Thread: Odd laptop boot up behaviour using amdgpu-pro

    Default Odd laptop boot up behaviour using amdgpu-pro

    Hi, this is really a minor problem, or could it have a serious underlying cause?

    I recently had to install amdgpu-pro drivers on my laptop to solve my problem with HDMI audio transfer I asked in this thread: https://forums.opensuse.org/showthre...t-through-HDMI

    After the installation everything works fine except during the boot up instead of the normal loading OpenSuse screen I would get something like:
    https://ibb.co/yd52mfX
    https://ibb.co/4FTh8hX
    Why it happened? Could it be a serious issue with the driver misconfiguration?

    Hi
    No issues here with OSS amdgpu with GNOME DE and HDMI sound output (5.1, 7.1 etc) (on Tumbleweed 5.2.14 kernel - HP 15" Pavilion Notebook and SLED 15 SP1 4.12.14 kernel - HP 14" NotebooK), I would surmise that's since you installed the driver it's played around with plymouth... I normally remove all the plymouth stuff and rebuild initrd.

    Installing the driver was my last resort, at least it made the things work. I don't get why my PC didn't work without it either.

    I wonder why the driver influenced plymouth.

    Any followup or manuals on how to handle plymouth?

    Hi
    As root user try running;

    Code:
    mkinitrd

    Hi
    So did the startup screen change, or still the same? Not sure if your even using the amdgpu-pro driver.....

    Can you post the output from;
    Code:
    /sbin/modinfo amdgpu |grep filename:

    1. Name your hardware.
    If you ask for help then provide needed info.

    This code can help:
    Code:
    inxi -Cxxx
    2. Where did you get your driver?

    APU Carrizo - I take "6th Gen A10-8700P APU" for example from this list.
    There is no drivers for a openSUSE Leap.
    "Release Date: 18/12/2015" - too old for a Leap.

    Install Mesa drivers and end with it.

    Yes! Now it looks as it used to be, plus my grub has been cleared out of unnecessary entries. Thanks!

    Me neither. Yet I remember installing amdgpu-pro driver following the opensuse guidelines amdgpu-pro.

    I don't have inxi intalled on my computer and I couldn't download it today as opensuse repositories seem to be down for me all of the sudden. I'll try again tomorrow.

    I had to install the driver to make my HDMI sound output work. This was discussed in a separate thread. I got an advice there to install it: http://forums.opensuse.org/showthrea...81#post2907881

    Hi
    OK, good news then It looks like you are using the amdgpu-pro driver (since it's in the updates directory), hopefully all should be good now going forward.
