there is no “amdgpu-pro-uninstall” on my current AMD driver folder neither in newly downloaded from http://download.hiveos.farm/drivers/amdgpu-pro-18.30-641594-18.04.tar.xz
so how can i remove my current driver 17.5 and update it to 18.30?

Check instructions in README file - it says what you need to do prior to trying to uninstall the drivers… Here is also link to a post I wrote with a bit more details:

I found that just like the user @alizali quoted, there “amdgpu-pro-uninstall” isnt working even when the current driver is unpacked in the /var/opt/amdgpu-pro-local. With further research it appears the amdgpu-pro-uninstall script is just a link back to the original “amdgpu-pro-install” placed in the /usr/bin/ directory. It seems as though when the contents of the /var/opt/amdgpu-pro-local is deleted to save space, the link somehow gets corrupt and doesnt want to work.

To get it working again this is what i did:

  1. unpacked the current driver version
  2. copied the content of the new unpacked file into /var/opt/amdgpu-pro-local
  3. removed the original /usr/bin/amdgpu-pro-uninstall link “rm /usr/bin/amdgpu-pro-uninstall”
  4. back in the /hive-driver/pack/amdgpu-pro-XX.XX.XXXXXX directory, i ran the “amdgpu-pro-install” command but canceling the installation when apt wants to update packages etc.
  5. this recreates the broken link to amdgpu-pro-uninstall and allows the script to function again.
  6. to proceed with the uninstall process just run “/usr/bin/amdgpu-pro-uninstall” now.

Hope it helps

После обновления драйверов не работал разгон и autofan. Помогла команда apt-get install nvidia-settings

Is the HIVE team monitoring driver updates for hashrate improvements? I prefer keeping old drivers if they’re stable, but also want to make sure I’m upgrading if there are hashrate/power saving benefits.

In short, when there’s a HIVEOS upgrade, does the HIVE team consider rolling out newer drivers?

Всем привет, а можно на русском инструкцию пошагово как обновить дрова к примеру на 18.10 для AMD? А то ума не хватает разобраться
И как предыдущие удалить?


#31

hi all! first sorry my bad english, i start with this OS and love it but now that i update hiveos and nvidia drivers i keep getting this on t-rex or enemy miner ERROR: Can’t start miner, unable to get number of CUDA devices, is nvidia driver installed?

But i do install the driver! dont know what it is please help it pass 2 days now!


#32

is there any reason why this cannot be done through VNC? I see the driver download start…vcn cuts out but that is understandable. Once I reboot however, HIVEOS does not show updated driver and miner still does not work.

Thoughts?


#33

you can’t run update via VNC because it’s used GUI
