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' https://support.amd.com/en-us/kb-articl … Notes.aspx but for Ubuntu.

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

On this German thread https://www.kde-neon.de/topic/amdgpu-pr … tallieren/ recommend to download (for Neon) the drivers for Ubuntu 16.04, to read the 'ID' of

/etc/os-release

in my/our case

ID=devuan

and modify accordingly

amdgpu-pro-install

from:

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

to (in my/our case):

case "$ID" in
devuan)
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.

Re: amdgpu-pro drivers

@Terence

I recently bought Asus 8GB RX 580 graphics card just for Blender 2.8x's rendering engine. Blender supports OpenCL for rendering.

It was on fresh installation of Devuan 3.0.0 in new partition (/dev/sda1) after spending hours to setup the AMD's graphics driver without success.
Here is the steps I've done to setup for RX 580.

Installed amd64-microcode, firmware-amd-graphics packages.

Switched to text mode during boot by removing /etc/rc2.d/S04slim

Created ~/.xinitrc

#!/bin/sh

# /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc
#
# global xinitrc file, used by all X sessions started by xinit (startx)

exec startxfce4

It solved "permission denied", "/bin/sh: Can't open /usr/bin/X" failures.

To start Xfce, run startx.

Installation of AMD's graphics driver

Downloaded amdgpu-pro-19.50-967956-ubuntu-18.04.tar.xz

I found the page and followed the instruction but it did not work out.
https://gist.github.com/kytulendu/3351b … 1ea3c95cbe

I extracted the amdgpu-pro package and moved to the directory
amdgpu-pro-19.50-967956-ubuntu-18.04

ran the installation script with options

./amdgpu-pro-install --opencl=legacy,pal --headless --no-dkms

I rendered few models using GPU compute in Blender 2.83.

I upgraded  kernel 4.19 to 5.4.0-0.bpo.2-amd64 before I tried above method.

Re: amdgpu-pro drivers

AMD themselves do not recommend the proprietary drivers for the RX 580 graphics card: https://www.amd.com/en/support/kb/relea … stallation

The open-source amdgpu drivers out-perform the proprietary versions for almost all tasks (check Phoronix) and Blender works just fine with the non-proprietary versions. Just make sure the firmware-amd-graphics package is installed.

Re: amdgpu-pro drivers

Got a RX580 installed on a Ryzen 2700X computer. Worked fine with ASCII and now with Beowulf with KMS driver (included in the kernel) and firmware. You need non-free added to the sources.list, you install amd64-microcode and firmware-amd-graphics. On ASCII you better pull firmware-amd-graphics from backports.

If you need some guidance, check out the Devuan.org website, there you will find some instructions how to set the sources.list.

No fiddling required with amdgpu-pro.

Re: amdgpu-pro drivers

@ http://dev1galaxy.org/profile.php?id=5581.
Yes, I know. It was a (failed) tentative/attempt to get 4k resolution.

@ http://dev1galaxy.org/profile.php?id=5048.
It's not (meanwhile) a question of `sources.list`, it's a question of to small resolution.

After long time and reading this http://dev1galaxy.org/viewtopic.php?pid=5067#p5067 I loose almost the hope to setup Devuan as main OS.

I will open a new thread for 4k.

Thanks for your answer, that's great.
I read about advantages of newer Kernel, newer Plasma5 and newer drivers, but... I'm newbie.

I installed `Beowulf` in the past in the VM and on NVMe. The VM give me only 1024 resolution with no chance to change it anyway, the NVMe give me no GUI; only text and cursor. This time, the VM give me full 4k-resolution and I hope to be successful with your help.

My hardware: x399 MB, TR4 1900 CPU, Vega 64 GPU (the x580 got my wife), 512GB NVMe, 64 GB RAM.
OS: Kubuntu 20.04
Target OS: Beowulf (Devuan 3), newer Kernel (5.4), newer GPU-drivers, 4k resolution and maybe Plasma 5.18.5 instead of 5.14.5, but Plasma is secondary/not mandatory. Another 'nice to have' could be 10 Bit deep color representation, but... maybe is only a dream at moment under Linux.
Target OS-details: Devuan-Beowulf, KDE, parallelized OpenRC. That I know how to but... I don't know how to start/stop GUI (you use xfce). Note: KDE is a must (for my wife), the only given alternative is "Astra-Linux" (I dislike this one).

Re: amdgpu-pro drivers

@OP: the post from @penguin is full of crap, that user doesn't know what they're doing and you shouldn't follow their advice.

Terence wrote:

Do not do that, that kernel is hopelessly outdated and only available from Ubuntu.

If you want to try a newer kernel than the 4.19 LTS branch supplied with beowulf then install the linux-image-amd64 metapackage from the beowulf-backports repository.

