R7 370 won't show graphical boot screen on Centos 7

Question asked by brettcarr2412 on Apr 26, 2016

Hi, I recently installed the R7 370 graphics card in my new build.  After searching all the Linux forums for weeks i cannot find the solution. I'm hoping someone here might be able to assist. I have included my install log. What my issue is exactly , When booting Centos 7 will only show the text based boot screen, I need it to show the graphical Plymouth boot screen the my companies logo on it.

I cannot find a clear solution after trying several which made no difference what so ever

duplicating results into driver repository...


You must change your working directory to /lib/modules/fglrx

and then call ./ in order to install the built module.

- recreating module dependency list

- trying a sample load of the kernel modules
