The AMDGPU stack is delivered as an installer package. Prior to installation, you must first obtain the installer package from your AMD Customer Engagement Representative, from the AMD web site, or from repo.radeon.com.
Download the installer package to the system (for example, to
and install it using the package manager, which will make the installation
script available on your system.
In the following commands, replace
the actual file name of the downloaded installer package:
$ cd ~/Downloads # For Ubuntu: $ sudo apt-get install ./amdgpu-install-VERSION.deb $ sudo apt-get update # For RHEL: $ sudo yum install ./amdgpu-install-VERSION.rpm # For SLE: $ sudo zypper install ./amdgpu-install-VERSION.rpm
Installing “amdgpu-install” will add the installer and AMD related repositories to your system. The repositories will be accessible to the system package manager, which is in turn used by the installer.
AMDGPU stack depends on packages provided by the Linux distribution vendors.
The AMDGPU stack 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.
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.
