i am trying to get Vulkan running on my machine for development purposes.
I am running Ubuntu 16.04 on a Lenovo Edge E145 with AMD A4-5000 APU and Kabini [Radeon HD 8330] Graphics. I am using the current AMDGPU-Pro Driver Version 16.30.
When running the "cube" example from the VulkanSDK Version 184.108.40.206 my system freezes. To be precise, the window manager and all GUI elements stop responding, but i can still connect to the machine using SSH. Using the command line via SSH works fine. I can remotely kill the stuck "cube" process, but i don't seem to be able to remotely restart the window manager.
The "cube" example getting stuck seems to be a bug in the Vulkan driver, or somewhere on the way down to the Kernel amdgpu driver.
Remotely starting GDB on the cube process, i get the following backtrace:
#0 0x00007f0755336687 in ioctl () at ../sysdeps/unix/syscall-template.S:84

Using the program strace i can see that the process is stuck on the following ioctl:
ioctl(5, _IOC(_IOC_READ|_IOC_WRITE, 0x64, 0x49, 0x20)
I am attaching outputs of a GDB session, strace, vulkaninfo and the dmesg output. For reasons of hardware identification i am also attaching output of lspci and cpuinfo.
Steps to reproduce this behaviour:
- Install Ubuntu 16.04
- Install AMDGPU-PRO 16.30 and the VulkanSDK using the How-Tos on AMDGPU-PRO Driver for Linux® – Release Notes
- Compile the examples in the VulkanSDK via "./build_examples.sh" (also append " -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Debug" to the cmake line in the build_examples.sh script)
- Run "cube" executable in "VulkanSDK/126.96.36.199/examples/build/"
- Wait until the cube stops rotating => cube process and window manager now are stuck.
