        Why is Debian unstable / testing behind with even kernel 4.18.x? I'm really waiting for a few critical fixes for amdgpu.

          In the meanwhile, I still can't encode H.264 with my Vega card...

          It's like they almost completely stopped work on VCE 4.0 as soon as VCN hit Phoronix.

            That's what I see from vainfo for my Vega 56:

            Code:
            vainfo: Driver version: Mesa Gallium driver 18.1.6 for Radeon RX Vega (VEGA10, DRM 3.25.0, 4.17.0-3-amd64, LLVM 6.0.1)
            vainfo: Supported profile and entrypoints
                  VAProfileMPEG2Simple            : VAEntrypointVLD
                  VAProfileMPEG2Main              : VAEntrypointVLD
                  VAProfileVC1Simple              : VAEntrypointVLD
                  VAProfileVC1Main                : VAEntrypointVLD
                  VAProfileVC1Advanced            : VAEntrypointVLD
                  VAProfileH264ConstrainedBaseline: VAEntrypointVLD
                  VAProfileH264ConstrainedBaseline: VAEntrypointEncSlice
                  VAProfileH264Main               : VAEntrypointVLD
                  VAProfileH264Main               : VAEntrypointEncSlice
                  VAProfileH264High               : VAEntrypointVLD
                  VAProfileH264High               : VAEntrypointEncSlice
                  VAProfileHEVCMain               : VAEntrypointVLD
                  VAProfileHEVCMain               : VAEntrypointEncSlice
                  VAProfileHEVCMain10             : VAEntrypointVLD
                  VAProfileNone                   : VAEntrypointVideoProc
            Shouldn't VAEntrypointEncSlice mean that encoding is supported?

              I guess things were put on hold a bit more time because of that shitty intel's licence bullshit recently

                You mean for the microcode? Didn't Intel just update it to resolve that mess?

                  Yes microcodes are uploaded now, package was ready since 08.08... but they were waiting what will come from that for 2 weeks

                    Hopefully kernels will get unblocked now.
