Thread: Radeon Firmware Boot Error

    Unhappy Radeon Firmware Boot Error

    Hello,

    Ever since updating to LEAP 42.3, I've had an error on boot:

    Code:
    [    4.572122] [drm] radeon: dpm initialized
    [    4.572133] radeon 0000:01:00.0: Direct firmware load for radeon/TAHITI_uvd.bin failed with error -2
    [    4.572136] radeon 0000:01:00.0: radeon_uvd: Can't load firmware "radeon/TAHITI_uvd.bin"
    [    4.572137] radeon 0000:01:00.0: failed UVD (-2) init.
    [    4.572146] radeon 0000:01:00.0: Direct firmware load for radeon/TAHITI_vce.bin failed with error -2
    [    4.572148] radeon 0000:01:00.0: radeon_vce: Can't load firmware "radeon/TAHITI_vce.bin"
    [    4.572149] radeon 0000:01:00.0: failed VCE (-2) init.
    Is there any way to fix this? Maybe a replacement file for the firmware?

    Even after yesterday's kernel update, the error persists. This is using the built-in driver. Previously on 42.2 I was using fglrx but the new amdgpupro driver
    does not work at all on my machine. It causes my screen to flash some horizontal lines constantly. The graphics card is an Radeon R7 250.

    Thank you.
    - Itai

    Hi
    Is the kernel-firmware package installed?

    Yes. Version says 20170530-9.1 from vendor openSUSE. No other versions are available.

    Default AW: Radeon Firmware Boot Error

    here is my Firmware:
    http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...2.1.noarch.rpm

    But it is there:
    rpm -qlp http://download.opensuse.org/distrib...9.1.noarch.rpm | grep -i tahiti
    /lib/firmware/radeon/TAHITI_ce.bin
    /lib/firmware/radeon/TAHITI_mc.bin
    /lib/firmware/radeon/TAHITI_mc2.bin
    /lib/firmware/radeon/TAHITI_me.bin
    /lib/firmware/radeon/TAHITI_pfp.bin
    /lib/firmware/radeon/TAHITI_rlc.bin
    /lib/firmware/radeon/TAHITI_smc.bin
    /lib/firmware/radeon/TAHITI_uvd.bin
    /lib/firmware/radeon/TAHITI_vce.bin
    /lib/firmware/radeon/tahiti_ce.bin
    /lib/firmware/radeon/tahiti_k_smc.bin
    /lib/firmware/radeon/tahiti_mc.bin
    /lib/firmware/radeon/tahiti_me.bin
    /lib/firmware/radeon/tahiti_pfp.bin
    /lib/firmware/radeon/tahiti_rlc.bin
    /lib/firmware/radeon/tahiti_smc.bin
    So install kernel-firmware once more as root:
    Code:
    zypper in -f kernel-firmware

    Hi Sauerland,

    Thank you for having the package for me! Unfortunately, it did not change anything. My firmware files were
    exactly the same (did a binary diff).

    The error must not be in the firmware then but in the loading of it.

    Hi
    Is the package xf86-video-amdgpu installed? If so look at removing this so just have the xf86-video-radeon installed...

    Hi,

    Indeed it was installed. I removed it but the error is exactly the same.

    Also, maybe this can be of a hint, but I've always had the following error when not using the proprietary drivers:

    Code:
    [drm:si_dpm_set_power_state [radeon]] *ERROR* si_restrict_performance_levels_before_switch failed
    With LEAP 42.2, using fglrx removed this error. That is why I tried the amdgpu drivers first, which apparently I had left the package you mentioned.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks again!

    Hi
    Well it's a Southern Island card, which only (amdgpu support) appeared in the later kernel (eg it works for Tumbleweed). Hmmm is there a drm kmp installed, this has some kernel backports, wonder if that's causing a fight...

    Also if you run the following is radeon and amdgpu present?
    Code:
    /sbin/lspci -nnk | grep -A3 VGA
    You also removed the amdgpu-pro package, repository etc?

    Hi,

    Yes, I have drm-kmp-default installed. Version is 4.9.33_k4.79_4-5.2

    The lspci code returns the following, so I think the answer is yes:

    Code:
    01:00.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Cape Verde PRO [Radeon HD 7750/8740 / R7 250E] [1002:683f]
    	Subsystem: PC Partner Limited / Sapphire Technology Device [174b:a001]
    	Kernel driver in use: radeon
    	Kernel modules: radeon
    And, also yes, there is no more amdgpu package or repo. I have no idea what you mean by Southern Island.

    Thanks for taking a look!

    Hi
    Cape Verde (Engineering Name) is a Southern island card, which is GCN 1.0, so wonder if it's the drm kmp that's causing it to try and load the (amdgpu) firmware, you could try removing that and see what happens...
