Catalyst not running after installing it in openrc


#1

so i couldn’t get catalyst to install and run properly after installing openrc 17, 17.01, or after using the manjaro-architect installer

So i tried installing it after the fact and it isn’t working. I install the headers and the kernels for the catalyst but after reboot i get the above error when i tried to run sudo amdcccle.

qt4 is installed also…


Manjaro architect broken now?
#2

I would try catalyst-utils-openrc


#3

ok then. moving on the the dev version…


Manjaro architect broken now?
#4

ok, so maybe you fixed it since i just tried it and the non-free didn’t work? will try again…


Manjaro architect broken now?
#5

or does openrc just not work with catalyst? Currently i’m trying to install it after the fact…


Manjaro architect broken now?
#6

installing that made nop difference


#7

You sure your card isn’t handled by the community drivers?


#8

In xfce systemd I run catalyst without any problems. I have an A8 with an 8553g (I think) apu and an A6 with a 6520g apu. Both run on catalyst really well…

I use manjaro because of overscan issues and because you still support catalyst


#9

I think what @jsamyth said is that are you still using the vesa driver?

Try checking it with this command :

mhwd -li

#10

Ah, I see.
Then why run opernrc?
… /Me Running and ducking…


#11

Because systemd is evil


#12

Yah well all I know to do is to run

Sudo aticonfig --initial

But that doesn’t help


#13

Also… I’m tired now… yesterday and today of trying to get openrc installed with catalyst has exhausted me a lot.

Plus today I walked my cat to the vet in the stroller to have his teeth looked at. I’m spent. It was very hot and muggy… 1/2 hour each way… Smoothie is fiv+ and has some need for teeth extraction…gonna have to plan a trip to Richmond.


#14

Feel for you, our little ginger thug has to go in Wednesday to have possibly all his teeth out, due to some weird auto-immune gingivitis (spelling?). The only people happy about it will be the vet & nurses he wont bite (again)… and a cost of £250.


#15

It’s okay, take your time. I hope in the next trial, you will successfully install catalyst!


#16
catalyst-input and xf86-input-libinput-nosystemd are in conflict

so lets stop making them conflict

we need some mediation here…


#17

well see… i’m using the manjaro architect installer and while the issue no longer seems to be with the installer but a conflict between catalyst and openrc at this point, i dont think it much matters which driver is loading because catalyst isn’t installing automatically like it should via the installer due to this catalyst-xf86 input issue. when catalyst installs, several -nosystemd files get uninstalled and one refuses to uninstall.

@jonathon is this a known issue that catalyst won’t work with openrc or is it something new… what should i do?

#19

I’m not an OpenRC expert (or even user now) - but I do know that Catalyst isn’t well supported any more. AMD have stopped development, and if you’re running Catalyst you’re also using a rapidly ageing version of Xorg (1.17 vs 1.19).


#20

Which is why i am ever so grateful for Manjaro being the only one to continue to support it.
