  • How install AMDGPU on my R9 270x

    Hello everyone,
    First of all I am not a Linux expert.
    I have a driver issue with my mint r9-270X under 18.
    It not only offers me a driver except for my processor.

    Could you help me and if possible to the controls.

    Don't get me wrong but do you really need amdgpu support?
    Yesterday drm-next-4.9-wip from Alex's git tree broke amdgpu support for SI, today it's fixed. i don't even know what tomorrow brings. Amdgpu for SI doesn't resolve the problems, it makes new.
    ​​​​​​multigpu probably doesn't work with amdgpu at all untill boot with dpm = 0

    But if you want this and cannot stop dream about it so, @debianxfce's solution should works with mint as well.

    Or you can describe your problems with radeon and maybe someone will help

      +1 for staying with radeon and describing your driver issue.
      Test signature

        if I understand, I have to go under by debian 9 alpha 7 (stretch)
        Then I have to download the source of a git.
        Copy my file /boot/kern*/.conf

        Then "make oldconfig" for the management of all the graphic card Operates CGN

        Export CONCURRENCY_LEVEL = 4
        fakeroot make-kpkg --initrd kernel_image kernel_headers

        Question: Could you explain the installation

        #Installation Firmware
        sudo apt-get install firmware-amd-graphics

        #Ajout Of PPP
        sudo add-apt-repository ppa: paulo-miguel-dias / mesa

        I control via the command: dmesg shows
        I will have lines with "AMDGPU" ....

        I edit the file /etc/X11/xorg.conf

        -> In this regard I am DisplayPort Is there something to do and I'm also 144Hertz

          Copy oldconfig kernel current
          cp /boot/config-$(uname -r) /PATH/.config

            [*] Enable amdgpu support for SI parts │[*] Enable amdgpu support for CIK parts │[*] Always enable userptr write support │[*] Allow GART access through debugfs │[*] Enable AMD powerplay component

                #Compile on 8 Core because my FX8120 has take 8 Core.
                export CONCURRENCY_LEVEL=8

                fakeroot make-kpkg --initrd kernel_image kernel_headers

                Installation by double click because take Gdebi

                  according to the gpu Linus Torvalds patch works in kernel 4.9.

                  + {0x1002, 0x6810, PCI_ANY_ID, PCI_ANY_ID, 0, 0, CHIP_PITCAIRN},

                    Or go with Arch and don't deal with the mess that is Debian. Just download the compressed package I created two weeks ago (needs updating, will do that tomorrow), extract it, "cd" into the folder, and do "makepkg -s". Done, Kernel 4.10-wip with AMDGPU support for the R9 270X.

                    I'd suggest using the LLVM-SVN and Mesa-Git repos too. LLVM-SVN is updated every 6 hours on Arch, while Padoka's might be 2 weeks old.

                    If you actually decide to go to Arch, here's the compressed file I mentioned:
