I have verified that this works for R8.

For those interested here is how get your Radeon HD 6310 Graphics adapter to work. First download the drivers here.

Then get the system tools required by the installer program with pacman.
pacman -Syu base-devel linux-headers

Unzip and chmod the run file and then execute the file. If it has any problems it will tell you what wrong or missing. After a successful install reboot. After the reboot all should be good to go. So far it looks pretty good but the only time will tell how good it works.

Copy of the xorg.conf file created on my machine.

Code:
Section "ServerLayout"
        Identifier     "aticonfig Layout"
        Screen      0  "aticonfig-Screen[0]-0" 0 0
EndSection

Section "Module"
EndSection

Section "Monitor"
        Identifier   "aticonfig-Monitor[0]-0"
        Option      "VendorName" "ATI Proprietary Driver"
        Option      "ModelName" "Generic Autodetecting Monitor"
        Option      "DPMS" "true"
EndSection

Section "Device"
        Identifier  "aticonfig-Device[0]-0"
        Driver      "fglrx"
        BusID       "PCI:0:1:0"
EndSection

Section "Screen"
        Identifier "aticonfig-Screen[0]-0"
        Device     "aticonfig-Device[0]-0"
        Monitor    "aticonfig-Monitor[0]-0"
        DefaultDepth     24
        SubSection "Display"
                Viewport   0 0
                Depth     24
        EndSubSection
EndSection

This install was on a BioStar A68I-350 DELUXE motherboard with built in AMD Radeon HD 6310 Graphics

I've had a chance to watch the video for a few hours. My setup is using HDMI out my HDTV 1080p. Performance is fair. Color an texture look good but you do get a few artifacts now an then. If your just watching TV it wouldn't be to bad.
Then I brought up XBMC. Oh well forget that. Performance there is so sluggish. Very disappointing to say the least.

I'd pass on this one.

Some helpful hints that were left out in the above
Choose Linux x88_64 on the AMD web page
Code:
Sudo pacman -Sy zip unzip
if you don't already have the unzip tool to unzip zip files.
Code:
sudo chmod a+x
I always have to think hard to remember the command to make something executable.
At this point my install fails due to my chipset (Radeon HD 4200) not being compatible with the AMD driver and the version of xorg-server 1.13 . As documented here https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/AM ... st#xorg113 and the driver version for my chipset is stuck at 13.1 http://support.amd.com/en-us/download/d ... x%20x86_64 since it's a "legacy" part.
