I was trying to set this up on a friend's computer running Manjaro and I get an error while running clinfo:

amdgpu_device_initialize: DRM version is 2.49.0 but this driver is only compatible with 3.x.x.

rm -r "${srcdir}/opencl"

and then:

mv "${srcdir}/opencl/etc" "${pkgdir}/"

how could that work?

@leidola: thanks for the update, you could always create a PR ;-)

The mid-term target for me would be to actually remove the libdrm fiddling and depend on packages like libdrm-amd (they released libdrm code for their hybrid stack recently*) and linux-amd (mainline). However, I've had problems with that setup which is why I didn't push an update.


Note that this branch is currently missing the file with the IDs. It could be acquired from upstream or extracted from the -pro stack

The following is a patch for 17.20 version. Works for me with my 470 + linux-amd-mainline-git kernel; not sure if the stock kernel works.

For me OpenCL apps don't detect GPUs without libdrm installed.

grmat commented on 2017-05-05 12:43

The missing library isn't included in amdgpu-pro, maybe it was used in the legacy driver, I don't know. But I can confirm that clinfo is still looking for it.

However, clinfo works for me and shows me both the GPU and Ryzen as computing devices. Have you tried if the amdgpu-pro stack on a supported distribution works with your hardware?

bluebugs commented on 2017-05-04 18:24

I am unable with both this package and the 16.40 in the comment to get clinfo to detect my GPU an RX480, but it detect the CPU a Ryzen 5 as device #0. I have been trying to debug this a bit, but couldn't get any error message any where. dmesg is all happy about switching to amdgpu and strace of clinfo only report a missing, but it doesn't seems to be provided by anything.

Would anyone have an idea why clinfo doesn't detect the GPU at all ?

GuSec commented on 2017-04-24 11:04

@leidola I was running fine under the very same circumstances (but RX480), i.e. 16.60, but am experiencing seemingly random crashes of OpenCL processes on 17.10 (both on linux and linux-git). For example, some cryptocurrency mining applications seem stable (e.g. Claymore Zcash) while others are unstable (Claymore Ethereum+Decred) and some completely broken; All of which worked on 16.60. Are you seeing similar issues on your end, or are you completely stable on 17.10?

@grmat I would very much appreciate a 16.40 version on AUR!

grmat commented on 2017-04-20 19:52

@parttimehorse: Thanks for your comment. I see you are using an older GCN card. Now I'm not sure if this card works with the older libdrm, but can you give it a shot and try it with the 16.40 PKGBUILD that Kant provided below?
Alternatively, I also pushed it there:

I updated the package again for RX 500 series support.

@Kant: With the new cards in mind, I don't think it's a good idea to downgrade the package in general, but it seems that there are in fact problems with older cards. Do you think we should push a 16.40 version under another name to the AUR for convenience?

I hadn't really tried it before, but I do notice that Einstein@Home does not seem to work properly with this package (at least on my system Failed task:
Not sure where the issue is, though (could very well be on their side), but I thought I'd bring it up since I saw you inquiring about the current situation.
