Re: Ryzen 5700G - Xorg issues

I have installed FreeBSD 14 on the same machine and the experience is much different. Xorg on Conky constantly runs below 18. The GUI is not quite as laggy. I have posted on Pastebin Xorg.0.log, /etc/rc.conf, and kldstat. Here is the Pastebin link.

https://pastebin.com/BzQbMVSX kldstat

Maybe this can shed some light on the issue.

The following link explains my issue. Apparently, I am not the only one.

https://github.com/freebsd/drm-kmod/issues/118

I guess I'll have to wait until the issues are sorted out by the developers.

An update. I am running FreeBSD 14 Current on this machine and after updating /usr/src and compiling buildworld and buildkernel,
amdgpu.ko loads and now Xorg is behaving as I have seen in the past. Xorg wcpu values are usually below 1.00 and on boot, screen
resolution changes as I have observed in the past on other FreeBSD and GhostBSD versions. Now, I'll have to wait until those changes
are pulled into 13.1.

I forgot to mention that I also installed drm-devel-kmod-5.7.19.g20220223. This module required an updated kernel.

Does Xorg work if amdgpu is loaded? Or does it only work with vesa?

Neville, pardon the late reply. As I mentioned in the original post, amdgpu does get loaded. It does not appear to be used. I even have removed amdgpu from the kld_list in /etc/rc.conf and it makes no difference. All seems to be working in FreeBSD 14 Current. As I also pointed out in the original post, I was unable to figure out in GhostBSD whether vesa or scfb is running. The /var/log/Xorg.0.log is too long and I'm not sure what information to parse out.
