AMD Catalyst Omega 14.501.1003 (14.12) for kernel 3.18.x

Finally, I had time to upgrade my laptop to the latest of slackware64-current, kernel 3.18.1, and AMD Catalyst Omega 14.501.1003 or 14.12. When upgrading to the newest AMD Catalyst Omega, I have got error message after compiling fglrx module. As usual, I checked my favorite reference, that is, Arch User Repository (AUR) for the patch. I modified the patch so that only one patch file is needed. You can download the patch from my Google Drive. You can follow the guidelines below to patch the fglrx module:
  • change directory to the path where the installer is
  • run the installer as root (superuser):
    # ./
  • follow the instructions, at the end of installation process you will get notice that there are some errors.
  • exit the installer
  • at console, copy the patch file (fglrx-14.12_kernel-3.18.x.patch) to /lib/modules/fglrx/build_mod/
  • change directory to /lib/modules/fglrx/build_mod/
  • patch the fglrx source:
    # patch -p0 < fglrx-14.12_kernel-3.18.x.patch
  • compile the fglrx modules:
    # ./
    # cd ..
    # ./
  • reboot.
Enjoy your AMD Catalyst-14.501.1003 or 14.12 running on linux kernel 3.18.x.
