Dual Monitors Not Working


I have recently built myself a new desktop machine. I put an AMD Ryzen 3 3200G (with Radeon Vega 8 graphics) on an Asrock B450M-HDV R4.0 motherboard. Everything I read before the build led me to believe that this combination should be able to provide HDMI, DVI, and VGA outputs concurrently. Each output works fine individually, but I can't seem to get more than one output to work at a time. When I check xrandr, no matter what I've tried, it only shows one output. I'm running MX Linux on that machine, in case that makes a difference.

I have tried copying, independently, 10-amdgpu.conf and 10-radeon.conf from /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/ to /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/, but neither of them worked. Both times I got only a blank screen with a flashing cursor in the upper left corner, instead of starting the GUI. I did check the output of inxi -G, and found that the amdgpu driver showed as "unloaded" when I tried to use it, but the radeon driver did not. The generated /etc/X11/xorg.conf was quite generic, and only called for the vesa driver. I tried substituting amdgpu and radeon there, but with the same disappointing results. I even tried to put together my own xorg.conf, with the monitor specs and such, but that didn't work either. I wasn't 100% certain of what I was doing with that, however. I tried to follow the examples I could find, but I kept feeling that there was something I just wasn't getting.

The output of uname -r is:

Have you tried arandr? I have zero knowledge of these things but arandr always did the trick for me like magic. Run, enable screens, position them, save, done.

Have you tried with no /etc/X11/xorg.conf and no non-default files in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/? Automagic X configuration works with most hardware and should for yours too. Do you have the FOSS amdgpu X driver installed? Upstream's name for it is xf86-video-amdgpu, while what you don't want used for AMD so new is the radeon DDX. What DDX is in use according to /var/log/Xorg.?.log(s)? What does
Code:
inxi -GxxSza
report run from any Xterm or equivalent terminal emulator? Are you booting without KMS disabled?

I've never used arandr, but I believe that it's only a visual frontend for xrandr, which I have been using. The problem I'm having is that there simply isn't anything, beyond the one monitor at a time, being detected for xrandr to work with. Thanx anyway.

I hadn't tried it without any of the xorg.conf files (including those in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d), but I have done it since. Things did change, but it didn't fix the problem.

I have, and have tried to get the system to use, /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/amdgpu_drv.so, which I believe is the correct driver. For some reason, when I put 10-amdgpu.conf into /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d, inxi -G showed that the amdgpu driver had been unloaded. I don't understand why that would happen, but it did. That driver wasn't even mentioned otherwise.

I couldn't find "DDX" anywhere in /var/log/Xorg.0.log.

As far as booting without KMS disabled, a little quick googling makes me think you're talking about kernel mode setting. I honestly don't know how to go about finding that information, much less changing it if necessary.

DDX is not a term anyone will find in a log. The middle D means driver. DDX is a way to distinguish a named "driver" used in X, such as radeon, intel, nouveau, and for your GPU, amdgpu, from kernel modesetting drivers, some of which are named the same, e.g. radeon, nouveau and amdgpu. DDXes depend on kernel modesetting functionality.

/usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/amdgpu_drv.so, provided by xserver-xorg-video-amdgpu (upstream: xf86-video-amdgpu), is indeed the DDX your GPU wants. Inxi is reporting the DDX provided by xserver-xorg-video-ati (upstream: xf86-video-ati), /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/ati_drv.so is the active X driver. Consequently, Xorg.0.log would be expected to have many lines that include the string RADEON(0) (which may be in lower case). Purging your system of xserver-xorg-video-ati should be sufficient to cause use of the amdgpu DDX, which should show up in Xorg.0.log as AMDGPU(0) instead of RADEON(0).

Inxi is puzzlingly also reporting use of the generic, limited functionality, non-accelerated, framebuffer driver, which in the log would show up as endlessly repeated FBDEV(0). That you definitely do not want to see. The only driver you want to see immediately following "Display: x11 server: X.Org 1.19.2 driver:" in inxi output is amdgpu. All others should follow "unloaded: " A possible exception would be the multi-GPU modesetting DDX (upstream's default, provided by xserver-xorg-core), which should support your display's native mode, and produce respectable performance, but not as good as the amdgpu DDX.

Inxi shows that KMS is not being disabled. If it was, its parameters line would include nomodeset or amdgpu*=0.

Are firmware-linux-free and firmware-amd-graphics installed? If not, either could be the reason /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/amdgpu_drv.so is not the DDX already being used. libdrm-amdgpu1 is also a requirement.

Have you ensured that you're using all the bells and whistles for your GPU? I had to install extra firmware to enable an external monitor for my AMD GPU.

$ glxinfo | grep -i direct

Make sure DRI = yes, or you're definitely NOT using your GPU to it's abilities. It would probably help if you output the output from xrandr. I would suspect some sort of EDID quirk. Especially if you're using something like a DVI to HDMI adapter.

I found firmware-amd-graphics listed in /var/log/dpkg.log.1, but not firmware-linux-free. Firmware-linux-nonfree was listed, if that makes a difference.

I renamed /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/ati_drv.so so that it wouldn't be used, edited /etc/X11/xorg.conf to use amdgpu instead of vesa, and was disappointed (but not surprised) to end up with a blank screen. The /var/log/Xorg.0.log file this attempt generated reads:

VESA is a low-performace, limited function, fallback driver. Making it impossible to use won't help make an appropriate driver work.

X.Org X Server 1.19.2 Release Date: 2017-03-02
This is older than your GPU, so may be your obstacle. 1.19.0, and drivers compiled for it, was released 15 November 2016. 1.20.0 was released 10 May 2018.

Quote:
Using config file: "/etc/X11/xorg.conf"
This file is rarely needed with current and recent X versions and kernels. It's often an obstacle to desired functionality.

Quote:
AMDGPU(0): [KMS] drm report modesetting isn't supported.
Without KMS functionality, no amdgpu will work.

Amdgpu, as Intel and Nouveau and ATI, depends on kernel modesetting.

It's generally tough or impossible going with new hardware and software older than the hardware.

okay, i am having the same issues. i just built a new computer...

this same set up (monitor wise) worked on my old computer which had fedora 30 on a nvidia geforce 660 ti. so it has to be with the amd driver right?

Unless using the exact same OS, motherboard and GPU/APU, you really should start your own thread instead of hijacking another's.

For hardware as new as yours it absolutely needs to read amdgpu instead of ati,vesa. Since the official release of Navi was subsequent to the release of Fedora 30, I wouldn't expect that to be possible. You're probably going to do a lot better by installing Fedora 31 beta, which is targeted for release before the end of this month. With the beta you'll be able to automatically have the final release through the normal updates process when the release becomes official.

"from" won't do. Most of what's important is missing from what you pasted. Upload the whole file to a pastebin and paste in your new thread the URL to where you pasted if you are interested in acquiring useful help.
