    AMD OSS support:

    I have to admit that _latest_ Mesa git stuff (after new AMD runtime linker) + a late patch from Nicolai and Marek let all 3 luxmark versions run under Mesa OpenCL (1.1), now. Only 'Hotel Lobby' is slow and show some corruption with v3.0 and v3.1 running on RX580.
    Jan Vesely is working on relocation and image support.

    • rmmod nvidia-drm nvidia-modeset nvidia
    • echo 1 > /sys/bus/pci/devices/0000:01:00.0/remove
    • echo 1 > /sys/bus/pci/devices/0000:00:01.0/rescan
    • modprobe nvidia-drm
    • xinit -- -retro
    Damn.. I think I will just stick to correcting the output when a new application gets confused and picks the wrong one.

    I think that says it all right there. AMD is willing (and has) done great things for open source, and Nvidia (by your own admission) has not. In fact, they are actively hostile towards open source developers. AFAIC, that puts Nvidia out of consideration for Linux. If you're comfortable with proprietary drivers for a huge chunk of your OS, why are you even using Linux? But I guess it's all about "muh games". Typical gamer-only attitude.
    Yep. And, for me, most stuff comes from a gamer-only attitude and AMD has been great for us (especially for people who use their officially supported distributions). In my almost 20 years of using Linux, it has never been easier since AMD opened up their driver. It's just great not having to worry about proprietary bits being compatible with various projects making us have to pin packages back and whatnot (my experiences with both Catalyst and Nvidia); nope, now it's just install and use your computer because it's that simple. Not to mention that it's brought us projects like gallium-nine and dxvk-ags, not one but three Vulkan implementations for the AMDGPU driver, the ability for people who know what they're looking at to actually do something about odd acting games and whatnot, first class gaming support due to being used in the PS4 and Xbox One; if you don't think that helps gaming on Linux you're fooling yourself since AMD has that shared driver concept, the easiest way to get a full compositing desktop working OOTB, forcing Intel's hand and giving Intel GPU users those same benefits....

    People with the "typical gamer-only attitude" outta be thrilled about AMD and all they're doing for us directly and indirectly.

    Michael, AMD released the 19.20 AMDGPU-Pro driver yesterday.

    Next thing people like you will be telling us how and when to use our OS and software and your "muh games" bullshit meme is old.

    thanks for confirming that you were posting bullshit, because it invalidates also your current statement.

    If you don't even acknowledge that they have a proprietary driver you can't say it's bad.

    While Nvidia may not be opensource friendly ...

    Navi is a joke, so is all that AMD opensource work. AMD to save money stopped developing Linux drivers and dumped them on the community

The fact is they don't give a crap about Linux users and that will backfire at them sooner or later. While Nvidia may not be opensource friendly, they at least provide solid drivers and performance.
    I had high hopes with Navi, like most people...fool me once AMD, shame on you, fool me twice...
    you had high hopes. you have fooled yourself. Not AMD you.
