After many hours of struggle to install my
Sapphire RX 580 gpus on Ubuntu 16.04, I was frustrated when I realised that:
Installation of AMDGPU-PRO drivers on Ubuntu 16.04.3 will likely result in issues, such as black screen hang or defaulting to a lower graphics mode without acceleration. This also applies to Ubuntu 16.04.2 users who have been upgraded to 16.04.3.
I even tried to install Ubuntu 14.04 to avoid the issue, but it had the same issue.
So I had to switch to Windows 10 in order to make my rig of RX 580 gpus up and running.
However I really like to come back to Linux, as it is my preferred OS and, according to many, it offers better mining performance.
So I appreciate if you can tell me what flavors of Linux do not have issues with amdgpu-pro and can be used as the rig's OS.
