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

thanks a lot for this package! My Ryzen 3400g works perfectly. I would like to upgrade to kernel 5.5 later, can I use your linux-amd kernel? are all patches included?

Ah yes, pinctrl_amd enables the problematic touchpad driver on some laptops (and admittedly also on my laptop, if you watch the git logs you could see that I spend some time searching for it ...) Problematic indeed, since it messes with some timings in order to "wake and allocate" the synaptics device at the right time. Sometimes the system needs a reboot if the timings were off by just a millisecond. Though I'd prefer to keep this driver since it still is a needed module for many AMD-only laptops, and thats also the point of this kernel ...

@librewish This kernel simply "cherry" picks (best effort, really..) all the right amd (Zenv1 and Vega) modules, but no special modules are really added.. (apart from the gentoo zenver1 optimisations git patch, but thats not about amdgpu..)

Maybe blocking out intel and nvidia modules can prove to provide a more "clean" environment? But that might just be wishful thinking on my part..

So Im afraid the best answer I can give you this kernel is made with more... love? <3

what is the exact config which enables amdgpu to behave correctly? i cant seem to figure out what is different with this kernel

@yochananmarqos there is none. I have seen numerous times where the gpg signature would be corrupted on random clients and they would be unable to update, I consider it wasted effort on both sides.

If you want to be really sure of the authenticity of this kernel you can always through the code (why take my word for it?) and compile it yourself via aur. I don't see how a gpg signature could change that since you shouldn't trust me just as much as the package.

@eggz: What's the GPG signature for the repo?

thank you with this there is no glitches and freezes on ryzen 5 3400g.

Hello,

I have an AMD Ryzen 7 2700U Pro (with Vega 10) CPU in my laptop (Thinkpad A485). Unfortunately my machine doesn't wake up after suspend with the latest kernel. The last kernel that I have tested that didn't had that problem was 5.0.5 with this configuration. Can someone point me into a direction on how to fix this?

My command line is as follows if relevant: loglevel=3 rd.udev.log-priority=3 vt.global_cursor_default=0 amdgpu.gpu_recovery=1 idle=nomwait

Thanks!

OK, I found the fix on https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=247711 for users with the Realtek RTL8822BE device:

-blacklist the broken new rt module:

/etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf: blacklist rtw88 blacklist rtwpci

-force the load of the old driver: /etc/modules-load.d/wifi.conf: rtl8822be

-install rtlwifi_new-extended-dkms from AUR (with your favorite AUR helper) pikaur -S rtlwifi_new-extended-dkms

optional: reinstall the kernel with the headers or just mkinitcpio -P

I hope this helps some people find the way to the bbs link for the fix.
