@mbma. Yeah installing the pro drivers system-wide isn't an option on Arch. It breaks the system.

The only thing I can tell you is that you must be missing something, because it worked fflawlessly for me.

Here's what I have in the $LD_LIBRARY_PATH folder:


dri is a directory, the rest are files from the pro packages.

And then here is what's in the dri folder, which is the LIBGL_DRIVERS_PATH location:

And that's it. Put all those files from the first list in folderA, then in folderB, then you can even test it real quick with LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/path/to/folderA LIBGL_DRIVERS_PATH=/path/to/folderb dri_driver=amdgpu /opt/resolve/bin/resolve. It should work, and then you can just turn that into a script or a little shell command or whatever you want.

@gardotd426 i've tried the suggest solution to run resolve to no avail. I also found a similar workarround on the wiki

Resolve starts but then halts complaining it can't find any gpu. Any suggestions on that?

I can run resolve if i install the amdgpu-pro packages system wide, but run into other problems when booting the system.

Version 20.40 is released:

@paulsun You can git checkout the old revision of this AUR package that builds 19.30, it should still work. Of course, even then, the libGL stuff barely works.

If I were to use 19.30 instead of 20.30 (for some reason its more stable for me, on 20.30 there are random flickers at times), do I just use extract_deb on these files?

package_amdgpu-pro-libgl () { pkgdesc="AMDGPU Pro OpenGL driver" license=('custom: AMDGPU-PRO EULA') provides=('libgl') depends=("amdgpu-pro-core-meta=${major}_${minor}-${pkgrel}" "gcc-libs" "glibc" "libx11" "libxcb" "libxdamage" "libxext" "libxfixes" "libxxf86vm") backup=(etc/gbm/gbm.conf)

extract_deb "${srcdir}"/amdgpu-pro-${major}-${minor}-ubuntu-18.04/libegl1-amdgpu-pro_${major}-${minor}_amd64.deb

# extra_commands:
mv "${pkgdir}"/opt/amdgpu-pro/lib/xorg/modules/extensions/ "${pkgdir}"/opt/amdgpu-pro/lib/xorg/modules/extensions/


So just those 9 files?

@gardotd426 - can you share the location of your .desktop file and the changes you made? I've tried a few variations on what I think it is supposed to look like but can't seem to get any changes to do anything. I'm new to editing .desktop files so I'm sure I'm missing something simple.

hdi commented on 2020-09-20 17:11

@Ashark I love you man, I installed the 19.30 and now everything working as it should, no more black screen, thank you

Ashark commented on 2020-09-20 16:39

@hdi Yes, you can see the changes history. The link is in the top right corner.

hdi commented on 2020-09-20 13:37

@gardotd426 thanks for the guide. I feel so stupid that I can't understand this. My system was working fine with previous amdgpu-pro-libgl 19.30 that I installed from the Manjaro package manager AUR, but I think the developer removed 19.30 and updated with the 20.30. My question is that, is there any way to downgrade or find the old amdgpu-pro-libgl 19.30 from AUR archive??? is there any archive somewhere?

gardotd426 commented on 2020-09-20 03:09

@hdi, that's the problem.

You can't use AMDGPU-PRO's libgl on Arch. Not installed system-wide, anyway.

I'm assuming you need it for DaVinci Resolve? Considering that's literally the only thing that you should need it for...

If that's the case, then you can just extract the lib files into another directory and use a script to export the proper variables and then launch DaVinci Resolve, meanwhile the rest of your system is using the regular amdgpu and mesa drivers.

Just add something like this to your ~/.bashrc or ~/.zshrc:

progl() {
  export LD_LIBRARY_PATH="/home/$USER/pro/drivers:${LD_LIBRARY_PATH}"
  export LIBGL_DRIVERS_PATH="/home/$USER/pro/drivers/dri"
  export dri_driver="amdgpu"

And then make sure ~/pro/drivers contains,,,,,,,, and from the necessary PRO .debs, as well as a directory called dri/ containing from the .deb package.

Then you launch Davinci resolve from the terminal by running progl first, hitting enter, then running DaVinci Resolve, or you could just add the exact same envvars to the beginning of the Exec= line in the .desktop file for DaVinci Resolve. Both work, I've already tried it.

I'm not sure about orca, you probably need to just install that system-wide.

But that's your only option if you insist on using Arch (or anything based on it). If you want to be able to just install the drivers system-wide, you have to use a supported distribution such as Ubuntu LTS or RHEL.
