    came to say that I'm having the same issue: system is not booting suspect that the update of the kernel-firmware-amdgpu package is the reason. (now installed version: 20210609-35.1)

    just in case it might help diagnosing/fixing the problem:

    I running Leap 15.2 but besides the stock kernel (5.3.18-lp152.78-default) I ran the latest kernel from OBS-Kernel (https://download.opensuse.org/reposi...table/standard ; version: kernel-default-5.12.12-2.1.g43254cf). Only the version 5.12.12-2... is affected by the boot crash.

    the info requested in another message in this thread (this info is when running the stock 5.3.18-lp152.78 kernel, since 5.12.12 does not boot):
    Code:
     # inxi --graphics --filter --admin

    [    0.360299] kernel: smpboot: CPU0: AMD Ryzen 7 PRO 4750U with Radeon Graphics (family: 0x17, model: 0x60, stepping: 0x1)
    the last message I see before the boot stops:
    Code:
    [2.528...] [drm] amdgpu kernel modesetting enabled
    [2.529...] amdgpu: Topology: Add CPU node
    [2.530...] fb0: switching to amdgpudrmfb from EFI VGA
    Hope there is a solution soon.


    <EDIT>: apparently the old version(s) of the kernel-firmware-amdgpu package are gone? Why would someone do that?

    Manged to solve my problem thanks to this other thread:
    https://forums.opensuse.org/showthre...pper-dup-today

    The steps:

    1. Install "old"/stable version of the firmware-amdgpu package (had version: 2021-06-09) with vendor-change.

    zypper in --oldpackage \
    https://download.opensuse.org/distri...2.4.noarch.rpm

    2. previous step rebuilds the initrd for the current kernel version, but I run the latest stable, so rebuild initrd for that as well:

    dracut --kver 5.12.12-2.g43254cf-default --force

    3. reboot, select the Grub option for 5.12.12

    4. optional: lock the kernel-firmware-amdgpu package to remind myself to check out 1 a year if this bug is solved ;-)

    zypper addlock kernel-firmware-amdgpu

    Thanks for this suggestion. I have done the same. However, since I plan to do an online upgrade to 15.3 I wonder about the wisdom of doing this.
