Edits to clarify:
Will the amdgpu-pro driver work with an RX 460? I got it from the amd downloads for rx 460...
I was hoping to CPU + GPU render in Blender, but as of now it still says, "no compatible GPUs found for path tracing" in preferences. I was hoping an updated pro driver would fix this. Eevee runs fine, and even cycles but I was hoping to use both to render.
Either way, It seems like the open source driver is running still anyway.
System info: I'm using Blender 2.92.0 on Ubuntu 20.04.2 LTS. I have a budget system with an RX 460, and I just installed the most current amd proprietary drivers (20.50 release) (pro stack)
sudo lshw -c video

i had already installed the amdgpu-pro driver with:
$ ./amdgpu-pro-install -y --opencl=pal,legacy
except that it then asked me to instead run
./amdgpu-pro-install -y --opencl=rocr
Which I did, and it says it was installed if i run it again.
So is it still using the open source driver? Should I have uninstalled that first? I mean of course I ran across plenty of other comments in similar scenarios ( with other gpus), but of course I don't want to start --purge this and --uninstall that several times over recklessly.
