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

Thank you!... after 3 days of troubleshooting terrible tearing when doing anything on any desktop (gnome, kde, xfce) I randomly came across a post this morning on a Manjaro forum referencing this package. I gave it a try and all my video issues went away. I have an AMD 3400G APU.

BTW all of the following kernel packages fail, only yours worked: Linux 5.5.3.arch1-1 Linux-lts 5.4.19-1 Linux-zen 5.5.3.zen1-1 Linux-amd 5.5.v.3-1

EDIT: Just tried your linux-amd 5.5 package and it appears to be working without issue. I must have tried the previous build, it looks like you just updated it yesterday.

Not sure what I'm going to do post this kernel?

@broken.pipe, Well normally it should still work, but guaranteeing the same quality would be impossible, I have seen newer kernels act really bad for older AMD GPU's in the past and thats the reason im splitting the package in a mainline and a LTS!

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.

yochananmarqos commented on 2019-11-27 03:05

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

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