I need HIP in order to use GPU render in Blender. I’ve been fighting with AMD’s laughably bad RHEL and CentOS 8 repos. I can’t even get a single package installed. I get this error:
AMDGPU 22.10 Proprietary repository 5.6 kB/s | 2.9 kB 00:00 Error: Problem: package rocm-hip-runtime-126.96.36.199103-66.el8.x86_64 requires hip-runtime-amd, but none of the providers can be installed - package hip-runtime-amd-5.1.20532.50103-66.el8.x86_64 requires rocm-llvm, but none of the providers can be installed - conflicting requests - nothing provides /usr/libexec/platform-python needed by rocm-llvm-188.8.131.5214.50103-66.el8.x86_64 (try to add '--skip-broken' to skip uninstallable packages)
All the packages it complains about exist in the repos I have configured. I can DNF search it and there are newer versions available and so on. I’ve tried 22.10.2, 22.10.3, “latest”. Actually, “latest” doesn’t even have the latest packages, those are in 22.10.3. Also, the ROCM repo has an “rpm” folder, but it has outdated packages compared to the repos that have names… versions? Like, Index of /rocm/centos8/5.1.3/. It seems like either packages are too old, or too new, or some random file isn’t supplied by the repos. AMD’s pro drivers for Linux are a joke and they make me regret buying an AMD card every time I need to do professional 3D rendering.
I have an AMD Radeon RX 5700XT. Please help!!
