How to Install Radeon HD 5450 on Ubuntu 16.04



  • Hi all,
    today I received my new graphics card Radeon HD 5450 which I will use for burstcoin mining on my linux server. I have installed the "xserver-xorg-video-amdgpu-pro" driver but jminer doesn't recognize the amd card.

    ./run.sh

    Does someone know what I could do?

  • Your problem is in your configuration. Please post it. Somehow missing the plotPath item in the file.



  • yes I know but I should see the graphics card at the beginning. Only the CPU is identified



  • any idea what I can do?



  • that card is too early for amdgpu-pro support. see http://support.amd.com/en-us/kb-articles/Pages/AMD-Radeon-GPU-PRO-Linux-Beta-Driver–Release-Notes.aspx

    you want catalyst. see http://support.amd.com/en-us/kb-articles/Pages/AMDCatalyst15-9LINReleaseNotes.aspx

    under debian jessie it would be in the fglrx bundle in non-free repos.

    if ubuntu 16 includes it in repos and where is beyond my experience



  • @damncourier said in How to Install Radeon HD 5450 on Ubuntu 16.04:

    ebian jessie

    As far as I know the driver should be included in 16.04 with the "amdgpu" driver without the pro. How can I check if the card is installed?



  • clinfo command should give you a list of platforms and devices.

    there is a package on debian for the amd opencl platform, https://packages.debian.org/jessie/x11/amd-opencl-icd

    again idk what provides it in ubunutu 16
