    Has anyone got fglrx working with grsecurity?

    I need Catalyst for work, but I also want linux-grsec to be running. As this wiki says, CONFIG_PAX_USERCOPY and CONFIG_PAX_MEMORY_UDEREF must be disabled, but after 2 hours of compiling the kernel with these options disabled I could not make catalyst to build it's module on Arch.

    Here's how I did it:

    • Download these files;
    • Edited 'config.x86_64' so that the above config options were disabled;
    • Made the package and installed it;
    At this point my custom linux-grsec kernel is running with those options disabled. However, when I try to install Catalyst it says it can't build the module (catalyst-hook or something).
    I just got back to Arch so I can't post any logs or anything, but I will do so tonight.

    How should I proceed?
