    Default Problem with the radeon driver after a zypper dup

    Looking at your initial post it seems that "" segfaults.

    You've confirmed it's a video driver problem.

    Perhaps best to edit the thread title to reflect the problem is with the radeon driver after a zypper dup, then others more familiar with your hardware may reply.
    OK! Thanks for your help so far.

    The driver is quite recently updated. I dont know how long time it usually takes from compilation to distribution in an updated package. Its possible that it was included in the update I did last week.

    Your Bonaire GPU almost certainly should be using amdgpu, not radeon, at least, not for X, but possibly also for kernel. Use zypper or yast to remove xf86-video-ati and kernel-firmware-radeon, and ensure xf86-video-amdgpu and kernel-firmware-amdgpu are installed, then restart. Hopefully this will be all you need to do. Possibly adding radeon.si_support=0 to kernel cmdline would help. If none of this is enough, paste here output from:
    lsmod | grep video
    and upload /var/log/Xorg.0.log and output from
    sudo journalctl -b
    for us to see, on or preferably. The command susepaste will do the uploads for you, if it's been fixed.
    sudo zypper al xf86-video-ati
    might be required to prevent the radeon DDX from being reinstalled during updates.

    Thumbs up Re: Sddm/Plamsa/X-failure after dist-upgrade


    I just removed the xf86-video-ati and then everything went back to normal. kernel-firmware-radeon was not installed and xf86-video-amdgu was already installed.

    I guess the update I did last week accidentally installed the ati-driver and caused the error. Now its locked out and hopefully will the system continue to run smoothly .

    Another big thanks to you all that helped me to solve this one.
