If you want to use catalyst, remove the ati drivers first.
You need to uninstall the ati-dri package if you are going to use AMD Catalyst because the kernel modules will conflict and nothing will work.
I don't know about the latter, but the lib32-catalyst-utils package should provide mesa-libgl.

hey sorry to dig up an old thread, but i am having the exact same issue. This may sound very stupid but meh, how do i boot into a console so i can remove ati-dri??? and what did you purge? could a step by step guide be given for this. im going round in circles.
What happens if you press Alt-Ctrl-F2?
If that doesn't work, you can use a liveCD / liveUSB and chroot into your Arch installation.

alt f2 still wouldn't let me do it, i actually just sorted it, i just had to remove another file. but now this has now left me with the computer hanging when its booting lol. Ill start again cheers anyway brother
What file did you remove?
i removed xf86-video-ati.
i removed xf86-video-ati.
I think you meant you removed a package, not a file. What was the exact command you used?
i just uninstalled it via pacman, dont know why i didnt try that in the first place! then i was able to uninstall "ati-dri" and install the amd driver. To get the ccc working i installed the "lib32-ati-dri" package. it worked but unfortunately i think i configured something wrong along the way because the system was not using the driver and fell back to mesa. I have now found that using the ati-dri is fine now, i went about a odd way of getting it working to a good standard, as flash videos were really choppy and my computer would just get a random inactive black screen.
removed the catalyst driver completely
I forced the downgrade of ati-dri to an older version with "pacman -Ud" , then installed xf86-video-ati-git with yaourt, and then upgraded ati-dri again, rebooted and my computer and it works sweet now! Maybe a daft way of getting my system working but it seemed to work! so im happy
