Unable to boot using AMD graphics

Unable to boot the Enlightenment iso as I think I  need amd firmware to load before graphics driver?

I have a tower (desk case) that runs AMD CPU known as an APU which supplies the graphics. I have no onboard graphics nor a discrete graphics card.

I notice packages has no mention of amdgpu

Checking the firmware aspect we have

this appears to be distributable and "should be" but unable to verify ---included with linux-firmware which is already in packages.

2) packages shows we have linux-firmware and xorg-xf86-video-amdgpu which should work but all I see is garbled graphics on bootup.

Any clues what to try?

3) the graphics driver for amdgpu may be the issue?

but I am not a lawyer.....

this is what I have on another distro

thanks for reading

Hello  aus9

Welcome to NuTyX forums.

Thanks a lot for your effort. Appreciate.
You have a very interesting case to fix here, hope we manage.

May I ask you to test following ISO:

It will be a basic NuTyX. Then you could check what's missing as firmware via the command:
--- Code: ---sudo dmesg
--- End code ---

As general info, under NuTyX all the kernel modules are compressed now, you can use the command:
--- Code: ---find /lib/modules -name amdgpu.ko*
--- End code ---
to find the amdgpu.ko.xz module

Good luck and thanks for trying NuTyX


as I was about to post....saw your reply but hope reply offers more hope

hmmm downloaded the openbox had better success.

I suggest you amend bootloader to show something like

Press TAB key to edit boot menu

2) Openbox changed to ....delete quiet,  edit vga=ask  (on start....I chose f for a fair font size on a 22 inch monitor)

I tried and failed to use nomodeset.

3) typing on it now.

--- End code ---

4) still some issues

--- Code: ---dmesg | grep amdgpu
[   27.279039] [drm] amdgpu kernel modesetting enabled.
[   27.454412] amdgpu: Topology: Add APU node [0x0:0x0]

[   27.681404] amdgpu: probe of 0000:26:00.0 failed with error -524
--- End code ---

firmware is there as expected

--- Code: ---ls /lib/firmware/amdgpu | grep pic
--- End code ---

I am not sure if I can post my full Xorg log?

Yes no issue, what's even beter is to use the command:

--- Code: ---cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log|paste-nutyx
--- End code ---

and put the link here.

thanks for quick reply

so the kernel module is loaded....but not quite working according to pinxi.

yet to study Xorg log
