I can't install AMD proprietary amdgpu-pro driver

Like the question said above. This is what I have tried so far, which is basically doing what the wiki says.
Here is the what I entered in the terminal:
yay -S amdgpu-pro

this is what I get back from the terminal:
Error: Could not find all required packages:
    binfmt-support (Wanted by: amdgpu-pro)

I have tried installing bitfmt-support, whatever that is, and get this error
Error: Could not find all required packages:
    binfmt-support (Target)


This is my system. I currently have the opensource driver install.

Screenshot of what I tried

Any help is appreciated. I want the proprietary driver because open source driver runs atrociously for a game I wish to play, which is HoI4. Fps is like 5 in this game. I did not have this issue before so I am thinking if switching the open source driver to the proprietary one would help.

1. Don't post screenshots of text, paste the actual text: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Co … ow_to_post

2. Read the AUR wiki page and learn how to install packages without an AUR helper before you blindly rely upon one.

Have you read the comments on the amdgpu-pro page?

Also https://lists.archlinux.org/pipermail/a … 22626.html

Re: I can't install AMD proprietary amdgpu-pro driver

Why do you want to install amdgpu-pro anyway? You will need to downgrade the kernel and xorg.
That dependency of the AUR package was deleted, you can read some comments about that on the AUR page: https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/amdgpu-pro/

Re: I can't install AMD proprietary amdgpu-pro driver

have you tried installing only the OpenCL component of AMDGPU Pro? the open source drivers work great and the OpenCL component covers the gaps that the open source driver doesn't. the benefit to this is that you don't need to downgrade your kernel or XOrg (which is the entire purpose of AMDGPU in the first place, ironically).
