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 !

dpack and nylnook

What resolved the issue for me was to blacklist the radeon module

sudo vim /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-radeon.conf

and add

blacklist radeon

save and restart

Atraii and arakmar

AFAIK, you have to set OCL_ICD_VENDORS in your .bashrc or .xprofile.

For directly use:

$ OCL_ICD_VENDORS=amdocl64.icd clinfo

Same issue than dpack, I'm also intersted in the solution ;)

arakmar commented on 2018-01-06 12:53

The same as Atraii, no platform found with clinfo. Anyone manage to fix this issue ?

dpack commented on 2017-12-28 16:21

When I try to run the clinfo command I get this error.

amdgpu_device_initialize: DRM version is 2.50.0 but this driver is only compatible with 3.x.x. Segmentation fault (core dumped)

How can I fix this? My Arch is fully up to date and I'm using kernel version 4.14.8-1-ARCH x86_64

just got time to look at the issue. In fact, some paths have changed (thanks @Noctivivans). I didn't experience regressions yet, so I pushed the update out. Sorry for the delay

@utsi: have you checked reason of segfault? I noticed that paths in 17.50 are little different which caused segfault of e.g. clinfo.

Here is my quick-ugly-fixed PKGBUILD (in my version amdgpu.ids is in /opt/amdgpu instead of /opt/amdgpu-pro, I am not sure if that's correct way to do it but at least it works; tested on xmr-stak and clinfo):

works with 4.14.8-1-ARCH kernel and amdgpu driver (without binary blob), I have no other opencl packages installed.
