    Phoronix: More AMD FreeSync Patches Likely Coming To Linux 5.2

    Meanwhile we haven't seen any new patches around the HDMI and FreeSync 2 bits.
    DAMM IT!

      Does anybody know what the situation is regarding low framerate compensation (LFC)?

        I hope to see some Wayland work for FreeSync. I'm not moving back because of FreeSync, in case somebody want to propose this ;-)

          R41N3R could you please tell me how you manage the clipboard in a Plasma Wayland session? Klipper doesn't save anything if the application gets closed directly after copying (not pasting). Gnome Wayland has other issues, but at least Gpaste seems to just work and is properly integrated into the shell via an extension.

            Right click on Klipper > click configure > enable "prevent empty clipboard".
            That should do it.

              Nope.
              I already set that option because otherwise it imho isn't functioning properly even on Xorg.

                LFC is implemented: https://patchwork.freedesktop.org/pa...es=53559&rev=2

                    It is easy to check, find the corresponding file and compare. The AMD wip kernel has the LFC patch.
