Downloaded and installed 18.10 for CentOS.
MST doesn't work when using an R5 430 on Centos 7.4 with two Dell U2417H monitors.
Apparently I have to talk to Dell
I have spoken to Dell and 100% DP1.2 MST (DisplayPort daisy chaining) with the AMD Radeon HD 8570 / R7 240/340 OEM graphics card DOES NOT work Centos 7.4. As the graphics card only has one VGA and one DisplayPort dual monitors CANNOT be used. This is very disappointing on both the Dell and AMD front.
I should note Intel based graphics cards has DP 1.2 MST working with CentOS 7.4.
I know this post is super old but on the off chance that you still have an account with the forum...were you able to fix it? I think my problem may be a related to yours in a small way. I posted about my problem on the Dell forum here
