    Phoronix: AMD Staging Another Fix To Try Correcting Some Raven Ridge Systems On Linux

    AMD Raven Ridge APUs have been out for more than one year now and at least under Linux can still be quite problematic depending upon the particular motherboard BIOS and other factors. Fortunately, while Raven 2 and Picasso APU support is appearing to be in better shape, the AMD open-source developers haven't forgot about these problematic Raven 1 systems...

    It would be nice to see a lot better support for APUs from AMD..
    I own a kavery A10-7800,

    When you try to get sensors output, you get:
    Code:
    fam15h_power-pci-00c4
    Adapter: PCI adapter
    power1:           N/A  (crit =  65.19 W)
    
    k10temp-pci-00c3
    Adapter: PCI adapter
    temp1:        +11.2°C  (high = +70.0°C)
                           (crit = +70.0°C, hyst = +69.0°C)
    A good support would mean more sales,
    Also because AMD followed the OpenSource path, in the moment of choosing which thing to get.. I think AMD from the beginning would get a advantage there..
    And to be honest, the amd APUs have the required processing power, plus the required graphics power...

      Edge cases and issues like this are the things that destroy all the other contributions to the divers they put out.

      On Intel systems, you would not have to pick being able to boot or functionality.

        While this is amazing its not a great fix at all. I have a system where the firmware loads totally OK and works. This just disables some stuff for me.Really not great way to fix it. At least give us option to load it if it worked.

          Does this applies for a Ryzen 5 2400G APU?

            I also have a working Ryzen HP Envy Laptop with F35 BIOS. I've never experienced boot issues or lockups.
            The touchscreen is a bit hit or miss. But apart from that I am very happy with it.

              Actually Plasma Wayland will not load anymore with my Ryzen 3 2200G. And on my HP Envy x360 the Ryzen 5 2500U Linux >= 4.20 will not boot at all. I really hope AMD will provide some fixes, but I would like to see at least options to load problematic functionalities.

                That might be a mesa/llvm rev issue. Kernel 5.1 and mesa 19.1-19.2 seem to be doing OK atm, at least for the 2200g I'm configuring.

                  This is not a fix. This is calling your car a tricycle when you get a flat tire.

                    I can't boot on anything over 4.19. I was wondering have you tried 5.2 yet, does it work?
