    radeon Rx460 with linux

    newportnew

      I have purchased radeon Rx460, whenever I install AMDGPU-PRO Driver 16.50 the system gives a black screen at startup and freezes.

      I tried fedora, centos 7.3, ubuntu 16.04 and fedora the same happens, what is going wrong?

      Now I am on centos 6.8 which is supposed to be supported

          use auto logon, ok its not safe that way to use centos 7.3 but there is a bug in the GDM greeter , i fixed by this way.
          install the driver, not reboot yet go typ in Terminal = as ROOT

          vim /etc/gdm/custom.conf
          and add these 2 lines

          # GDM configuration storage

          [daemon]

          AutomaticLoginEnable=true

          AutomaticLogin=david <----- log on name !!!

          [security]

          [xdmcp]

          [greeter]

          [chooser]

          [debug]

           

          Now reboot and hopefully you a go !! AMD RX would work full now.

          check !
          rpm -qa | grep amdgpu-pro

           

          Cheers !!

              Hi.

               

              I have the same problem (Radeon RX 460 black screen and freeze).

               

              My system is a fresh install of Ubuntu 16.04 with XFCE desktop and the last vesion of AMD driver installed (amdgpu-pro-16.50-362463). It doesn't work with and without autologon, I've the same black screen.

               

              My motherboard ASRock N68-GS3 UCC with an AMD Athlon II X3 450 (with the 4th core unlocked) and 8 GB RAM

               

              Any suggestions for Ubuntu?
