Gamers using Radeon + Mesa
Shmerl commented on 9 December 2018 at 7:48 pm UTC

bintsmokWhy is my system still on Vulkan 1.1.70 according to DXVK HUD? I already updated to Mesa 18.3.0 from Stable Padoka PPA.

Here is the related bug: https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=108578

Looks more like a review issue than actual feature support:

QuoteThis is not a bug. We should be able to bump the patch version but that requires to look at the changelog since 1.1.70.

If anyone is interested, I made a simple AMD GPU monitor for load and VRAM utilization: https://gitlab.com/snippets/1789143

Outdated Vulkan version reporting should be fixed in the latest Mesa master.

Guestamdgpusysfs.py
That is not debian.

I wanted something simple, without need to bother with Python or GUI. For more complex cases I'd use Rust.

A little late heads up if you use some recent AMD cards and debian testing. If you use the new kernel (4.19.0.1) at the moment, it expects new firmware from the blob 'firmware-amd-graphics' that is not yet updated, so you can experience screen freezes on boot:

I'm always trying to keep firmware up to date using upstream:
https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/firmware/linux-firmware.git/tree/amdgpu/

Debian testing / unstable is usually very delayed with updating it for amdgpu:
https://tracker.debian.org/pkg/firmware-nonfree

So copy it manually to /usr/lib/firmware/amdgpu/ and then simply run:

sudo update-initramfs -u

I also recommend avoiding 4.19.x kernels if you are using Vega, go straight to 4.20. But you'd need to build it for now, since Debian didn't package it yet.

Here is a good guide, it's actually quite easy:

thanks for the tips, but i'll just wait until the official repos are updated, i have have no issues with the 4.18 kernel.

That possibly would be a very long wait, if newer kernels won't make into repos before the freeze (which is already in the first phase).

Thanks again, i was totally oblivious to the freezes happening already.
