Amdgpu driver crashing regularly on Vega56

Hi everyone,

Whenever I play some games for a long time my graphic driver just kind of crashes.
The first symptom is, that the computer suddenly stutters and hangs. After that the screen becomes black and then shows this (sorry I it seems as if I am not allowed to post links or images):

Here is my inxi -Fzxxxi:

Where can I find more logs on this issue?
thank you!

EDIT: here is my journalclt -b -1 (atleast the last minute, before it crashed) and I was able to link the pic now


In general you can look up:

journalctl -b -0

or in follow mode:

journalctl -f

If it comes to the game log, it will depend if you run it in wine, proton or native.


thank you for linking the pic!

as for the journalctl - is there a place where I can put it? It is 4800 lines long.

The game in question is Albion Online and happens in all 3 installations (pacman, lutris, Steam), but is not the only game it is happening to.
I am running it most of the time with feral game mode in lutris, but it also happens without it.
EDIT: put a pastebin into main post

I really have no idea, but a guess that it might be a reset if the amdgpu while gaming.

Here is a possible bug report:

A possible workaround would be adding this:


to the kernel parameter in /etc/default/grub.

modinfo amdgpu

will display more information.

Just in case, have a manjaro install disk ready to boot and revert the changes.

thank you for this!

I changed this line in /etc/default/grub:
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet apparmor=1 security=apparmor udev.log_priority=3 amdgpu.gttsize=8192 amdgpu.lockup_timeout=1000 amdgpu.gpu_recovery=1 amdgpu.noretry=0 amdgpu.ppfeaturemask=0xfffd3fff iommu=pt amdgpu.deep_color=1"

I will report back in a few days, if I still get the issue.
