Hi, I've got a fresh install of arch in which I'm having trouble getting x to start. The first time I installed, I started out with the opensource ati drivers and then installed the proprietary catalyst drivers directly using AMD's binary. This created some problems, so I'm starting over, this time skipping right over the open-source drivers and using the cataylst as installed from the unofficial repository. I'm yet to get X to start, so here's my install log. Any suggestions would be greatly helpful.
Which repo did you use?
did you configure the driver: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Ca … the_driver
karol saves me again from a rookie move. Forgot to configure the driver, and probably made the same mistake before I tried to start over with a new arch install.
I guess it's superfluous for me to say so, but I used the [catalyst] repo. Works pretty well now that I've got it all sorted.
I'm glad it was such an easy fix :-)

LOL, and after all of that, there's a new driver out today.
