Is anyone here using Blender 2.78a with kernel 4.8.13 (not Ubuntu, RHEL, SLES/SLED, and CentOS) and AMDGPU, without any graphics glitches, screen artefacts ?
Web browsers without (partially) black and distorted tooltips when hovering, and corrupted animation area when pressing F11 (full screen) and window resizing (with title bar buttons),
I'm on Arch Linux, currently with Deepin. But I also tried with KDE, Gnome, Budgie, XFCE (just to rule out DE issues) with the same bad result. These DEs were all fresh installs, on top of a fresh Arch installation, not all at the same time.
I have a RX 480 8GB and RX 480 4GB in one box. The 8GB card is meant for rendering with Blender.
In Windows 8.1 and Ubuntu 16.04 (w/ AMDGPU-PRO) these issues do not occur,
I'm terribly disappointed with this situation, because I spent €610.-- on the 2 cards and can't even use Blender.
There are still no generic AMDGPU-PRO Linux drivers. Just for Ubuntu, RHEL, SLES/SLED, and CentOS.
So I borrowed a GTX 1060 6GB to use Blender. And there were zero issues with Blender and web browsers for me with the NVidia card. The problem is that card would add another €295.--. Money I budgeted for a new PC build.
I'm left with 2 door stops "worth" €610.--.
