Installation

See Category:Getting and installing Arch

Configuration

X

Make sure you enable the TearFree option in the xorg file configuration (i.e, /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-amdgpu.conf).

Section "Device"
	Identifier "AMD" 
	Driver "amdgpu"
	Option "TearFree" "true"
EndSection


Troubleshooting

Along with this section, check AMDGPU#Loading as well.

Boot

GRUB

Booting in blind mode error

Add the line

insmod all_video

in your grub.cfg

Screen freezes

The boot process normally gets stuck at certain point of the boot process and the cursor blinking stops. You can check if the caps lock LED still works. If that's the case, it means that only the amdgpu driver is gone. The rest of the system will be functional, meaning:

  • You can ssh to that machine
  • You can perform login and some debugging commands in blind mode, dumping their output into some files in the hard disk for posterior checks.

The solution is to disable Legacy Boot in the BIOS, so the UEFI mode will be the one used to boot. Tested with Secure Boot turned off
