Did an `apt upgrade` today which updated Xorg packages. AMDGPU-PRO drivers no longer work, it cannot boot into the graphical desktop.


I tried versions amdgpu-pro-17.30-458935.tar.xz and amdgpu-pro-17.10-446706.tar.xz (the two latest versions as of today).


Xorg.0.log contains the following errors:


[    33.151] (II) LoadModule: "glx"

[    33.151] (II) Loading /opt/amdgpu-pro/lib/xorg/modules/extensions/

[    33.151] (II) Module glx: vendor="X.Org Foundation"

Here is a list of Xorg packages installed on my system:
