I am trying to get cycles to work using hip on a new pc build running Ubuntu 22.04. PC has an AMD Radeon 6800 XT. I downloaded Blender 3.4 through the website and extracted the software in executable form instead of building it myself. The 'out of the box' version worked just fine, but I wasn't able to use HIP for cycles rendering because I wasn't running the right drivers/blender couldn't detect the gpu.
I then install the AMDGPU pro drivers for Linux (released on 12-13-2022), including OpenCL, and confirm that it was installed correctly. [used:
amdgpu-install --usecase=workstation --opencl=rocr].
However, installing these drivers now causes Blender to instantly crash. I open the software and I can see it start and open the main window for a fraction of a second before auto-closing.
How do I fix this? Sub-question: how do I run Blender in a debug type mode so I can see exactly what the crash issue is?
