Yes, AMD released new version of the driver. I'll flag the package.

Correct me if I am wrong. URL download never worked for me. So I had to download it manually from the website via following link :

Also there are many versions for different distros from above link, but I don't know which one to use (maybe Ubuntu ones since pkgbuild shows .deb file?).

BTW, does this package work independently for OpenCL purpose only? as in I don't have to install the GPU driver? Or do I need to install the driver as well in order for me to make OpenCL work?

@redshoe: sure, didn't notice there was a new version. In that case, you can just flag the package with the link on top of this page and I'll look for the new version.

However, while the download works, I don't find the 552542 in their download section, can you point me to that? Because it looks to me like they might have withdrawn this build.

@grmat: Okay. But is it possible to use the lastest version (17.50-552542) of AMDGPU-PRO downloads from AMD? Not the 17.50-511655.

@faddat: Honestly, I don't know. I'm not a so called "trusted user" ( and I haven't sought to be one yet. Also, it's my only package in the AUR. Unless some other TU would like to adopt the package, it's not likely to happen soon.

@redshoe: If you are already so sure that the file is alright, you can skip the checksum test (--skipchecksums). You don't have to modify the PKGBUILD first.

Any chance we'll see this moving to community any time soon?

I use this package from inside a chroot, and have to dance around quite a bit (create a user to build it, use pacman -U to install the package) to include this in my build script. It's pretty crucial for anyone using Arch and AMD to mine.

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.

Jhackler commented on 2018-03-18 04:46

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