I'm only able to make xmr-stak-amd working with AMDGPU-PRO proprietary driver, so I must remain on Ubuntu 16.04.

Is there a way to make xmr-stak-amd working with the amdgpu opensource driver? I mean the default driver in Ubuntu 17.04 or 17.10.

Thanks in advance for answers.

At this time, no way to make xmr-stak (xmr-stak-amd is legacy) with the open-source AMD Linux driver.

Apart from that, the latest xmr-stak works like a charm with new Ubuntu 18.04 LTS version and the AMD Linux proprietary driver.
