You can use this guide to switch from free drivers to catalyst, after the installation:http://www.chakra-linux.org/wiki/index. … st.2FfglrxMaybe you would have better luck like this.
@dorisYou can follow the steps detailed on Chakra's wiki:http://chakra-project.org/wiki/index.ph … eo-DriversPlease ignore the part about Grub Legacy as for later editions Chakra uses Grub 2. Ask if you run into any issue, good luck!
Hello and welcome to Chakra! To answer no4, no you don't need to overwrite anything with new versions. Chakra is a (half) rolling distribution, so a "sudo pacman -Syu" will always keep you updated with the latest packages.
