Hello good people of the Phoronix forum.
I really hope that someone in authority at AMD will read this.
I sell and service Linux and windows computer for a living. And the fact that the Linux AMD driver is unstable limits my costumer choice. And that prevent me from building a custom linux ring for my client with an AMD Processor and chipset.
The Following bug are a deal breaker.
random full system freeze when using compiz and firefox ( X server unresponsive for 1 to 3 second !!!) gnome and Kde4
X server Crash (KDE4) on log off, reboot, and user switch which force the user to do a hard reboot.
So in conclusion instead of building a basic linux system with a AMD X2 7850 and a 780G motherboard I have to choose a more expensive Intel processor and a weaker but better supported Intel chipset.
Have a nice day
