Mesa 23.1.0-1 is causing issues for amd-gpu?


And i have already 3 users on telegram asking for help about something very similar looking…
so radeon driver looks like the effected one not amdgpu ?

sudo downgrade mesa lib32-mesa
but i would recommend to not add them to ignore list if it asks to do that!

should be a workaround and also possible if you already updated and see the issue on bootup… switch to TTY:
should give you a login prompt.


Strange, I’m not facing issues, perhaps something with X11? I’m on Wayland…

yes lets see the report is also still not confirmed…

but see:

its art… renoir ? and this is not a mobile GPU as it looks like…


just to add: already using 23.1 since rc2. 23.1.1 is scheduled for a release tonight. Let’s see, maybe a fix is already included.

Here also all good, desktop machine with RX 580, libva-mesa-driver 23.1.0-1 and mesa 23.1.0-1 are already installed.

Edit: I forgot to mention: KDE Plasma (just read that it made Gnome unusable).

No issues here on sway/wayland nor with i3/X11 with an AMD iGPU (680M).

Stupid question: How do I get back from the TTY to the GUI? With startx?


Usually press Ctrl + Alt + F7.

X is still nesting at TTY7 in most cases in some also on TTY1 or restart the DM will bring it back to:
sudo systemctl restart DM-name


I have no issue either with KDE using this version. Screen is crystal clear.

Edit: Seems to be Radeon ATI version graphics cards.

You have misunderstood me. I wrote that everything is fine with me and addendum: KDE is running here.

Does KDE trigger a protective reflex in you?

Confirmed here. Though it was Firefox because it would look garbled when I loaded it, but fine everywhere else, but when I rebooted everything was jacked up. Snapper to the rescue!

I have an A6 APU if anyone is wondering. mesa and amdvlk was updated,

No i understood you perfectly. I’m just saying that i have no issue with the latest mesa on KDE with Ryzen and i read the info about it. I think it was reported on older ATI graphics using Radeon.

Not having problems on my machine. I’m running a r6700xt card and Wayland

It seems to be only a problem for the older APU computers. At least that is what I am seeing in common. Mine still acted up when it was in X11 and Wayland. It finally got to the point that even the login screen was jacked up.

I’m on a old amd-gpu R9 M380 mac edition (mobile gpu) on a imac 27". I was planning to take a pic of my “art login” but it’s already here :slightly_smiling_face: So the update yesterday was not good for me.


Same screen error for me.
