Description Edward O'Callaghan 2015-09-03 00:57:25 UTC
Description of problem:

A range of new AMD/Radeon cards need ucode/firmware blobs not found in the linux-firmware package current rev. These blobs are critical for the amdgpu kernel driver to correctly modload to support these cards [e.g., Radeon R9 380].

The kernel driver looks within /usr/lib/firmware/amdgpu/* for said fw/ucode, further these are needed within the initrd ramdisk for early boot to make sure the console is correctly displayed during boot.

Work-around:

  $ wget -r -l 1 http://people.freedesktop.org/~agd5f/radeon_ucode/tonga
  $ sudo mkdir /usr/lib/firmware/amdgpu
  $ sudo mv bla/bla/*.bin /usr/lib/firmware/amdgpu/
  $ sudo rmmod amdgpu
  $ sudo modprobe amdgpu

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

 linux-firmware 20150715-54.git69640304.fc23

Comment 1 Josh Boyer 2015-09-03 13:16:14 UTC
I emailed the AMD firmware maintainer.  We'll see what he says.

Comment 2 Josh Boyer 2015-09-03 15:18:11 UTC
I've added a patch from the AMD maintainer.  This will be rolled out as an update shortly.

Comment 6 John Thacker 2015-09-04 14:30:13 UTC
The update works for me on Fedora 23, and now the modesetting xorg driver works and I get OpenGL 3.0. xorg-X11 is still looking for the amdgpu driver in order to get core profile support (OpenGL > 3.0; it will be 3.3 with the current LLVM and 4.1 when Fedora updates to LLVM 3.7.0), and Fedora doesn't have a package for that yet. (Perhaps xorg-x11-drv-amdgpu will be added when Mesa 11.0 is released.)
