I have a ryzen pc with an AMD Radeon Vega card, running ubuntu 22.04LTS, and I'm trying to install the amdgpu-install_22.10.2.50102-1_all driver so that I can use Blender 3.2 and have HIP support. However, I'm having a terrible time, and all my efforts have been for nought.

When I run the command amdgpu-install -y --opencl=rocr

I get the following ouput:

linux-headers-5.15.0-40-generic is already the newest version (5.15.0-40.43).
linux-headers-5.15.0-40-generic set to manually installed.
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created

I was under the impression that the driver was supported in Ubuntu 22.04LTS. I am new to Ubuntu so how do I get these installed if they're not installable, or is it all impossible?

So, despite AMD releasing an official driver package for Ubuntu 22 they didn't actually make sure the dependencies were compatible. They are aware of this and have promised to fix it, you can follow that in these two issues, here and here.

Within one of these issue threads is the following workaround:

We are essentially going to download the rocm-llvm package, extract it, modify it, compile it again and then install it, fulfilling the dependencies the AMD Drivers need to install.

I didn't encounter the errors with libegl and libgbm1 so they might be related to something else or they may have been fixed by the latest amdgpu-install which I have: version 22.20.50200.

  1. Open a terminal, create a new directory and go into it. mkdir temp cd temp

  2. Download the rocm-llvm package apt download rocm-llvm. It's 695MB.

  3. Extract it ar x rocm-llvm_14.0.0.22204.50200-65_amd64.deb

  4. Extract control.tar.xz tar xf control.tar.xz

  5. Open control in a text editor gedit control

  6. Locate the line starting with Depends and replace it with this: Depends: python3, libc6, libstdc++6|libstdc++8, libstdc++-5-dev|libstdc++-7-dev|libstdc++-10-dev, libgcc-5-dev|libgcc-7-dev|libgcc-10-dev, rocm-core

  7. Save the file and close the editor.

  8. Rebuild control.tar.xz tar c postinst prerm control | xz -c > control.tar.xz

  9. Rebuild the .deb file ar rcs rocm-llvm_14.0.0.22204.50200-65_amd64.deb debian-binary control.tar.xz data.tar.xz

  10. Install new dependencies sudo apt-get install libstdc++-10-dev libgcc-10-dev

  11. Install the new .deb file sudo dpkg -i rocm-llvm_14.0.0.22204.50200-65_amd64.deb

  12. Install dependency for rocm sudo apt install rocm-core

  13. Download the latest Ubuntu Driver installer wget https://repo.radeon.com/amdgpu-install/22.20/ubuntu/jammy/amdgpu-install_22.20.50200-1_all.deb

  14. Install the latest Ubuntu Driver Installer. If it asks if you want to overwrite any sources files, you need to type Y so it will do this, if you've upgraded from 20.04 it is asking if you want to replace the old 20.04 sources with the new 22.04 versions.

  15. Run the driver installer again: sudo amdgpu-install --opencl=rocr -y

If at the end of installation it says

Error! Could not locate dkms.conf file.
File: /var/lib/dkms/amdgpu/ does not exist.
WARNING: amdgpu dkms failed for running kernel

Then run sudo dpkg-reconfigure amdgpu-dkms and it should resolve it.



amdgpu-install --usecase=opencl,graphics -y

The issue is that the default "usecase" includes hip, which isn't supported yet for 22.04 due to a python dependency issue. Installing only graphics (mesa) and opencl should be fine.


I have the same problem. Now I fixed.

check package files

dpkg -L amdgpu-install

here is key.

/etc/apt/sources.list.d/amdgpu.list /etc/apt/sources.list.d/rocm.list

there is an error/typo in these files.

Try changing from focal to jammy, as in "Jammy Jellyfish".

I installed successfully with below.

amdgpu-install --usecase=graphics,opencl --vulkan=amdvlk,pro


As mentioned by cloudqq, the sources for 22.04 are still pointed to focal.

But the repo name for 22.04 is jammy, not jimmy
