    Phoronix: Linux 4.13 Should Be Released Today With Its Many New Features

    Unless there is a last minute hiccup, the Linux 4.13 kernel should be officially released before the day is through...

    The big question for me is if there will be display support for Vega and Raven in 4.14. Interested in both but I can wait...

      From a July apparmor article here - "This request does not contain any of the newer apparmor mediation features/controls (mount, signals, network, keys, ...) that Ubuntu is currently carrying, all of which will be RFC'd on top of this."

      Any indication that those new features will arrive in 4.14, now that the base code has arrived in 4.13?

      Thinking of SLES15/Leap15, and Ubuntu 18.04.

            Looks like the Cherry Trail Dollar Cove TI PMIC is going to be in 4.14, which is real nice. No more custom kernel patching!

              I don't think so. You need DC so you need amdgpu-pro kenrel or Alex's kernel branch with staging name.
              https://cgit.freedesktop.org/~agd5f/...d-staging-4.11
              Maybe 4.15 will be the one.

                It will be such a blemish on AMD if users trying to put Linux on systems built with AMD APUs for the next six months to twelve months cannot do so because the GPU cannot work.

                I get why Vega can be held up - its a niche product. If you want to use Vega, the Pro driver works. But the Raven Ridge APUs are supposed to be huge for them, and would be the perfect domain of cheap Linux desktops or kiosks if the GPU actually worked on Linux! And you have no real alternative other than to use a discrete supported GPU if you want to get Raven Ridge until then. What a disaster.

                Any idea if the video outs are supported? IE the computer can at least render to the screen painfully slow with a software renderer without DC. If the actual chipset video outputs don't work that is just catastrophically bad.

                  There's also HDMI audio for SI cards in amdgpu with 4.13

                    It's not good at all, but it's not a disaster. There are third-party pre-compiled packages with that patch merged for most distros.
                    So it will be relatively annoying, but doable.
                    You'd do like it was done for other GPUs not supported yet in your distro of choice (Intel for example) or other graphics issues. You install linux on the drive while using another PC with supported hardware, add third party repos and configure things, and then power off and move the drive on the new system.
