Are there any linux distributions that ship with kernels all ready built with
CONFIG_DRM_AMDGPU_SI=Y? Mainly I would rather not attempt to compile a kernel at the moment and I have a spare partition open and would like to try out the new drivers.
I have a "southern Islands" gcn v1.0 AMD Pitcairn XT gpu, FirePro w7000. While the radeon driver is ok for watching video I really originally bought the card for its compute capability ie openCL, and because it was known performer with Auto-desk cad products(I was dual booting with windows7 at the time of purchase) and so I need amdgpu[-pro?] for compute uses.
I'd trade in the card for a better supported model but other than power consumption it seems equivalent to an RX 570 and I'm short on cash.
