If you can't get it working try this.

Download the driver directly from AMD website Ubuntu or Debian and place it with PGKBUILD.

You can check its sha256sum by ...

$ sha256sum amdgpu-pro-17.50-(version-that-you-downloaded).tar.xz

and it will give you the sha256sum, and then copy/paste it into PKGBUILD.

@graudeejs: It does work when you set the HTTP referer correctly. That's why there is a DLAGENT set in the PKGBUILD (wget with correct referer, cURL has a --referer option too, if you prefer cURL).

Hello! I just want to warn you that tar download doesn't work. You have to manually download tar from and place it in same directory as PKGBUILD.

No, as Vega runs OpenCL via the ROC stack, so rock/amdkfd+roct+opencl instead of amdgpu+libdrm+opencl. You'll have to look for ROCm builds/variants. Those should work without switching to the pro stack, it's open source but not everything is upstreamed afaik, so you'll maybe need to switch kernels and llvm as well.

is there a package of this that works with vega without switching to full pro stack?

I've also received a out-of-date note in Russian language, which I don't understand and online translation doesn't help either. I just know it was something about checksums. I can't reproduce the problem though and the checksum is correct every time I download the driver package. Please double-check if your download was successful and put more detail in your reports (in English please). You can also always have makepkg skipping the checksum verification if you wish.

There is a problem with the sha256sums after downloading amdgpu-pro-17.50-511655.tar.xz

Vega in fact doesn't work with this. Vega runs OpenCL on ROCm (see my comment from 2017-11-03), not the "old" stack, which is targeted here.

Thanks for your response. I tried that but clinfo reports:

Number of platforms 0

I'm starting to think that VEGA does not work with this.

Thanks a lot for you answer wandinstallation, your suggestion worked to fix this error for me, but Blender do not found any GPU "Compute Device" in its preferences despite that (On a Radeon R9 290)...frustrating !
