Dear AMD Team,
I desperately need Vulkan support, so on my Core i7 system with Radeon R9 290X and CentOS 6.10, I downloaded amdgpu-pro-18.40-676022-rhel-6 driver and ran
The installer listed the packages it wants to install, but one line let my alarm bells ring:
"no package vulkan-amdgpu-pro-18.40-676022.el6 available"
And indeed, after solving many issues (see second report filed a few minutes ago), I got OpenGL and OpenCL, but no Vulkan.
Using the Vulkan SDK, I compiled the little 'vulkaninfo' program, which yielded:
Vulkan API Version: 1.0.5
Cannot create Vulkan instance.
vulkaninfo.c:697: failed with VK_ERROR_INCOMPATIBLE_DRIVER
Please don't tell me try with a newer system (CentOS 7. etc.), the software I develop has thousands of users that work with older Linux distros like CentOS 6, I need to support them too.
Many thanks in advance for your help,
Unfortunately, we don't support Vulkan on RHEL 6.
If you can't update the OS, you could try building our Vulkan driver from source. Note that it's not tested on RHEL 6, so it might not work:
Elsewise, there is a community supported driver in Mesa, but we cannot provide any support for that.
