AMDGPU-Pro on Mint Mate 19?

Post by mint-mate » Tue Jul 03, 2018 4:37 pm

I am using Linux Mint Mate 19 Tara - trying to install AMDGPU-Pro I have got so far as the installation command

Code: Select all

./amdgpu-pro-install -y
my problem is I get lots of unmet dependencies when I execute the command.

Code: Select all

The following packages have unmet dependencies.
 amdgpu-pro : Depends: libgbm1-amdgpu-pro (= 17.40-492261) but it is not going to be installed
              Depends: libgl1-amdgpu-pro-dri (= 17.40-492261) but it is not going to be installed

E: Error, pkgProblemResolver::Resolve generated breaks, this may be caused by held packages.
Is this even compatible with Linux Mint Mate 19 Tara? Can someone point me in the right direction. Thanks.

Make sure you download this version: Radeon™ Software for Linux® version 18.20 for Ubuntu 18.04

Hey catweazel, I tried your advice heres what I did...

Downloaded Radeon™ Software for Linux® version 18.20 for Ubuntu 18.04 archive to tmp folder.

Code: Select all

cd /tmp
tar -Jxvf amdgpu-pro-18.20-606296.tar.xz
Install
Once the archive is expanded on the local machine, run the included script (amdgpu-pro-install) to install the graphics stack. During the installation you will be required to provide sudo access, and also to provide two confirmations to:

-Install the packages, and
-Allow installation of "unverified" packages from the AMDGPU-PRO archive.
I think this part above is where I may have messed up, what I did was open the archives extracted directory in /tmp with file explorer and then I right clicked file "amdgpu-install" executable and selected run as administrator. I also did the same with "amdgpu-pro-install" file which I think may be a wrong interpretation of the instructions I am following.

I am following the instructions here; https://support.amd.com/en-us/kb-articl ... stall.aspx

But now I get these unmet dependencies when I run...

Code: Select all

./amdgpu-pro-install

Your Radeon HD 7620G is not supported by the amdgpu-pro driver.

The architecture of that GPU is based on the architecture of the Radeon HD 6900 series, which is also not supported.

Is there anyway to make it work or should I switch to a different distro?

You might try Mint 17.3.

Mobile and APU are not supported for Mint 18+ for proprietary drivers. Your options are open source only. For 17.3 you will have the old FGLRX drivers available. However 17.3 is only supported until 2019. As per the sticky at the top of this forum subsection.

The new vega based 2200g and 2400g may be supported by the new driver stack, but I cannot confirm that.
