Hello back, Jon, I am happy to tell you, that I have fixed the issue with the X-session crashing/making no video output.
Fix: edit the /etc/default/grub type “amdgpu.pcie_gen_cap=0x4” in the GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="" section. In my case there is a “loglevel=4” option in the quotes, you have to press space after the option and add the new option and so on with other options that you want to add. Save the file and execute “update-grub”.
I have also fixed the issue of Voidlinux setting the system and hardware clock by itself, with the command “hwclock --systohc”, UPDATE: but this only works if you don’t leave the computer powered of for a longer period of time, sadly. Before executing this command you have to set the wanted time.
What causes this issue is:
- booting into Void Linux (you see the false time)
- booting into the UEFI Shell to set the right time
- shutting the computer off
- booting to Alpine linux
- rebooting to VoidLinux
Workaround: xbps-install ntp
add “ntpd -qg; hwclock -wl” to .xinitrc
starting X with this option is about 5 seconds slower and the time is UTC. In my case the date is right, but time is 2 hours earlier.
slow, unreliable booting: unplug the drive that represents /dev/sda on the Operating System.
