous comment on 2012-03-01 02:25

The fglrx module wouldn't build for me using 12.1 as soon as I upgraded to the 3.2.8 kernel. Downgrading to 3.2.7 and reinstalling catalyst-total fixed it. I'm embedding the relevant section of /var/log/catalyst-install.log as well as a `dmesg | tail` performed shortly afterwards in the hopes that it will help someone more knowledgeable in this area than I.

Any help would be appreciated... I can't configure certain programs like Linphone because the webcam is on by default and X crashes everytime I open the program... frustration has reached an alltime high.

After upgrading to 11.10-1, I cannot get any of my videos to play full screen. I was using the xv output on both vlc and mplayer but now the videos will not go full screen with that video output. I then tried the other available video outputs but none of them display the videos correctly. Does anyone have a suggestion for a decent video output to use with 11.10-1 package?

Does it work with Xserver's IgnoreABI option ?

Vi0L0 commented on 2011-10-31 19:55

updated to 11.10,

summary:
- no xserver 1.11 support;
- GNOME3 is better, but still lagging.

Vi0L0 commented on 2011-10-12 21:09

we need to wait. Our waiting time would be much shorter if only ubuntu would add fresh xserver into their upcoming release, but since 11.10 they will use older xserver version just because of binary driver blobs - and because of this move catalyst's users of bleeding edge distros such as arch, fedora or gentoo will suffer...

[xorg110] repo contains not only xorg-server package but also packages with which xserver 1.10 will work even when system will constantly be updated, so it should work for months i think (we were working for 6 months on xserver 1.6 iirc). And if it will break we can always put some additional packages into the repo with which situation will get back to normal. There should not be much packages with dependencies set onto fresh xorg-server, not desktop enviroments nor big projects.
Yes, adding only xorg-server into pacman's blacklist would eventually break your X system' start.

securitybreach commented on 2011-10-12 20:17

So what are our options? I was a long time nvidia user up until a few months ago and I had quite the time trying to get the Catalyst driver setup with 3 monitors (one on display port). So I am basically just wondering my alternatives if any. Will we just have to blacklist Xorg-server until something is released or what? As a long time Arch user, I know that eventually holding back Xorg-server from being updated will break the system.

i mean providing such compatibility would be very hard for community, not for ATI
for ATI it should be easy, i believe much easier than providing GNOME3 support ;P

Vi0L0 commented on 2011-10-12 19:23

no problemo, and as for the last part of your question - yes, we need to wait for ATI, unfortunatelly
i believe that providing ABI compatibility with xserver 1.11 into catalyst is very hard and won't be made by community

im not using packer, but it does look like a packer error for me because xf86-input-evdev 2.6.0-3 from [xorg110] conflicts with xorg-server<1.10.0.
Be sure that you have placed [xorg110] repo above ALL other repos in pacman.conf, and if packer will still see things that do not exist - use pacman :)

securitybreach commented on 2011-10-12 17:36

So after setting up the xorg110 repo, I get the following error when running packer -Syu:

:: xf86-input-evdev and xorg-server are in conflict (xorg-server<1.10.99.902). Remove xorg-server? [y/N] y


Any ideas on how to get around this and also is there is fix being worked on or do we have to wait on ATI to provide it?

_odd thing_ - the URL has changed - was: ati-driver-installer-11-9-x86.x86_64.run , is ati-driver-installer-11.9.x86.x86_64.run, so - is now . in version, i actually found this 11.9 driver because of misstype :) LOL

this will be updated to 11.9 as soon as i will remove powerXpress support from it

@izza:
biggest issue: it would be hard to mainatin after some time - i mean all those kernel' patches that i would have to test on all catalyst's versions...
Also this would generate very big (and hard to read) PKGBUILD after some time - so this would brake KISS rule i guess. Is there any package in AUR with "version choosing" functionality?

+ there is catalyst' archive of used PKGBUILD's here: http://catalyst.apocalypsus.net/tarball/

An option to specify version, and including the md5 hashes for each in the PKGBUILD, would be very helpful.

@niqingliang2003:
yes, i can observe same behaviour whenever libgl (+ deps like xf86-video-ati) is present together with catalyst on the system.

Guess that paths to the libs are hardcoded and if libgl+xf86-video-ati packages are present then gnome3 will take it rather than those placed in /usr/lib/catalystpxp even if ld.conf is telling it to do otherwise.

