No GUI after 7th gpu installation
My rig boots on a start "info" screen and not the linux desktop if I install a 7th GPU independently of which pci-e slot I use or which GPU is the 7th. I need to use ALT-F2 to get a command line.
I have followed the motherboard specific guide and the GUI works with 6 GPUs.
Motherboard : Asrock H110 pro btc+
CPU : G3940
Ram : 4Gb - also tried it with 8Gb (2x4), same result
GPUs : Saphire 5xRX580 nitro+, 2xRX580 nitro+ SE.
Latest PiMP image with updates (>pimpup --auto) that runs of an SSD.
Please note that in Win10 with latest AMD drivers the rig works fine.
Any ideas/things to try?

If you run "top" is there an agetty process using a large % of the CPU?
Thanks for replying.
Didn't check that. Will do first thing tomorrow.
Yes, it does...

Hmm that's interesting. My rig does the same when the GUI doesn't load. I haven't found a fix yet however knowing this seems to be a consistent problem will hopefully get us some help. If you are fine only using the terminal to interface with the rig you can press Ctrl+Alt+F2 to get into a terminal or you can just use SSH. I would recommend as a temporary fix to the 100% CPU utilization you run these commands:
systemctl stop getty@tty1
systemctl disable getty@tty1
This will disable the GUI from ever loading. You can run: "systemctl enable getty@tty1" to re-enable it if there is a fix later but for right now I just disabled it so I wasn't dealing with having to kill the agetty process after every reboot.
Hope this helps some at least. Happy mining!
Thanks for the workaround.
Pity, I liked the desktop with the conky window (even though it doesn't anchor correctly on my 4:3 monitor).
Guess we'll have to wait and see...
We find with AMD rigs, there are bugs with the AMD drivers that prevent the X11 GUI from indexing the GPUs past 6. So 7+, AMD only, will have some issues. We are working actively to find a resolution to the issue.
