I have a Dell Latitude 7424 with RX 540 MD. I have been trying to get the amdgpu drivers (currently version 20.30) to install and function, but no matter what I've tried, when the system boots, I can get to the log in screen, (usually), type in the password, then the computer hangs. I cannot get to any virtual terminals, etc... I have to reboot, blacklist amdgpu, and then uninstall.
I have tried different window managers, etc... to no avail. a few kernel options as well.
Currently, the only error I see in the Xorg logs is: modeset(G0): glamor: Failed to create GL or GLES2 contexts
and glamor initialization failed.
Any help would be appreciated.
EDIT: i had the wrong model of AMD card. I misread the number on it and didn't realize that the proprietary AMD drivers strangely don't support the 540. They only go back to the 550.
