>Has anyone gotten 16.40 to work?
I've installed it with a quick and dirty PKGBUILD adapted from the one available here. I have not noticed perceptible differences (laptop with Kaveri + Topaz, desktop with Ellesmere). I am not using the dkms stuff packed in the 16.40 release. glmark2 score dropped by 5% on my laptop(570) with respect to 16.30, but without amdgpu-pro, glmark2 is 650 ! On my desktop, glmark2 score is about the same with 16.30 and 16.40 (1950).

Has anyone gotten 16.40 to work? I tried out benklett's 16.40 fork but it failing patching for me (and unfortunately seems to have extensive PKGBUILD changes)

Driver 16.40 just came out.

Just for information :
Using linux-4.9.0-rc1-git :
On Kabini, amdgpu +/- pro works well, with the lockup with video file playback.
On Oland Pro, amdgpu +/- pro fails to launch a GUI.

I tested against linux-4.9.0-rc1-git. Unlike with linux-4.8.2, both amdgpu and amdgpu.pro work nicely. I did not try for hours. amdgpu-pro-dkms does not compile and seems not mandatory. Lockups still happen while reading videos. CIK and SI have been enabled. All this on my Kaveri+Topaz laptop. Will try with Kabini and Oland next.

I have the exact same error as nmset. I will also attempt to downgrade the kernel and try again.

amdgpu-pro-16.30.3 does not compile on linux-4.8.2. I guess it should be expected as there is not 4.8 patch in this package. Here are the reported errors :


According to web available information, amdgpu-pro ought to be the userspace part of the kernel amdgpu module. But this package does try to compile another kernel module. What am I missing ?

As a sidenote, linux 4.8.2 amdgpu module (not pro) constantly crashes the system (Kaveri + Topaz) with a lot of AMD-VI reported errors, no way for me catch them.

Both work well with linux 4.7.6, apart from the lockup with video playback mentioned below.

1: It was just backgroundinfo why I considered changing to amdgpu-pro
2: I didn't see the update in the wiki https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/AMDGPU

Last time I checked it was experimental for 4.8. That is why I was confused I guess.

Today I can't be a volounteer, but I can try to install kernel 4.9 on a second disk and try to help out.

1. i believe it's not the place for commenting catalyst-test pkg, but fyi i have updated it more than 2 weeks ago to cover 4.8 kernel support, you probably only have to update it.
2. afaik AMDGPU-PRO is not compatible with SI, experimental SI support was just added to AMDGPU in kernel 4.9 (release candidate atm)
Amarildo [1] have tested -PRO on his SI card, and he catched segfaults

It would be good anyway to confirm that experimental SI support in 4.9 kernel is not working with -PRO driver - aby volunteer? :)

I currently have the catalyst-test driver installed on my computer.

I now see that the linux 4.8.2-1 kernel has been released, and this gives me a conflict when I want to update (catalyst-test needs linux < 4.8).

My graphics card is a radeon R9 280x, which is SOUTHERN ISLAND (isn't it?).
Is the new kernel compatible with this card and AMDGPU-PRO out of the box?

The information I have found is confusing to me. I don't want to make big changes to my system if it gives me alot of extra work. :-)
