ROCm installation with Radeon R7 M445 on Ubuntu 20.04

I just did a fresh install of Ubuntu 20.04 and made an attempt to install ROCm for GPU computing on AMD Radeon R7 M445. I followed this tutorial: Install AMD ROCm — ROCm Documentation 1.0.0 documentation. Not sure if this GPU is supported by ROCm because I saw in several places differently.

When running the command "sudo apt install rocm-dkms", the output on terminal was:

Secure Boot not enabled on this system.
Done.
Forcing installation of amdgpu

The output I get when running" opt/rocm/bin/rocminfo" is :

Do you have any idea what is the problem? I tried many things I saw online, and updated everything I can think of or find (OpenCL, OpenGL). The installed driver for the GPU is "amdgpu".

Re: ROCm installation with Radeon R7 M445 on Ubuntu 20.04

You didn't mention which version of ROCm you are trying to installed Ubuntu 20.04

Go to this link at GITHUB that has the latest ROCm software available and it shows that it is compatible with Ubuntu 20.04 and 18.04.4 (Kernel 5.3) : GitHub - RadeonOpenCompute/ROCm: ROCm - Open Source Platform for HPC and Ultrascale GPU Computing 

The link above also leads to you AMD page for installing ROCm in Ubuntu.

Re: ROCm installation with Radeon R7 M445 on Ubuntu 20.04

ROCm version is 3.7.0-20.

Linux Kernel version is 5.4.0-42-generic.
The installation guide link in the provided link is the same that is I used.

See if by posting at AMD Developer's Forum which includes both OpenCL and OpenGL/Vulkan forums you might get some answers.

Post here first to get access to the other Developer's forums and to see which forum is applicable to your situation from here: Newcomers Start Here
