I’m using a Notebook with a AMD Ryzen 7 6800U with Radeon Graphics CPU.
As Dockingstation I use a Dell WD19 and I have two external Displays + the Notebook screen active.
Everything works fine for the whole day.
I only got one problem and I think it’s a GPU problem.
When I play a game of chess on chess[dot]com the dock seems to randomly loose the connection and the Linux never recovers from that. I have to hard reset the Notebook then.
journalctl gives me the following output.
[drm:amdgpu_job_timedout [amdgpu]] *ERROR* ring sdma0 timeout, signaled seq=87152, emitted seq=87154
[drm:amdgpu_job_timedout [amdgpu]] *ERROR* Process information: process pid 0 thread pid 0
[drm:check_syncd_pipes_for_disabled_master_pipe [amdgpu]] *ERROR* DC: Failure: pipe_idx syncd with disabled master pipe_idx
Can anybode help me?

Yeah, I see here that you are not alone with this issue: [amdgpu]] *ERROR* ring sdma0 timeout (#2220) · Issues · drm / amd · GitLab
Looks like it has something to do with WebGL and VAAPI in conjunction with some specific AMD iGPUs, when using a Browser.
Maybe try a stress test: WebGL Stress Test and see if you can reproduce this timeout.
You can disable it in Firefox at
That is a downgrade for sure, but maybe it helps as a temporary workaround.
It was reported that you can switch the TTY like CTRL + ALT + F1 - F7 and switch back to the graphical TTY. Then it works again.
I am not quite sure what the problem is, but for sure, it is a driver bug.
Maybe try another LTS kernel and see if it more stable there, since the amdgpu module is baked into the kernel.
I googled and searched the web for like ages and didn’t find this error.
Disabling WebGL and VAAPI in FireFox is exactle the fix I needed.
Everything runs fine now (dispite missing some anymations but it’s ok)
Thank you so much!
Next time I will use proper formating!
