I have recently upgraded my GPU to an RX 6700 XT, and I am unable to start xorg. What it comes down to is that the graphics card simply isn’t supported by the current version of the amdgpu driver. I have opened a an issue on github here
Any support is appreciated!
AMD support is largely coupled to the linux kernel version.
For you, you probably will want the following in your
boot.kernelPackages = pkgs.linuxPackages_5_10;
I had to do something similar for my new all-AMD laptop.
EDIT: just saw the related post, and you’re using
5.11 already. So my above steps probably won’t fix anything.
Also, very jealous that you were able to acquire a 6000 series GPU
Thank you for writing this down! I just ran into the same problem and this helped me immensely.
I just want to add the following for future passers-by who run into the same problem: I didn’t get this to work using the
5.10 kernel. I had to bring in
boot.kernelPackages = pkgs.linuxPackages_5_11;
Other than that one setting,
21.05 seems to set all the right settings for my card to work. I’m running sway on it without issue.
Thank you both!
