AMD Catalyst 15.12 for openSUSE – new makerpm-amd-script is available

March 17th, 2016 by

AMD has released the new AMD Catalyst 15.12 (Radeon Crimson Edition). My script replaces the existing packaging script with an updated packaging script. It supports up to Kernel 4.5. (Official support up to Kernel 3.19)

Important note: The driver does not work on openSUSE Tumbleweed. Unfortunately, the version of X-server is too new for the driver.

SHA1 is obsolete by now. The script used SHA256 for integrity of the downloaded files.

New Feature from packaging script:

  • systemd support

Resolved Issues:

  • [SWDEV-82980] Ubuntu 15.10 fails when building the .deb packages

Bruno Friedmann will build the new RPM packages in the fglrx repository. Stay tune!

If you find any issue with the driver. Don’t hesitate to contact me. I am in contact with AMD and can forward your issue to the right place. Feedback are welcome.

A report of your system is very helpful beside your feedback. You can generate it with the script:
su -c 'sh makerpm-amd-15.12.sh -ur'

Have a lot of fun!

    The rpm for 13.2 and Leap have been published.
    Unfortunately they don’t compile for 13.1

    For Tumbleweed, I’ve cleaned up completely the repository. FGLRX is not compatible with xorg 1.18 .

    Does it works with gnome and gdm?
    Last driver i tried broke gdm 🙁

    There is some sort of problem with the libglx libraries if you use the newest kernel from the kernel repository . There must be something I m missing all the new kernels rather than the default 4.1 from Leap 42.1 will boot into a black screen. And another thing is that I think that updating the kernel breaks vpau accelaration. Flash player is broken. If I use to xorg drivers every kernel boots. Anyone with the same problem?? Using Leap
