• GNOME crashes when AMD drivers are installed on my Lenovo G585


    I just installed AMD Catalyst, enabled atieventsd, catalyst-hook, and temp-links-catalyst, and generated a xorg.conf using aticonfig.

    But when I rebooted my laptop. I ran into the “Oh no! Something has gone wrong.” screen with the mouse disabled (not in lightDM)

    Somebody please help me. I own a Lenovo G585

  • That error is from GNOME but it is [b:2tzht543]not[/b:2tzht543] a GNOME crash. GNOME hasn’t be able load at all is what that means.

    Although, [b:2tzht543]I can’t help[/b:2tzht543] you with that problem on AMD because the only AMD machine I have is about 8 years old now and AMD refuses to support it even on legacy drivers. Intel and Nvidia support to about 10 years where AMD abandons cards at about 5 years.

    I hope someone else can help but all I can think of is maybe a driver/kernel issue. I have had a couple issues even with Nvidia that downgrading my kernel solved it because of a break in the drivers. AMD though, I am not sure.

  • Where did you install the drivers from? AUR or ViOlo’s repo?

    Archlinux x64

    AMD A4-3305M Processor
    6GB RAM
    1GB+512MB Hybrid AMD GPU

  • I installed from ViOlo’s repo.
