    Fedora 20 + catalyst?

    Is there any industry insight to when Catalyst will support Fedora 20?

    I read somewhere that it doesn't work due to experimental wayland support built into some packages on fedora 20, so I guess it's not really AMD's fault it doesn't work.

    But is there a repo or something to make it all a bit easier than manually re-compiling?

      Catalyst works fine on Fedora 20 but the problem is Gnome-shell. The latest Gnome added support for Wayland and this conflicts with Catalyst somehow. You need to install another DE, like KDE for example, if you wanna use Catalyst on Fedora 20.

        Hi there, thanks for the info.

        I did install XFCE, and even launching it via startx as root (to take GDM out of the equation), it still gave me the sad face error message. It's more than possible I didn't quite get it right though.

        I do quite like gnome-shell, but it's no major loss to move to XFCE really.

        I'll try again tonight.

          You can keep using GDM because it supports xfce, maybe you need to configure something...

            @evanjafraser - if you like, I have a write-up with full instructions for installing AMD Catalyst 14.4 RC on Fedora 20 running the 3.13.10-200.fc20.x86_64 kernel on my blog. I am using KDE in my solution.

            However, I just updated my kernel this morning to version 3.14.2-200.fc20.x86_64 and attempts to reinstall Catalyst 14.4 RC have failed. Attempts to install Catalyst 14.4 final have failed as well, and I'm currently investigating. If anyone else is experiencing this, I'm receiving the following error when attempting to install the 14.4 driver: [Error] Kernel Module : Failed to build fglrx-14.10 with DKMS. Let me know, as I'm sure we could use one another's help in resolving (or fully understanding) the matter.

              Hi, if your kernel version is 3.14.x (as is in F20 updates) you may try to install Catalyst driver by recipe described here: http://bluehatrecord.wordpress.com/2...ns-above-3-11/ One of Catalyst source file needs to be patched, to build Catalyst driver on newer kernels.

                Thanks, Circulus! As fate would have it, that's actually my blog to which you just directed me! =) I just forgot to update my post in this forum after I found the solution to the problem. Thanks, though!

                  I expect the next Catalyst driver beta release, introducing a new branch, on monday or tuesday.
