Hi, I have an HP Notebook with an AMD A12-9700P APU with shared memory. I tried installing the propietary drivers on Ubuntu 17.10 64 bits, but I ended up with a login loop and had to uninstall.

I don't plan on gaming or doing anything very graphic intensive, but if I watch a youtube video or something like that my screen starts to flicker like crazy even after closing the browser.

The driver I installed is amdgpu-pro-17.40-492261 I don't know if it's the correct version since the AMD page doesn't list the APUs and there are several versions of Radeon R7, and I don't know exactly which one I have.

Could anyone point me to the correct drivers, or tell me how to solve the login redirect loop?

 

Thanks,
