Installation

Network is not working in standard Gentoo image. I was using USB WiFi TP-LINK Archer T1U during installation:

Kernel

The kernel configuration described in

You should except from Gigabyte_X570-UD this items:

  • Ethernet driver section
  • Do not enable `AMD Secure Memory Encryption (SME) support` because with this option kernel doesn't boot

Performance and CPU temperature

The my kernel config build time (after make clean) is about 3 minutes on this hardware

  • disk is INTEL SSDSC2CW240A3
  • memory is 2 x CRUCIAL BL16G32C16U4B.M16FE with Configured Memory Speed: 2666 MT/s
root #time make -sj 17
real	2m58,980s
user	38m32,045s
sys	4m14,134s

The maximum temperature is about 81°C during kernel build with standard AMD Box cooler without overclocking

Known hardware issues

Ethernet timeouts

  • use fresh kernel, 5.14+
  • disable scatter-gather on every boot via `/usr/sbin/ethtool -K eth0 sg off`

Bridge interface is not working with kvm

Found on 5.8.8 kernel. This bridge is standard bridge interface:

root #brctl show
bridge name	bridge id		STP enabled	interfaces
br10		8000.10c37b6d02a3	no		eth0

With kvm interface like this:

CODE
    <interface type='bridge'>
      <mac address='52:54:00:9d:cd:d0'/>
      <source bridge='br10'/>
      <model type='rtl8139'/>
      <address type='pci' domain='0x0000' bus='0x00' slot='0x03' function='0x0'/>
    </interface>

Network stop working until kvm stopped. Error is
