This update seems to break Gnome on i686. More info see here: Arch-Bugtracker: #37528
To solve this issue for now you have to downgrade some packages and add them to your pacman ignore list in your /etc/pacman.conf.
We are working on a solution.
sudo pacman -U http://seblu.net/a/arm/2013/09/11/extra/os/i686/pulseaudio-4.0-2-i686.pkg.tar.xz http://seblu.net/a/arm/2013/09/11/extra/os/i686/libpulse-4.0-2-i686.pkg.tar.xz http://seblu.net/a/arm/2013/09/11/extra/os/i686/libgnomekbd-3.6.0-1-i686.pkg.tar.xz
Tip: KDE 4.11 includes a reworked OpenGL 2 compositor. OpenGL 3.1 got introduced. By default OpenGL 2 with the fallback to OpenGL 1 is used. If the hardware doesn’t support OpenGL 3.1 it automatically falls back to OpenGL 2 or OpenGL 1. When running kwin_gles KDE defaults to OpenGL ES 3.0 if present otherwise OpenGL ES 2.0 is used. Catalyst Legacy seems to have issues with this change. Here is a workaround to get it working:
#!/bin/bash export $(dbus-launch) export KWIN_DIRECT_GL=1 export KWIN_COMPOSE=O2 kwin --replace &
Save it as a script and place it into your ~/.config/autostart dir. It is also possible to disable compositing till upstream fixes the bug.
