Amd Radeon RX 5600 XT

I have a new pc with AMD RADEON RX 5600 XT graphics card.
I installed Beowulf but don't support KMS (Kernel Mode Setting).
Should I install a new driver or Beowulf linux kernel is old for this graphics card?

Re: Amd Radeon RX 5600 XT

The 5600XT needs the kernel from beowulf-backports and the Navi firmware which can be obtained either from the ceres firmware-amd-graphics .deb package (don't add the repositories, they will break your system) or directly from https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/ke … .git/tree/ (place it under /lib/firmware/amdgpu/ and rebuild the initramfs).

I try copy files in /lib/firmware/amdgpu/ and rebuild the initramfs but doesn't work. "Ceres" support KMS for this graphics card. However I cannot install a unstable distro in my pc.

Re: Amd Radeon RX 5600 XT

Did you also upgrade the kernel? Here's the metapackage you need: https://pkginfo.devuan.org/stage/beowul … o10+1.html

For early KMS support add this line to /etc/initramfs-tools/modules:

amdgpu

Then rebuild the initramfs again:

# update-initramfs -u -k all

Thanks for the reply, but if I install this package in the system I risk of breaking the system?

No

Do not be afraid. This is a the manual way to do this and by the way Head_on_a_Stick is a very reliable person. And it will not in any case break something that is not allready broken ;-() But more likely fix it ;-))))))))

Have a nice day
