What to wait for before attempting Navi on Linux?

#1

So, ehm, I might have pre-ordered a RX5700 for use with Linux.
My list so far of what I need is Linux 5.3 (or current master branch), Mesa later than like last Thurday, and libdrm 2.4.99.
What combination was tested? And do we know what would remain to get some useable support?

I know my way around Linux as a user, and it wouldn’t be my first kernel build… but i’m a bit lost at adding a new libdrm to building mesa.

The answer, courtesy of Phoronix, is to install the pre-packaged drivers and wait for ~September.
I had exactly zero issues in doing this :slight_smile:
