[SOLVED]can't change creen resolution graphic card radeon RX 460

Post by davidMint » Sun Mar 12, 2017 11:21 am

I have linux mint 18 (Sarah) and a radeon Rx 460.
In the manager I can not change the screen resolution ; only 1024*768 is possible...
How can I fix this ?
Thanks,

Let's get a look at your system. At at terminal, enter the following command:

Code: Select all

inxi -Fxz
Post the output back here between Code tags. If you type, the F is a capital.

I'm not good with KDE but here is the AMDGPU driver download page. You'll want the Ubuntu driver.
AMDGPU-PRO-Driver-for-Linux-Release-Notes

You can also see if the drivers are already installed. Open the Driver Manager from the menu and check for the AMD drivers. If they are present, you can always just click to use them.

According to this page, the 67EF device is the Radeon RX 460. Run the

Code: Select all

xrandr
terminal command to find the possible screen resolutions for your monitor.

Here is the answer to xrandr. Bad news...

Code: Select all

xrandr: Failed to get size of gamma for output default

What is the make and manufacturer of your monitor?

Ok I have highlighted your problem you need a 4.8 or newer kernel and install xserver-xorg-video-amdgpu for opensource in the package manager.
or keep the kernel you have and install amdgpu-pro like suggested above.http://support.amd.com/en-us/kb-article ... Notes.aspx
Your problem is that the graphics card is running in software fallback that is what this means drivers: fbdev GLX Renderer: Gallium 0.4 on llvmpipe



this is what it should look like i'm just running development branch.

Thanks, I will check with a new kernel.
But can I say is that I have crashed my computer after the installation of the amdgpu-pro ! The screen is black and I have no prompt at all.
I can't do anything and I have to re-install all...
