Re: Mint 17 and 18 and now 19 AMD GPU drivers! Look here before doing anything!

Does anyone think it would be possible to convince AMD to remove these tests, or at least have them produce warnings and then continue? It is obvious that the biggest problem is their installer looking everywhere to make sure it is Ubuntu. Any Mint user at AMD?

Audio over Display Port is working fine for me, so I feel over HDMI is going to work as well. Good luck!

Re: Mint 17 and 18 AMDGPU drivers! Look here before doing anything!

What I meant is that it may be tempting to copy the install script to a different name, edit it there to change Ubuntu to Linuxmint, and run that. Unfortunately one of the install steps is to copy the original script and name it the "uninstall" script, and that would copy the Ubuntu checks and then ...

Re: Mint 17 and 18 AMDGPU drivers! Look here before doing anything!

Try my instructions on the previous page https://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=59&t=248059&start=20#p1403233 This installs the amdgpu-pro drivers. It requires the x11 to be updated to the one that Ubuntu uses so that the drivers (designed for Ubuntu) work. Also instructions on how to edit out...

Re: Mint 17 and 18 AMDGPU drivers! Look here before doing anything!

An obvious problem is that there is no program to control the card. In particular I am unable to enable FSAA, I think (well at least Blender seems incapable of using it). Also of a concern to gamers is you cannot fiddle with the temperature and other settings. Anybody have any hints on what software...

Re: Mint 17 and 18 AMDGPU drivers! Look here before doing anything!

Success with mint Cinnamon 18.3 and the newest amdgpu-pro driver (17.50)! This is with a Radeon Vega Frontier Edition card, though I have reason to believe this will work with other cards if you download the correct driver. OpenGL and OpenCL work and seem to be at least as fast as Windows (which is ...
