How do I install AMDGPU-Pro on Mint 19?

Post by Dukenukemx » Mon Jul 02, 2018 1:01 am

I installed Mint 19 Cinnamon 64-bit and I edited the amdgpu-pro-install and replaced the Ubuntu with Linuxmint and now I get this. What do I do to install it?

Code: Select all

sudo ./amdgpu-pro-install -y
deb [ trusted=yes ] file:/var/opt/amdgpu-pro-local/ ./

Follow the clear, written instructions.

https://support.amd.com/en-us/kb-articl ... stall.aspx

You will note that there are no instructions for Ubuntu 18.04. Since AMD offer a driver for Ubuntu 17.04, presumably you need to download the correct driver for Ubuntu 18.04, which Mint is based on. Once you find that, you can follow the instructions as linked to above, but skip the sudo apt dist-upgrade command. However there may not be a driver for 18.04 yet.

They've had drivers for Ubuntu 18.04 for a while now, they're called AMDGPU-PRO 18.20. Yea the name is confusing. Also I am following the instructions. It says to run './amdgpu-pro-install –y' and that's what I did, and got that output. You didn't even read my post @catweazel .

Use this command, removing the -y option. That's the only way I could install that driver: ./amdgpu-pro-install

Or this one, to also install the OpenCL files: ./amdgpu-pro-install --opencl=legacy

Without the -y option, the installation will stop at one point and you will need to answer Yes.

Thanks @roblm, that worked. Who would have guessed the -y caused an issue? Now I'm gonna restart and test this out.

So far the drivers work and I can now use Cinnamon as the included AMD open source drivers in Mint 19 are broken. Minecraft wouldn't work before, and now it does. I can even use Dolphin with Vulkan support.
