Bug Description


Currently in 18.04 beta1, (v4.15), CNL-Y graphics is not enabled.
is_alpha_support = 1
572 static const struct intel_device_info intel_cannonlake_gt2_info __initconst = {
574 .is_alpha_support = 1,
575 .platform = INTEL_CANNONLAKE,
576 .gen = 10,
577 .gt = 2,
578 };

Enabling it needs 59 commits backported from 4.16/drm-intel-next-queued according to a list provided by Intel.

[test case]
Test a kernel build with backports on CNL-Y.

[regression potential]
minor, they are mostly about CNL only

By the way, as roadmap of CNL-Y described

beta release will be out on WW17'18. Currently in 4.16, CNL-Y graphics should be in alpha phase. and absolutely unstable.

This is only for kernel. For mesa/2d/media driver, there should be more works on that.

summary: - [CNL-Y] enable graphics
+ [CNL-Y] enable graphics of kernel
summary: - [CNL-Y] enable graphics of kernel
+ [CNL-Y] enable alpha kernel support of graphics

SUSE graphics works well on CNL-Y with commits provided by Intel.

I have done a comparison between 4.16-rc6 and bionic (Ubuntu kernel 18.04), there are some difference. Seems more.

Would Canonical Graphics team to make sure if all the commits have been pushed into 18.04?


I will attach the excel in this bugzilla.

we have a try on latest stable kernel 4.16-rc6. The function works normally except some little bugs.
We are still on more testing for 3D, 2D testing. Any result, will be shared in this bugzila.

Thanks for your cooperation.

You should probably test what's going in 4.17 as it includes the rest of the commits from that list:


install linux-image..generic..amd64.deb

actually I'll just build you bionic kernel with the backports.. it should be ready in an hour or so

ok here it is:


forgot to change the version number to something temporary, the actual -14.15 won't have these patches

I can trivially hang the GPU even with drm-intel-nightly just by going through the gnome control center options. Wonder if rev 03 is too old.

File a bug in freedesktop, maybe they could provide some hints.
