New features which should be implemented in Porteus; suggestions are welcome. All questions or problems with testing releases (alpha, beta, or rc) should go in their relevant thread here, rather than the Bug Reports section.

PCI IDs supported by latest AMD catalyst driver

Post#1 by fanthom » 11 Sep 2014, 14:00

hi guys,

does anybody know where i can find a list GPUs - with pciids enclosed - supported by latest AMD driver?
something like here but updated:
http://developer.amd.com/resources/hard ... d-1002-li/
http://amd-dev.wpengine.netdna-cdn.com/ ... _20121.txt
this info is needed for rc1 of upcoming Porteus release.

thank you in advance.

Interesting that update-pciids is not kept up to date. Perhaps the sourceforge project is more up to date?

yes - i was querying pciids database before:

Code: Select all

egrep 'Radeon HD 5|Radeon HD 6|Radeon HD 7|Radeon HD 8' /usr/share/pci.ids | grep -v Audio | cut -d" " -f-2 | grep -v "#" | awk '{print$NF}' | sort | uniq > amd-catalyst
but this is not reliable and latest generation is not labelled as 'Radeon HD' anymore, ie:

Code: Select all

grep Oland pci.ids
        6610  Oland XT [Radeon HD 8670 / R7 250]
        6611  Oland [Radeon HD 8570 / R7 240 OEM]
        6613  Oland PRO [Radeon R7 240]
so i wanted to get some source directly from AMD, something like this page for nVidia:

i think i know how to do this - will read supported PCI IDS directly from the driver :)
something like:

Code: Select all

grep fglrx /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/modules.pcimap
and then extract pciids. that should be the most reliable way ...

EDIT:\\
and the final command is:

Code: Select all

grep fglrx /lib/modules/`uname -r`/modules.alias | cut -ds -f2 | sed 's/ pci:v00001002d0000//' | sort > amd-catalyst
works perfectly :)
