Ubuntu 18.04 / 16.04 with AMD Rx 570s

It seems that a lot of GPU problems revolve around specific versions of drivers. Though AMD has their own support structure, you can often learn from information reported by others who fold.

I can confirm that this problem exists, and I believe it is an issue with the Folding@Home client. I am running into the same thing with my Ubuntu 18.04 installation.

My system specs are:
OS: Ubuntu 18.04.3 LTS
Board: ASRock Socket FM2+
CPU: AMD Pro A10-8750B
Memory: 8 GB DDR3
Graphics: MSR Radeon RX 580 8 GB
HDD: Western Digital 250 GB
Power Supply: Seasonic Focus 550 Watt

I am using the latest Ubuntu Folding Client (V7.5.1). I got Proprietary Drivers from AMD for the RX 580. These are drivers specifically for Ubuntu 18.04. They are here: https://www.amd.com/en/support/graphics/radeon-500-series/radeon-rx-500-series/radeon-rx-580

I followed the install guide here: https://amdgpu-install.readthedocs.io/en/latest/
I used the instruction
Code: Select all
$ ./amdgpu-pro-install -y --opencl=pal,legacy
to install all the open CL packages. From reading the release notes, this should have worked. I verified the existence of Open CL on the system using the CLINFO command:

As you can see, Open CL is installed and recognized by the system. However, the folding client does not detect it (although it does detect the RX 580):

In summary, I have a successful install of the proprietary AMD Radeon drivers for Ubuntu 18.04, which include Open CL. I verified that those Open CL drivers are present. Yet, the folding client does not recognize any Open CL Devices. What next? Is folding on AMD Hardware in Ubuntu impossible?

I found a workaround based on this post:

viewtopic.php?f=74&t=31096

Basically you need to tweak the startup script for the client (/etc/init.d/FAHClient), changing the username from "fahclient" to "root". With root access, the client can see Open CL devices and fold correctly. This seems like a problem unique to AMD GPUs on Linux, since Nvidia GPUs work fine (once open CL is installed). It would be great to fix this, because giving the client root access seems like a bad idea...

What device code is shown by lspci?


It is not the x731f Ellesmere XT device and newer navi devices are not yet supported.

The RX 580, along with the RX 570 and older RX 4xx cards are all Polaris architecture (Ellesmere chip). This is one generation prior to Vega and two generations prior to Navi. The card was working fine in Windows previously...just switched it over to Linux.

lspci output:

Code: Select all
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Ellesmere [Radeon RX 470/480/570/570X/580/580X] (rev e7)


I am happy to report that switching the fahclient's username to "Root" continues to work...it's cranking along nicely. Looks like fahclient can't see AMD OpenCL devices under the default install for some reason.

Note I think this fix will solve all of these people's issues, for when trying: "sudo apt install ocl-icd-opencl-dev" doesn't work. The issue isn't that OpenCL isn't installed, it's that the clien't can't see it (permissions issue solved by either setting the client's username to "root" or setting it to your own admin user name / giving the folder admin permissions)

First: I wonder? Is it a permissions problem or a path problem?
Does the path change when you su to root?

Second, lspci should have given you the device codes... something like this:
0x1002 0x67df Ellesmere XT [Radeon RX 470/480/570/580]
I asked specifically for the codes on the left.


Third: post the **system** segment near the top of FAH's log.

It looks something like this:

(obviously yours will be different)

Is that segment different for root and your normal user?

Fourth: If you have installed the OpenCL from Intel, most people find it useful to remove it. In any case, for FAH to work, an Intel GPU should NOT be associated with a functional FAH GPU slot. (The last link you referenced specifically asked how to enable OpenCL on BOTH the CPU and the GPU, but it has been edited to the point of not being useful for FAH.)

Bruce, thanks for the help, I appreciate you digging into this! I didn't see any change to the path when the client logs in as root. The only difference I saw in the log file is that of the user name (root vs fahclient). Specifically, where it says "switching to user root". Also it is finding the openCL devices when logged in as root.

Here is the full output from LSPCI. I didn't see any of those device ID codes...

Here is what I saw in the log file this morning. It is successfully folding, doing about 370K PPD, which is similar to what I saw in Windows for the RX580.

Have you tried "locate opencl" and then change the permissions so that anybody can Read and eXecute them?

I haven't tried adjusting permissions yet. Based on some of the other threads I linked earlier, plus this:

https://askubuntu.com/questions/632045/ ... ks-as-root

I am going to try adding the fahclient user name to the video user group (apparently this is a requirement for opencl). If that doesn't work I'll start opening up permissions on the opencl directories. Currently I'm just waiting to make sure this system is stable (I want to get 10 work units out of it now that I finally have it working).

Here is the output from the locate command:

Which folder do you think is the one that the client uses?

None of those. (dot)DEB files are (compressed) files which can be installed (but may not have been installed yet). Either OpenCL is not installed or you didn't find the library and the run-time moddules.

Maybe they're in the same place as clinfo. Have you tried locate clinfo and seeing what else is in that directory?

Does AMD show any performance improvements on Linux VS Windows?

Ill try to look into the permissions a bit more this week...have been busy. The machine is cranking along with anywhere between 280 and 420k PPD depending on work unit. On windows it averaged around 350-375K PPD...so I am seeing more variation in Linux but it's not unreasonable. One thing I haven't been able to figure out is how to enable compute mode in the AMD Linux driver. There is a toggle in the Windows AMD Crimson ReLive GUI to switch the GPU workload from graphics to compute...this yields about a 10 percent improvement on some work units according to my testing. Can't find a similar toggle in Ubuntu...there also is no GUI for the driver there.
