Welcome to

Vi0L0 commented on 2013-05-01 09:54

silent update, no pkg rel bump:
- added 'catalyst-dkms' into conflicts table

@abbradar: well... i'm still adding mkinitcpio hook while installing package (but not while updating), because still there are custom kernels for which it will work. But you can safely remove this hook with command: catalyst_build_module hookrm
Just don't forget to enable catalyst-hook service.

Thanks for the answer. I have just used my own "catalyst-dkms" for long from times when "catalyst-hook" was mkinitcpio-based and I built and installed custom kernels frequently (so it was slow and painful to use), with custom service that allow me to use my old unsupported muxed PowerXpress and ensure that proper module gets loaded before X.

updated to 13.4-1:

- because dkms is not safe with it's fglrx compilation while system start, also: do we really need an extra package on the system and an extra dependency?

abbradar commented on 2013-04-27 10:20

Why don't reuse DKMS functionality? It does exactly the same thing as your service file. (maybe no re-compilation on shutdown)

removed Before from Service section of catalyst-hook.service

updated to 13.1-3:
To enable 'automatic re-compilation while system shutdown/reboot' testing feature run these commands as root:
systemctl enable catalyst-hook
systemctl start catalyst-hook

updated to 13.1-2:
SyncFirst was removed from the pacman 4.1 and so we can no longer force linux-headers to be installed in first place...

This mean that AUTOMATIC RE-COMPILATION WON'T WORK properly on kernels with separated headers

If you are using such kernel, like linux or linux-lts, you will have to run command like this:"
catalyst_build_module all
after linux update

Don't forget!
