@adcdam

Following along the lines of Chiltoo's suggestion, you would probably want to test a Git (9999) build of media-libs/mesa, with the env override:

Code: Select all

EGIT_OVERRIDE_REPO_MESA_MESA=https://github.com/daniel-schuermann/mesa.git
which can go in something like (the following file):

Code: Select all

/etc/portage/env/media-libs/mesa:9999

EGIT_OVERRIDE_REPO_MESA_MESA=https://github.com/daniel-schuermann/mesa.git[
to automate the process. (Obviously you can use different Gentoo env override layouts.)

Let me know if that works! 8)

I'd love to try it out the aco shader compiler; but my 570 card is lying idle...
Waiting for a replacement motherboard, RAM, and CPU! :cry:

Hi Bob thank you really a lot!!!
i was able to install it with your explanation it give me a bit more frames,
https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-p-8 ... ml#8351700
if you want i can write in the post that you helped me, but i wasnt sure if you want that, perhaps some more people will start asking you questions, i really would like to contact you you have a lot of knowledge!!!!.
you also teach me how to patch Wine in Gentoo.
i forgot i tested in a rx580 8gb, what i can say is that is a much better card under Linux that my previous gtx1060 3gb (i know the rtx280ti is the best card, but at what price) , i really like what open source drivers can do.
Amdgpu and mesa work really well and also tested some games with gallium 9, Games with directx9 with the nvidia run worse than the rx with gallium, also i use sometimes wayland (sway).
i really would like to see what the new Rx5700 and Rx5700 xt can do with mature drivers.

@adcdam

No worries. But that's a pretty trivial piece of Gentoo foo. 8)

I have certainly seen and appreciate the amount of work AMD, and Valve, are putting into Mesa these days...
Hence my recent purchase of an RX 570 to test.
Sadly my ageing LGA1366 board died - a few days after I got this card...
So apart from a couple brief POST's - my AMD card hasn't seen any action yet! :roll: :cry:

I am still a bit concerned about hard system locks and constant driver regressions/fixes - which seem to plague AMD/Mesa (from perusing the DXVK Issue tracker). :shock:
I'm sort of used to a pretty stable system with Nvidia graphics (and evil proprietary drivers)...

Have you done any testing with D9VK at all and AMD graphics?
How does it compare to Gallium Nine (if you have test D9VK)?
