Support for Vega20/VII was added in kernel 4.20.

Why use this line? This is not an LTS series, and is abandoned upstream.

On another forum written that support added from 4.15 kernel

Thanks for a tips. I will try 4.20. Checked LTS today 4.19.45 and stable 5.0.18 what should i do?

But I'm afraid that without the official driver will not work all functions. There is no sources or binary installers, only deb or rpms on amd support page... :evil:

If support was added in 4.15, then I would interpret that to mean that the source code for an acceptable driver was merged into Linus' v4.15 release, so any subsequent release should have in-tree support and there should be no need for an external installer. For new hardware like this, I would suggest tracking the latest stable kernel (v5.1.x as of this writing), on the assumption that there may still be fixes/improvements being added.

Ok, i can try modern kernel. Thanks anyway))

Didn't work opencl, trying to install amdgpu-pro-opencl make fault

Code:
>>> Emerging (19 of 19) dev-libs/amdgpu-pro-opencl-18.20.684755::gentoo

!!! dev-libs/amdgpu-pro-opencl-18.20.684755 has fetch restriction turned on.
!!! This probably means that this ebuild's files must be downloaded
!!! manually.  See the comments in the ebuild for more information.

 * Fetch failed for 'dev-libs/amdgpu-pro-opencl-18.20.684755', Log file:
 *  '/var/tmp/portage/dev-libs/amdgpu-pro-opencl-18.20.684755/temp/build.log'
 * Please download the Radeon Software for Linux Driver 18.20 for Ubuntu 16 from
 *     https://support.amd.com/en-us/kb-articles/Pages/Radeon-Software-for-Linux-Release-Notes.aspx
 * The archive should then be placed into your distfiles directory.

Do what the error message says and download from https://support.amd.com/en-us/kb-articles/Pages/Radeon-Software-for-Linux-Release-Notes.aspx (it wants the https://www2.ati.com/drivers/linux/amdgpu-pro-18.20-684755-ubuntu-16.04.tar.xz file) and place it in /usr/portage/distfiles.

Are you sure you need the proprietary drivers? In most cases the open source amdgpu driver is nearly the same performance. OpenCL can be enabled with mesa[opencl].

Hmm maybe I was wrong. Mesa might not support the VII yet. Try amdgpu-pro-opencl by downloading the ubuntu 16 tarball and placing it in /usr/portage/distfiles.

I can't find that file, site drops me on the support page there i need to choose card and OS and than gives me only 19.10 revision of driver


PS

Sorry i clicked second link

Oh, that's weird. I can see it. This is the link: https://www2.ati.com/drivers/linux/amdgpu-pro-18.20-684755-ubuntu-16.04.tar.xz Unless that was the link you were talking about. You can try 19.10 by unmasking amdgpu-pro-opencl-19.10 if that doesn't work?

Out of curiosity, I clicked the link. I got a page that said:
Quote:
We’re sorry, but we were unable to complete your download. There could be several reasons for this:

You were linked to this download from a site outside of AMD.com
Since we do not allow downloads through sites outside of AMD.com, please download your file directly from our site. We want to make sure you have the right driver for your device and operating system. Choose your product and operating system on the AMD Driver Download page or use the AMD Driver Autodetect to obtain the correct driver for your device.

You copy and pasted the download link or clicked “Save As”
When you copy and paste a link or right click on it and select “Save As,” your browser will not send a referrer and our site will not allow the download. Please click the Back button in your browser and simply click the link instead.

Either a browser or firewall is set to disable sending referrers
Many browsers and personal firewalls allow you to hide the referrer sending. If you have changed this setting, please change it back to allow referrer checking.

You’re using a download manager
Change the settings in your download manager to send an HTTP referrer so that we can verify that you are using our site for the download.

My advice, stick with the in-kernel radeon driver. Do you really want to support a site trying to out-Oracle Oracle in user unfriendliness?

Yes, i want to use mesa opencl, but i didn't know why application doesn't see opencl devices, thats why i decide to use amdgpu-pro-opencl

Worked then i copy all libs and files from centos rpm packages cpio (ver 18.20) to /opt/amdgpu-pro/
thanks strace utility

the problem was that amdgpu-pro-opencl-18.20.684755.ebuild didn't install these files if mesa was build with opencl support

now mesa with opencl support and proprietary drivers those worked with application

eselect opencl set mesa - now makes nothing, application still need /opt/amdgpu-pro/lib64/libamdocl12cl64.so

Quite easy power management and overclocking with downvolting(shiftig) on 7nm chips via sysfs on amdgpu-pro drivers

Just start kernel via bootloader with these option amdgpu.ppfeaturemask=0xffff7fff i.e.

Code:
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-5.xx.xx-gentoo amdgpu.ppfeaturemask=0xffff7fff root=/dev/sda1


after that you can get simple sysfs file

/sys/class/drm/card0/device/pp_od_clk_voltage

that file can change mem clock settings and gpu clock and even voltage curve setting in compatible range

Just read kernel documentation in that source:

/usr/src/linux/drivers/gpu/drm/amd/amdgpu/amdgpu_pm.c

sources show that i can write changes and commit them like:

Code:

#!/bin/bash

echo 's 1 1900' > /sys/class/drm/card0/device/pp_od_clk_voltage
echo 'm 1 1100' > /sys/class/drm/card0/device/pp_od_clk_voltage
echo 'c' > /sys/class/drm/card0/device/pp_od_clk_voltage


or reset values
Code:

#!/bin/bash

echo 'r' > /sys/class/drm/card0/device/pp_od_clk_voltage
echo 'c' > /sys/class/drm/card0/device/pp_od_clk_voltage


It's very easy and makes tune scripts are quite powerfu i.e.
you can get power, gpu voltage and temperature:
Code:
#!/bin/bash

cat  /sys/class/drm/card0/device/hwmon/hwmon0/power1_average
cat  /sys/class/drm/card0/device/hwmon/hwmon0/in0_input
cat  /sys/class/drm/card0/device/hwmon/hwmon0/temp1_input
