Problems with a Radeon RX560

Post by jcpollman » Sat Dec 07, 2019 11:24 am

I have tried to install GhostBSD with a Radeon RX560 card - no luck. I have tried using the amdgpu, drm_radeonkms, and radeonkms choices during the install, and none of them work - framebuffer issue. The same card works fine for Windows and Ubuntu. I can install, but with vesa, which leaves me at 1024x768 which is not optimal. The computer has a amd 7 2700 cpu and boots uefi.

I have installed GhostBSD in a virtualbox in Ubuntu and had no problems - I understand this uses a very different video driver.

any thoughts?

You could try scfb driver if you are running on UEFI motherboard.

After install, can you use the amdgpu driver?
I have an R9-270 and I have to use scfb during install, but after installing the amdgpu driver works very well.
Are you familiar with BSD?
