I just upgraded from Ubuntu 14.04 to 16.04 in order to have access to more security updates and up to date packages.
However, to my dismay, Ubuntu 16.04 isn't listed on the supported list of systems for the Neptune XT Radeon HD 8970M on the Linux Download Center. Are there any plans on doing so?
For now I see there is a "AMD Radeon Software Crimson Edition 15.12 Proprietary Linux Graphics Driver" and I'm simply going to try that one out.
I'm getting the same errors as on Crimson 15.12 15.302 driver on Linux kernel 4.5.0
I was able to run the make script
For the first one it's in /var/lib/dkms/fglrx/15.302/build/2.6.x/firegl_public.c
- len = seq_printf(m, "%d\n", major);
+ seq_printf(m, "%d\n", major);
For the second error there's a patch here Patch for kernel 4.4.0-rc5 · kolasa/fglrx-core-15.201@a2418ce · GitHub
It's built now, but I don't know where to go after this...
