catalyst 13.4 causes system-freeze (segmentation fault)

Hi there,

 

I'm on Arch Linux 64bit with catalyst 13.3 (from Vi0L0's repository) and xorg 1.13.4.

With that configuration all is fine and very stable (thanks for that ).
However, if i want to update to the latest catalyst 13.4 drivers, the x-server,

which of course stays on 1.13.4, won't start anymore and my system freezes.

The xorg logfile gives following output:

 

[   407.324] (EE) Segmentation fault at address 0x890

[   407.324] Fatal server error:

[   407.324] Caught signal 11 (Segmentation fault). Server aborting

 

Here is the complete Xorg.0.log: http://pastebin.com/Lbx6i1mz

After a downgrade to 13.3 all is fine again.


My Hardware:     Acer Aspire 5820G
                         ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5650 (Up to 2715MB HyperMemory)
                         Intel Core i5 processor 430M
                         8GB RAM

 

Now, is there anything i can do to get this fixed?

 

Thank you very much in advance,
staffe

 

EDIT:       Just tried out the new catalyst 13.6 beta.
               I testet it again with Vi0L0's repository and the official catalyst-installer.

               Installation goes fine but i get exactly the same error.
               Also tried it with a fresh and clean arch installation - no luck.
