  • Same result. Here's a pastebin of a fresh try with the PPA. Says it's trying to overwrite /usr/share/libdrm/amdgpu.ids , but I checked that location and there's nothing there. libdrm is empty.

    • OK, probably this error was due to an update of the system libdrm, that file went in a different package than mine. I temporarily removed it from libdrm-amdgpu1 package, building updated libdrm now. Please try updating again when the build is finished (some minutes).

      • Thanks, that's working.

        • Trying to get Vuklan working on my Mint 18 setup with Radeon HD 7850 and when I run Dolphin with Vulkan I get the message "No Vulkan Physical Devices available". I installed vulkan-utils and mesa-vulkan-drivers. Do I need to enable AMDGPU to get Vulkan?

          **EDIT**

          Nevermind, I got it working by switching over to the AMDGPU driver. Apparently Radeon has no Vulkan, only AMDGPU.

          • oibaf Do you provide debug packages? I don't see really those and GDB show /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/dri/nouveau_dri.so has no debug symbols...

            • Yesterday I updated my Mint 18 and couldn't boot the machine into a UI. I had to ppa-purge the PPA to get it to boot back up. Am I the only person who uses Mint with this PPA, cause I feel like I'm the only one running into these problems.

              **EDIT**

              Tried again and same Xserver error. Ppa-purge to fix it.

                Oibaf, is there any change that you could produce Debian testing or sid packages too. Is it a big job and possible if I get a uhbuntu one account and modify your repo to work with Debian testing?
                The launchpad PPA only builds against the Ubuntu versions, there is no way to build against Debian version from what I know. Some Ubuntu versions somewhat match against other Debian versions and it could work, but when using rolling distro like testing or sid problems may arise. You may want to set up a PPA and backport from Debian some packages like libegl1 and rebuild my packages.
                I don't have time to look into it myself.

                  I'm using Mint 18.3 x64 with Cinnamon. It's the one based on Ubuntu.

                  • Hi, since recently I had to purge the PPA, because my PC would boot into a glitch screen showing what appears to be old TV static (black and white random dotted pattern). Had to purge via SSH. If kept on for some time, it would apparently freeze into a white screen (maybe a kernel panic? I don't know). I am using Ubuntu Artful with Radeon R9 285. Today I reinstalled to see if the problem was fixed, but it remains. Anyone else with the same issue? Does people upstream already knows about it?

                    • I just tried the PPA today and it's still broken for Linux Mint.
