In the last days AMD released an early preview of 20.10 drivers, available here:

I've updated the PKGBUILD of this package. Installation is working fine for me. Available here:

But be careful when trying: Maybe I've missed something or have overlooked something.

Naetherm's PKGBUILD needed a bit of modification. Also, in my personal setup, I've removed the PKG_EXT override, since zstd compression has very little overhead on the process compared to the old default of xz.

I still can't make my desktop manager work or desktop log in with the libGL packages installed, so I've just decided to not bother with those for now.

In Ashark's PKGBUILD I noticed that the /19.50/ directory is missing in the source path. Could this be what is compromising the installation? Naetherm's PKGBUILD has it. Another difference is: backup=(etc/amd/amdapfxx.blb) Which in Naetherm is: backup=(etc/gbm/gbm.conf) Why the difference?

for what it's worth, @naetherm 's patched PKGBUILD worked fine for my purpose which was to use the AMFh.264 encoder in ffmpeg. 19.30 did not work on my 5600XT (encoded video was black).

19.50 won't work for me. Tried a few things but troubleshooting is witch-craft at best to me.

I had to modify the PKGBUILD you posted to get pacman to allow the install:


package_lib32-amdgpu-pro-libGL () {
# extra_commands:

I added:

rm "${pkgdir}"/opt/amdgpu/share/drirc.d/10-amdgpu-pro.conf

Otherwise it came into conflict with the non-lib32 version because they both try to install that file.

Also have to delete some library symlink under /opt that's left behind after uninstalling the 19.30 packages. I forget which lib, pacman names it when I try installing with 'pacman -U *.pkg.tar'

After installation I did 'systemctl disable sddm' before rebooting so I'd get a terminal, which I'm sure isn't nmecessary but my luck with things like this tends to lean to catastrophe so I wanted to boot to a terminal for safety.

'systemctl start sddm' resulted in a crash. The only Xorg log I know to check(like I said, it's witchcraft to me), is /var/log/Xorg.0.log which the relevant bit seems to be(I'm running two GPUs BTW, the onboard intel and a Radeon RX 5700XT for a dual monitor setup):

Sorry if that's not very helpful. I used to be better at tracking down issues like this but ADD doesn't let me stay on one hobby for very long and I forgot most of what I knew back then. :(

Let me know if there's any more info I could provide.

It's not working for me either, it doesn't start XOrg and I have to switch to the shell. Many errors "display not recognized" (and sddm), but without being able to determine the exact cause.

Ashark commented on 2020-02-04 09:40

@apaz, install files are in the same repository. At the moment, they are not different from the same files in AUR. But anyway, 19.50 version is not working for me.

apaz commented on 2020-02-04 09:19

Trying to install amdgpu-pro 19.50, it locks immediately with the following error:

$ makepkg -si ERROR: install file (amdgpu-core-meta.install) does not exist or is not a regular file.

My system: chipset: x570 cpu: amd 3700x gpu: amd rx 5700 xt Tried with both mesa and mesa-git Uninstalled opencl and vulkan before trying to install amdgpu-pro.

Ashark commented on 2020-01-18 18:55

nyanmisaka, yes, of course uninstallation will solve the X problem =) I mean I do not know how to make amdgpu-pro 19.50 to work properly.

nyanmisaka commented on 2020-01-18 11:25

Uninstall *amdgpu-pro-libgl from this 19.50 package may resolve the X problem.
