    [SOLVED] Is my AMD Radeon R6 Support?

    I have a HP Probook laptop with an AMD A10 APU 9874 c5 with Radeon R6 Graphics.

    My display is NOT working correctly. I have to boot with nomodeset, otherwise I boot to a blank screen. Resolution is low, does not wake from sleep or hibernation and no dual monitor working.

    I am so confused by my research. I've discovered that some AMD graphic cards are no longer supported by AMD or recent kernels. I don't know much about graphic cards, so does this apply to my card or not? If so, does this mean I'm screwed with ever getting this laptop working correctly with a recent kernel?

    Card info.

    you may do better using CentOS 7.3 and the crimson 15.12 driver

    Carrizo is a Volcanic Island GCN 1.2 card so xorg-x11-drv-amdgpu needs to be installed.
    There is a COPR repository allowing further optimization for this card: https://copr.fedorainfracloud.org/co...inline-kernel/ should you need only open source driver which AMD recommends.

    Thank you Finalzone!

    Installed the copr repo and everythng is working.

    You have cleared up several things for me. In my research I saw several cards referenced as GCN X.X or as Sea Island or Southern Island and I had no idea if my card was associated with any of those names.
