Manjaro is one of the last distros supporting Catalyst out of the box with our install medias. Since Catalyst itself doesn’t get maintained by AMD anymore, we wonder if some of our community members still use this old driver. Catalyst v15.201.1151 (aka 15.9) was released on the 23. Sep. 2015 and is the only working driver we can properly support. This also means you’re stuck on Xorg-Server v1.17.4.
With each new kernel we have to find a way to patch its kernel modules. Also none of our developers own an AMD card. We mostly use Intel or Nvidia hardware on our boxes. Therefore we assume our patches are working as they compile fine.
So my question is: Does somebody still use that driver and when yes, which kernel series is working with it?[poll]
- Yes, Catalyst is still be used on my end (pls post your kernels, which are working fine with it)
- No, Catalyst seems to be broken lately (pls post why)
