I have placed this kernel on the 5.4 kernel version with intend of staying there (since 5.4 is expected to be an LTS release)

If you have newer AMD (CPU!) hardware, I welcome you to use my aur/linux-amd package, but for raven ridge, this is the end of the line.

Tired of compiling? Use this binary repo instead! Add this at the end of /etc/pacman.conf :

[linuxkernels]
Server = http://nhameh.ovh/$repo/$arch
SigLevel = Optional TrustAll

@s3rj1k Good to know!

@eggz amdgpu.ppfeaturemask=0xfff93fff works for me, no 5 minute freezes

@s3rj1k

As I said, I rarely have issues, it only had a crash every week or 2 on one laptop. I can't help you debug with a infrequent error like that.

@eggz Can you please check on your laptop that has issues related to amdgpu drivers, does adding amdgpu.ppfeaturemask=0xfff93fff to kernel boot params help?

Masking PP_OVERDRIVE_MASK, PP_GFXOFF_MASK, PP_STUTTER_MODE, PP_AVFS_MASK -> 0xfff93fff

@eggz yep, can confirm that to actually mitigate this issue one would need to match kernel version with exact firmware version. (probably kernel patch revision also matters)

Still no silver bullet, for me :(

Hoping here that 5.14 will fix this all of that BS, as per https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=266358&p=3

@s3rj1k

If that's true that is a nice catch. I wouldn't have expected that. Let me know the results.

s3rj1k commented on 2021-07-13 16:55

so assuming this sudo pacman -U https://archive.archlinux.org/packages/l/linux-firmware/linux-firmware-20210315.3568f96-2-any.pkg.tar.zst in pair with older kernels (like 5.4, 5.10) should fix issue, going to test that

@eggz https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=266358&p=3 checkout this out, they pretty much confirm that issue is indeed caused by firmware, I am so angry right now, aggrrr

eggz commented on 2021-07-13 14:42

I understand, it is much appreciated. I might be low on time these days but not low on intrest. I didn't knew the firmware files of raven were updated, maybe to add more laptops and their oem implementations, very interesting. Thanks for pointing that out.

And yes you are right, bias is a factor here that clouds everything. Its very hard, if not impossible to find universal fixes by yourself.

s3rj1k commented on 2021-07-13 14:39

@eggz Just in case, I am not suggesting that you must do any research, I am only trying to disscuss possible options here, as seems that you have more then one raven based system.

I can only test on single laptop, so my tests are very biased.
