I’ve had one week of really frustrating attempts to install a proper Linux driver for an RX570 card i just bought. The install scripts on AMD’s site (AMDGPU-PRO and AMDGPU) both throw an error regarding “amdgu-core”, and the PPAs I’ve tried (ppa:paulo-miguel-dias/mesa and ppa:oibaf/graphics-drivers) are of no avail. I won’t go into any more details, except that I use Linux Mint 19.1 (built on Ubuntu 18.04) and the hardware is clearly recognized::
lspci -nn | grep -E 'VGA|Display' 01:00.0 VGA compatible controller : Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Ellesmere [Radeon RX 470/480] [1002:67df] (rev ef)
Neither OpenCL nor dual monitor support work. (When I take a screenshot, both monitors show up correctly, and both are powered up. But physically, one remains black.) The primary monitor works as expected, though.
My question is simply this: Has anyone here been able to make the RX570 work correctly in Linux?
Btw: I’m a fairly advanced Linux user and I’ve searched all kinds of relevant forums and tried out a busload of suggestions posted there.
Please don’t make any “alternative” suggestions, such as switching to nVidia or such.
I’m only interested in hearing from someone who has made this work, as I’m pretty sure I’ve exhausted all suggested remedies.
