    With latest code I still get soft lockup during boot and UVD not working (E-350 & HD 6870). Also on my HD 6870, bad 3D performance because it doesn't increase speeds in games.
    On my E-350 I also get a lock-up but it works if I remove the SUMO_uvd firmware file.


    • glad i'm not the only one with e350 problems with DPM and UVD enabled.

      fritsch one of the XBMC coders posted a patch to get uvd and dpm working together.

          Yeah, this works, thanks.


          • black screen on 6740

            while an early try with drm-next-3.11-wip worked (but was slow-ish),
            latest drm-next-3.11 @f4dec318 gives a flash of garbled output
            then black screen, as soon as drm loads. Kernel crash.
            Nothing about the crash is logged on disk after reboot.
            PC is imac12,2, efi-booted.
