|0007447: Bug in kernel version linux-image-5.14.0-kali4-amd64
My issue is similar to this one https://bugs.kali.org/view.php?id=7445 but occurs on desktop PC, new kernel update breaks amdgpu, I cannot operate with SMplayer or any web-browser it just freezes... and booting up a system takes a couple of minutes.
|Steps To Reproduce
I tried to purge and reinstall the kernel but nothing helps, only reverting to previous kernel version resolves the problem.
here's the output from
This issue is still not fixed, if I upgrade the kernel same issues starting to happen again and as I see keeps happening to other Kali users as well.... I guess we'll just have to wait for newer kernel release 5.15
The issue https://bugs.kali.org/view.php?id=7445 was solved with the latest kernel. Does the new version fix the issue for you?
Actually I wanted to answer to bug id 7486 / last post of daniruiz (same problem like here and 7445), but these bugs are closed already. First of all, thank you very much for finally fixing this long lasting damn amd bug which forced me to use BlackArch because new installations of Kali 2021.4 didn't boot (not even live USB). But as VT already wrote in bug 7486, we would expect a much faster fix, if you really can't test these fundamental things in advance (all AMD users can't boot anymore is not only a small bug) because of manpower and hardware which I understand. But what I really don't understand is, how your team could ignore this big issue for nearly 1.5-2 months and even release 2021.4 although this was reported 1 month before 2021.4 release and a fix being available long time ago in Debian testing (bookworm) as I wrote before->bug fixed much too slow.
I know Kali is for free, but our company really pays much money for OSCP/OSEP/etc. courses for our employees to take your expensive courses which cost tousands of $ and thus also finance the Kali development indirectly. It's really frustrating if you only have a few months (1-3) and can't complete the course as regular because Kali is full of bugs which you have to fix yourself all the time (also the VMware image in the past, so we tried native Kali). Because of that, I'll write to Ms. Rubio of OffSec that our company won't order any Learn One/Unlimited courses at the moment. I hope QA perhaps gets better/faster in the future. Anyway thanks for the hard work your team does, which I appreciate much.
Thank you for your feedback. I've shared it with the rest of the Kali team and we had a conversation about how to avoid this happening again. It is true that the issue was hard to find as it only affected laptops with AMD graphic cards, but once the fix was released on Debian it should have arrived to Kali much earlier.
I'm closing this now that's fixed
