I recently changed my GPU, CPU, RAM and motherboard (GPU : GTX 1080 → RX 6800 XT, CPU: I7-8700K → Ryzen 7 5800X3D, RAM: 64GB DDR4)
The OS runs fine (it runs KDE), there’s no problem on that side. But since I changed my hardware, I’m having weird bugs with some applications (mostly games not starting). Some gives error message such as “A GPU supporting D3D_FEATURE_LEVEL_12_0) or higher is required.” while others just … don’t start silently. I’m not sure what could cause this and I’m thinking of simply reinstalling the entire OS. I wish there could be another way though, so I’m asking here.
The current version of XServer is 11.0. I’ve looked at “updating” it to 12.0, but found nothing. I guess it updates itself based on the hardware?
The main games that crash on startup are Elden Ring, The Last Of Us and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.
If anyone has an idea, please let me know!
Sounds like a driver issue maybe?
Can you share the output of a couple of commands:
pacman -Q | grep -E "(amd|radeon|mesa)"
Yes of course!
pacman -Q | grep -E "(amd|radeon|mesa)":
initrd=\23aa63a432e04de5ad64f4246403b053\6.4.10-arch1-1\initrd nvidia-drm.modeset=1 nvme_load=YES nowatchdog rw root=U

I’ve done the first 2 steps. I would like to have more information on the kernel options modification. I’m using systemd-boot
/etc/kernel/cmdline and remove that part. Save the file and then run
The vulkan shaders are processing, it looks good! I’ll update you when I have a definite result. Thanks a lot!
Ok, so the game started! It gave me an error that said the GPU driver was out of date, but it started anyway. Thanks alot for the help!
