Re: Black screen after AMD drivers' update

Post by WharfRat » Tue Apr 10, 2018 10:17 am

Having this repo complicates matters further as it's possibly supplying the direct rendering and glx drivers.

Active apt sources in file: /etc/apt/sources.list.d/xorg-edgers-ppa-xenial.list

I don't know the reason why you added this repo, but any drivers not installed from the official repos can cause serious problems.

Can you paste back the url from dpkg -l|egrep 'mesa|drm'|awk '{print $2}'|xargs apt-cache policy | nc termbin.com 9999

It's hard for me to know what is official and what not. That may be the problem, sorry... Here is what you asked for:

Code: Select all

daniel-GA-MA78GM-US2H daniel # dpkg -l|egrep 'mesa|drm'|awk '{print $2}'|xargs apt-cache policy | nc termbin.com 9999
http://termbin.com/v8qn
EDIT: I restored the default settings for official repositories and disabled /etc/apt/sources.list.d/xorg-edgers-ppa-xenial.list. I hope that helps a little bit.

Yea, you got a whole bunch of packages from that repo

Since you disabled the repo if you want to try having them replaced with the official packages run:

dpkg -l|egrep 'mesa|drm'|awk '{print $2}'|xargs sudo apt-get install --reinstall

Then you'll have to remove the kernel parameter nomodeset for direct rendering to take effect and reboot.

Hope this works for you :wink:

It seems that it automatically aborts the download for some reason:

Try sudo apt-get update first then try dpkg -l|egrep 'mesa|drm'|awk '{print $2}'|xargs sudo apt-get install --reinstall again

gksudo xed /boot/grub//grub.cfg& and remove the nomodeset from the linux line.

Don't do it unless you get the above packages downloaded and installed.

It load some things, but it didn't give me any data except for this:

That's from Steam. Should I erase it?

Don't erase anything yet,

It doesn't apparently:

Code: Select all

daniel-GA-MA78GM-US2H daniel # apt-get download libgl1-mesa-dri
E: Can't find a source to download version '18.0.0~git20180214+18.0.1e173463-0ubuntu0ricotz~16.04.1' of 'libgl1-mesa-dri:amd64'
I'll try to see if I found something about this.

EDIT: This was on the Update Manager:
http://ibb.co/jPM6Gn The blue "Do you want to switch to local mirror advice?"
http://ibb.co/nFVYwn & the default mirrors I'm using.
Is this affecting something?

I don't see anything wrong with the official repos - I'm using the same ones.
Try refreshing the local files

Code: Select all

sudo mv -v /var/lib/apt/lists /var/lib/apt/lists.old
sudo mkdir -vp /var/lib/apt/lists/partial
sudo apt-get update
Then try to apt-get download libgl1-mesa-dri

Re: Black screen after AMD drivers' update

Post by WharfRat » Thu Apr 12, 2018 1:46 pm

This is getting to the point of bizarre :?

Answer yes to the update manager's request to switch mirrors - since I'm at a loss at this point.

Can you sudo apt-get install debsums :?:

If so run debsums -av apt

If there's nothing returned then that's good.
