Hi all, good to be here learning quite a bit with linux but am stuck with patching linux kernels.
I am trying to switch to linux, but as a gamer it is difficult to make a full switch. I then heard about vfio and gave it a shot and got manjaro up and running with a windows vm. was making progress then I found out about amd vega reset bug the hard way :P. so I was wondering if that vega reset patch still works or has it not worked for awhile?
I tried patching in kbuntu with different kernels but the result is still the same. I get a glowing black screen when booting the new kernel. I tried editing the grub file with “nofb nomodeset”, etc but nothing works. I hosed the system and have to load a backup I made in clonezilla prior to fiddling around with stuff.
I downloaded the kernels src, copied current .config, pacthed with “patch -p1 < vega-fix.patch” and installed all the build tools. But still same result, black screen in kbuntu and manjaro.
any ideas? I will try again when I get home later and able to post logs.
