Thanks you that you take the time answering all the question. I have almost no knowledge about low-level programming so most of the stuff you do here is completely out of my field of expertise and I suspect pinches of magic .
I read the thread again, but the first post is pretty much talking about Vega and that it needs a kernel patch, now you got me proper confused.
Additionally I wanted to ask about your time estimate for Navi. I understand that people getting impatient is annoying but I have until next Thursday to return my Navi and am slowly turning insane stopping all my work and rebooting my computer everytime I need Windows. If I see a light at the end of the tunnel I might keep it since I don’t want to spend my money on “no proper linux driver”-Nvidia.
