After upgrading to 20170204 snaposhot (I upgraded to 20170205 also
with no luck) X server is broken and segfaults making my system
unusable. Had to boot on runlevel 3 to be able to shoot a photo with
the error on Xorg.0.log.

Please advise, should I file a bug or is this a known issue? I can
provide any additional detail.

X tries to restart and makes impossible to login even on console
(everything is flashing). I booted with runlevel 3 to check the logs
and take the photo. As I can see, snapshot 20170204 had kernel 4.9.7
and one xf86-video-amdgpu package. Booting with 4.9.6 makes no

Photo of the error:

I'm not reverting packages yet in case we need to investigate more.

Which gfxchip (lspci -nnk | grep -A6 VGA)?

Does the segfault go away if you uninstall all AMD/ATI/Radeon drivers (thus triggering use of the modeset(0) driver integral to the server)?

You should post the entire Xorg.0.log, not a picture of a tiny portion of it.

I must say that after that upgrade the new video driver gives us a lot of troubles. I upgraded to 3 different PCs with totally different videocards, and I get huge flickers when moving windows or logging in, especially on the oldest one. But it is a generalized problem.
I hope they fix it soon. If anybody needs some tests done, just ask.
