output of the dmesg command
Login screen renders properly
Past login, the screen turns black, with the pointer visible and a blank pixel in the upper left corner.
On some occasion the pointer turns from the arrow to the vertical bar.
crtl+alt+F<whaterver> works and brings the user to the tty.
all symptoms are reverted when the llvm driver is used.
Ubuntu 16.04 Gnome edition (but even with unity installed and configured as default the symptoms are the same)
AMD Radeon RX 480 8G
The dmesg file is the output of the command after a tty return with ctrl+alt+F4.
original description here:
From what I read on the Phoronix forums, this happens because some COGL shaders fail to compile. So it's a bug in either COGL or the AMDGPU-PRO OpenGL driver. In neither case is this the appropriate place to track it.
