[Solved] Xorg virtual monitor using amdgpu virtual monitor

Hi
I'm using my pc using ssh, I usually use it with sunshine and moonlight, so I turn on the computer, wait for it to autostart Xorg and manually turn off the monitor so the light doesn't bothers.
After having to reboot my pc using ssh, the pc rebooted with the monitor turned off, so it's detected as connected but cannot use it to start Xorg.

I'm trying to make a virtual monitor with the virtual_monitor kernel parameter from amdgpu, configure it, and use it to start X and stream sunshine.

Following this reddit post I made:

lspci -D

...
0000:12:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Navi 21 [Radeon RX 6800/6800 XT / 6900 XT] (rev c3)
...
/boot/loader/entries/arch.conf

...
options ... amdgpu.virtual_display=0000:12:00.0,1

Rebooting and checking monitors:

for p in /sys/class/drm/*/status; do con=${p%/status}; echo -n "${con#*/card?-}: "; cat $p; done

Virtual-1: connected

So I tried configuring the Xorg display:

/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-headless.conf 

Section "Monitor"
        Identifier "Virtual-1"
        HorizSync 28.0-80.0
        VertRefresh 48.0-75.0
        Modeline "1920x1080" 172.80 1920 2040 2248 2576 1080 1081 1084 1118
EndSection

Section "Device"
        Identifier "AMDgpu"
        Driver "amdgpu"
        BusID "PCI:12:0:0"
        Screen 0
EndSection

Section "OutputClass"
     Identifier "AMD"
     MatchDriver "amdgpu"
     Driver "amdgpu"
EndSection

Section "Screen"
        Identifier "dummy_screen"
        Device "AMDgpu"
        Monitor "Virtual-1"
        SubSection "Display"
        EndSubSection
EndSection

I know that this conf file probably is wrong, cuz I made it using examples from multiple arch wiki pages and some others I found online.
After this I cannot get xrandr to detect any display, I also tried following the arch wiki headless monitor conf file but I must be missing on something.

Any help is welcome

Re: [Solved] Xorg virtual monitor using amdgpu virtual monitor

No idea about the amdgpu parameter.

For clarity: you did install xf86-video-dummy ?

If not, install it then try the file at https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Xorg#M … figuration .

Re: [Solved] Xorg virtual monitor using amdgpu virtual monitor

I've got the driver installed, but when using the dummy conf file I can start X and sunshine, but the plasma session I usually use doesn't has video output. I even get the message saying that plasma is running in that Xorg session but cannot get video output.
If I open the sunshine stream after starting plasma I only get to see the tty but I certainly know plasma is running.

That's why I was trying to connect the dummy monitor to the graphic card in the previous conf file, to get video output, still not working.

Re: [Solved] Xorg virtual monitor using amdgpu virtual monitor

The dummy monitor can't be 'attached' to a real gpu as far as I know .

You were close though. It is possible to link an X monitor to a specific output device .
Look up man xorg.conf for "Monitor-outputname"

Try something like

/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-headless-test.conf


Section "Monitor"
        Identifier "My-virtual-amdgpu-output"
        HorizSync 28.0-80.0
        VertRefresh 48.0-75.0
        Modeline "1920x1080" 172.80 1920 2040 2248 2576 1080 1081 1084 1118
EndSection

Section "OutputClass"
	Identifier	"AMDgpu"
	MatchDriver	"amdgpu"
	Driver		"amdgpu"
	Option		"Monitor-Virtual-1"	"My-virtual-amdgpu-output"
EndSection

EndSection

Using this conf I get to see the plasma loading screen, but after loading the process ends with no mayor errors and the server ends it's execution.
I had to add the Screen section otherwise the X server wouldn't even run.

The Xorg log when I manage to saw the plasma loading screen is this.

Re: [Solved] Xorg virtual monitor using amdgpu virtual monitor

Check the output of pacman -Qs xf86-video , remove all of it EXCEPT xf86-video-amdgpu .
(The others may not be harmful but do clutter up logs and you don't need them)

In the screen section (which was forgotten by me) replace
Monitor "Virtual-1" with Monitor "My-virtual-amdgpu-output"

Re: [Solved] Xorg virtual monitor using amdgpu virtual monitor

The log is truncated and pastebin.com is not very popular here.
See https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/List_o … n_services for alternatives.

