My system has a three monitor setup:

  1. Monitor 1 connected to the onboard i915 chip
  2. Monitor 2 & 3 connected to a Radeon RX 560 GPU

This configuration worked until I upgraded CentOS to the 3.10.0-862.2.3.el7.x86_64 kernel.

After the kernel upgrade only Monitor 1 (attached to the onboard i915 controller) is working. Monitor 2 & 3 aren't receiving a signal.

The output of lshw shows the Radeon display as -display UNCLAIMED.

 $ sudo lshw -c video

lspci | grep VGA shows both the onboard GPU and the Radeon:

02:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Baffin [Radeon RX 550 640SP / RX 560] (rev cf)

lsmod | grep radeon returned nothing so I created /etc/modules-load.d/radeon.conf to load the module at boot. The output of lsmod | grep radeon is now:

i2c_algo_bit           13413  3 i915,amdgpu,radeon
drm_kms_helper        176920  3 i915,amdgpu,radeon

The radeon module now loads during the boot process but lshw still outputs -display UNCLAIMED and the connected monitors still receive no signal.


I found the beta version (18.20-579836, released 2018-05-08) under the enterprise radeon pro sections of the main download page. It specifically boasts RHEL 7.5 support.


It took me a while to realize that I had upgraded to CentOS 7.5, and that the old drivers explicitly state support for 7.4. During that time I had tried to go from amdgpu 17.50-511655 to 18.10-572953, but that was giving: amdgpu dkms failed for running kernel.
