BTW: black screen does not mean your system is dead… it only say: X is not running.
@Uriel as we have only this: https://antergos.com/wiki/tag/amd-catalyst/ in wiki, you may want to write a little WIKI entry for AMDGPU? If you want only you can open a treat on this and others can join to be helpfull.
As i say: May you try LTS Kernel not downgrade… LTS is now:
core/linux-lts 4.9.14-1 The Linux-lts kernel and modules
You can install this aside with your current Kernel… and choose on startup…
Then running systen under this kernel you may can build the needed e1000e module…
Alsawiki say you need a .asoundrc with some like this:
If you have more that one sound cards which use the same modules, you may want to define the card order. This can be done by specifying index and ID options to the module being loaded. For example
options snd-usb-audio index=1,2 vid=0x0ccd,0x0d8c pid=0x0028,0x000c
read first at the Sources!
May you try LTS Kernel if you do not need the “brandnewlatestkernel” because Kernel updates are more slow on other Distro maintainer of your Driver is may not ready for 4.10 Kernel?
And what says:
do you want to use nidia driver instead of nouveau?
Then you need to install nvidia driver first:
use nvidia-installer from Antergos repo is the easy way to do so:
sudo pacman -S nvidia-installer nvidia-installer -h
find suitable driver:
lspci -k | grep -A 2 -E "(VGA|3D)"
Will give you: VGA compatible controller: XY
take a look here: http://www.nvidia.com/object/IO_32667.html
If your card is not there you can use nvidia latest driver.
pacman -S nvidia
take a look f xorg is set up right:
have to look like this:
Section "Device" Identifier "Nvidia Card" Driver "nvidia" VendorName "NVIDIA Corporation" Option "NoLogo" "true" #Option "UseEDID" "false" #Option "ConnectedMonitor" "DFP" # ... EndSection
Make shure to not auto login to session (for stay save)
reboot and login to your account make shure to choose XORG-Session and not to use wayland session …

Do you have alsa-utils installed and:
pacman -Qs alsa
So now i see… two audio-devices recognized.
