    How to enable DirectGMA on my WX5100 using the Ubuntu Driver version 16.50

    martinduboiskms

      Bonjour,

       

      I am working on a Linux device driver for a PCIe cart. I want to add a feature allowing the PCIe card to write data directly into the AMD WX5100 card memory using the DirectGMA technology. I already did it on Windows without problem.

       

      I work on a Linux computer using Ubuntu 16.04.4 with kernel 4.4.0.87. I installed the amdgpu-pro driver version 16.50. It work fine. I now need to enable the DirectGMA extension. The documentation said to use amdconfig but I do not have amdconfig on my system.

       

      The amdgpu module parameters include a parameter for the DirectGMA memory windows size. I set it to 96 MB using a boot option but this did not enable the extension.

       

      How can I enable the DirectGMA extension on my WX5100 when using the 16.50 Ubuntu amdgpu-pro driver?

       

      Thanks in advance

      Martin
