Installing amdgpu on CentOS 7.6

OK,

I like AMD-Cards, and I like Linux....

But from my memory, I never succeeded, to install the drivers of an AMD Graphics Card the last 13 years on a Linux system.

(Before a year, I bought a nvidia-card to overcome the problem, the installation needed 30 min)

 

So, I'm trying again to install my AMD FirePro W5100 at a newly installed CentOS 7.6

with elrepo-Kernel 4.19.10-1.el7.elrepo.x68_64.

 

 

I tried:

 

amdgpu-pro-18.20-621984

amdgpu-pro-18.30-633530

amdgpu-pro-18.30-674411-rhel-7.4

 

I always got:

 

[root@elster amdgpu-pro-18.30-633530]# ./amdgpu-install

[amdgpu-pro-local]

Name=AMD amdgpu Pro local repository

baseurl=file:///var/opt/amdgpu-pro-local

enabled=1

gpgcheck=0

Not using downloaded amdgpu-pro-local/repomd.xml because it is older than what we have:

But I installed the kernel-devel package from elrepo (kernel-ml-devel)

 

Nevertheless, the installer generated some lokal repos.

I don't know, how to remove, obviously, there is no -uninstall option at the scripts.

 

If I try to install that meta-package amdgpu using yumex,

I get the error:

 

Dependency Resolution Errors:

Package: glamor-amdgpu-1.19.0-674411.el7.x86_64 (amdgpu-pro-local)

    Requires: xserver-abi(videodrv-23) >= 0

 

Does anyone know the solution?

 

Greetings,

Holger
