This is a generated PKGBUILD. The full source is available at:

*** linux 4.9 with KALLSYMS_ALL=y is required

*** mesa-noglvnd is required The mesa package in Arch now includes the glvnd libGL, which conflicts with the AMDGPU-PRO libGL. You'll need to replace mesa with mesa-noglvnd.

The download link for amdgpu-pro-16.60-379184.tar.xz does not seem to be working correctly, does anyone have a mirror?

I'm afraid the issue you are referring to may point to two things :

I don't know how to resolve this and I don't try to.

I still use my alien dirty PKGBUILD adapted to nowadays :

@nmset: I totally agree with you. To put into the right context, I gave that "tip" in case of using dkms modules -- at the time I wrote the comment, it didn't worked with any 4.10.x kernels (out-of-the-box). Any tips regarding this issue? :)

@Gelmo I'm to lazy to retry install.

I wanted to know if with amdgpu-pro I can setup my monitor to 144Hz.

atm with xf86 I'm stuck at 120Hz :/

@zxvfxwing check the Xorg and/or lightdm logs when you're at that black screen. You should be able to switch to another tty (ctrl+alt+F2 maybe) and login without X, and navigate to /var/log. If it keeps switching you back to the other screen, it's trying to restart X/lightdm; disable then stop the service from tty2.

I downgraded to xorg-server 1.18 & 4.9 kernel, but nothing to do.

At boot I'm stuck on a black screen with a white "_" at topleft corner.
I gess lightdm.service doesn't want to start for some reason.

When ctrl+z to xorg119 and 4.10 everything works fine.

Any suggestions ?

I'm using amdgpu-pro with kernel 4.10 and 4.11-rc1. One goal of amdgpu-pro was to separate userspace and kernelspace binaries. I don't think one should downgrade the kernel package.

@simon_herbert: in order to use amdgpu-pro, *you have to downgrade some packages*, like xorg-server to version 1.18 and your linux-kernel to 4.8 or 4.9, for some reasons: ABI compatibility, header compatibility, etc. _In my machine_, here's a list of what I have downgraded in order to install amdgpu-pro properly (see final notes at the end):

* xorg-server (1.18.4-1)
* xorg-server-common (1.18.4-1)
* xorg-server-devel (1.18.4-1)
* xorg-server-xvfb (1.18.4-1)
* xorg-server-xwayland (1.18.4-1)
* xf86-input-libinput (0.20.0-1)
* xf86-input-evdev (2.10.2-1)
* xf86-input-keyboard (1.8.1-2)
* xf86-input-mouse (1.9.2-1)
* xf86-input-void (1.4.1-2)
* xf86-video-fbdev (0.4.4-5)
* xf86-video-vesa (2.3.4-2)
* mesa (12.0.3-4)
* mesa-libgl (12.0.3-4)
* lib32-mesa (12.0.3-4)
* lib32-mesa-libgl (12.0.3-4)
* linux-ck-piledriver (4.9.13-1) ¹
* linux-ck-piledriver-headers (4.9.13-1) ¹

[1] I use the ck patchset in my system, you can simply install linux-lts kernel if you want.

Other than that, it's all about your own settings.

Final notes:

- You can download older packages from the archive:
- You should install lib32-libomxil-bellagio from AUR:
- You should also install lib32-ncurses5-compat-libs from AUR:
- amdgpu-pro installation should have a wiki page of it's own! :)

Trying to install amdgpu-pro through yaourt, and already manually installed missing packages, I'm stuck with it saying that

"lib32-mesa: removing lib32-libglvnd deletes needed package from "lib32-libglvnd""
"mesa: removing libglvnd deletes needed package from "libglvnd""

What can I do to repair this?

Don't know if and how recent update in mesa/xorg-server/libglvnd did touch amdgpu-pro, but it touched catalyst badly ;)

If it also touched amfgpu-pro then mayb it will be useful?:
for now I've added mesa packages of 17.0.1-1 version to [catalyst]* and [catalyst-stable] - simply copied from archive:

After new version of mesa came out, I will build new mesa packages without glvnd support. Then I will most probably add new mesa package to aur.
