  • amdgpu only boots with 'nomodeset'

    Hi!

    I'm using an up-to-date Arch distribution with amdgpu and the OSS stack with a 7950HD.

    That system does not boot anymore and gets stuck after the SystemD information

    'starting version 234' or, now, 'starting version 235'


    When I add the 'nomodeset' kernel parameter, the system boots, but it's not much of use for me.


    Is this a known bug, or am I doing something wrong?


    Thanks!

    nomodeset disables the kernel driver. We'd need more information (e.g., dmesg output). Please file a bug (https://bugs.freedesktop.org) and attach your dmesg output and xorg log.

      Hi Alex,

      thanks for your reply.

      Everything works as expected after adding kernel parameter 'amdgpu.si_support=1' .
