v18 LibreELEC Testbuilds for x86_64 (Kodi 18.0)
@eisenhauer to be honest I don't see that happening, at least not officially, since the goal of these test builds is to test functionality that will eventually be available in official LibreELEC builds and adding hundreds of thousands of lines of basically untested/unsupported (and even unwanted by kernel maintainers) code to the kernel is not something I'll be doing. There are reports that the DAL kernels cause vsync issues on Polaris 10 hardware, and who knows what issues for non-AMD hardware (which we also support).

Right now, creating a DAL kernel is best done by a community builder that is only interested in supporting your (or latest) AMD hardware.

I'd like LibreELEC to better support your hardware but for that to happen AMD need to get their act together and produce code that can be accepted into the mainline kernelas that's what we (and most official distributions) use. Trying to support AMD with a special DAL kernel is a lot more work for very little gain (particularly right now when the hardware is so new).
