Catalyst & xorg1.7
Hi, I noticed your post at debian.org when I was scroogling for info' on the
catalyst xorg1.7 incompatibility.
I have been using Arch for a while, & due to the rolling release upgrade system,
those of us that were using catalyst 9.10 found that xorg1.7 is incompatible.
Here is a list of files that we must not upgrade so that catalyst will still work:
xf86-video-vesa xorg-server xf86-input-evdev xf86-input-keyboard xf86-input-mouse
You can add xf86-input-synaptics to that list if you are using a notebook & it is
For those using 64bit systems, the upgraded lib32-* files work fine.
Going to the page in the following link:
will give you the date we got hit with this problem 31-10-09, & more importantly
the versions of the files listed above that are incompatible.
I hope I made sense to you in this note, & that this info' is of help to you &
any others suffering from this pain. The workaround at least isn't too
difficult, it just means downgrading 5 or 6 files.
