mystro256 / amd-mainline-kernel

Description

This is an unofficial Fedora build of AMD's mainline kernel with all the security patches included in Fedora and upstream patches from kernel.org. Feel free to bug me if this gets out of date. (I.e. a new Fedora kernel is released)

This kernel tends to favour more stable, tested code. If you're looking for something more bleeding edge, check out this repo:

http://copr-fe.cloud.fedoraproject.org/coprs/mystro256/amd-staging-kernel

This kernel has the upstream code for amdgpu, freesync, DAL, audio over HDMI for the newer cards (e.g polaris), plus everything that has yet to make it into the upstream kernel. As well, this contains all of the extra bits that the hybrid AMDGPU-PRO's kernel contains, but would be effectively useless without at least AMD's libdrm fork. Note that I have not tinkered with this, and if you do so, please do so at your own risk.

This also includes experimental amdgpu support for Southern Island cards (SI/GCN 1.0) and Sea Island cards (CIK/GCN 1.1). Note that for all cards, installing xorg-x11-drv-amdgpu should be sufficient to enabling amdgpu, but you need to add amdgpu.si_support=1 radeon.si_support=0 or amdgpu.cik_support=1 radeon.cik_support=0 to your kernel parameters for SI or CIK cards respectfully. Note that SI cards are very experimental, and CIK still has some "quirks" to work out from what I see.

Please use at your own risk!
