I can't fix your downloads and that has been discussed multiple times. Please read older comments and make sure you have the correct referer set. AMD won't allow the download without it.

Again, if you claim your download was successful, just ignore the checksums.

I also have the problem that the tar.xz file from the website is empty.

Got this issue when trying clinfo on an R9 390x. But with RX 560 it's fine. amdgpu_device_initialize: DRM version is 2.50.0 but this driver is only compatible with 3.x.x.

Not sure how to up that DRM, anybody?

PAL-based driver also works fine here with RX 560, great work as always. :)

Thanks for your test and comment. Vega users will be glad to hear that. I've just updated the package here as well to include the PAL-based driver.

I tested your PAL+ORCA branch, and it works well with my Vega 64!

I did some experimenting on kernel 4.16 and found out that the PAL OpenCL drivers work fine without the extra step of installing libdrm.

I made a fork of your GitHub project and created a minimal PAL-only branch in it as a proof of concept.

@eggz: thanks for your comment. Every recent Linux graphics driver uses DRM, that also includes the upstream amdgpu driver.

I have pushed two newer versions to GitHub. One is the updated 18.20 PKGBUILD (in branch 18.20) and the other includes the newer PAL-based OpenCL driver (in branch PAL+ORCA), which I have never tested because I don't have recent hardware. Are you willing to try this one out?

I installed V18.10 on 2 systems so far and they both end up with following error: error: OpenCL version 1.1 does not support the 'static' storage class specifier

Both systems use the opensource in-kernel amd module, not the DRM garbage. Installed systems had a VEGA (this is probably normal that its not working there without DRM) but also a polaris RX580 GPU.

In my eyes, this driver isn't working. reverting to V17 on the polaris GPU solves the problem.

Cool! Thank you for the explanation! I will use the GitHub one!

Thank you, again!
