Seems I Missed A Step?

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.

Seems I Missed A Step?

Postby TheServerGeek » Mon Sep 07, 2020 2:37 am

Hi Team, :-)
I've been trying for 4 days to get a "valid" AMD card working on Debian 10 Linux. My machine can take 3 GPUs of which one is an NVidia and is running (I more or less "threw it in to test", but it works). It took half a day.

The other two slots I have two AMD HD7700s to fit. At the moment I only have one inserted until I get the drivers and/or Linux to play with F@H.
So far I have installed and uninstalled (tried) mesa drivers which I knew didn't work, AMD Pro (which at the time I didn't know didn't work), ROCm drivers (which seemed to work for others but gave me a kfd error on boot up).
I currently have the Debian OpenCL driver from their repo installed. I have no errors but FAH still complains I have incorrect drivers or the "compute device doesn't match". I know it does match by description, vendor and device according to the GPUs list. Pretty much back where I started last Wednesday.

SO... that leaves the issue with me having missed something or not checked something?

System log dump is below for anyone who might be able to ease my pain. :-)
Thanks in advance.

Re: Seems I Missed A Step?

Older Radeon GPUs and Linux are problematic. AMD dropped full support for Terascale and GCN 1st Gen cards in their proprietary drivers for Linux several years ago, the newest version of the drivers with the necessary OpenCL support date to 2017. Even there you may have to step back a version, there have been reports of incorrect computational results using the last version supporting OpenCL on these cards.

The open source drivers are not usable. The Mesa drivers and its OpenCL support never worked with F@h and AMD did not provide support for these older cards in the ROCm drivers.

The best chance to use these older Radeon HD 7700 cards will be on a Windows system.

P.S. About a year after AMD released most of the HD 7700 series cards, they released the HD 7790. That is based on a GCN 2nd gen GPU chip, and is probably the only HD 7000 series card relatively easily usable on Linux for folding as AMD supported GCN 2 a bit longer.

Hi, Thanks for the feedback.
I had read that the Mesa drivers did not work. Which was what the default appeared to be.
The fact that some had deprecated their Debian 10 version/drivers or installed a complete older version is probably the case of threads I have read from a few different places.
I only remember seeing one thread I read that mentioned that solution, but it was for an entirely different card with a different processor.

Thanks

The way I got an old AMD card (7770 HD) to fold on a linux machine was by setting up a virtual machine and using IOMMU to pass the 7770 HD card to the virtual macine, then use Windows or an older version of Linux to fold in the virtual machine. More details here: viewtopic.php?p=340362#p340362
