Journeyman III

Driver installation fails on Ubuntu 16.04.03, Radeon Vega Frontier Edition

I can confirm this card works on Windows. However, on my Ubuntu machine the driver installation fails (using latest version amdgpu-pro-17.40-501128, command used: "./amdgpu-pro-install --compute"):

Building for architecture x86_64

Building initial module for 4.13.0-31-generic

ERROR: Cannot create report: [Errno 17] File exists: '/var/crash/amdgpu-pro-dkms.0.crash'

Error! Bad return status for module build on kernel: 4.13.0-31-generic (x86_64)

Consult /var/lib/dkms/amdgpu/17.40-501128/build/make.log for more information.

So looking into /var/lib/dkms/amdgpu/17.40-501128/build/make.log reveals a bunch of errors, the first of which is:

/var/lib/dkms/amdgpu/17.40-501128/build/include/kcl/kcl_drm.h: In function ‘kcl_drm_calc_vbltimestamp_from_scanoutpos’: /var/lib/dkms/amdgpu/17.40-501128/build/include/kcl/kcl_drm.h:332:9: error: too many arguments to function ‘drm_calc_vbltimestamp_from_scanoutpos’

     return drm_calc_vbltimestamp_from_scanoutpos(dev, pipe, max_error, vblank_time,          


Any ideas?
