This is one of the reasons I reinstalled. I couldn’t figure out why my GPU acceleration had been turned off.
It was working yesterday and this morning. I got home from work and my computer was locked up and I restarted it. I watched a video earlier this evening and didn’t notice but it was basically a slide show.
Now I was playing a video with motion and it was obvious.
I see these lines in the dmesg
2.178594] [drm] radeon: irq initialized. 2.343326] [drm:r600_ring_test [radeon]] *ERROR* radeon: ring 0 test failed (scratch(0x8504)=0xCAFEDEAD) 2.343328] radeon 0000:02:00.0: disabling GPU acceleration
I did some googling and it seems I need radeon r600 microcode, but I see where is Loading CEDAR Nicrocode.
Do I need to post my dmesg and Xorg.log?
