AMD driver don't show in Driver Manager?

Post by bwe »

Mint Mate 64 last and updated.

My other PC with NVIDIA GPU stop working so I move disk to old PC.

This PC have AMD GPU but nothing show in Driver Manager.

But I can see CPU temp is ~60%, maybe this show that GPU don't work and CPU do all work for GPU?

How to see is GPU in use?
And how to install GPU driver?

glxinfo | grep rendering
X Error of failed request: BadValue (integer parameter out of range for operation)
Major opcode of failed request: 155 (GLX)
Minor opcode of failed request: 24 (X_GLXCreateNewContext)
Value in failed request: 0x0
Serial number of failed request: 37
Current serial number in output stream: 38

glxgears
X Error of failed request: BadValue (integer parameter out of range for operation)
Major opcode of failed request: 155 (GLX)
Minor opcode of failed request: 3 (X_GLXCreateContext)
Value in failed request: 0x0
Serial number of failed request: 23
Current serial number in output stream: 24

Thanks.

Probably you have `nomodeset` in your grub kernel boot options. Try to remove it and also remove all proprietary nvidia drivers if installed (https://askubuntu.com/questions/19486/h ... -parameter).
Check your hardware and find drivers: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Hardware_probe