And to repeat: you *do not* need to install the AMDGPU-PRO drivers, they will offer worse performance than the stock open-source drivers supplied with the kernel (and written by AMD themselves).

Please post the output of

apt policy firmware-amd-graphics
# dmesg | grep firmware # needs to be run as root
uname -a

Your desired resolution will only be supported if you have the firmware package from the non-free component of the repositories so they are entirely relevant here.

It is possible that your monitor isn't supplying a valid EDID block (or perhaps the cable or connector is sub-standard) but the most likely cause is a lack of firmware.

EDIT:

Create an X.Org configuration file with a Screen section containing this option:

Regarding the backports-repository, I could install `Header files for Linux 5.4.0-0.bpo.2-amd64` from `backports/main` but... there are also things like `libreoffice 1.7` and generally I made bad experience with backports at least under kubuntu.

You are right. For comparison, I made a list of *ubuntu, Debian and Devuan and all three Distros use completely different Kernel even between different flavour (by ubuntu some times).

And you are also right about AMD-Drivers. I was accustomed to use (until three years ago) NVidia proprietary drivers and continue to do so also at (my) beginning with AMD-GPU. Not only daily update/upgrade of those drivers (PPA) but also daily change of display-quality with system-crash/freezing. I stop this.

It's not (meanwhile) a question of `sources.list`, it's a question of to small resolution

Your desired resolution will only be supported if you have the firmware package from the non-free component of the repositories so they are entirely relevant here.

It is possible that your monitor isn't supplying a valid EDID block (or perhaps the cable or connector is sub-standard) but the most likely cause is a lack of firmware.

I install each OS with `non-free` components due online games (for my wife) using `flash`, netflix, etc. and I'm sure to have installed `firmware-amd-graphics` on beowulf want not start at all on my main machine giving me only black-screen and cursor. By the way, this is not newbie-friendly at all, I mean: this package, if crucial for displaying even 1k (1920*1080) and today even smart-phones has such resolution.

and no, I don't touch cable or move hardware, just insert USB-stick with Devuan, install it and got black screen.

If you ask me (as newbie) I would say: Devuan take anyway

Supported established timings:

with/at 1024 instead of

Supported detailed timing:

or

Printing probed modes for output DisplayPort-2

with/at 4k.

But, that's just nagging from my side. Facts are:
1. Installed former Devuan3.iso in VM and cannot get a bigger resolution than 1024, no matter what I try.
2. Installed former Devuan3.iso as main system and got black screen, can login, make apdates, install software but was not able to start GUI.
3. Installed newer Devuan3 in VM and (thank you) this time can I get under `systemsettings5` the full choice on resolutions.
4. In the link you provide (was anyway useful) is not explained how to create the necessary file and how to point the system during start to look at this file, besides no explanation on how to start applications (not supporting 10 ) in 8-bit-mode.

My questions:
1. Start Xorg anyway even in text-mode without GUI?
2. Does GRUB use Xorg?
3. If yes, how can I set the right resolution for GUI, TTY and GRUB?
4. How can I increase the resolution during Installation? I cannot see anything!
5. How to start GUI in Devuan with KDE and OpenRC?
6. How to create the `Xorg-configuration-file` properly and how to point the system to look at that during start?
7. How to let read the system at EDID and configure Xorg properly?
8. Where to store the information/data of `xrandr`?

I read/study now this since almost one year, everydody write someting but all is fractionary, nothing complete, even not in the Arch-Linux wiki, e.g. there is written how to crate a `xorg.conf` but not where to fing the right data to write/insert in the right section.

Can you help me? Do you know a newbie-wiki?

Regarding the backports-repository, I could install `Header files for Linux 5.4.0-0.bpo.2-amd64` from `backports/main` but... there are also things like `libreoffice 1.7` and generally I made bad experience with backports at least under kubuntu.

Well that's because Kubuntu is a pile of crap big_smile

For Devuan the backports have a pin value of 100 by default and so will only be installed and upgraded from there if the --target option is used: https://backports.debian.org/Instructions/

Kubuntu include the firmware blobs in the kernel (bunch of degenerates) and a beowulf VM will not "see" your video card unless you pass through the PCI address.

Check the lspci output in the VM, it will almost certainly show a virtual video card.

Well the RX580 card is definitely supported, as confirmed by rolfie earlier in this thread.

If you're using VirtualBox (which you shouldn't because it's shit) then you need the "guest additions" for proper graphics support. Ask the interweb about it (or switch to QEMU/KVM, which is faster and generally better all-round).

For a bare metal installation you will need the firmware-amd-graphics package, as I have mentioned several times now.

