[SOLVED] NUC8i7HVK (AMD Radeon RX Vega M GH)


#1

Hello,

sorry for my terrible english :s

i have a new NUC8i7HVK with the new Graphic-card AMD Radeon RX Vega M GH.

egle@NUC8i7HVK:~$ lspci | grep VGA 01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Polaris 22 [Radeon RX Vega M GH] (rev c0)

i have install Kubuntu 18.04 with these PPA from this threat:

https://askubuntu.com/questions/1040440/graphics-drivers-for-intel-nuc-hades-canyon-nuc8i7hvk-amd-radeon-rx-vega-gh

But i like Netrunner more, so i will used the Full graphics-support with Sound over HDMI
on my Netrunner 18.03.

egle@NUC8i7HVK:~$ 

Is there a PPA for Debian testing or so like these from Ubuntu?

or can i took the Ubuntu-PPA for Netrunner?

i wish kill Kubuntu from my harddrive if is possible :dodgy:

But at the moment it is Ubuntu the only Linux system I have found that really supports this graphic and it really works.


#2

The support is in the current experimental linux kernel aswell as mesa.
There is nothing in debian testing for this.


#3

Hello leszek,

ohh thanks for the information, so i will try it with the “experimental” feed, if this included :slight_smile:


#4

Hello leszek,

Thank you so much it is working :smiley:

I have install:

sudo apt -t experimental  install linux-image-4.18.0-rc4-amd64 linux-headers-4.18.0-rc4-amd64

then:

wget -m -np https://people.freedesktop.org/~agd5f/radeon_ucode/vegam/ sudo cp people.freedesktop.org/~agd5f/radeon_ucode/vegam/*.bin /lib/firmware/amdgpu sudo /usr/sbin/update-initramfs -u -k all

reboot and now it is gone, Grafics and sound over HDMI :smiley:

so one questions more…

it is possible to get automatic updates for the experimental Kernel 4.18,
or is it only by manual?

i think its a long time for Kernel 4.18 to go in the testing feed… :s

best regadrs EgLe

Not really easily possible. You could experiment with apt pinning and set it to prioritise the linux-image and linux-headers packages from experimental. Never tried that but in theory it should work.
