I installed Ubuntu 18.04 to try out new features of it. Immediately I installed
ubuntu-restricted-extras and updated the system after installation because I didn’t connect my laptop to the Internet for some reason.
However, I forgot to backup my
.conf file of AMDGPU, which I used earlier with 16.04 install to eliminate the screen tearing issue.
Using modified configuration from this blog doesn’t help me, as it throws me to
tty screen or simply hung up the laptop and not accepting any input, which forces me to do REISUB.
Here is the configuration I tried:
Section "Device" Identifier "AMD" Driver "amdgpu" Option "DRI" "3" Option "TearFree" "true" EndSection
Laptop used is HP Notebook – 15-ba077cl. Dump of
lspci -nnk | grep -A3 VGA:
00:01.0 VGA compatible controller : Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Carrizo [1002:9874] (rev c9) Subsystem: Hewlett-Packard Company Carrizo [103c:81f9] Kernel driver in use: amdgpu Kernel modules: amdgpu
inxi -F is at this link: https://pastebin.com/raw/94izdgFg
Update: I tried using packages from
ppa:paulo-miguel-dias/mesa but the screen tearing still there.
How do I eliminate the screen tearing issue, then?