No.

Terence wrote:

Press c at the GRUB screen, use the vbeinfo command to list the supported resolutions then press escape and edit the installer GRUB menuentry to add the desired resolution to the end of the line that starts with linux; for example:

video=800x600@75

Read man xorg.conf. The system will automatically read the file if it is placed in the correct location.

If Kubuntu displays the correct resolution then the EDID block is not the problem.

I have tested in the VM, the addition of `backports` don't automatically update/upgrade all installed packages, but only the special picked. Buntu-Distros update/upgrade everything.

Well, I followed your recommendation. Installed Beowulf on KVM (`virt-manager`) with `backports` and `firmaware-amd-graphics`.
Max. chooseable resolution is 1920*1200. Does it mean, due the fact that in KVM hasn't 'guest.iso', that if I install `Beowulf`on my NVMe I will have a max of ca. 1k instead of 4k?

Baremetal yes, 4k (3840*2160) not at all. EDID is OK, firmware is OK, xrandr is ok, resolution not, the thread will never close this way.

Reading this https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Xorg/Guide (start plasma5 with `openrc`) and due already tentative (in the past) to `startx` with the same commands:

startx

startkde

startx /usr/bin/startkde

startx -- vt7

it appear that (former) installation on real machine failed completely/was not able to start plasma5.

vbeinfo is deprecated, videoinfo is actual command, but by the ISO-start I can use a magnifier for that. Later on I can increase font-dpi for grub, etc. if I need.

I meant the installation-representation, under *buntus is called `ubiquity`. There is much more to read and write. Maybe I can switch shortly to terminal command and force `os-installer-resolution` to higher value and be able to read the installer-text.

I don't think I have to use # Xorg :0 -configure as here https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Xorg explained because `xorg` already exist, what I need is:

1. Right placement of GPU-drivers
2. Resolution 3840*2160
3. 144*144 dpi
4. 10-bit color deepness

That's absolutely not clear for me, so far not clear that I cannot even start an attempt in the virtual OS. No newbie explanation here?

You don't need a backported kernel or the AMD graphics firmware if you're running in a VM because the VM isn't exposed to the AMD card (as I already explained and as you already claimed to have understood).

I don't use virt-manager but I know that the default -vga std option for QEMU supports up to 2560x1600. The -vga qxl option will support up to 2560x1440 and higher resolutions are available if the VGA memory size for the QXL drivers is increased: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/QE … or_support

I presume your guest has the xserver-xorg-video-qxl package installed?

Baremetal yes, 4k (3840*2160) not at all. EDID is OK, firmware is OK, xrandr is ok, resolution not, the thread will never close this way.

No, it will never end unless you start providing some logs that are relevant to the problem (in this case the X.Org log) and clearly state which version of the kernel and firmware packages are installed.

@rolfie says that the RX580 works for them, I don't have that card or a 4k monitor so I can't really comment directly.

Oops, sorry.

I meant the installation-representation, under *buntus is called `ubiquity`. There is much more to read and write. Maybe I can switch shortly to terminal command and force `os-installer-resolution` to higher value and be able to read the installer-text.

Well just use the non-graphical installer then. I was under the impression that the beowulf ISO didn't provide a graphical installer anyway.

I recognize a dissonance between your writing and the pseudo-reality of VM's, in fact I installed now also MX-Linux (another Xfce with sysvinit) with MVs exact same adjustments. Here the xrandr-outputs...
Kubuntu real OS:

xrandr

this OS hasn't 'firmware-amd-graphics' but 'linux-firmware' Ver. 1.187.3
Devuan-Beowulf VM:

xrandr

   1024x768      60.00
   640x480        59.94

this OS has 'firmware-amd-graphics' Vers. '20190114-2' and 'firmware-linux-free' Vers. '3.4`and 'firmware-linux-nonfree' Vers. '20190114-2'. Here in Devuan is all completely different, even from MX-Linux (also Debian-like with 'sysvinit').
MX-Linux VM:

xrandr
Screen 0: minimum 1 x 1, current 3840 x 2160, maximum 8192 x 8192

   640x480       59.94  
   3840x2160_vbox  59.98* 

this OS has 'firmware-amd-graphics' Vers. '20200721-1~mx19+1' and 'firmware-linux-free' Vers. '20200721-1~mx19+1`and 'firmware-linux-nonfree' Vers. '20200721-1~mx19+1'
Note-s:
1. All, in the VM installed OS show natively (just after install) a reduced resolution (1024x768 Devuan, 2500x1600 MX-linux), the full or possible max. resolution is given only after installing 'firmware-amd-graphics'. This all without 'guest-addition.iso'
2. I delete the old VM's and reinstall them new.
3. Beowulf install by default 'firmware-linux-free' Vers. '3.4' the 'firmware-linux-nonfree' (I have installed afterwards for testing) don't bring anythings.

