amdgpu-pro-17.10-414273 and kernel linux-4.4.62-18.6 in Leap 42.2

Thanks to the new patch from krjdev

https://community.amd.com/servlet/JiveServlet/download/2795893-72963/patch_17.10.diff.zip

 

I could install the driver amdgpu-pro-17.10-414273 with the kernel linux-4.4.62-18.6 in Opensuse Leap 42.2.

But in the test with Unigine Valley, I observed many variations in the speed in the benchmark mode.

The media FPS of the benchmark with Unigine Valley is similar than the FPS obtained with the driver amdgpu-pro-16.60

 

I need to apply other patch to the driver, or the kernel?

Known Issues

    • System hangs when OpenCL™ attempts to allocate more than available system memory.
    • Deadlock when running Vulkan™ CTS dEQP-VK.synchronization.internally_synchronized_objects.pipeline_cache_compute test. See Linux® kernel mutex patch fix here https://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/9443007/
    • Xserver crashes when running Ansys V18 application on RHEL and can be avoided by running the following two commands as root before launching the app:
      "ln -sf /opt/amdgpu-pro/lib64/libGL.so.1.2 /usr/lib64/libGL.so.1"
      "ln -sf /opt/amdgpu-pro/lib64/libGL.so.1.2 /usr/lib64/libGL.so"
