    Phoronix: AMD Begins Focusing On Bug Fixes For Linux 5.7 Graphics Driver Code

    Passing the point that new feature code is generally permitted into DRM-Next for in turn hitting the next mainline kernel merge window, AMD's open-source graphics driver developers have been turning their attention to bug fixes for all the new feature code set for Linux 5.7...

    Well,... I hope, there will be fix for the bug causing black screen after waking up from sleep. It happens to me maybe once per ~15 sleep resumes, on Ryzen 2700U PRO,... It's pretty much annoying, as I must restart computer and reopen all applications.

      Hmm... when they will fix the Zero RPM feature that doesn't work on Linux, meaning more noise and more useless power consumption ?

        Shouldn't that be part of the card vendors firmware?

          I have exactly the same CPU on a HP Elitebook 755 G5, but I never encountered this issue. Running on the latest Fedora since I bought it over a year ago.

            I have a HP ENVY x360 Convertible 15-cp0xxx with Ryzen 7 2700u (non pro). Mine used to have similar symptoms as yours.
            Using the following grub arguments on fedora, made it stable:
            no_console_suspend amdgpu.gpu_recovery=1 init_on_free=0

              I've got Lenovo A485 and Ubuntu 19.10 (probably there are some driver differences,...).

              Thanks, I'll try adding this to grub:

              Code:
              no_console_suspend amdgpu.gpu_recovery=1 init_on_free=0

                Re: the work to get HDCP support ready for Renoir/Picasso...

                Will this also include the various Navi GPU's, or is it limited to APU's?

                i.e. Perhaps because it is easier to content-lock the video pipeline if that is a single integrated product (as first happened with kabylake), rather than discrete CPU+GPU.

                  What are some caveats with your 5700xt? Freesync working ok on the 5700xt yet? I ordered a Gigabyte 5700xt then canceled later on in the day. I just felt, "not yet, wait for some verification from those brazen good ladies and gents diving into uncharted territory". I am at the point where I feel maybe I should wait at least until stuff is supported to the level of a rx580 and price drops.

                  I know the rx580 is one great gpu but am on a gtx 1070 right now and want an upgrade but I still don't feel the time is right just yet but think it's only a number of months away before stuff gets really solid for the 5700xt and cheaper.

                  Just wanted to know your experience at the moment as a current owner.

                  Thank you.

                    I had to disable AMDGPU.dc for my multi-monitor setup to work with my R9 285. Is this getting fixed anytime soon?