It doesn't or 'Beowulf' is not able. Reading instructions I increase the memory amount to 128K (the same quantity as in Virtual-Box), didn't help, here the outputs:

If you don't use 'virt-manager' what are you using? Do we make only a theoretical discussion or we tray to find a practical solution? Maybe detailed instructions `step-by-step` so we can help also other people besides of our-self.

He as well other claim to have done something functioning but... either don't know how they have doing that or just need to write someone with the hope respond.

I meant the installation-representation, under *buntus is called `ubiquity`. There is much more to read and write. Maybe I can switch shortly to terminal command and force `os-installer-resolution` to higher value and be able to read the installer-text.

Well just use the non-graphical installer then. I was under the impression that the beowulf ISO didn't provide a graphical installer anyway.

Of course, and that's problem (with 4k-monitor), while kubuntu-installer (graphic/live) can scaale the resolution ('systemsettings5') or Virtual-Box can scale up (for seeing better by installation) and down (to 100%) after the installation... on real install is only a kind  of colored terminal. This one ('colored terminal') I want scale up, anyway it not influence the installed system (for this remaine all mentioned 'problems').

Apparently not, no.

If so, that's bad, very bad.
Considerations:
1. Xfce is not my solution (as well gnome and Co.) due to 200% scaling (and scaling back with writing in numerouse config.files).
2. Gtk is even not a solution (getting error messages even in synaptic besides Xfce).
3. Nobody know how to setup a good 4k or want not tell or I put the wrong questions (maybe I start a new thread).
4. If I not get a working solution for Devuan I will aquantaine myself with Gentoo.

Here in Devuan is all completely different, even from MX-Linux

Looks like MX is booted in VirtualBox (they include the guest additions in the stock system), was Devuan also in VirtualBox and if so did it also have the guest additions installed?

All, in the VM installed OS show natively (just after install) a reduced resolution (1024x768 Devuan, 2500x1600 MX-linux), the full or possible max. resolution is given only after installing 'firmware-amd-graphics'.

What video card and kernel driver does lspci -k report for the VMs?

Sorry to big; I can't post them complete (not of real system, nor of Devuan) but...

Upload the file to a pastebin and share the link:

I'm not interested in the MX log, that is of no use for this thread.

I just can't be arsed posting a "newbie explanation" for how to create an X.Org configuration file, that's all. I'm sure there are some out there if you search a bit, or maybe another forum member with more patience than me will take pity on you.

'Synaptic' report a 'virtualbox-guest-addition.iso' is installed, I remove it. To be able to copy/paste between host and guest I installed it in the virtual-os. In this way I have full resolution as expected, but... you say 'it's crap'.

Does it mean that if I install the OS on real hardware will start and run normally?

Now with Guest-addition.iso can I post /var/log/

That's a good explanation, thanks! First I would state to use KVM like in the trhead for getting 'spice' and I have some questions:

Following your linked thread by 'shared-folder' is this command qemu_mount /shared 9p rw,sync,dirsync,access=client,trans=virtio,x-systemd.automount 0 0 but I have 'openrc' installed on the client.

How to modify the /etc/fstab accordignly?

Upload the file to a pastebin and share the link:

curl -F 'f:1=<-' ix.io < /var/log/Xorg.0.log

I'm not interested in the MX log, that is of no use for this thread.

Thanks for commit the command and OK for MX I was not sure.

I just can't be arsed posting a "newbie explanation" for how to create an X.Org configuration file, that's all. I'm sure there are some out there if you search a bit, or maybe another forum member with more patience than me will take pity on you.

I search since months now with very poor results on knowledge, each distro has own scheme, can you recommend some link-s? the qemu-link is very good (only one open question from my side).

If I not get a working solution for Devuan I will aquantaine myself with Gentoo.

What makes you think I care which distribution you use? hmm

I'm sure, by the way... Gentoo latest stable has 'systemd' too. Who will take care now about 'openrc'?

Thanks again for your patience.

Re: amdgpu-pro drivers

Hi

Just looking into gentoo-handbook. ATM they are still using open-rc as init manager. But they do have systemd stage 3 for those who prefer or need that (for gnome among other things).

Have a nice day

Does it mean that if I install the OS on real hardware will start and run normally?

No, the performance in a VM has absolutely no bearing at all on the support for your hardware. Look at your posted lspci output — do you see any of your hardware listed there?

The posted X.Org logs are of no use in respect of determining the problems with hardware support, we need to see the X.Org log from a bare metal installation.

Remove ,x-systemd.automount.
