• How to determine which open source graphics driver to install?

    I’m having trouble determining which open source driver to use: the ATI/Radeon or AMDGPU?

    sudo lshw -c video
    description: VGA compatible controller
    product: Carrizo
    vendor: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI]
    physical id: 1
    bus info: [email protected]:00:01.0
    version: c5
    width: 64 bits
    clock: 33MHz
    capabilities: pm pciexpress msi vga_controller bus_master cap_list rom
    configuration: driver=amdgpu latency=0
    resources: irq:47 memory:e0000000-efffffff memory:f0000000-f07fffff ioport:f000(size=256) memory:ff700000-ff73ffff memory:c0000-dffff

    Using the docs I think I should install xf86-video-ati but the output above lists amdgpu. So, I’m unsure if I should use xf86-video-amdgpu or xf86-video-ati.
    Any pointers would be appreciated.

    Well, I’m new to Arch based Linux is all I can say. I did a installed package search and xf86-video-ati is installed so I’ll mark this as solved.

    Next time if you have the same thing, just check the table on page “1.1 Driver installation”. Maybe there are some differencies in antergos packages, but i don’t know exactly. By the way, Arch wiki is always a good place to start. 😊

  • @_plas_ Thanks for the tip. Yes, in the excitement of installing Antergos I momentarily forgot my google foo skills. I used the Arch wiki to determine which drivers where already installed and what I need. I’m an everyday user so the ATI/AMDGPU open drivers do all I need.
