I got myself a new GPU and thought it would work under linux. So far I spent all day getting it to work and failed. Whenever I try to install the amdgpu driver I get the message
WARNING: amdgpu dkms failed for running kernel. Apparently it’s not possible to install the amdgpu drivers on kernels that are newer than 4.15. Another option would be to use a kernel with a version 5.5. I looked up my error message, but none of the reports used the version I used (19.50-967956) of the AMD drivers. I hoped the reported issues were fixed.
I am very unsure how I should proceed. So far, I have been using kde neon, which comes with a 5.0.0 kernel as far as I can see. Would it make more sense to switch distro, update to an unstable kernel or maybe even downgrade the kernel version?
Any help, advice or pointer would be great.
