  • Can not get vulkan to work on ubuntu

    Sorry for my newbie question, but I don't know where else to ask. I have tried several other forums, but here is my problem.

    I have an amd radeon r9 390 gpu. Using Ubuntu 16.04 - kernel: 4.14.6-041406-generic

    I am using oibaf's ppa https://launchpad.net/~oibaf/+archiv...aphics-drivers

    "glxinfo | grep OpenGL"

    Gives the following output:

    OpenGL vendor string: X.Org
    OpenGL renderer string: AMD HAWAII (DRM 2.50.0 / 4.14.6-041406-generic, LLVM 5.0.1)
    OpenGL core profile version string: 4.5 (Core Profile) Mesa 17.4.0-devel
    OpenGL core profile shading language version string: 4.50
    OpenGL core profile context flags: (none)
    OpenGL core profile profile mask: core profile
    OpenGL core profile extensions:
    OpenGL version string: 3.0 Mesa 17.4.0-devel
    OpenGL shading language version string: 1.30
    OpenGL context flags: (none)
    OpenGL extensions:
    OpenGL ES profile version string: OpenGL ES 3.1 Mesa 17.4.0-devel
    OpenGL ES profile shading language version string: OpenGL ES GLSL ES 3.10
    OpenGL ES profile extensions:


    --------------------------------------------------------------------

    lspci -k | grep -EA3 'VGA|3D|Display'
    Gives the following output:
    VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Hawaii PRO [Radeon R9 290/390] (rev 80)
    Subsystem: Micro-Star International Co., Ltd. [MSI] Hawaii PRO [Radeon R9 290]
    Kernel driver in use: radeon
    Kernel modules: radeon, amdgpu


    My gpu is not supporting the amdgpu driver.
    When I type vulkaninfo, I get the following output

    ===========
    VULKAN INFO

    Can someone please help me with this? I have now tried for several months. I can't get it to work.
