Improper graphics support/functionality with AMD GPU

Post by DMYT7 »

Hi there,

I'm fairly new to GhostBSD (and BSD in general), however I have had several years of experience with numerous Linux distributions.

I am attempting to boot the live image on my desktop computer, and it does successfully launch into a desktop environment, however there is a graphical issue. I have a single 4K monitor with a native resolution of 3840x2160, however the display resolution is set to 1024x768, and cannot be changed from the display settings. The display settings page also shows the refresh rate as being 0Hz (although my monitor itself reports 60Hz) (also note that my monitor is capable of outputting at up to 144Hz).
Image

I have an AMD Radeon RX 7900 XT graphics card, which I thought may be the issue as it is fairly new so may not be supported yet in BSD (only the newest Linux distros currently support it, for example). To test this, I tried instead booting/running off the integrated GPU (AMD Ryzen 9 7900X CPU) by switching the DP cable from the graphics card's port to the motherboard's port, however the exact same issue occurs.

When installing pciutils and running the lspci command, it shows that both the discrete GPU and the integrated GPU (codenamed Raphael) are detected.
Image

I wasn't really sure how to check which GPU the desktop is running on, however I knew the package/command neofetch gives system information (including about the GUI if it's running in a graphical terminal). So I ran it, and it reported that the integrated GPU was the one being used (regardless of which GPU the DP cable was plugged in to).
Image

Also, I tested booting the live image on a laptop which has an integrated Intel GPU and no discrete GPU, and it works perfectly on there.

If the issue can be fixed before I install, that would be great! Otherwise I'm happy to install it first and try any fixes after. Any possible help would be appreciated, and if I need to provide more information, I will do my best to.

Thanks.

The GPU is resent. It might not be wheel supported yet.

Welcome to GhostBSD!
Thanks for your feedback. I'm running GhostBSD with amdgpu on my laptop which is supported by FreeBSD 13 STABLE which GhostBSD is based on.
However my desktop is using an RX 6600 which is not yet supported.

Could you show the contents of your /var/log/Xorg.0.log file?
I think you're running on open source legacy graphics drivers (scfb) that's the problem. Your card is not supported on amdgpu yet. You may be able to get a better resolution by putting this in
/boot/loader.conf

hw.vga.textmode=1

If you want amdgpu to work on this card you need to run FreeBSD 14 CURRENT which has drm-515-kmod which should run your card.
GhostBSD will be based in FreeBSD 14 STABLE asap after FreeBSD 14 STABLE is released, which should be (hopefully) this month or next month.

I'm not entirely sure how to change the boot options for the live image. I know in other bootloaders like GRUB on Linux (for example), you can press E to edit the boot entry and add options like that to the kernel command-line, but I couldn't find an obvious way to do that on the GhostBSD bootloader.

If FreeBSD 13 doesn't support the GPU and FreeBSD 14 will, then I understand and will wait for the next GhostBSD release. I also tried the version "23.07.20", which I believe is the current development version, but it looks like that's still based on FreeBSD 13 for now.

I get the same result on my RX 590. GhostBSD does however work on my old R9 270 and an old HD 4200 era laptop. I can understand it not working on the RX 6xxx series or RX 7xxx series but the RX 5xx series is fairly old at this point so I was surprised.
