OpenBSD: Talos II / Xorg / amdgpu Radeon RX 580
« on: September 01, 2022, 04:59:28 am »

I decided to make another test of OpenBSD using the nightly build from 29 August that I found here.

The system is Talos II, dual CPU, 128GB and AMD Radeon RX 580 8GB.  Is this GPU currently supported on OpenBSD ppc?

I looked at the instructions here in the FAQ for X setup

Code: [Select]
# rcctl enable xenodm
# rcctl start xenodm

# pkg_info

amdgpu-firmware-20220708 firmware binary images for amdgpu(4) driver


Looking at the log, the X server is failing to run

Code: [Select]
cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log

[    19.833] (--) no aperture driver access: only wsfb driver useable
[    20.049] (EE)
Fatal server error:

"/var/log/Xorg.0.log" for additional information.

OpenBSD is big-endian on POWER. amdgpu doesn't support big-endian, you need to use radeon driver, which doesn't support your GPU. If you want to use OpenBSD, you need a different GPU.
