    Has anyone successfully installed AMD drivers on Lubuntu 18.04.4? I need OpenCL acceleration and the default drivers are not useful for me, when i try to install it (I don't think it fully installs) I can't login after a reboot, and I have to re install.
    My system:
    Graphics: Card: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD/ATI] Ellesmere [Radeon RX 470/480/570/570X/580/580X]
    Display Server: x11 (X.Org 1.20.5 ) drivers: ati,amdgpu (unloaded: modesetting,fbdev,vesa)
    Resolution: [email protected]
    OpenGL: renderer: Radeon RX 580 Series (POLARIS10, DRM 3.33.0, 5.3.0-40-generic, LLVM 9.0.0)
    version: 4.5 Mesa 19.2.8

    That's the problem with "stable" distros. You get a new work computer, and are expected to install some crappy distro like Ubuntu, and it turns out that the kernel is too old to handle it.

    What exactly?

    I changed the I/O scheduler and a number of things. I'm not sure it's about configuration in that sense.

    And also, they don't do that.

    so, should I take this as "amdgpu-pro won't install on any up-to-date ubuntu installs" again? AMD was slow to update the driver after ubuntu broke it by releasing 18.04.3. (I still care about OpenCL support on PCIe 2.0 boards, and amdgpu+rocm don't get that with Polaris cards on gen2.)
