Got the same problem. I just install RX 590 and amdgpu-pro 18.40 driver, Ubuntu start then the screen turn black and i can't do anything just reboot.
I don't have the problem on Windows 10.
Untilthis problem was fixed i have found a temporary solution, into the grub menu select advanced boot option and select Ubuntu XXX (recovery mode) and after resume startup.
Hope this can help you.
Same problem with RX580 on Ubuntu 18.04. I had to uninstall amdgpu-pro (18.40) and use the Radeon driver that comes with Ubuntu. Since I need to run OpenCL, I installed amdgpu-pro again with headless mode and it worked. So it looks to me the display driver part doesn't work.
Not sure this is applicable... AFAIK, AMDGPU pro uses same kernel module as AMDGPU without pro (which use MESA to implement OpenGL & Vulkan), so it should be.
That kernel module has issues with 590, at least with some OEM versions. There are number of patches which intended to fix this, but they are in testing now. You can partially fix this, you will be able to boot and work, but videocard will not boost, so performance will be times less than has to be.
With opensource driver you can do this by adding amdgpu.dpm=0 to linux image command line. Amdgpu pro kernel module may have another name.
Based on my experience with Sapphire Pulse RX 580 | Ubuntu 18.04.1 (totally upgraded) | AMD Drivers 18.40 for Linux all works as expected.
If we go to the link shared for you we can see another link for installation instructions
and clicking on it we will get there to Radeon™ Software for Linux® Installation webpage
and we can see in Overview the Stack Variants
It means that you are trying to install the driver designed for Pro GPUs (FirePro or Radeon Pro) in your system with GPU for Gaming or Entertainment purposes.
Please type on terminal amdgpu-pro-uninstall , reboot and type sudo ./amdgpu-install --opencl=legacy (for openCL support for Polaris chips based GPU,s)
