OpenMW ARM64 + AMD GPU = Random Crashing

Post by wooty »

I have tried using the OpenMW build from the Debian repository, and also tried building from source and encountering the same issues.

I am using an LX2k ARM64 workstation with two different AMD Radeon Pro WX cards. It appears after I reach some condition while walking around the game will crash itself and the display driver making it impossibe to recover system without a hard reset. I am also unable to access a TTY console at the time of crash. With a Radeon Pro WX 2100 the game rarely crashes and can usually get ab out an hour or more in a session. I recently upgraded to a WX 4100 and now the game is just about impossible to play. I noticed I get more playtime starting a new character but accessing old saves crashes within almost a minute.

Before I submit any bug reports to GitLab, what would be the best way to debug or pull logs for this kind of issue? Thanks.

If the display driver crashes, that's almost certainly the display driver's fault. Even if we're doing things we're not allowed to, OpenGL is specified to generate error messages rather than crash.
