LLMs in Fedora

Anyone doing anything with LLMs in Fedora?

I am running stable-diffusion-webui and llm (python LLM manager) to do some playing around and testing.

If your GPU is suported, no need to do this; ollama will detect your GPU without issue.

You can find the supported cards here:

In my case, I have an AMD Radeon RX 6600, which isn’t supported by rocm:

$ rocm-smi --showproductname


============================ ROCm System Management Interface ============================
====================================== Product Info ======================================
GPU[0]		: Card series: 		Navi 23 [Radeon RX 6600/6600 XT/6600M]
GPU[0]		: Card model: 		0xe451
GPU[0]		: Card vendor: 		Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI]
GPU[0]		: Card SKU: 		2451LMH
==========================================================================================
================================== End of ROCm SMI Log ===================================

In order to have ollama use my GPU, I had to modify my /etc/systemd/system/ollama.service to add an environment variable in order to provide the closest GFX version to my card in order to be able to use it:

[Unit]
Description=Ollama Service
After=network-online.target

[Service]
ExecStart=/usr/local/bin/ollama serve
User=ollama
Group=ollama
Restart=always
RestartSec=3
Environment="PATH=/home/renich/.local/share/gem/ruby/bin:/usr/lib64/ccache:/home/renich/.local/bin:/home/renich/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/bin:/usr/sbin"
Environment="HSA_OVERRIDE_GFX_VERSION=10.3.0" # <-- added this

[Install]
WantedBy=default.target

The GVX_VERSION is relative to the closest LLVM target to my card’s.

Find your gfx version with: rocminfo, or rocminfo | grep -Eo 'gfx[0-9]{3,4}' and use the part after ‘gfx’ to create a version. If you have 3 digits, well x.y.z should be your version. In the case of 4 digits: wx.y.z should be it.

Now, when I start the ollama service, I see this in the logs:

# systemctl start ollama.service| journalctl -fu ollama

Anyway, good luck with this if you try it. Obviously, you need to install ollama first but that is straight-forward. Check out their website for a know-how: Download Ollama on macOS

Good luck.

I, currently, use stable-diffusion-webui using the pip installation method; venv and all.

This isn’t ideal, IMHO.

I am looking for a way to be able to install it and use Fedora’s packages and Fedora’s curated rocm.
