Re: [Ubuntu 16.04] Can not extract amdgpu-pro archive

As of today this is still an issue, I've tried Chrome and Firefox under Ubuntu 16.04 as well as Chrome and Edge under windows and ended up with the same corrupted archive based on a common MD5 sum across all the files.

From: https://www2.ati.com/drivers/linux/ubuntu/amdgpu-pro-17.30-465504.tar.xz

$ md5sum ./amdgpu-pro-17.30-465504.tar.xz

7f726483dffcc1df44ef4d65b86c6655  ./amdgpu-pro-17.30-465504.tar.xz

$ tar -Jxvf amdgpu-pro-17.30-465504.tar.xz

xz: (stdin): File format not recognized

tar: Child returned status 1

tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now

$ unxz ./amdgpu-pro-17.30-465504.tar.xz

unxz: ./amdgpu-pro-17.30-465504.tar.xz: File format not recognized

Any assistance from the AMD driver build side would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Re: [Ubuntu 16.04] Can not extract amdgpu-pro archive

Solved - 'ish.

Confirmed some of the mirrors that AMD/Akami load balance to appear to have bad copies of the driver.

I kept hammering the download link in Chrome under Ubuntu 16.04 since I noticed on a packet capture that the download was sending to an Akami edge server in hopes I'd get routed to a different one and get a good archive. Eventually I did and was able to expand the archive. If any AMD support is monitoring I unfortunately didn't capture the IP or the server that worked vs the ones that don't (or even confirm they're different servers) but I'm guessing you have better ways to debug this

anyway.

Details below.

Re: [Ubuntu 16.04] Can not extract amdgpu-pro archive

Its actually not a problem with corrupt drivers, but rather that you've not referenced the needed referer in your download request.  AMD's website is setup in such a way that you cannot download the file directly without going through a referer first, like so:

wget --referer=http://support.amd.com https://www2.ati.com/drivers/linux/beta/ubuntu/amdgpu-pro-17.40-483984.tar.xz

with the above reference, you should be able to download the complete file instead of just a few KB.

Re: [Ubuntu 16.04] Can not extract amdgpu-pro archive

Hi,

I have been trying to download and extract the amdgpu-pro driver for sometime now with no success. The driver release is 17.50.

It seems like the archive is broken;

$ tar -Jxvf amdgpu-pro-17.50-511655.tar.xz

xz: (stdin): File format not recognized

tar: Child returned status 1

tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now

Downloading it multiple times, (browser or wget) yielded the same md5sum so I expect that the file is downloading completely;

$ wget -O amdgpu-pro-17.50-511655.tar.xz --referer=http://support.amd.com https://www2.ati.com/drivers/linux/ubuntu/amdgpu-pro-17.50-511655.tar.xz

I am not able to find any md5 sum of the archive on-line, can anyone crosscheck the md5sum for this particular release.

Re: [Ubuntu 16.04] Can not extract amdgpu-pro archive

Finally managed to download a good copy:

filename: amdgpu-pro-17.50-511655.tar.xz

correct file type: XZ compressed data

sha1sum: cbf07003372047c02179ba91adb23e0ef1d114fb

md5sum: 7c3da10af92f6e259bd5d2b250a70c91

I keep it online temporarily for all the lost souls out there who have the same problem:

http://www.ferenczi.eu/download/amdgpu-pro-17.50-511655.tar.xz

It will be removed after some time.

Please verify the checksum after downloading.

Please also confirm the above checksum with original good downloads in a reply to this post, so people can trust the above mirror.

For AMD and its CDN provider: Please do something with it. This situation is ridiculous! I hope you don't have the same approach to the security of your servers as well...

The download link is bad. 

AMD needs to fix the download link.

Made this account just to thank you. Spent like two hours trying to figure out what was wrong with Tar and then another hour downloading bad driver packages. Thanks for this link.
