linux RHEL7 driver for FirePro M6100

Question asked by jacqkl on Jul 29, 2018

With RHEL6, instead of the default open-source (radeon ?) drivers, I am using

   fglrx-x11-drv-15.1?-?.el7.elrepo.x86_64.rpm

   kmod-fglrx-15.1?-?.el7.elrepo.x86_64.rpm

from http://elrepo.rog, for 2 reasons:

   1. to be able to lower the (native) display resolution (radeon is unable to do render correctly)

   2. graphics performance (radeon is much slower than fglrx, opengl ?)

 

I guessed the AMD hardware of my DELL PRECISION M6800 with following command:

$ lspci -nnk | grep -i vga -A3

01:00.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Saturn XT [FirePro M6100] [1002:6640]

    Subsystem: Dell Device [1028:15cd]

    Kernel driver in use: fglrx_pci

    Kernel modules: fglrx, radeon

 

Now the question: since elrepo does/can not provide the fglrx rpms for el7, which drivers can I use for RHEL7, (7.3. 7.4 7.5) ?
