Ubuntu: Installing AMDGPU-PRO on ubuntu 16.04.03 with a radeon rx vega 56


I just got a radeon rx vega 56 and I have been trying to get it to work with ubuntu. I use dual monitors and when booting up ubuntu for the first time I only can use one screen and it has bad resolution, and the other screen is blank. I started installing AMDGPU-PRO with the AMD guide here:


I have done everything that the guide says and then I restarted my computer. When the computer restarts I see the ubuntu splash screen on both monitors. After awhile it will say that the computer is running in low graphics mode. I have tried all options but I can not get it to load. Is there something else that I should be doing or an easier way to install this? Or should the default driver include resolution and dual monitor support and something else could be wrong?



If you haven't yet, try the HWE kernel. I have a Vega 64 and fixed an issue I had when I started using that.



Have u checked linux-headers version ? I tried to install that driver on my mining rig several times, it hadn't work util I found out that the driver only support linux-headers-4.10.xx , and the Ubuntu 16.04.03 upgraded the kernel to header-4.13.xx (after I accidentally typed: sudo apt-get dist-upgrade) . So try the following:

  1. Find out the linux header version of your Ubuntu:

    dpkg -l | grep linux

    if your lastest linux-headers/image > 4.10.xx (e.g: 4.13.xxx)) then

  2. Uninstall it:

    sudo apt-get purge linux-headers-xxx (your newer version)

    sudo apt-get purge linux-image-xxx

  3. Reboot: sudo reboot

  4. Uninstall the amdgpu-pro driver
  5. Reboot
  6. Reinstall then amdgpu driver

Hope it helps
