    if the problem is outdated mesa versions, why not blacklist those outdated mesa versions instead of blacklisting the driver?

      I've been running the AMD drivers very successfully one a pretty wide range of hardware for some time now.
      The nVidia proprietary drivers do work, but force you to stick with certain older kernel and X releases.

      My experience with nouveau has been almost entirely negative however.

        I wouldn't even be running AMD but I have a whole bunch of AMD cards left over from the old mining days.
        It's just amazing how you trying put blame for your overheated hardware on AMD when you're likely have issues with memory corruption or BGA degradation.

        I rarely use my RX580 on Linux these days and mostly through DRI_PRIME, but on Windows / Mac VMs it's work flawlessly.

          Watching a ChiCom at Google blacklist the only open source video driver platform is so deliciously fantastic that it might actually wake up a few lefties for once. How's that CoC taste now?

              About 5 minutes ago a Windows VM using a passthrough AMD GPU just bluescreened running some simple OpenGL code I'm working on. I've rebooted the same machine with a nVidia card passed through, works great. AMD sucks.
              /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-amdgpu.conf
              Section "Device"
              Identifier "AMD"
              Driver "amdgpu"
              Option "TearFree" "true"
              EndSection

              Give that a whirl.

                  Sure, with AMD opensource driver you just need to wait several weeks, then to compile amd's wip kernel from developer's git and download some firmwares from unknown ftps and noone wil guide you during process. Looks like you have a memory of goldfish.

                    I guess this decision is based on outdated open source drivers used in the Google Linux distro used internally within the company.

                    Sure Nouveau is unstable on some hardware, but then there are a lot of driver bug workarounds that they've added for Android, Windows, Mac OS etc. sometimes even for specific hardware and devices, specific driver versions. So it's not like they can't do that for Nouveau (or accept contributions for the same).

                      Can you rephrase it with more racism?
