[SOLVED]? Problems with Vulkan + 7900 XT?

I just got arch re-installed after switching from an nvidia card to an AMD 7900 XT. I did a total wipe and just reinstalled from scratch. I'm now trying to game on this card, TF2 crashes instantly when installed natively, when installed through Proton it crashes when it starts loading a level, DOOM (2016) through Steam Proton loads but has a low FPS and flickers black, but only when set to Vulkan mode (it doesn't flicker but is still low FPS when set to OpenGL 4.5).

To get OpenGL running I had to install a few git versions of things from the aur. I initially followed this guide

Temporary Solution to get 7900 XT(X) to work

I ran this to show all the vulkan driver's I'm using:

$ pacman -Qs vulkan

Re: [SOLVED]? Problems with Vulkan + 7900 XT?

Ok, so installing the AMD proprietary vulkan drivers instead of amdvlk seems to work. The workarounds are no longer necessary as the pacman packages are apparently up to date. I still have problems with TF2 but switching to the proton version fixes it for now. I think TF2 crashing is caused by lib32-libx11 https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=282586

That doesn't look like one of the aur mesa trunk packages. It does look like it could come from LordHeavy's unofficial repo.
If so, are you aware it's build against testing /  multilib-testing repos ?

Other then that, the output of vulkaninfo --summary would give more insight in your vulkan setup .

Re: [SOLVED]? Problems with Vulkan + 7900 XT?

A couple things:
Looks like those drivers were from a previous attempt, they don't do anything by default if you have vulkan-amdgpu-pro installed, the proprietary vulkan driver is the only one I can get working right now either from the aur or pacman. That said I am also using mesa-git. Compiling from source  worked fine but I switched to the unofficial repo after temporarily trying an alternative.

$ sudo pacman -Qs mesa
local/glu 9.0.2-3
