AMD Driver Ubuntu
Radeon no longer supports SPIR on some GPUs, please verify that your GPU drivers support SPIR to be compatible with Zivid Software.
Download and extract the correct Radeon Software for Linux:
Open a terminal window by pressing Ctrl + Alt + T keys on the keyboard.
Create a temporary folder and navigate to it:
mkdir amd cd amd
If you go to https://www.amd.com/en/support/kb/release-notes/rn-amdgpu-unified-linux-22-20 you will find a link to a version AMD GPU driver installer which is broken. In the following instructions we will use a version that we have tested and that works. At the time of writing this is version 22.20.3. AMD has a
/latestpath, but this still points to 22.20, which is broken.
wget --referer http://support.amd.com http://repo.radeon.com/amdgpu-install/22.20.3/ubuntu/jammy/amdgpu-install_22.20.50203-1_all.deb
Install this package with
sudo apt install ./amdgpu-install_22.20.50203-1_all.deb sudo apt update
Check your Linux Kernel version:
For Linux Kernel version 5.4 (Ubuntu LTS), download Radeon Software 20.45 for Ubuntu 20.04:
wget --referer http://support.amd.com https://drivers.amd.com/drivers/linux/amdgpu-pro-20.45-1188099-ubuntu-20.04.tar.xz
Extract the contents:
tar -Jxvf amdgpu-pro-20.45-1188099-ubuntu-20.04.tar.xz cd amdgpu-pro-20.45-1188099-ubuntu-20.04
For Linux Kernel version 5.8 (Ubuntu LTS HWE stacks), download Radeon Software 20.50 for Linux 20.04:
wget --referer http://support.amd.com https://drivers.amd.com/drivers/linux/amdgpu-pro-20.50-1234664-ubuntu-20.04.tar.xz
Extract the contents:
tar -Jxvf amdgpu-pro-20.50-1234664-ubuntu-20.04.tar.xz cd amdgpu-pro-20.50-1234664-ubuntu-20.04
Support for Ubuntu 18.04 is removed since SDK 2.10. To see Ubuntu 18.04 instructions for an earlier SDK version, change the Knowledge Base version in the top left corner.
Install the graphics stack.
amdgpu-install --usecase=graphics,opencl --no-32 --no-dkms
If you require Secure Boot you may have to include DKMS (remove
--no-dkmsin the above command). For more information see secure-boot-support.
Now add your user as member of both the
rendergroup and the
sudo gpasswd -a $USER render sudo gpasswd -a $USER video
You may have to reboot in order for the changes to take effect.
You may now try to open
ZividStudio. If it fails then follow the next steps.
Follow the steps to Configure Secure Boot (if prompted):
If you are not able to boot, check System Boot Error After AMD OpenCL Drivers Installation.
Check OpenCL driver
Open a terminal window by pressing Ctrl + Alt + T keys on the keyboard. Execute the following command to get a synthetic summary about all OpenCL platforms on the system and the devices they expose:
You first have to install clinfo.
If clinfo doesn’t print anything, you might have to add your user to group Video.
If your system does not boot up after installing the OpenCL driver, click System Boot Error After AMD OpenCL Drivers Installation.
