    Phoronix: AMDVLK Driver Updated With Environment Variable To Enable Experimental Extensions

    AMD normally just does one code drop per week to their open-source "AMDVLK" Linux Vulkan driver code-base but now today marks the second time this week being greeted by new code.

        I looked at the code. The way to enable it is not to set the variable to 1, but to list needed extensions you want to enable separated by space.

        In this case this should do it:

        Code:
        export AMDVLK_ENABLE_DEVELOPING_EXT='VK_EXT_transform_feedback'
        To enable all, use

        Code:
        export AMDVLK_ENABLE_DEVELOPING_EXT='all'

          That needs to be in the article.
