    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.
    Thank you !!!

    I realized you were joking, but i thought you were saying that the 4.11 kernel was released. I literally double checked to see if it was the 4.11 rather than 4.10 kernel that was released

    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.

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

    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! (:

    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
