I tried the 19.Q1. I can't give you the output because when I install it and restart the computer it just stays on purple screen. Only way to get it running again if I reinstall ubuntu.

Re: w5100 ubuntu 18.04 driver install issue

At AMD Download the latest driver 19.Q1 is listed under Ubuntu 18.04.1 and not 18.04.2. Not sure if that slight update is the reason why you are having issues. Maybe something in 18.04.2 is not completely compatible with 19.Q1: FirePro™ W5100 Drivers & Support | AMD
