HD7870 on Linux?

Question asked by mimamau on Dec 28, 2017

I can't get the 'Radeon Software for Linux Driver Version 17.50/40' working with my HD7870.

I tried each of the supported distributions, like Ubuntu 16.04.3, RHEL 7.4, CentOS 7.4, SLED 12 SP2.

The installation works on most distributions just fine. Sometimes I have to add the kernel command 'nomodesetting' for the installation or for the installed system to boot up.

I exactly followed the installation instructions for the driver. But on every distribution I end up with a blank screen after reboot.

I can login via SSH, but can't find any errors in Xorg.log or somewhere else. But than I can't even properly shutdown the system.

Can someone please point me in the right direction? The card works fine on Windows and macOS.
