    AMD Graphic Driver unavailable OR Incompatible R7 260/265 GPU

    prateek_rm

      My current system settings say I have driver for Intel® Haswell Mobile

       

      I have i5 processor Intel® Core™ i5-4210U CPU @ 1.70GHz × 4 and AMD R7 260 GPU

      lspci -nn | grep -E 'VGA|Display'

       

      00:02.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: Intel Corporation Haswell-ULT Integrated Graphics Controller [8086:0a16] (rev 0b) 03:00.0 Display controller [0380]: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Topaz XT [Radeon R7 M260/M265 / M340/M360 / M440/M445] [1002:6900]

       

      I need to install AMD graphics card driver for Ubuntu 16.04 LTS I tried AMDGPU. Seems it is not supported , system goes in black screen loop mode and never comes out unless I uninstall it. But the official site lists 16.04 is compatible.

       

      Could you please let me know will there be an official driver release for Ubuntu 16.04 LTS ?

       

      Its ridiculous that we still do not have driver for that even though the OS was launched 1.5 years back now.
