Xorg and Variable Refresh

Hey all,

Just curious what video-linux does under Garuda Settings Manager > Hardware Configuration.

I had to install manually xf86-video-amdgpu package to get Xorg to work with my Freesync monitor (and create a 20-amdgpu.conf file).

When I go to the hardware configuration and install video-linux, it says it fails. It also fails on my laptop with an AMD GPU.

Would doing this have been a better option to do? Is it broken for anyone else? And does it just add the xf86-video-amdgpu package I needed? Or are there specific tweaks that it also completes?

Any feedback appreciated.
