[Radeon/Tonga] missing xf86-video-amdgpu package
Last modified: 2015-11-16 13:25:34 EST
Description of problem:
It maybe necessary for the new xf86-video-amdgpu to be package up to properly support CI type hw on all possible configurations of Fedora 23. Perhaps it is prudent to package it up and make it available.
Radeon users with Tonga and newer cards are currently in limbo.
We can't build Catalyst for Fedora 23 because the gcc 5 compiled Catalyst simply doesn't load.
The amdgpu Xorg driver is not shipped with Fedora 23.
The radeon Xorg driver does not support Tonga and newer.
Please escalate this ticket's severity to at least Medium.
xorg-x11-drv-modesetting should be fine as the driver.
modesetting provides only software rendering.
The amdgpu stack is incomplete without the Xorg driver.
modesetting provides hw support on this card.
Maybe it's just me, then.
modesetting falls back to software rendering on my system with several "Invalid ROM Contents" errors. ASUS Radeon R9 380 4G "Strix Gaming" edition.
amdgpu works fresh out of a build. Why not include an amdgpu driver?
because modesetting is exactly the same, and there is no need to support both.
I'm not sure where Invalid ROM contents could be coming from, where do you see it.
Maybe you are mixing up amdgpu the kernel driver with amdgpu the userspace driver. Either way it should work out of the box as-is.
Maybe file another bug with dmesg and Xorg log files.
I'm not confusing the amdgpu kernel driver with the xorg driver. That is a kernel message from the amdgpu kernel driver included for posterity.
Here are snippets from the log for AIGLX, GL and DRI2/3.

These results are significantly different.
Any tips for the modesetting driver or should I open another bug?
Ah. Could be my card is missing from the kernel amdgpu module and that's why I end up in bad shape with the modesetting driver?
