Here's a quick guide to install amdgpu-dkms + mesa-git to get Navi cards working on Linux 5.2.x:

$ cat <<EOF | sudo tee -a /etc/pacman.conf
Server =\$repo/\$arch
SigLevel = PackageOptional

$ sudo pacman -Syu dkms linux-headers mesagit
$ curl | tar -xvzf - 
$ cd amdgpu-dkms
$ makepkg -si
$ sudo reboot

Note that amdgpu-dkms cannot be used with linux-zen (the driver will segfault on boot and you need a hard poweroff to turn the machine off).

@gardotd426 unfortunately I'm no longer using Arch. Since AMDGPU now targets 5.4.x it should be relatively easy to repackage without the need to patch for compatibility.

From a quick glance, 20.30 code this seems to be 5.6 driver code plus few features backported from -staging (mainly support for unreleased Sienna Cichlid/Navi 21/RX 6000 whatever you name it). If anything, linux-amd-staging-drm-next-git should contains all the fixes that exists in 20.30.

@sirn, Please update this to the actual newest driver release (20.30). There is a suggestion that the 20.30 dkms driver solves long-standing driver crashes for some Navi users (and no, 20.30's dkms is not identical to the upstream kernel driver).

The entire package structure of the tarball has changed, amdgpu-dkms's versioning system seems to have changed, the PKGBUILD fails even with substituting the correct url, package number version, all that, because of a changed directory structure within the .deb package.

[Ignore, please set this as DEPRECATED as the module has been merged upstream .... ]

This package fails to compile so far with: linux-5.7.8-arch1-1 (look for the drmP.h that doesn't exist anymore) linux-5.7.8-AMD (look for the drmP.h that doesn't exist anymore) linux-5.4.51-1-lts (/include/kcl/kcl_reservation.h:4:10: fatal error: linux/reservation.h: No such file or directory)

Can we set the dependencies right so we don't have to fish in the dark for a compatible linux version? Does the 19.50 fix some of those issues?

@TomCatT you should not need to use this package with kernel 5.3, the in-kernel amdgpu driver is already newer than AMDGPU 19.30.

I get this error

LD [M] /var/lib/dkms/amdgpu-19.30/855429/build/ttm/amdttm.o make[1]: [scripts/ /var/lib/dkms/amdgpu-19.30/855429/build/amd/amdgpu] Error 2 make: [Makefile:1626: module/var/lib/dkms/amdgpu-19.30/855429/build] Error 2 make: Leaving directory '/usr/lib/modules/5.3.6-1-MANJARO/build'

@Terence I’m out of town at the moment, but I’ll look into it as soon as I’m back!

@sirn I tried it again but for some reason now it's working. I'm wondering it was something with my graphic card (Vega 56).

Section "Device"
     Identifier "AMD"
     Driver "amdgpu"
     Option "VariableRefresh" "true"
     Option "DRI" "3"

And the black screen occured when I turned it on from the monitor settings.

PS: Do you think you can include the 2 patches (radeon_extratemps-5.2.patch and amdgpu_extratemps-5.2.patch) from the repo I linked you?

@Terence I don’t use Freesync, but can you tell me more about your setup?

Terence commented on 2019-08-23 22:46 (UTC)

Hmm freesync seems broken with this package? I get a black screen upon activating it.

Terence commented on 2019-08-22 22:06 (UTC)

@sirn Ah ok thank you very much for the clarification. Do you think you can include ?
