amdgpu-pro drivers

Dear All,
it was time for new hardware (actually LGA 775 + LGA 1336) and I have bayed parts for complete new system, one part is an AMD RX 580 graphic-card. I know, it's overkill for Linux but I want to live within next 10 years like last one.

On AMD-site is neither a driver for 'Devuan' nor for 'Debian' … Notes.aspx but for Ubuntu.

Here … etch-linux just tell to modify the '/etc/apt/sources.list' but in the comments is written that's buggie.

On this German thread … tallieren/ recommend to download (for Neon) the drivers for Ubuntu 16.04, to read the 'ID' of


in my/our case


and modify accordingly



case "$ID" in
PACKAGES="amdgpu-pro amdgpu-pro-lib32 amdgpu-pro-dkms"

to (in my/our case):

case "$ID" in
PACKAGES="amdgpu-pro amdgpu-pro-lib32 amdgpu-pro-dkms"

I know that drivers are written for certain 'kernels' and my:

uname -a
Linux devuan 4.9.0-7-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 4.9.110-1 (2018-07-05) x86_64 GNU/Linux

Fact: I have no idea, can someone help me please?

Thanks in advance for any newbie explanations, links.
