Exclamation [SOLVED] ARCHBANG - Can't Install AMD Catalyst Drivers


This is a fresh Archbang install. I removed the "xf86-video-ati" driver and then installed the "xf86-video-vesa" as recommended by some people so that I will still have a GUI if the driver installation goes wrong. I added the AMD Catalyst Repo and the GPG keys for it (https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/AMD_Catalyst) and when I try doing
Code:
pacman -S catalyst catalyst-utils
I get this in return:

Code:
error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)
:: ati-dri: requires mesa-libgl=9.2.0
:: glamor-egl: requires mesa-libgl
:: intel-dri: requires mesa-libgl=9.2.0
:: nouveau-dri: requires mesa-libgl=9.2.0
This is very strange because I do have mesa-libgl installed and it is in fact version 9.2
Does anyone else know what I can do?

SOLVED

Wow, this is really stupid of Archbang but apparently they install all of the xf86 drivers as well as another corresponding package with them for ALL video cards (nvidia, amd, intel). In order to be able to install another driver such as the AMD catalyst you need to first remove these

xf86-video-intel
xf86-video-nouveau
xf86-vide-ati

AND then after removing those you need to remove

glamor-egl
intel-dri
nouveau-dri
ati-dri

THEN you can go ahead and install for ex. catalyst catalyst-utils


This is really dumb of Archbang and should be fixed.
