AMD Radeon R9 270X doesn't work

Post by Gebonimo » Sun Jan 27, 2019 5:19 pm

Hi,

Before posting I've seen all the posts of the sticky notes but even tho after trying the solutions in it , i couldn't find a fix to my problem.

I want to use my ADM Radeon R7 370 / R9 270X/370 on my Mint 19.

I tried to first go with the driver manager but after installing the open source one, my gpu doesn't work. When i plug a screen on it, nothing happens (yes i did reboot computer)

So i've tried to install the amd-gpu one, but still nothing happens.

I'm kinda lost.

Here is the output of lscpi -v

Code: Select all

I did reinstall Mint two times before it worked but I managed to use it with the default driver manager.
