• What's up with the catalyst AUR? Pacman not working either.


    Hey all,

    I have a fresh install of Antergos, first time. I have been trying to install the latest AMD drivers, as I am a gamer and of course the open source drivers don’t do so hot with games.

    I’ve also attempted doing some of the long-winded methods to getting the AMD drivers through pacman.

    Problem is, after various methods of installation and attempts, it seems that something with the Catalyst AUR is broken/gone.

    Can anyone confirm if this is the case, and I’m not being an idiot?

  • hello :
    did you fallow this ?

    https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/AMD_Catalyst

    and for AUR : https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/catalyst/

    Long Live Antergos

  • @nekosan Yeah, that’s what I’ve been looking at.

    For example, as I attempt to install it from AUR, it says Pacman is not able to install some missing dependencies.

    Another method, as I was following in a Youtube vid just uploaded a week ago, that doesn’t work either. With that method, you have to put the source of the download in /etc/pacman.conf. When I try to install it, it says that those don’t exist.

    Just a little frustrating, luckily everything is working fine, I would just like to game.

    I’ve installed a dozen programs now, through AUR, none of the same problems.

    EDIT: Here’s an error from the AUR install for catalyst:
    ==> ERROR: ‘pacman’ failed to install missing dependencies.
    ==> ERROR: Makepkg was unable to build catalyst.

    I did this in Manjaro a month ago, no problems there.

  • Just one other thing, with the add/remove program, catalyst does not show up in the packages list. Only the opencl implentation addon for the catalyst driver, nothing else.
