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).

We don't need to spam AUR with releases. It's just a fix for Ubuntu, it's already working in Arch Linux. imo we should wait for the next major release from AMD.

@kode54 flag it out of date when that happens, I'm more likely to check my email and actually respond when it's an out of date notification than a comment. Will do tomorrow as I'm in bed rn

@kode54 is there a guide somewhere on how I can use the new build before this package is updated? Or is it a bit of a case of try and see?

New build, 20.45.1188099, sha256sum a4040db7822cde36c0783912428e1b4897ecdacb9b3d21d716357dae6e4fc6b7.

@sperg512 Thats is true, with Nvidia you can't use recent kernels, not realtime kernel either, you must use only distro kernel and nvidia packages from distros.

I used to had a nvidia gxt 550ti for almost 9 years (with ubuntu, debian, manjaro). and I never had a problem IF and only IF used distro packages.

I have now a AMD RX 5500 XT and I can install any kernel, a nice boot image, 3d, vulkan, etc. Out the box. But if we need some propietary stuff.... well here we are :)

I don't recommend switching cards just yet. My experience with the 5700xt is it took a year for the drivers to be stable enough for desktop use. Now it seems that they are also working on openCL and deep learning, but I don't think there will be something stable and complete before another year. In any case I don't recommend the RDNA series because it will be neglected in favor of RDNA2 and Vega. Better to try to get Polaris running and wait for the change.

Opencl-amd and Blender stable work for me without problems!

@kode54 Keep in mind you need to be using the git version of Blender if you're testing OpenCL rendering. The stable version has yet to be patched.

aaaaand here starts the inevitable argument about Nvidia vs. AMD

All of my friends who use Nvidia have had a load of problems on recent kernels, from X not starting to it straight up not working (remember the kernel 5.9 stuff? lol), if they're apparently not that bad then I guess my friends are just dumb

Enverex commented on 2021-02-02 12:39

don'tgo the Nvidia route though, because Nvidia doesn't know how to make a functioning Linux driver (even less than AMD lol)

Absolute nonsense, what's more ironic is that you're claiming that on a the thread about actual, literal AMD driver issues.

sperg512 commented on 2021-02-02 12:37

@kode54 you can grab a 5500XT for around $200-250, or if you're willing to pay more you can get a 6800 for about $570, those are my recommendations
