    amdgpu driver for linux can't be uncompressed

    yan_icanfly

      I download amd_ubuntu-16.04_kernel_4.14.14_v2018_20_818_ga_public.tar.bz2 with md5 code: 2d770e3cc691eec85c46c45dd3cb66b5, but it can't be uncompressed. where can I get the correct Embeded 917x amdgpu driver for linux?

          First you need to give your computer information as per AMD Forum rules : INFORMATION REQUIRED WHEN POSTING A QUESTION .

           

          Here is a list of AMD Linux drivers for all the various AMD GPU Cards : Linux Download Center .

              Thank you for your reply, but maybe I don't tell my question clearly. My platform is Intel I7 6820 CPU + AMD Radeon Embedded E9171 GPU , with linux 64-bit OS, I find the driver and download it - amd_ubuntu-16.04_kernel_4.14.14_v2018_20_818_ga_public.tar.bz2 ,  but it can't be uncompressed correctly.  And I download this driver for several times , but it didn't work,  so I doubt there is something wrong with this driver file.

                  Downloaded the nearly One GIgabyte Linux Driver file from here: https://support.amd.com/en-us/download/embedded?os=Linux_tmp%20x86_64 ( same Linux driver that you have I believe).

                  How to untar a tar file or gzip-bz2 tar file

                   

                   


                   

                  Tar file can come compressed or uncompressed. Generally that are compressed using gzip or bzip2. The program, tar, will uncompress both types and extract the files from archive.

                  DifficultyEasy

                  Steps Edit

                  1. Type at the command prompt
                    tar xvzf file.tar.gz- to uncompress a gzip tar file (.tgz or .tar.gz)
                    tar xvjf file.tar.bz2 - to uncompress a bzip2 tar file (.tbz or .tar.bz2) to extract the contents.
                    tar xvf file.tar - to uncompressed tar file (.tar)
                    tar xvC /var/tmp -f file.tar - to uncompress tar file (.tar) to another directory
                  2. The files will be extracted in the current folder (most of the times in a folder with the name 'file-1.0').
                    • x = eXtract, this indicated an extraction c = create to create )
                    • v = verbose (optional) the files with relative locations will be displayed.
                    • z = gzip-ped; j = bzip2-zipped
                    • f = from/to file ... (what is next after the f is the archive file)
                    • C = directory. In c and r mode, this changes the directory before adding the following files. In x mode, changes directoriy after opening the archive but before extracting entries from the archive.

                   

                  Couldn't Uncompress using Command Prompt from Windows but I believe these commands are for Linux OS Command Prompt.

                   

                  Here another Linux website with similar instructions: https://www.hostingadvice.com/how-to/untar-file-linuxubuntu/ :

                   

                  Usually a tar file is also compressed using either the gZip or bZip2 compressor. We’ll cover both.

                   

                  1. If Your File Extension is .tar.gz (or .tgz)

                   

                  If your tar file is compressed using a gZip compressor, use this command:

                  1

                   

                   

                  tar xvzf file.tar.gz

                   

                   

                  The options are pretty straightforward for this:

                  x: This tells tar to extract the files.

                  v: This option will list all of the files one by one in the archive. The “v” stands for “verbose.”

                  z: The z option is very important and tells the tar command to uncompress the file (gzip).

                  f: This options tells tar that you are going to give it a file name to work with.

                   

                  2. If Your File Extension is .tar.bz2 (or .tbz)

                   

                  If your tar file is compressed using a bZip2 compressor, use this command:

                  1

                   

                   

                  takes xvjf file tar .tbz

                   

                   

                  This is just about the same as the gzip decompression. The major difference is that the z optionhas been replaced by the j option.

                  If you remember, the z option was the uncompress (specifically gzip) flag, so it makes sense that this would be switched out.

                  j: This will decompress a bzip2 file.

                   

                  3. Mind-Blowingly-Simple Extraction (The dtrx Function)

                   

                  There are only a handful of people that actually remember all of the options for the tar command. Luckily, Linux folks are great at making things easier.

                  Standing for “Do the Right Extraction,” dtrx works as you would hope. The command should be simple for both gZip and bZip2 files:

                   

                  1

                   

                   

                  dtrx file.tar.gz

                   

                   

                  1

                   

                   

                  dtrx file.tar.bz2

                   

                   

                  Installing dtrx

                   

                  To install dtrx, just use apt-get:

                   

                  1

                   

                   

                  sudo apt-get install dtrx

                   

                   

                  I believe you can download and install DTRX for Ubuntu from here: dtrx : Xenial (16.04) : Ubuntu .

                      It is possible that the compressed file(s) have become corrupted.

                      You can use the -tvv option to test integrity of such files.

                       

                      You can use the `bzip2recover' program to attempt to recover
