    Also I've compiled kernel and it still doesn't work. Problem must be something else.

    I need it for vulkan drivers and maybe in the future for OpenCL

    I've compiled linux kernel 4.14 and I still have the same problem.
    Hi

    So, your card only support's OpenCL?;
    https://www.amd.com/en-us/products/graphics/desktop/r7#

    If you want to run Tumbleweed, then I suggest switching to the amdgpu driver and giving that a whirl first (and update your system to kernel 4.18.0/20180820), if so there are a few things to do;

    Add the following to the grub kernel options;
    Code:
    amdgpu.si_support=1
    Blacklist radeon
    Code:
    cat /etc/modprobe.d/50-radeon.conf 
    
    blacklist radeon
    Then rebuild initrd with the mkinitrd command...

    hello, I have already tried adding amdgpu.si_support=0 radeon.si_support=0 to the boot params on kernel 4.17
    Also my card (hd 7770) supports full amdgpu-pro driver , but I can't install driver with --px parameter on opensuse ( didn't try on ubuntu) (error message: "No provider of 'xorg-x11-drv-modesetting-18.30-635379' found.")

    Ohh you meant amdgpu without installing -pro.


    If I try to boot with amdgpu I get following error:
    "Failed to read display number from pipe
    Display server failed to start. Exiting"
    GUI is not working, but at least PC doesn't freeze (I can still tty).

    I've tried changing display manager to lightdm, it still won't start GUI.

    Hi
    To use the OSS amdgpu it's 1 not 0 and 0 for radeon... I think your
    going to have to head off to the AMD forums to confirm that it will
    work with the 4.18.x kernel....

    I would not recommend using a non-standard kernel with all of the
    recent CVE's, but would suggest try Leap 15 4.12.x kernel?

    xorg-x11-drv-modesetting was obsoleted around 4 Ubuntu releases back when the modesetting driver was merged into xserver-xorg-core (1.17.x). To use the modesetting driver with any 1.17.x or newer Xorg, an easy way is to simply uninstall the gfxchip-specific Xorg driver package(s). In TW those would be xf86-video-* (except for xf86-video-fbdev and xf86-video-vesa).

    Hi
    So you have two options;

    1- If you want to use the amdgpu-pro package, then you need to head off
    to the AMD forums since it's a proprietary driver

    2- Switch back to the amdgpu OSS driver by removing the above and
    ensuring it's all gone, configure the grub options, then if still not
    working with the current (4.18.5) released Tumbleweed version to raise
    a bug report and work with the openSUSE kernel folks to get it fixed....
