I have done the following

* added radeon.cik_support=0 amdgpu.cik_support=1 to grub
* ocl-icd-opencl-dev and it's dependencies was already installed (also tried reinstalling it out of desperation)
* ocl-icd-libopencl1 is installed

if I run FAHBench it works fine

I haven't tried to get my RX570 running under Linux but before installing the AMD-Pro drivers did you try the open source drivers? I've never bothered with Pro drivers before so I'm not sure if that might not be causing an issue.

AMD + OpenCL in linux is a nightmare. I got one system working a year or so back and I'm not really sure how I did it.

OpenCL: Not detected: clGetDeviceIDs() returned -1
This is your problem

Try this:

Code:
sudo apt install opencl-dev

EDIT: Hrmm seems like you have the ICD installed already -- is the opencl-dev package just a virtual package that installs ocl-icd-opencl-dev or is it something else?

I picked up a radeon VII a few months back and was able get get it to run boinc GPU projects on linux using this set of instructions.

However, I was not able to get F@H running on the radeon VII. My guess is that user 'fahclient' does not have permission to load the OpenCl drivers, because I was able to tun FAH when I started the client manually in my home directory. If you'd like to try this here's what I did.

sudo systemctl disable FAHClient <----disables the FAHClient service that starts automatically during boot.
sudo reboot
In your home directory make folder FAH: mkdir FAH
cd FAH
wget http://fah-web.stanford.edu/file-releases/public/GPUs.txt
cp /etc/fahclient/config.xml ./
FAHClient <---- this starts the client

I know this isn't ideal but it works for me.