I don't have time to look closer but guess that a fix will be to compile gnome3 whit some configure options/changing some source line. If someone will figure it out please share.
+ easy way is ofcourse to remove libgl+xf86-video-ati packages...

Vi0L0 commented on 2011-06-19 12:52

@endlessroad1991: i cannot confirm this problem. On both KDE4 and GNOME3 its working fine when logged in as a root (libgl package is not installed):
[root@xaos ~]# ldd /usr/bin/amdcccle
libGL.so.1 => /usr/lib/catalystpxp/libGL.so.1 (0x00007ff75606d000)
(...)
Same for other OpenGL applications.
It's also working fine when using kdesu or gksu as normal user.

So it's using /etc/profile.d script also for a root. I didn't even know it could be otherwise, thou i now know it could be a rule of ie. mandriva.
Maybe my system is some kind of exception, to be sure i will ask @ #archlinux.
I wouldn't be happy to add anything into /root/.bash_profile ...

Anonymous comment on 2011-06-19 05:20

@Vi0L0: Hmm, here's the problem:
/etc/profile.d scripts will take effect for every user EXCEPT ROOT,
so root doesn't have /usr/lib/catalyststpxp in his LD_LIBRARY_PATH.
When we need root privilege to run amdcccle(which needs libGL.so.1), libGL.so.1 is missing...

So add the path for root also.

Vi0L0 commented on 2011-06-18 12:24

ati has changed their 11.6 driver, thats why md5sums were different, changed files are:
/etc/ati/amdpcsdb.default
/etc/ati/control
/etc/ati/signature
so it means that some new hardware is supported.

I'm not bumping pkgrel - i don't want users to perform update which is unnecessery for them - although if your hardware was not supported yesterday by 11.6, you should check today's update of this package.

Vi0L0 commented on 2011-06-18 12:22

before i start - it turns out that AMD's powerXpress support on dual gpu systems sucks: https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?pid=949991#p949991
And the switch amd/intel shouldn't actually work right now, it need more love and work, probably from us, community... for now at least catalyst/oss_ati switch works fine (reboot needed). More info here: https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?pid=937766#p937766
and (older version) here: https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?pid=935497#p935497

@endlessroad1991: basically such linking shouldn't be neccessary, even more - it will brake powerXpress support completelly.
It's because to make it work we need libgl package to be installed (your link will conflict with it).
Whole libGL switching gets place in /usr/lib/catalystpxp - this directory is forced to be searched for libraries in 1st place over /usr/lib directory (look at /etc/profile.d/catalystpxp.sh). Switching scripts are here: /usr/lib/fglrx or /usr/lib64/fglrx (aticonfig need it to be placed in lib64)

Anonymous comment on 2011-06-18 07:50

ln -s /usr/lib/catalyststpxp/libGL.so /usr/lib/libGL.so.1

solves the libGL.so.1 not found problem, and works properly.

@Vi0L0: consider add this line to PKGBUILD?
And we may need to create a symbol link for libGL.so also.

/etc/ati/control
/etc/ati/signature
I don't know what impact those files have, maybe some bugfixing, maybe adding new hardware support. Anyway it's changing nothing in GNOME3 support.

Vi0L0 commented on 2011-05-13 10:53

@Neuro:
i'm working on it. Unfortunatelly it's not that easy mainly because of:
- pacman's conflicts - this powerXpress support = linking /usr/lib/libGL.so.1.2 to /usr/lib/fglrx/fglrx-libGL.so.1.2 OR to /usr/lib/FGL.renamed.libGL.so.1.2, where FGL.renamed.libGL.so.1.2 is libGL.so.1.2 from libgl package. Same thing for libglx. I still don't know how to solve updating libgl package after updating catalyst's packages - guess that user will have to remove link /usr/lib/libGL.so.1.2 before update. Same thing for libglx. I can add such remove into catalyst_build_module script, but user will have to manually run it before libgl update.
- hardcoded /usr/lib64 path (instead of our /usr/lib) into aticonfig binary, it was easier to debug in 11.4 - with 11.5 it's much harder and i don't want to break something so i will probably add aticonfig's funcionality into catalyst_build_module script.

Any help or ideas are more than welcome :)

Anonymous comment on 2011-05-13 09:31

lib32-catalyst-utils will be added to the package ONLY for x86_64, ofcourse.
If you got x86_64 please uncomment [multilib] repository in /etc/pacman.conf file so it could work.

If you got x86_64 system but you aren't using [multilib] and don't want lib32-catalyst-utils to be added - comment lines 26-29 of PKGBUILD
