Radeon 6800XT Driver Issues Maybe?

Pretty certain this is not a Garuda issue as much as it's a Linux Kernel/AMD Driver issue but figured I might ask if anyone had any ideas here.

So simply put I have a AMD Ryzen 9 5900 and a Radeon 6800XT in my system.

Games and Vulkan/Mesa Drivers seem to work fine as I am able to play games with no issues thus far at least.

However hashcat doesn't recognize the GPU and also has issues with the cpu saying it's identified as Generic.

Figured I would ask here see if any ideas. Thanks and appreciate devs work on this as I am enjoying Garuda quite a bit.

Maybe kernel change got better results.

As said, possibly helps another kernel or even BIOS update if there should be newer.

Similar hardware I also wanted to put me but I should still wait :wink: until all drivers work.

It works well enough for a daily driver just can't use as a pen-testing platform yet, which is okay I suppose. Support will come eventually.

If I understand you correctly it is not loading the modesetting, and radeon drivers/device and an updated bios or kernel should resolve this when it becomes available?

Thanks for your response it's much appreciated.

So, what is this hashcat thing that make you think your GPU is not working as it should?

If you have a real issue, please, describe it.
Else, I don't find anything behaving wrong.

Compare your GPU performance characteristics with what is advertised.

Your response was extremely helpful in spurring me to give this a second look. I was able to install the opencl-amd package from the aur and hashcat is not functioning.

I appreciate you requesting further info as in my attempt to get further description I solved my own problem.

Loving Garuda!!
