[HOWTO] Install amdgpu-pro on LMD 4

Post by mrproper »

Small guide to install the driver for AMD Radeons from the AMd's web.
  • The drivers works for Debian Buster without modification since the version 19.30 https://wiki.debian.org/AMDGPUDriverOnStretchAndBuster2
    but in LMD 4 installing the package witch the kernel module fails to compile. This is caused by the detection of the OS in the makefile who configure gcc like an Ubuntu OS instead Debian OS

    Code: Select all

    ifeq ("linuxmint",$(OS_NAME))
    OS_NAME="ubuntu"
    To bypass this problem I modified temporally /etc/os-release changing the ID=linuxmint by ID=debian

    Code: Select all

    PRETTY_NAME="LMDE 4 (debbie)"
    NAME="LMDE"
    VERSION_ID="4"
    VERSION="4 (debbie)"
    ID=debian
    ID_LIKE=debian
    HOME_URL="https://www.linuxmint.com/"
    SUPPORT_URL="https://forums.linuxmint.com/"
    BUG_REPORT_URL="http://linuxmint-troubleshooting-guide.readthedocs.io/en/latest/"
    PRIVACY_POLICY_URL="https://www.linuxmint.com/"
    VERSION_CODENAME=debbie
    DEBIAN_CODENAME=buster
  • Restore /etc/os-release

    Code: Select all

    PRETTY_NAME="LMDE 4 (debbie)"
    NAME="LMDE"
    VERSION_ID="4"
    VERSION="4 (debbie)"
    ID=linuxmint
    ID_LIKE=debian

    VERSION_CODENAME=debbie
    DEBIAN_CODENAME=buster
  • The kernel module is compiled every time a new kernel version is installed, failing to compile with the default makefile. This is why I modified the makefile in /usr/src/amdgpu-5.4.7.53-1048554/Makefile (change the number according you package) bypassing the OS detection by add OS_NAME="debian" in the line 28

    Code: Select all

Nice tutorial, but it exist another method.


Update your kernel to the latest first before install the latest firmware, we need to be root:

Code: Select all

apt update

Code: Select all

apt search linux-image

Select your kernel to install it, in my case the latest:

Code: Select all

apt install linux-image-5.6.0-0.bpo.2-amd64 linux-headers-5.6.0-0.bpo.2-amd64 -y

Get the latest firmware:

Code: Select all

apt install git -y

Code: Select all

cd /tmp

Code: Select all

git clone git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/firmware/linux-firmware.git

Code: Select all

cd linux-firmware/

Code: Select all

cp -va amdgpu/ /lib/firmware/

You need to update the initramfs to compile the firmware with the new kernel:

Code: Select all

update-initramfs -u

Reboot to take effects

Code: Select all

reboot
Enjoy! :D

Cool way to get the latest driver, but you should note:
  • This install the open source driver
  • You must activate the backports packages from your repository to install the latest kernel

Yep you need the last kernel to install the last open source amdgpu drivers.

Per default the backport sources are activate in my packages.list, i don't use the default repository.
