failed to set xfermode (err_mask=0x40) error

Updated opensuse leap 15.2

failed to set xfermode (err_mask=0x40) error

I have an AMD RX 580 with the latest amd gpu drivers

Anyone ?

Hi
Your running the standard Leap 15.2 kernel?

Your running the AMD proprietary driver?

If you press the esc key, do you see more information?

Does this system have SSD, HDD or other?

I have the latest kernel kernel (update)
Ssd drive

Ssd drive latest kernel
Amd 20.40 driver from and website.
Esc does nothing

Esc does nothing
SSD drive
Latest kernel
Amd 20.40 driver for sles 15.2 (advice technical support Amd)

Problem solved again the amdgpu driver failed after an update packages

Hi
The error your seeing is related to the disk drive, is the cable seated ok to the motherboard and SSD?

Oke thanks I see the error line but now the pc is booting to the gui desktop
Also windows 10 is working its a dual boot system never had any problems and the ssd ssd is brand new. Cannot see anything to the ssd cable

Hi
If you check the BIOS, any option for disk mode? I would also use smartctl just to check the SSD;


smartctl -a /dev/sda

Assuming it’s sda…

Oke thanks yes its sda

I have enable SMART HD in the bios mode is sata - ide
The seen no error line when starting.

smartctl -a /dev/sda

Hi
So just to clarify, SATA mode is IDE not AHCI? If so this is likely the issue…

Okay thanks i am afraid to change i ave also windows on my pc thought you had to reinstall

I am afraid to reinstall.

Hi
Yup, an unfortunate position, it will improve your performance for sure… windows is no issue, it’s free download, openSUSE is no issue it’s a free download too :wink:

Make a backup of all your important information?

IDE mode provides better compatibility with some older hardware. Like my music audio pci cards.
