Can somebody please share a new PKGBUILD for 16.40? Also it seems one should run linux-lts for the time being to avoid slowdowns.

Thank you @nmset, I'm currently using RX480, too. I'll try it. Will this be merged into the package's repository?

I've been patching 16.40 DKMS against linux 4.9.0-rc5. It builds after applying the 14 available patches, plus the following patch applied as 0015 :


0013-Remove-dependency-on-System.map.patch has to be modified, discarding the last lines that delete a/amd/backport/symbols.

My final impression is that it's useless to use the DKMS package. glmark2 score has not changed at all. Worse, this older driver does not activate powerplay on my Topaz discrete GPU, and the laptop becomes hot and noisy. dmesg reveals '[drm] Initialized amdgpu 3.2.0 20150101' with the DKMS build, while the 4.9.0-rc5 module's version is 3.8.0.

@Paullux : The DKMS package is not an obligation. As I said below, I'm using 16.40 with a dirty PKGBUILD on my laptop having Kaveri+Topaz, and on my desktop with RX480.

I avoided 4.8.x because 4.9 stable will be out soon.

The driver needs DKMS to work...

joshua5201 commented on 2016-11-20 13:48

Does anyone succeed to make OpenCL work on kernel 4.8? The display manager doesn't boot if I install all packages except dkms (dkms doesn't build). Or on what version of kernel this package will work?

If none, I think I should start to try patching this package..

Isn't this an userspace driver? I am wondering why we need dkms here.

Corngood commented on 2016-11-19 02:56

I'm sorry this package hasn't got any attention lately. Partly due to the struggle of dealing with many kernel/xorg configs and proprietary drivers, I've been working almost exclusively on NixOS (which I can't praise highly enough).

I will happily take PRs if anyone can get 16.40 working. The patches needed for linux-4.8 should be very similar to what's in NixOS:


Also the history there should help explain how things have moved around in 16.40.

I tried to work package, I forked the reposery of lhl on github.

I am stopping because there is error with dkms, and i don't know how to resolve this.

I have change PKGBUILD and one of patchs to BUILD and try to install the driver.

To obtain this : https://github.com/Paullux/archlinux-amdgpu

If someone want to continue or say me if i mistaked somethings.

The error is :

==> dkms install amdgpu-pro-16.40/348864 -k 4.8.8-2-ARCH
/var/lib/dkms/amdgpu-pro-16.40/348864/build/pre-build.sh: ligne 26: amd/backport/symbols: Aucun fichier ou dossier de ce type
Error! Bad return status for module build on kernel: 4.8.8-2-ARCH (x86_64)

Do you know if it'a possible to use amdgpu-pro for opencl and vulkan but mesa for OpenGL?

lhl commented on 2016-11-07 09:34

It looks like there were a lot of changes of the deb package names - including the complete removal of the computing package? I'm primarily interested in the OpenCL drivers, so just trying to modify the PKGBUILD to work. I've grabbed corngood's Nix patches and was slogging my way through, but hit a bit of a roadblock w/ the computing package: https://github.com/lhl/archlinux-amdgpu/commit/9ee13ab6d32a46351de1f3b39da02c75dd5e7c54
