I am using Manjaro KDE edition. I have a system with Skylake i5 processor and hybrid graphics.
System: Host: aditya-laptop Kernel: 4.4.8-1-MANJARO x86_64 (64 bit gcc: 5.3.0) Desktop: KDE Plasma 5.6.3 (Qt 5.6.0) Distro: Manjaro Linux Machine: System: HP product: HP Notebook v: Type1ProductConfigId Mobo: HP model: 8136 v: 31.36 Bios: Insyde v: F.1F date: 01/18/2016 CPU: Dual core Intel Core i5-6200U (-HT-MCP-) cache: 3072 KB flags: (lm nx sse sse2 sse3 sse4_1 sse4_2 ssse3 vmx) bmips: 9603 clock speeds: max: 2800 MHz 1: 699 MHz 2: 2694 MHz 3: 750 MHz 4: 750 MHz Graphics: Card-1: Intel Skylake Integrated Graphics bus-ID: 00:02.0 Card-2: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD/ATI] Sun XT [Radeon HD 8670A/8670M/8690M / R5 M330] bus-ID: 01:00.0 Display Server: X.Org 1.17.4 drivers: ati,radeon,intel Resolution: firstname.lastname@example.org GLX Renderer: Mesa DRI Intel HD Graphics 520 (Skylake GT2) GLX Version: 3.0 Mesa 11.2.1 Direct Rendering: Yes
With an earlier version of kernel 4.4 as well as drivers, PRIME offloading worked properly with the commands
xrandr --setprovideroffloadsink radeon Intel
However now after updating the kernel and xf86 drivers, it does not work.
$ xrandr --listproviders Providers: number : 2 Provider 0: id: 0x66 cap: 0xb, Source Output, Sink Output, Sink Offload crtcs: 4 outputs: 3 associated providers: 0 name:Intel Provider 1: id: 0x3f cap: 0x0 crtcs: 0 outputs: 0 associated providers: 0 name:HAINAN @ pci:0000:01:00.0 $ xrandr --setprovideroffloadsink 0x3f 0x66 X Error of failed request: BadValue (integer parameter out of range for operation) Major opcode of failed request: 140 (RANDR) Minor opcode of failed request: 34 (RRSetProviderOffloadSink) Value in failed request: 0x3f Serial number of failed request: 16 Current serial number in output stream: 17
I don't know where exactly the problem is as many packages got updated, which includes the kernel as well as
xf86-video-ati packages. I have also installed the linux4.6 kernel but I get the same problem on that too.
