      amdgpu-pro-17.50 no longer compiles under the new kernels; where can I download the latest amdgpu-pro?

      Thanks!

          Hi there, the new kernels are working fine with 17.50 driver on Ubuntu and Ubuntu based distros.

           

          Im on KDE neon 5.12.2, 17.50 ubuntu driver and kernel 4.15.9

           

          Try this method if your are on ubuntu or other ubuntu based distro

           

          Install ukuu (Ubuntu Kernel Update Utility) you can see the new kernel updates, install the latest and remove older kernels installed on the OS

          Install Grub Customizer, so you to customize the entries

           

          Note, if you still have issue with the driver 17.50

          1º on the ukuu install a older kernel 4.13.3 or above

          2º restart pc and boot on that kernel 4.13.3 or above

          3º reinstall the amdgpu-pro driver 17.50

          4º restart pc (now it may cause a black screen on boot, if you fell that is stuck, then reset pc and it should boot normaly on second try)

          4º install the latest kernel

          5º restart pc and boot on the latest kernel

          6º if is working fine, now you can go to ukuu and remove the older kernels and go to grub and customize the entries

          7º done

           

          Note, update kernels

          1º use ukuu to install the new kernel

          2º restart pc and boot on the new kernel

          3º use ukuu to remove the older kernel

          4º use Grub customizer to customize the entries

          5º done

           

          Note, update the amdgpu-pro driver

          - its done in the same way than the first note, but with a new kernel

           

           

          best regards, i hope it helped in some way...

            Unfortunately I use Fedora 27, perhaps things are better at the Ubuntu camp.

            When I try the amdgpu-pro 17.50 at the newer kernels, the DKMS complains about the code and will not compile it. It seems some kernel constants have changed for the millionth time and therefore the source is out of sync with them.  I can now write a book on this topic
