Follow up to my report about failing to install #KDE neon on Ryzen APU based system: I tried to use #SparkyLinux which in contrast to my previous experiences with it was awful. I got it installed however the process was a mess & I wasn't able to install Plasma. I then went on to the Plasma flavour of #Manjaro. Installation was a breeze, however the system locked up on the first update & after that Plasma was dead & pacman also. I then tried #Kubuntu 18.10 & that's what finally runs well. #Linux
I'm really disappointed right know about the AMD Ryzen APU in terms of #Linux compatibility. I gave the development plenty of time until I built this new system & I expected that everything works ootb on #KDE neon (Ubuntu 18.04 base) but it was an epic fail. Booting into the live environment gave me an unusable split screen mirrored image & booting with nomodeset results in a black screen. I'm out of ideas since there is no textmode installer sadly. 😪
Can anyone recommend a ~200 EUR or $ tablet with keyboard which is fully Linux compatible ootb without having to unlock bootloaders etc.? Does such a device exist even? #Linux
I'm interested in all kinds of motorsport and IT. I'm no coder but contribute to several open source projects & collect data for OpenStreetMap.
