AMD GRAPHICS NOT WORKING

Postby bgoldstone » 2018-03-28 21:30

I Am Currently running Debian testing and for some reason, I cannot get the graphics to work properly. I have installed mesa-vulkan-drivers and firmware-amd-graphics. Attached is my DMESG output and LSPCI https://pastebin.com/rn9RXcDT [url][/url] https://pastebin.com/gTAi6yb9

When you say "not work properly" can you expand upon that? What isn't working, exactly? Is it a resolution issue? Black screen? Something else?

The more detail you provide, the easier it is for others to help :)

It is having some screen tearing and errors in dmesg file as well as issues with resolution when using no firmware-amd-graphics package

For the tearing, there are some options that can be configured.

On the resolution issues, do you have output?

Does the resolution change when kms starts?

Code: Select all
[    0.000000] Intel Spectre v2 broken microcode detected; disabling Speculation Control

Did you install intel-microcode? It is needed for Skylake+

Which DE? Is GNOME using Wayland or X?

The thread title is AMD but Wheelerof4te@ found a call for intel firmware. Putting this together suggests a laptop with hybrid amd/intel graphics
https://wiki.debian.org/AtiHowTo#Hybrid_Graphics
Hybrid graphics add additional issues including firmware and whether the user wants to delve into the complexity of being able to switch graphics drivers on the fly.

For basic functionality, one of the graphics drivers can often be turned off in the BIOS and the remaining graphic driver configured normally.

Well then, the OP should install inxi and give the result of
Code: Select all
inxi -G


so we have a better idea of what's going on. Plus this:

Code: Select all
It is having some screen tearing and errors in dmesg file as well as issues with resolution when using no firmware-amd-graphics package
says they are trying to get to work correctly without the firmware. That ain't gonna happen.
