The AMDGPU graphics stack is delivered as an archive of native packages. Prior to installation, you must first obtain the archive from your AMD Customer Engagement Representative or from the AMD web site.
Download the AMDGPU-Pro tar archive (for example, to
which contains the installation script.
Extract the tar archive to a known location. Replace

AMDGPU stack depends on packages provided by the Linux distribution vendors.
The AMDGPU-Pro driver requires access to specific RPMs from Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) or SUSE Linux Enterprise (SLE) installation media for the purpose of dependency resolution. You must ensure one of the following:
- Have a valid subscription and be connected to Internet during installation.
- Mount an installation media (for example, DVD, USB key or ISO file). Media mounting instructions for Red Hat systems are provided at https://access.redhat.com/solutions/1355683. For SLE, use YaST to add the installation media as a new repository, see the SUSE documentation for details.
In previous releases (before 18.30), a script named
amdgpu-pro-preinstall.sh was provided to carry out this step and
to perform other pre-installation checks and configuration. Starting
with 18.30, all external dependencies (excluding dependencies on
packages provided by the Linux distribution vendor) have been
eliminated and the checks have been integrated into
been eliminated to streamline installation. However, access to
distribution media or online package repositories is still required
to satisfy base operating system dependencies. It is assumed most
customers have a subscription with access to online repositories or
are using a Linux distribution which does not require a subscription
and has online repositories enabled by default.
