    Phoronix: Linux 4.15-rc1 Kernel Released

    While when releasing Linux 4.14 Linus Torvalds mentioned 4.15-rc1 might be delayed due to his US holiday travels, Linux 4.15-rc1 has been released on time to conclude the two week merge window process...

    I am just testing this kernel:
    https://cgit.freedesktop.org/~agd5f/...drm-fixes-4.15

    With amdgpu.dc=1, now the display wakes up if I have shut it down. Without fixes the Benq GW2470 monitor did not receive signal. With amdgpu.dc=0 there was no problems. HDMI audio works too, my monitor has the headphone connector. Set hdmi audio output as default, use the aplay -l command and create ~/.asoundrc:
    pcm.!default{
    type hw
    card 0
    device 9
    }

    More likely it is that gnome is not compatible with Mesa. Or buggy configuration in the distro kernel. Use a custom kernel, Oibaf ppa Mesa dev and Xfce. My Ryzen 5 1600 & RX560 PC works rock solid, now for second day. I have played several hours Tomb Raider 2013 and Portal 2. Disable standby features from the kernel, turn you computer off when you are not using to make components last longer. A custom no debug kernel with ssd and Xfce boots ultra fast and shuts down immediately.

    Startup finished in 2.001s (kernel) + 907ms (userspace) = 2.909s
    No, setting gamma/color-temp is broken. Here is the patch which should fix it, but it hasn't made it into 4.15-rc1:

    I have a SI 7870 in a myth/steam box and with initial usage I haven't noticed any adverse side effects with running 4.15-rc1 with amdgpu.dc=1.

    Yeah, setting gamma/color-temperature is broken for me as well.

    I have to say, I'm a bit disappointed this (https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=103489) regression I reported a month ago, which causes my machine to lock-up 100% of the time when my 4k TV is enabled, made it into -rc1.

    So I just tried the spin from Ubuntus mainline repository, and DP audio from my Fury to my MG279Q is still not working unless I resample everything to 48khz.

    I do not care anymore, r8169 kernel driver works fine.
