This is kind of subjective but actually there is no problem at all running elementary OS 0.4 loki on 2 core AMD 64 bit if you have enough RAM (4-8 GB)

No. AMD dropped the flgrx support for the version of the Xorg server that Ubuntu 16.04 ships with. https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/ubuntu-devel-discuss/2016-March/016315.html

Thanks a lot ! I did many research (and re-install ^^") before seeing your answer... and i found a solution which, i think, is interesting When you're installing Elementary OS, he ask if you want to "Install third-party software for graphics and Wi-Fi hardware, Flash, MP3 and other media". That's the "problem". Without this checked, i had no problems for ...

According to this the AMD PRO WX 2100 doesn't work really well under linux at the moment. Updating your kernel to a more recent version may make it work. Here you can download the necessary packages. If you want to install elementary on UEFI mode you need to set your bios/firmware to UEFI mode and then boot the usb. The key to open the boot menu varies ...

It is necessary to know more information about your system, but I will tell you what worked in my case: download the driver from the official website of amd. After that unzip and edit the files amdgpu-install and amdgpu-pro-install. In line 90 change ubuntu by elementary and save the change. If you do not do that, it will say OS not supported. Depending ...

No, there is no need to remove mesa before installing AMD's driver. And the answer by Suditu George is almost completely incorrect. AMD does provide drivers for 16.04 in the form of AMDGPU-PRO.

Which driver did you try? There's quite a few details missing here so you'll have to be a bit more descriptive. From a quick scan of AMD's closed source driver page, they ended support for 5000 series cards with 15.04. If it's the open source driver you're looking for, it should have been installed by default with Loki. Can you post the output of lspci -k | ...

As a workaround, you might want to try to install 4.11 from the Ubuntu mainline kernels. You can download and install from http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v4.11.4/ the following packages: sudo dpkg --install linux-headers-4.11.4-041104_4.11.4-041104.201706071003_all.deb \ linux-headers-4.11.4-041104-generic_4.11.4-041104.201706071003_amd64....

It is not at all likely that 0.4 loki gets kernel 4.10 as the default kernel. However, you can install it via sudo apt install linux-image-generic-hwe-16.04-edge

Try to use the Autoinstall command in Terminal. This should work in every ubuntu and debian distro variants sudo ubuntu-drivers autoinstall Also try to update your Kernel and make sure that your OS is the latest. sudo apt upgrade && sudo apt dist-upgrade

I solved my problem by updating the kernel to the latest version (4.6.5) following these instructions: To Install and upgrade Linux Kernel 4.6.5 (Stable) on Ubuntu 16.04 Xenial Xerus, Ubuntu 15.10 wily werewolf, Ubuntu 15.04 vivid Vervet, ubuntu 14.10 Utopic Unicorn, Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr (LTS), Linux Mint 17.1, Linux Mint 17.2, Linux Mint 17.3 ...

I also have an AMD RX 460 based card that I got a few weeks ago which I understand is not quite yet supported by Ubuntu 16.04 (and thus Loki) with the current 4.4 kernel but if you wait for just a few hours (maybe a day or two) the Ubuntu 16.04.2 update release should be out with new 4.8 kernel and Xorg stack which should get you up and running even with the ...

This may help: https://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/301897/amd-gpu-pro-on-loki-ubuntu-16-04-kernel-4-4/308584 I do believe that your card is supported by the new AMD driver, however it's not preinstalled on Loki, you will need to follow the instructions posted by others on the link to get it working.

The Virtual Box forum provided an answer so I thought I would share it in case anyone else encounters this problem. The solution was to Enable 3D Acceleration on the VM.

https://askubuntu.com/questions/68306/how-do-i-remove-the-proprietary-ati-drivers Will this also work on elementary OS? I am afraid to try it, since last time I did stuff myself I must have made mistakes, so this time I am not touching it until I get confirmation.
