Arch Linux distro No Longer provides pre-built package's in its official repo's you have to use unofficial repo's the AUR for accessible through the pacman package manager.

The installation instructions I've taken straight from Arch's own wiki page, linked below in the External Resources section.


   Make sure that you own a R6xx (HD2xxx) or newer card or the driver won't be enabled. You will encounter an error if you try to enable your display using Catalyst and a card older than the R6xx series. 
   It appears that Catalyst 9.10-10.11 does not support nForce4 motherboard chipsets.

Warning: Whether or not you install catalyst package from AUR, you will have to reinstall/update fglrx every time the kernel is updated. Otherwise, X will fail to start. Please remember that you can alway use catalyst-hook or catalyst-daemon package which will perform automatic fglrx update

Note: If you see those warnings:

WARNING: Package contains reference to $srcdir

WARNING: '.pkg' is not a valid archive extension.

while building catalyst-{kernver} package - do not be concerned, it's normal.

Can I simply say what a retcodiun to find someone who truly knows what theyre talking about on the internet. You undoubtedly know methods to deliver an issue to mild and make it important. Extra folks must read this and perceive this side of the story. I cant consider youre not more standard because you definitely have the gift.
