Radeon VII – Getting It To Work Ubuntu

If you’re using Arch you’re in good shape with the Radeon VII but with Ubuntu the kernel and Mesa versions are too far behind. Here is how I got my card to work in Ubuntu. Please do proper backups before attempting this. I only tested on my own machine.

Update to kernel 4.20 in Ubuntu

  • sudo add-apt-repository ppa:paulo-miguel-dias/pkppa
  • sudo apt update
  • sudo apt upgrade
  • reboot
  • sudo apt-get install ukuu
  • Open it via GUI or command line (I did it via GUI)
  • Select kernel 4.20
  • Reboot when done
  • uname -a to validate
