@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!

@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: https://github.com/grmat/amdgpocl/blob/16.40/PKGBUILD

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: https://einsteinathome.org/host/12509020). https://einsteinathome.org/task/632989035
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.

Updated to 17.10, thanks for the notice.

Seems to work well with Hawaii. Could those who experienced problems update and report?

Just wanted to let you all know, that I've working OpenCL using version 16.60 plus linux-git (currently @ 4.11-rc5). Hardware is: Ryzen + Polaris (R470)

@grmat you can have my built package for 16.40, I found it on my hard drive: https://www.dropbox.com/s/20cbs4m39jsx92o/opencl-amd-16.40.348864-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.gz?dl=0

(I'll upload the .tar.xz for the original AMD files later if you need it, this was faster)

After extensive debugging why OpenCL kept causing my RX480 8GB to crash the system when ethereum mining with `VM fault: 147`, I have determined that the 16.60 OpenCL driver is basically broken, and the below `fixed` PKGBUILD (from @Kant) of the older 16.40 driver fixes everything. It's also great not having to use the AMDGPU Pro driver.

Thanks for the info. But if you like to stay with the old version, that's something different. However, the old url doesn't even work anymore for me. So, I won't "fix" this, obviously. Sorry ;)

Kant commented on 2017-02-05 20:45

I had to fix it because the source doesn't seem to work, here's the fixed PKGBUILD: https://gist.github.com/asdkant/10c1b6570d1547f9d28a1ea4fa185cbe

Removed out-of-date flag, as there is no more recent version provided by AMD.

Users that are updating from previous versions might need to run `makepkg --cleanbuild`
