I'm using amdgpu (obs compiled amdgpu kmp and later xf86-video-amdgpu) with a R5 Mullins card on a DELL Inspiron 5555 laptop and it runs great.
The amdgpu driver is installed already, but lsmod indicates that the radeon driver is loaded.
~> lsmod | grep radeon radeon 1601536 3 i2c_algo_bit 16384 1 radeon drm_kms_helper 155648 1 radeon ttm 106496 1 radeon drm 393216 13 ttm,drm_kms_helper,radeon
How would I switch this?
Hi Create 20-amdgpu.conf and 50-radeon.conf files containing;
Section "Device" Identifier "AMD Graphics Core Next GPU" Driver "amdgpu" Option "DRI" "3" Option "TearFree" "true" EndSection
cat /etc/modprobe.d/50-radeon.conf; blacklist radeon
If it doesn't work you may need the later xf86-video-amdgpu as well.
What is the engineering name of your card (lspci output)? If it's GCN 1.0 series, may need to wait until 4.10 kernel... https://www.x.org/wiki/RadeonFeature/
