• We had to restore from a backup today after a failed software update. Backup was from 0000 EDT and restored it at 0800 EDT so we lost about 8hrs. Today is 07/20/2024. More info here.

(SOLVED) games running slower than a powerpoint slide, any ideas?

Remove the nomodeset from your Grub configuration(or whatever bootloader you are using) and then run update-grub or whatever you use to update your Grub configuration. Then reboot and show the output of inxi -G again?

doesnt boot without nomodeset
I missed that, AMD graphics card should be able to boot without nomodeset but some seem to have problems with that. I have an AMD graphics card as well and the only thing I have installed are the kernel and mesa and it then automatically loads the amdgpu driver. Your system should automatically pick up the opensource driver as well since your system isn't doing that the alternative option would be to install the amdgpu-pro driver.
Officialy they the deb packages they provide are for Ubuntu but you could try to see if it works for MX Linux I'm not sure it does but it's worth a try since MX is based on Debian.

nevermind what i said in the message below im still confuesed, what commands am i supposed to use?
 
this may be random but when booting ive just realised that it says *warning* error vgacon disables amd drivers in kernal
 
Download the deb files and try installing it like they show here.
Code:
$ cd ~/Downloads
# For Ubuntu:
$ sudo apt-get install ./amdgpu-install-VERSION.deb
$ sudo apt-get update
donnerkebab1730@donnerkebab:~/Downloads
$ sudo apt-get install ./amdgpu-pro-21.30-1290604-ubuntu-20.04.tar.xz

E: Unsupported file ./amdgpu-pro-21.30-1290604-ubuntu-20.04.tar.xz given on commandline
donnerkebab1730@donnerkebab:~/Downloads
$
 
You need to extract it first.
Code:
tar -xfJ amdgpu-pro-21.30-1290604-ubuntu-20.04.tar.xz
 
I can't find the file you downloaded, I must have missed an option. Just download the deb from here and then try installing it.
