    AMDGPU-PRO on Ubuntu Zesty with vega rx 64


      Hi. Please excuse me for my poor English.


      I am trying to use AMDGPU-PRO 17.30 driver on XUbuntu 17.04.


      My system is:

      • Sapphire Vega RX 64
      • Desktop
      • XUbuntu 17.04 (kernel version 4.10.0-33, Xorg version 1.19.3)
      • amdgpu-pro-17.30-465504
      • Envision P2273wL with hdmi <-> dvi cable
      • ms7796 ver 1.2 Don't know about bios version
      • intel i7-4790
      • FSP Epsilon 80PLUS 600W
      • 8 GB

      (Yes, i know that the graphic card is too powerful for the system, but that is another story)


      Installation of the driver was correct, but it has no effect. I got only basic 1024x768 resolution, glxgears are not working.


      It seems that module has not been loaded:

      $ lsmod | grep -i amdgpu


      Nothing wrong in X log:

      $ grep -B 1 -A 4 amdgpu /var/log/Xorg.0.log
      [    92.310] (**) ModulePath set to "/opt/amdgpu-pro/lib/xorg/modules,/usr/lib/xorg/modules"
      [    92.310] (II) The server relies on udev to provide the list of input devices.
          If no devices become available, reconfigure udev or disable AutoAddDevices.

      [    92.310] (II) Module ABI versions:

      [    92.312] (II) Loading /opt/amdgpu-pro/lib/xorg/modules/extensions/libglx.so
      [    92.312] (II) Module glx: vendor="X.Org Foundation"

      [    92.312]     ABI class: X.Org Server Extension, version 10.0
      [    92.312] (==) Matched ati as autoconfigured driver 0


      And here is the error in syslog:

      $ grep amdgpu /var/log/syslog | tail -n 2
      Sep 13 01:03:26 homecomp kernel: [    0.750455] [drm:amdgpu_init [amdgpu]] *ERROR* VGACON disables amdgpu kernel modesetting.
      Sep 13 01:03:26 homecomp kernel: [   18.175870] [drm:amdgpu_init [amdgpu]] *ERROR* VGACON disables amdgpu kernel modesetting.


      I dont know what to do next. Google says that the error can be avoided by disabling splash and nomodeset parameters from kernel cmdline,

      but when I tried it I got just black screen instead of system load.


      Does anyone has expirience of installing vega with the last driver on zesty?
