Unhappy


Sadly but startkwayland didn't work too. I've build kernel 6.4.10 as it was proposed but for the moment no luck with X's. Good that at least I have console available and can see what happens directly on the PC, not by SSH.

I think that this time the problem may be as described here:

I booted my backup kernel (6.2.5) and everything is fine so it seems to be the kernel.
So if I'll have time I'll try to build kernel from 6.2.x branch (since one of Ubuntu works for me too)

Edit: Kernel 6.2.16 didn't help to fix the issue. Only runlevel 3 console available.

Did you try swapping the 2 firmware files out? It looks like there's a significant regression in them that affects the 7600 booting.

Finally I've got everything working (apparently). There are no more error messages in dmesg log. The problem appears to be 100% firmware regression. I've replaced gc_11_0_* firmware in Slackware with those from my working Ubuntu. Then I've successfully started Slackware64-current system with KDE Plasma both with 6.2.16 and 6.4.10 kernels.

So the solution was - (updating kernel to something >6.2 (actually this was not necessary - LTS 6.1.46 works well) and using "correct" firmware.

Thanks all for your suggestions and time! Hope this will be also fixed upstream.

Edit: Maybe this was because of the issues addressed by these patches: https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux...7aecdb52b5ff5f
Will try to use the "reverted" firmware after Pat will publish new firmware package for current.

Upgraded firmware and installed kernel 6.1.46 - boot was successful. There are a couple of warnings related to amd in dmesg but looks like everything works.
So that was firmware-only issue and I've just installed the new video card (RX 7600) at the wrong time - in those very couple of days when we've had a broken firmware.

Code:

PS: Backed up current kernel and firmware packages just in case...

Linux 6.6 AMDGPU Driver To Expose Current & Average Power For Capable GPUs
By Michael Larabel. 21 August 2023.
On Friday AMD sent out another pull request of AMDGPU/AMDKFD driver changes for the upcoming Linux 6.6 merge window. With the Linux 6.5 release due out likely in one week and the cut-off having passed for new "feature" code for DRM-Next, this latest AMDGPU pull request was centered around bug-fixes but also with a few minor additions.............

So when trying to find a fix this weekend, the amdgpu people wanted amdgpu_gem_info. Is this a kernel debugging thing, because I couldn't find where/what it was. (And I've never done actual kernel debugging/bisecting.)

I don't have an amd gpu, but try
Code:
mount -t debugfs none /sys/kernel/debug
and look for it under /sys/kernel/debug.

Cool, thanks! Didn't think of that. I didn't notice anything, but to be fair, I'm not sure where I should be looking.

Maybe
Code:
find /sys/kernel/debug -name amdgpu_gem_info

There it is! And it's in dri/0/, which makes the rest of their conversation make sense, when one person said their GPU was no longer dri/0, but dri/1. Thanks!
