[Bug 1321889] Re: Radeon 4550 can't boot without radeon.audio=0 since kernel 3.13


This would be a kernel issue (not X.org/userspace). You would be much
better off posting to something like dri-devel list or somewhere else
that actually gets view from open-source radeon devs.

I have a system running Windows with a Radeon HD4550. I might try to tun
a LiveUSB of 14.04 there to see if it boots correctly.

  Radeon 4550 can't boot without radeon.audio=0 since kernel 3.13

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I have some kind of "any distribution" bugs here it is :
  With every kernel more recent than 3.12 (I haven't still found the exact commit, but the first ubuntu released kernel in which it happens is the 3.13rc1), it seems that the kernel is loaded with radeon.audio=1 by default, and the ATI 4550 (and probably others) can't boot (black screen with frozen system) or only with nomodeset.

  This error is repoductible with any ubuntu version or flavor, and even
  with other distros.

  So to boot any kernel more recent than 3.12 I have to use
  radeon.audio=0 as an argument to boot.

  But the second problem is that now, audio over HDMI is disabled, but I
  have found somewhere a command that make audio over HDMI back :
  "xrandr --output HDMI-0 --set audio on".

  I'm free to answer any question and to help to debug it as much I'm
  skilled enough to do it.
