R9 380 the regular kernel broke when the mailine upgraded to 3.7 rc2 recently which forced me to reistall system d for anything to work. Radeon is blacklisted and has been for a while. I will attempt lsmod is a second once I restore my system back to state mentioned below.

Also on my phone at the moment, so bear with me.

Sounds like you have X, but no GL.

Which GPU do you have?

What happens with the regular kernel? Can it boot into

Could you check lsmod output to see if amdgpu is loaded, and make sure
radeon is not?

Oddly enough I cant seem to submit an issue on the github from my phone. I am using the mainline kernel, and regular kernel is not booting. After installing this light dm displays I log in and black screen. However gnome is clearly runing because alt f2 r then enter flickers the screen as if screen is restarting. Mouse displays over black :/

I've updated this package to the version from my PR. If you have any problems, post here or on

@thewisenoob - Did you try my PR, or just the original AUR package?

I had successfully gotten amdgpu working after compiling Linux with support for my R9 290X. It worked after blacklisting radeon. Once I installed this, X wouldn't start. I tried removing it and X won't start still because of the same error. I get a bunch of file owned by 2 things errors now too when using yaourt. All of them are amdgpu related.

I get a module mismatch error when I run startx after installing this. Any idea why that is? Does it have to do with this package being out of date?

@nirei: I've updated to 16.20.3, and vulkan has been working for me.

I got the 16.15.2 version working with CIK via this PKGBUILD: . That PKGBUILD basically extracts the whole driver package into one directory and symlinks paths to libs to match where the Arch system expects them. This works on a patched 4.5 and 4.6 kernel. No DKMS module needed.

For example, the following symlinks are set for the file from the driver package:
> /usr/lib/dri/ -> /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/dri/
> /usr/lib/xorg/modules/dri/ -> /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/dri/

I don't know which of the two symlinks gets used, but throwing in a hand full of such symlinks sure helped to get the AMDGPU-PRO OpenGL, OpenCL and Vulkan parts get running on Arch.

The same PKGBUILD also works for the 16.20.3 version of the driver (simply adjusting pkgver and _amdver), but i run into errors with the Vulkan lib when running Vulkan applications. OpenGL acceleration from the AMD driver seems to work fine.

I saw that a DKMS module was installed, but do I need to do something special to have it actually compile? I'm using 4.5.4 with CIK config added in my kernel build.

Has anyone got this to work on CIK at all?
