Driver install fails on linux 7900 xt

Im trying to install the driver but it fails:

this is the error i get when trying to install the same error i got in debian too, i been trying different versions for about a week oday i saw there was a new version available to i made a new try every time im going to install i rollback my system with timeshift to prevent conflicts with drivers this is a fresh install and the timeshift snapshot was created just after install i jut want it to work.

ERROR (dkms apport): There was a segmentation fault when trying to build the module

im afraid this might be a problem with my hardware since i dont see anyone else having this issue

Problem 2

also when i try to make GPU Pass-through on KVM the guest system crashes sometimes i get signal when installing windows host and sometimes it just wont give signal and when i install the driver on the guest machine it freezes


I can live with the problem 2 but being unable to install the driver for rocm is sadly a must for me, so if this wont work i will have to return this card.

does another user have the same problem when instaling the driver with 7900XT?
