OpenSUSE 42.2 - Radeon RX480 Drivers


I've just installed OpenSUSE Leap and I'm not sure which drivers do I choose if I want to install drivers for my AMD RX 480. I checked on the OpenSUSE site and it said that the proprietary drivers will not work for 42.2. The compatibility only goes up to the 300 series, I don't see the RX series anywhere. I checked for open source drivers on my PC, but there aren't any. I'm not sure how to install it.

If your not having any graphics issue's it's best not to install any AMD proprietary drivers.
The kernel is most likely already providing a driver for your RX480 anyway.

I had nothing but trouble when I installed AMD proprietary drivers on my Linux boxes in the past.

Drivers are in the output of lsmod. <if you want to look>

If your not sure you should wait to hear what other members say about this that are running Open Suse. Again if your not having any graphic issue's best to leave things be.

Well you see, I can't change my desktop resolution. It's stuck at 720p so thought it was a graphics drivers problem.

Not sure if it's a GPU driver issue or not. It could be a monitor issue. This might help.
