Hi. I tried these instructions for installing amd drivers:
Someone told me my pc's OpenGL is only version 3.3. But my gpu is capable of OpenGL 4.4 afaik (Radeon HD 5770)
Step 1 - "Official Radeon Open Source drivers (recommended)"
My gpu was produced before 2012. So I have to try step 2
Step 2 - "Proprietary AMDGPU-PRO drivers"
After doing this part:
my screen's resolution is messed up (Zorin's Display settings say: 1024x768, 76Hz) I can't change these
but my monitor's settings says the proper 1080p 60Hz
Blender 3d software won't open anymore
my gpu's fan is full blast non-stop
the terminal command, radeontop, no longer works. It asks if I'm root. So I can't check if my gpu's under lots of load.
before pc finishes booting, it says:
[ 4.479646] hdaudio hdaudioC0D3: Unable to configure, disabling
(I dunno if this is irrelevant)
Step 3 - " If the AMDGPU-PRO graphics drivers are still not activated"
I tried this, I but noticed "Secure Boot" was already off.
I clicked "off" again, anyways,
but then my desktop wouldn't start up at all.
It just said: "Reboot and Select proper Boot Device or insert"..."
Turning Secure Boot on brought me back to Step 2.
How can I fix this?
Also, any ideas how I can get my gpu's latest OpenGL version on my pc?
Thanks for the reply.
I have an i7-3770 cpu, which has an iGpu.
I decided to use the Hd 5770 dedicated gpu tho since it's a bit faster afaik.
I couldn't open Blender 4 alpha (it's a 3d app).
I was told my gpu has been deprecated for Blender for a while, but that updating drivers might help.
Also, sometimes when I try someone else's 3d shaders, it doesn't look the same as their screenshots/tutorials.
They read this: System Information
Operating system: Linux-5.15.0-79-generic-x86_64-with-glibc2.31 64 Bits, X11 UI
Graphics card: AMD JUNIPER (DRM 2.50.0 / 5.15.0-79-generic, LLVM 12.0.0) X.Org 3.3 (Core Profile) Mesa 21.2.6
And they said I only have OpenGL 3.3
Ok, so I found drivers specific to my gpu from amd.
Should I download and install one of those?
Or do I have to do something else before proceeding?
I tried a bunch of stuff. But my pc can't confirm the Mesa version, can't install an amd driver,
and I still have all the issues (Blender stopped working, etc).
If possible, I'd like to avoid reinstalling Zorin OS.
What I tried:
(If u need more details, let me know. I took screenshots)
i tried software updater. It did a LOT of updates that looked like graphics stuff.
So I did what you said, did "uname -r" and it says:
But the issues still remain.
Blender won't open like it used to,
I still can't use that amd driver,
and I still can't find which version of mesa i installed.
I restarted (with 5.8.0-63), and ran software updater. Still doesn't work.
Any other ideas?
If not, I might just back up my data and reinstall my Os... I'll have to set up all my shortcuts and other stuff again...