63  [ 84962.523] (II) LoadModule: "amdgpu"

   65  [ 84962.523] (EE) Failed to load module "amdgpu" (module does not exist, 0)

Looks like you did remove xf86-video-amdgpu , please re-install it.

There are also permission errors mentioned, reboot and try again.

Re: [Solved] Xorg virtual monitor using amdgpu virtual monitor

My bad for the pastebin log. Thanks for the info.

I reinstalled the video-amdgpu package and rebooted. Still not working but no permission errors on tty are found.

Looks like something goes wrong before X starts.

append systemd.unit=multi-user.target to your boot commandline to ensure nothing graphical is started unless you order it.

Post the output of lspci -k , journalctl -b and your /ect/mkinitcpio.conf .
(second comand needs to be run as root / with root rights) .

Re: [Solved] Xorg virtual monitor using amdgpu virtual monitor

lspci -k

journalctl -b

/etc/mkinitcpio.conf

MODULES=(amdgpu)
BINARIES=()
FILES=()
HOOKS=(systemd autodetect keyboard keymap modconf block filesystems fsck)

Before running this commands I added the amdgpu module to the initframs following this. The commands and logs in this reply are after adding the module and rebooting. (Still not working)

Re: [Solved] Xorg virtual monitor using amdgpu virtual monitor

The boot goes straight into the graphical.target, but lightdm doesn't show up and also not the amdgpu.virtual_display parameter - also not in the boot for the xorg log!
As for the xorg log, the configs in this thread are bogus on multiple levels (no idea about the "Monitor-Virtual-1" option, I'll have to look this up)

There's a screen section referenceing a Device, but there's a and OutputClass and a Device w/ a wrong BusID (should be "18@0:0:0" or "18:0:0" and it's likely pointless anyway
Remove that, if the kernel parameter adds a fake output, X11 should™ pick it up by itself - then post then updated X11 log.

Re: [Solved] Xorg virtual monitor using amdgpu virtual monitor

lightdm doesn't show up and also not the amdgpu.virtual_display parameter

I do not use lightdm, I autostart X using startx from zsh .zprofile file.
About the amd parameter, I removed it testing some configs files and forgot to add it again, mb.

Here's the journalctl -b output

and the Xorg log

EDIT:
Looking at the journal log I noticed I write wrong the amdgpu virtual_display parameter, so I corrected that, here is the journal without all the "parameter not valid" errors: journalctl -b

You set amdgpu.virtual_display w/o any value, I was only referring to the BusID in the xorg config being wrong.
F***5
But the new journal seems to lack the parameter completely again?
Also we'll need an updated Xorg log.

I must have messed up my logs and show the old xorg logs and the old journal, sorry.

Here's the journal

And here the Xorg log
I get permission errors for tty, even after rebooting the pc. I know that Xorg shouldn't be run as administrator, but I tried it to see what happens:
The server starts, so I tried connecting with sunshine, but I only got a black screen, moving the mouse (no mouse drawn in the screen) I get plasma errors.

Running startx while logged in as root is doable (and can be a reasonable way to test basic functionality)  , but using sudo startx can have all kind of bad results .

Please post the output of

$  ls -lR /dev/dri
$ ls -l /dev/tty*

(Separate commands to keep output more readable)

Re: [Solved] Xorg virtual monitor using amdgpu virtual monitor

The ssh login won't get you control over the tty.
Try to https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Getty# … al_console and https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Start_X_at_login

Alternatively you'll have to run the X11 as root, nb. that's NOT THE SAME! as logging in as root and startx, let alone sudo startx!

Re: [Solved] Xorg virtual monitor using amdgpu virtual monitor

crw------- 1 soft tty  4,  1 Jul  9 18:40 /dev/tty1

You're however owning the tty in whatever context you got that output from.

Re: [Solved] Xorg virtual monitor using amdgpu virtual monitor

The ssh login won't get you control over the tty.

Auto starting X at login solved it and I am able now to get to sunshine and use the desktop.

Is this because ssh login has restricted permissions over the system?

However, thanks for the help, marking the thread as solved.

Re: [Solved] Xorg virtual monitor using amdgpu virtual monitor

It's because ssh doesn't log into the TTY but a PTS
I guess you could work around that and either unconditionally change the owner of the TTY or use a pam module to execute chmod on it, but since you probably want to start the X11 server anyway, the autologin is less hackish and also more convenient.
