Hello, I am using a Navi 10 GPU and I am experiencing screen tearing when moving a window and smooth scrolling in Firefox.
I have the linux firmware package installed and I am running KDE plasma without systemd and used genkernel for my kernel
How would I go about fixing this?

Thanks in advance

I solve that by making file /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-amdgpu.conf and placing this inside :

Code:
Section "Device"
     Identifier "AMD"
     Driver "amdgpu"
     Option "TearFree" "true"
EndSection


TearFree is the option that does it.
