@luciddream weird, could it be your git config? Long while ago I had issues with that, but I'll push that tomorrow morning

Anways, anyone with a Polaris card that doesnt work on this version, send outputs of the following commands preferrably in files:

  • clinfo

  • clinfo --offline

  • dmesg, include relevant lines only if possible

Please also, if possible, include a crash log of any application using OCL that crashes on this version (i.e Junk Shop blender scene, Geekbench, or even just a basic OCL program). Any extra information would be appreciated. You can include versions of things like the kernel if you want

I need this so I can give the driver devs as much info as possible to fix this bug. In the future, when any major bugs like this occur, I will likely refer back to this comment.

also if there's any more information that should be necessary for everyone to send please tell me! Thanks

ok so as @ATrigger and @quimkaos pointed out, 20.50 doesn't work on Polaris GPUs. If you have one, downgrade to 20.45 or install opencl-amd-polaris. could also be Mesa being fat but for now just downgrade or install the other package ok thanks

opencl-amd follows the AMDGPU-Pro upstream releases. If the latest version is not working for your system, you can download and install the 20.40 version. The link to the 20.40 PKGBUILD is here

From AMDGPU-Pro 20.45 release notes - Blender 2.90.1 users may experience page faults (details in dmesg log).

I have a question regarding compatibility, will this work with an AMD GPU that is unsupported by ROCm?

And is compatibility limited to GPUs that are officially compatible with AMDGPU-PRO, or any GCN GPU should work?

Newest opencl-amd 21.10.... does not work with darktable. darktable is not able to compile filmic_chroma_v2.

seems odd to me that certain bugs only affect certain distributions since they're all just Linux with a different package manager basically. Might be something different with Fedora, I don't know. Either way, this doesn't seem to be affecting Arch, i think luciddream has a 5700XT (unless the schizophrenia is hitting again) and wasn't "affected", and it seems to be working fine (read: broken but doesn't obliterate the system) for most people. Thanks for the warning and taking the time to let us know.

shuriken commented on 2021-05-28 02:13

On Fedora systems this is happening on some GPUs not all. 5700xt is for sure and radeon carrizo as reported by few users. So I just wanted to reach out in case this bug also affected Arch Linux. Thanks for the response :)

I can confirm mesa 21.1.1-1 works fine with latest opencl-amd package. I guess it's not something that affects Arch Linux but thanks for the warning anyway.

@shuriken: I don't have any issues with this, but I'm running an older version of this package (20.40.1147286-1) because the ones after don't fully work with my system.

I have a RX 5600 XT.

URGENT ISSUE because of mesa 21.1.1 release.

Hi maintainers for opencl-amd, I maintain an unofficial Fedora guide for openCL, identical to this repo. We currently have an issue.

This is my guide

I have posted a fix here to downgrade mesa from tty for arch ofcourse packages may differ

For arch linux mesa update just got pushed as I was typing this comment to 21.1.1 which may result in this issue on Arch linux and will make many systems unbootable and will require a downgrade from tty. please open a bug on I don't have permission to do that, I tried reaching quicker :(

@luciddream - thanks, you're most probably right, sorry for pointing at the wrong culprit. I can confirm that said fix doesn't work on linux though :) I'll just run 20.50 until it does.

luciddream commented on 2021-04-24 13:57


It doesn't look to be a bug with the drivers, there has been a new release to address it (0.8.2) - someone says it doesn't work on Linux though.

droidbot1711 commented on 2021-04-24 09:41

I'm guessing this is a bug with the upstream AMD drivers, but just wanted to give a heads up that the latest release breaks mining on my build. Somehow teamredminer only detects 20 CUs instead of 40 and fails to initialize the card (even when manually setting the correct CU number). Cloning this repo and building the HEAD~2 commit fixes the issue. Card is Sapphire Nitro+ 5700XT.
