Gpu refuses to use AMDGPU driver

Hello,

I’m having trouble getting my R9 280x gpu to use the AMDGPU driver. I’ve seen other posts on this forum of how to set the kernel params to load the AMDGPU driver. I added “radeon.si_support=0 amdgpu.si_support=1 radeon.cik_support=0 amdgpu.cik_support=1 rd.driver.blacklist=radeon quiet” to my ect/default/grub and updated my grub. After a system restart, both of my monitors are mirrored and do not have the option to have two displays. The boot takes noticeably longer as well, I suspect the driver is failing to load causing the longer boot time?

The gpu section of the output of “lspci -kkn” after editing the grub is:
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Tahiti XT [Radeon HD 7970/8970 OEM / R9 280X] [1002:6798]
Subsystem: Hightech Information System Ltd. Tahiti XT [Radeon HD 7970/8970 OEM / R9 280X] [1787:3001]
Kernel modules: radeon, amdgpu

With the default grub the out put is:

01:00.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Tahiti XT [Radeon HD 7970/8970 OEM / R9 280X] [1002:6798]
Subsystem: Hightech Information System Ltd. Tahiti XT [Radeon HD 7970/8970 OEM / R9 280X] [1787:3001]
Kernel driver in use: radeon
Kernel modules: radeon, amdgpu

This is my first time dealing with drivers on linux, so apologies if I’m doing something completely wrong, thanks.

OS: Ubutntu 20.04
Kernel Version: 5.11.0-37
GPU: R9 280x

To which line exactly?

It needs to be added to GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT. Also normally you don’t need to blacklist the driver.

Check journalctl -b to see the current boot log and look for errors.

I added them to the GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT. I tried previously with just “radeon.si_support=0 amdgpu.si_support=1 radeon.cik_support=0 amdgpu.cik_support=1” and figured I’d try blacklisting out desperation.

I skimmed through journalctrl -b and these blocks seem to be relevant. I can post the whole output if you’d like:

I appreciate the help!

Looking at “Oct 03 13:47:17 desktop kernel: amdgpu 0000:01:00.0: amdgpu: amdgpu_uvd: Can’t load firmware “amdgpu/tahiti_uvd.bin”” from the journalctrl -b. I got the missing file from amdgpu - kernel/git/firmware/linux-firmware.git - Repository of firmware blobs for use with the Linux kernel

and put it in my /lib/firmware/amdgpu directory with the proper permissions. amdgpu now seems to be working, the output from lspci -knn lists amdgpu as the current driver and vulkaninfo list my gpu as gpu id 0, where it was previously lvvm.

I haven’t done any major testing yet but so far so good. Thanks for the help!

Could be a missing firmware issue; that was pretty common back in my R9 days…

Without reading the post above me I replied… oopps… there ya go.

There might also be a separate package that provides the firmware. A little odd that it’s not a dependency for the driver though.
Could also file a bugreport against the distro maintainers since this should install with the driver.

dependencies can be outdated under Linux, especially if you use ubuntu based distro for example.

Display drivers under Linux are a odd thing; needing to pull in lots of dependencies that can all be outdated and not usable with newer hardware, kind of one of the things windows does loads better unfortunately.

thanks for the awesome information.

If you load up a arch based distro and it just works… then you have your answer.
