This is a generated PKGBUILD. The full source is available at:

Feel free to post issues and send PRs.

*** xorg-server 1.18 required
You will need to downgrade xorg-server to 1.18 for this package to install, due to a video driver ABI change in 1.19.

*** linux 4.8 or 4.9 required
This has been tested with 4.8 and 4.9 kernels. It's not likely to work on 4.10 at the moment.

*** mesa-noglvnd is required
The mesa package in Arch now includes the glvnd libGL, which conflicts with the AMDGPU-PRO libGL. You'll need to replace mesa with mesa-noglvnd.

It still doesn't seem to be working for me, so I ended up downloading the individual files from the github page. I'm getting errors such as, "/etc/xdg/gstomx.conf exists in both 'amdgpu-pro-gst-omx' and 'lib32-amdgpu-pro-gst-omx'". There are 4 other files which conflict on the 32-bit and 64-bit versions. Would it help if I listed those, or is that enough info?

Oh gosh I forgot to put amdgpu pro into the configuration file in ArchlinuxCN. Doing it now.

My bad.

The 17.40 amdgpu-pro packages in ArchlinuxCN repo no longer seem to exist?

Can someone please make a 17.40 package. I've spent a whole weekend trying but it's just beyond me.

There should not be a problem installing the libraries in /opt/amdgpu-pro/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/, because it is listed in /etc/ Despite this, I do see a problem with qdirstat being unable to compile, not finding libGL.

I think, though, that this conversation should probably be moved to a GitHub issue against archlinuxcn, as we are not talking about this specific package.

all the libraries were in /opt/amdgpu-pro/lib,
but my box expected them in /usr/lib/... and usr/lib/xorg/modules/...
maybe i forgot to install something?

@riddicc: which symlinks? I might have to change something in the PKGBUILD file on archlinuxcn.

thx for that amdgpu-pro-17.40 package on
it supports OpenGL quite good...
it is slower than 17.30 on Ubuntu 16: 29fps instead of 35fps.
it is unable to switch to 2560x1080@60 (just like amdgpu), but amdgpu-pro 17.30 on Ubuntu can do it.
somehow i had to add manually some symlinks from /opt to /usr/lib... or is it just my box? :)

I have included amdgpu-pro 17.30 in ArchlinuxCN repository. It is compatible with my 4.13.6 kernel and xorg 1.19.5. (I am using lightdm and cinnamon)

1. The libgbm provided by mesa is incompatible with amdgpu-pro so I have to package mesa without libgbm (mesa-noglvnd-nogbm).

2. The libglamor shipped with amdgpu-pro is causing problems for Xorg, so I removed it from the package and used the glamor libraries shipped with xorg-server instead.

3. I didn't install amdgpu-pro-dkms (which will fail to build on 4.13.6 and taint the LTS-4.9.56 kernel).

4. I didn't modify the mkinitcpio.conf.

5. I have added a x11 config file (which includes Device and Screen0) in the package to make the driver happy.

It turns out to work very well for me.

To add the repo:

Server =$arch

As the packages are signed, archlinuxcn-keyring package must be installed before installing the driver.

Not ffmpeg, but ffmpeg2.8 (a vlc requirement).
