    Phoronix: Radeon Software for Linux 19.20 Brings RHEL 8.0 Support

    Quietly released last week was Radeon Software for Linux 19.20, the latest quarterly update to AMD's packaged Linux driver that consists of their AMDGPU-PRO binary driver option as well as the AMDGPU-Open packaged components using a snapshot of Mesa...

    Hi, Michael.
    I have made a script that makes it possible to install that driver in ubuntu 19.04. See here: https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=110795
    Also, I have noticed that new packages appeared in distributed archives. They are: opencl-amdgpu-pro-comgr, opencl-amdgpu-pro-hip, opencl-amdgpu-pro-comgr.
    I did not explored what they are yet.
    Do you know if AMD has some schedule on releasing their proprietary drivers?

      Unlike Amdgpu , Amdgpupro doesn't provide Southern island HD7950/R280 support I right ?

        They ported DXVK compatibility fixes from open amdvlk to closed one. It's not necessarily faster though, more like the opposite (apart from compiling shaders on the CPU).

          I notice that this driver supports very few cards. Do people really use the proprietary driver knowing full well that they will need to switch to the open one half way through the lifespan of their GPU in order to stay current?

          This isn't a complaint towards AMD (since they have provided great work in the open driver). This is more a query about user behavior. Do they really replace GPU every year or blitz away their OS? How do they get time for actual work!

              Well unlike Amdgpu(you have to explicitly activate Southern island,GCN 1.0 support, but it works) , Amdgpupro doesn't seem to install neither on Ubuntu lts nor on openSuse leap with my HD7950/R280 GCN card.

                Looks like the release notes include support for Southern Islands FirePRO cards (2100, 4100 etc...) but not the consumer cards.

                  Hi,

                  tried your script with Ubuntu 19.04 (up-to-date) and amd RX460.
                  everything installed without any errors but after rebooting, the system freeze at:

                  [OK] started GNOME display manager
