sudo mkdir --parents --mode=0755 /etc/apt/keyrings
# Download the key, convert the signing-key to a full
# keyring required by apt and store in the keyring directory
wget https://repo.radeon.com/rocm/rocm.gpg.key -O - | \
    gpg --dearmor | sudo tee /etc/apt/keyrings/rocm.gpg > /dev/null

Install Drivers#

Install the amdgpu-dkms kernel module, aka driver, on your system.

sudo apt install amdgpu-dkms
sudo yum install amdgpu-dkms
sudo zypper install amdgpu-dkms

Install ROCm Runtimes#

Install the rocm-hip-libraries meta-package. This contains dependencies for most common ROCm applications.

sudo apt install rocm-hip-libraries
sudo yum install rocm-hip-libraries
sudo zypper install rocm-hip-libraries

Reboot the system#

Loading the new driver requires a reboot of the system.

sudo reboot
