Linux AMD Driver Install

CAUTION:  I HAVE NOT TRIED THIS SO PROCEED AT YOUR OWN RISK.  READ THE INSTRUCTIONS IN THE INSTRUCTION LINK BELOW.

This is “today’s” solution.  It will most likely change later.

go here to download drivers

Install/instruction link

you will have to

cd to where your driver download is, i.e., $HOME/Downloads

$ tar -Jxvf amdgpu-pro-YY.XX-NNNNNN.tar.xz
$ cd ~/Downloads/amdgpu-pro-YY.XX-NNNNNNInstruction Link

To install 5.4.0-54 do next:

sudo apt install linux-image-5.4.0-54-generic linux-headers-5.4.0-54-generic linux-modules-extra-5.4.0-54-generic
then reboot to 5.4.0-54

then

sudo apt remove linux-image-5.4.0-56-generic linux-image-unsigned-5.4.0-56-generic
(unsigned mentioned here because it tryed to install it for me by some reason.. it just helped)

then do

sudo apt autoremove
then go to /usr/src and remove linux-headers-5.4.0-56-generic and inux-headers-5.4.0-56 (if any of them are there)

now you can

cd into the directory created by “winding the tar file” – $HOME/Download/driver_directory (noted above)

sudo ./amdgpu-install -y

sudo reboot
