    Phoronix: Linux 4.17 Stable Has Been Settling Well, Coming Soon To Fedora

    Since the release of Linux 4.17 almost two weeks ago, I haven't heard of any horror stories, Linux 4.17 continues running excellent on all of my test systems, the 4.17.1 point release was quite small, and more distributions are gearing up to ship this latest kernel release...

    Michael - Have you run any undervolting / 'wattman functionality' tests on Polaris cards?

      It's on my TODO list but haven't had time to look into it or the documentation on it for testing yet.

        I installed 4.17.1 on some servers at work, running fine there.
        An attempt with my entertainment PC at home, however, showed the expected disasterous result due to amdgpu.dc=1 required there - instead of the "days between crashes" I can reach with some 4.13.x kernel, 4.17.1, like all the newer kernels, crashes consistently minutes after booting and starting some firefox browsing. :-(
        Given how the frequency of crashes has increased with the newer kernel versions, and given the silence in the related bug reports, I have given up hope to see a stable amdgpu driver anytime soon.

          Is ROCM openCL expected to work on Fedora 28 with kernel 4.17? a ROCM COPR repo would be really useful. Still using amdgpu-pro just for the OpenCL bits for darktable and gimp. Being able to use 4.17+ROCM would be a much cleaner (and up-to-date) solution.

              It should also arrive in Tumbleweed, it is being tested.

                Can this be done on Vega?

                  Hmmm when writing any value to pp_power_profile_mode with Polaris or Vega on Linux 4.17 or 4.18 Git, I just get a write error for invalid argument... Tried upgrading the firmware too, no luck. Need to dig back through the patches to see what I am missing. bridgman is there something silly being overlooked? Following the comment from one of the patches, but looks like I must have overlooked something for trying to get the POWER_SAVING mode.

                    Well, hasn't been running well on my desktop. The AMDGPU driver is now totally broken for my R9 390 - refuses to boot (or atleast, the screen is completely blank a second after kernel startup - modeset doesn't succeed).

                    I think I should just quit trying to be an Android developer, and focus entirely on fixing this crappy AMDGPU driver, or write my own driver.
