[SOLVED] AMD Gpu recognized but not used

Post by Rapazinho »

Hello everyone!

Im new to linux and im having issue with GPU.
At first I had the (in)famous black screen crash at random times. I searched for solutions, but since this isnt my daily driver, i just gave up. Until today when a new kernel got updated and it seems that for at least these 4hrs of uptime the problem is solved.

But it created a new problem... videos are now choppie, moving windows around is laggy and so on.
it seems to me that the gpu is recognized but not used.

I tried glxgears and while its smooth at a small window size making it bigger makes it real laggy.
So i believe the GPU is not used.

Here are some outputs

Thanks for confirming that the gpu is being used.
Though Disabling all the effects didn't change anything and at the end of the day it is an R9 390. The card might be old but it is still powerful.

Besides before on Kernel 5.15.0-47 watching 4k videos wasn't a problem at all: no stuttering and no lag, even watching multiple 4k yt videos was ok. everything was smooth.
the problem (before) was that i would get the black screen after a while. mind that it wasn't a full on crash and the monitor was still getting the signal. but now, with the new kernel, it is like the card is working at its minimum.

at least I gotta say the pc is not blackin out and is now usable :)

Sorry, but you were given incorrect information. While the driver loaded, the renderer did not load, so the GPU is not being used and your system is running in software rendering mode.

OpenGL: renderer: llvmpipe (LLVM 13.0.1 256 bits) v: 4.5 Mesa 22.0.5
direct render: Yes

Do you have a Timeshift snapshot of your system before this issue happened? I suggest rolling back to it if just switching back to an older kernel does not work. If you need more directions for either, just let us know.

While your system is currently using the radeon driver (and not the amdgpu driver), I believe it is possible with kernel parameters for your system to use the amdgpu driver. I do not know if that will fix the renderer issue because the renderer should load in either case.

Graphics:
Device-1: AMD Hawaii PRO [Radeon R9 290/390] vendor: Micro-Star MSI
driver: radeon v: kernel pcie: speed: 5 GT/s lanes: 16 ports: active: DP-1
empty: DVI-D-1,DVI-D-2,HDMI-A-1 bus-ID: 01:00.0 chip-ID: 1002:67b1
class-ID: 0300
Display: x11 server: X.Org v: 1.21.1.3 driver: X: loaded: ati,radeon
unloaded: fbdev,modesetting,vesa gpu: radeon display-ID: :0 screens: 1

Someone else with Intel graphics posted that after an update their renderer did not load (when it had in the past). I do not know if there might be an underlying issue affecting both of you or this is just a coincidence.

If you want to try the amdgpu driver (instead of radeon), you would want to add the following four kernel parameters to grub. (Note: there is a space between each parameter.)

Code: Select all

radeon.si_support=0 amdgpu.si_support=1 radeon.cik_support=0 amdgpu.cik_support=1
You can use the following information How to add a kernel parameter to temporarily or permanently add the parameters. When you add them temporarily, they are added only for that current boot cycle, so if, for any reason, they seem to cause issues or they do not work, all you need to do is reboot to clear them.

If you need more details than that topic provides, just let us know.

Before adding the parameters I did roll back to -45 but it was the same as before.
so then i thought to do a fresh install and see whats up. starting with -41 it showed driver and gpu N/A.
then I let it update to -48. after this update the the video feed would crash aka black screen.
and lastly i went on to add the suggested parameters.

maybe i can download th amdgpu driver somewhere?
edit: maybe use amd's guide https://amdgpu-install.readthedocs.io/e ... amble.html

No. There is no driver for you to download because of the age of your system. Additionally, the drivers are in the kernel and should load automatically. If that is not happening, there is a different problem.

You're using zfs? I didn't notice that earlier. For what reason do you want to use zfs instead of ext4?

Please provide the output of

Code: Select all

journalctl -b | grep -i "drm\|amdgpu\|radeon\|01:00.0"
and enclose the results within code tags.

A better test would be to run a live session (using your install usb/dvd) and check and see if everything is installing properly.

I did because when the installer gave the option of zsf (or lvm) it was the only, at least to me known, way with which i could encrypt the disk ^^

A better test would be to run a live session (using your install usb/dvd)

I did because when the installer gave the option of zsf (or lvm) it was the only, at least to me known, way with which i could encrypt the disk ^^
So that's why I'm seeing more zfs installs. I believe in the past only lvm was used.

Looking at the messages, it appears you had a typo when you added the kernel parameters. Here are the parameters:

Code: Select all

radeon.si_support=0 amdgpu.si_support=1 radeon.cik_support=0 amdgpu.cik_support=1
Here is what you added:

Code: Select all

radeon.si_support=0 amdgpu.si_support=1 radeon.cik_support=0 amdgpu.sik_support=1
Easy enough to do when the line is long. Here is the error message because of that:

Code: Select all

Sep 28 18:31:50 k-desktop kernel: amdgpu: unknown parameter 'sik_support' ignored

Sep 28 18:31:50 k-desktop kernel: amdgpu 0000:01:00.0: amdgpu: CIK support provided by radeon.
Sep 28 18:31:50 k-desktop kernel: amdgpu 0000:01:00.0: amdgpu: Use radeon.cik_support=0 amdgpu.cik_support=1 to override.
Looks like you ignored my advice and downloaded files from the AMD website. You are making this more complicated by doing that.

Good to hear. :)

Please go to your first post in this topic, click the pencil icon, and add [SOLVED] to the beginning of the title so others know you are no longer seeking help on this issue.

If you run inxi -Gx, you should also see your system using the amdgpu driver instead of radeon. That may well give you better performance.
