    It is dead easy to create a custom kernel from latest amdgpu kernel code when I found stable kernel settings in one week, see:

    I thought you were always bashing software for not being as noobie-friendly enough as Xfce and Debian, but now you're suggesting compiling a custom kernel? How is that noobie-friendly?

      https://cgit.freedesktop.org/~agd5f/...-next-4.11-wip
      Ideally these branches should be private, so that people like you can't troll about them What you see there is AMD's staging and semi-internal stuff.

        He became more troll active, since Debian Testing was frozen 15 days ago. So things are boring there now for him, as troll can't roll anymore

          Also he recommending what he had learned last year and that is to compile kernel

          Reason he is recommending Ubuntu mesa PPA on Debian is that as he don't know how to compile 32bit mesa on 64bit system So instead of asking questions like normal people when they don't know something or search how to do that he just choosed bullshit and decided to troll around, that is much easier as he know everything the best

          Trolls are easy to understand, these always have easy solution for everything while in the same time hide the fact how much they actually don't know

          He was also troll last year as he first appeared in the forums when he used fglrx, same troll who just changed object

            Just use Arch with the Mesa Git Repo and install the AMD Staging Kernel. That's currently 4.9 and it works like a charm! Audio via Bluetooth is working! (:

              Doh! Yes, I meant DC. I wrote that at ~ 2 AM and I was a little tired :-)

                Not sure, but my RX480 , work's with kernel 4.10, out of the box i can play WoW with 75 Fps 1440x900 , without the AMDGPU-DRIVER 16.60 installed is kernel 4.10 supporting RX 's of AMD out of the box ? O yeah use ubuntu 16.06 LTS x64

                  You are using the opensource driver (called AMDGPU), and Mesa (opensource 3D acceleration provider). AMDGPU is shipped with the kernel like all other opensource drivers, Mesa is also shipped by default in most linux systems.

                  The driver you install from AMD site is called AMDGPU-PRO and is made by combining AMDGPU with a proprietary 3D acceleration provider.

                      He's got a number of posts like that, including a series that goes into the weeds of the X protocol. Again, they are all very readable.
