Amdgpu pro install problems on ubuntu 18.04

So I am running kubuntu now on a system that I want to use as daily driver / photo editing station / capture system. Currently I have a problem with amdgpu-pro, during the install I get:

WARNING: amdgpu dkms failed for running kernel

I found this but I have all those packages installed already. So that doesn’t help.

I’m not even sure I need the pro driver but I wanted to give it a try before I really start using the system.
Kinda disappointed that I can’t now. Anyone got this to work?

Do you need opencl? Which I think is the only reason to use the pro drivers. If you don’t you should use the standard open drivers.

It might be helpful for image editing, yes. That is why I want to try it.

Freesync only works on pro.

Tombraider only works on open drivers.

AMD only notes support for 16.04.

I still can’t figure this out. Nobody else using AMDGPU-PRO?

Check this out:

That is my post.

My problem happens before that, I can’t get through ./amdgpu-pro-install -y --opencl=legacy without that error.

When I try to apt install amdgpu-dkms libdrm-amdgpu-amdgpu1 libdrm-amdgpu1 libdrm2-amdgpu I’m told everything is already there.

Just for reference, this is the official way to do things.

Okay, so I’m having exactly this same problem, did you ever manage to fix it?

Nope. Never tried anything again afterwards.
I should give that another go, probably with 19.04 then.
