The R7-250X is supported in the 19.20 driver, You may not have searched far enough.
Just as the title says!
I tired above command without --headless argument with same results as when issuing ./amdgpu-pro-install -y.Dirk Broer wrote: ↑Mon Aug 12, 2019 4:34 pmThe -y argument sets all questions during the install to a default 'yes'.
The install of OpenCL depends heavily on the --opencl=pal,legacy argument. Without it you will get the infamous 'no useable GPU detected'...--headless will drop Accelerated graphics, Mesa multimedia, Pro OpenGL and Pro Vulkan
Code: Select all
./amdgpu-pro-install -y --opencl=pal,legacy --headless
Out of curiosity I opened synpatic to check what packages are installed and added boinc-client-opencl (7.9.3+dfsg-5ubuntu2) and
ocl-icd-libopencl1 (2.2.11-1ubuntu1) packages. After this I restarted boinc-client service. Still my GPU was not detected.
Once more I opened synaptic and installed these packages:
Finally I rebooted PC and viola. GPU shows up nicely in Boinc.
I assume that OpenGL was causing the trouble.

Something tells me you ran the ./amdgpu-pro-install not in the directory where the amdgpu-pro-install script is (/Downloads/driver/version), as it will install all the files you installed with synaptic, and more.
Believe me, Dirk, I did run install command in directory containing all unpacked files.
Right now I have another problem as none of the project supporting Radeon GPU work. But this is subject for another thread.
I gave up on installing drivers for this card on Linux. I wasn't getting anywhere. It works fine on Windows and I will be looking for to purchase Nvidia next year.
