Slightly bummed out that I'm having so much difficulty getting OpenCL working w/my 5700 XT under Linux distros that don't have access to the AUR. I've found guides for Fedora and Ubuntu but haven't had much luck yet. opencl-amd in the AUR is quite painless to get running tho.


Of course it's my understanding that this would all be super easy if I were to just use AMDGPU-PRO as provided by AMD to work atop the free driver but I game on my system and I'd rather not have performance tank in any of my games which is what I've read would happen.

Still very happy with my 5700 XT and not regretting jumping ship from Nvidia after so many years but this whole OpenCL thing on Linux was a most unexpected and unpleasant surprise.
