Post by dj--alex » Sat Apr 28, 2018 6:00 pm

Hello!!
Please help

I have simple PC and i fail install AMDGPU-PRO 17.50
no work x-server

Cannot install AMD Radeon R290X on Linux Mint 18.3 x64
I tries ALL and reinstall OS on my HDD 20 times . i annoy this.
but my program requires OpenCL under linux.
(and im developing game for Linux i need a test PC with AMD Radeon)
and i have some games working on linux.

I update my Linux from 18.1 to 18.3 but this is not helped.
I use a TONS of manuals and TONS of time for this crap driver.
i start work with PC in 20 april 2018 (!!!!!)

I tries kernels all without results
4.8.0 - blank screen, no X
4.10.0 - blank screen , no X
xorg.0.log https://pastebin.com/3LF6qNiu
4.15.18 - working on VMware instead amdgpupro (!!!)
4.16.3 - same.
4.16.5 - broken kernel, cannot even install on system, and very hard to remove
https://pastebin.com/v22N5pyU - xorg.0.log
4.17.0rc2 - same

i tries AMDGPU-PRO 17.40 but of course it cannot be run

Re: Radeon R290 X + Mint 18.3 x64 - no work

Post by dj--alex » Mon Apr 30, 2018 4:24 am

unfortunately nobody helpes me

i install win10, and driver installs success.
but this system is still no linux and in future i think test another OS.

i tries: Linux mint 18.1, Mint 18.3, ubuntu 18.04, Manjaro 2018.04 Mate.
Driver install on some systems results in blank black screen and nothing.
All desktop Mate i selected always.

Amd radeon drivers is really bad. Never buy AMD videocard for Linux.
only if you planning test compactibility your developed application on Linux + AMD or your planning benchmarks.

Well, if at some point in all that research you had looked here ...

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RadeonDriver

... you would have known that the open source driver (radeon) is the correct one, and of course installing amdgpu-pro broke it. ANY real dev would have been be able to see that.

I disagree. Under unsupported chips. that page states that the AMDGPU driver should be one automatically installed for the 290x (it's a clock-sped version of the 280 - same card but with an overclocked chip) in anything Ubuntu 16.04 and above. The 290x is a newer card than the R9 285, hence what I've said. That page also goes on to say a user may wish to install the proprietary PRO driver. I don't think installing the RADEON would've done the OP much chop.

I tries AMDGPU_PRO 18.10 new driver and 18.20

and i test on Linux Mint 18.3 two drivers and about 10 Kernels
and no one works!!!

I get tons on errors and no one works.
Sometimes driver seems like installed but of course no works
https://pp.userapi.com/c846221/v8462211 ... Qat0_M.jpg

Variant 1.
glxinfo | grep OpenGL gets
Error: couldn't find RGB GLX visual or fbconfig
https://pp.userapi.com/c840435/v8404351 ... 4pWfEI.jpg

Program gets error.
No AMD OpenCL GPU found. exit.

Variant 2.
Blank screen after reboot and downloading system

Variant 3
Xorg error
https://pp.userapi.com/c831309/v8313091 ... ljLKPg.jpg

Until i click on POWER buttond and select another Kernel Linux

I already HATE AMD Radeon production but i still requires series tests on it.
This producent even cannot create normally driver like Nvidia do it. Installs everywhere and on any videocard in 2 minutes.
With AMD Radeon any user waste time, many time... from 1-2 days to 1 months to JUST INSTALL DRIVER procedure.

Of course i test not only Linux Mint distros.
I trying use Manjaro 2018.4 but i cannot even boot in LiveUSB
I select boot and get black screen.
