Re: Ryzen 5 2400G Working Flawlessly on Mint 19.1

It's definitely not off-topic. I knew you needed slightly updated kernels (4.17 and above) and MAYBE slightly updated Mesa (19.0 and above?), but I couldn't test Mint 19.2 for those things. It's definitely doable to make it work on 19.1, but now I'd highly recommend going 19.2 as you did. Cheers on ...

Re: Ryzen 5 2400G Working Flawlessly on Mint 19.1

Does anyone have a 2400G that is "Working Flawlessly on Mint 19.1"? Since my last edits, the system had become stable. I have since migrated from Linux Mint to Fedora 30, so I can't further provide feedback on Mint, but the system was in a working state when I left. If you're able to get an updated...

Re: Ryzen 5 2400G Working Flawlessly on Mint 19.1

It's alright, n2locarz. I think I phrased myself baddly. It hardly freezes, and when it does, I'm mostly to blame (because I'm using testing/unstable stuff). I also tried to phrase it that way so people wouldn't expect it to be "foolproof". It still breaks (if I try hard enough), but I think it is r...

Make Mutter memorize window positioning

I really like using a specific window layout. For example, browser covering 60% of the screen from the left and etc smaller stuff on the right. I can open all the windows I want and make the layout I like, but when I close any of the windows, Mutter opens them somewhere else. Earlier, the problem wa...

Re: Ryzen 5 2400G Working Flawlessly on Mint 19.1

Updated my first post. I dropped Ukuu because Mint's native kernels support my system! I recently fixed my "long" boot time and my kernel went from 36s to 5s according to systemd-analyze! We have to change /etc/initramfs-tools/conf.d/resume which has a line RESUME=UUID=somenumber to be changed to RE...

Re: Ryzen 5 2400G Working Flawlessly on Mint 19 (so far!)

Thanks for the information! These improvements sound very promising.

Kernel 4.19.0-rc8 can also be found on Ukuu if you toggle the "Hide unstable releases" button. I look forward to testing a stable release.

4.18.15 didn't bring anything exciting for the matter, if anyone's curious.

Re: Ryzen 5 2400G Working Flawlessly on Mint 19 (so far!)

Is there any problem in updating your kernel to, for example, the version I mentioned? It would be the only necessary step to stop hanging. There's also the mentioned boot options to stop hanging that shall work with the default 4.15.x kernel. Then, if you're really not into intensive graphics (like...

Re: Ryzen 5 2400G Working Flawlessly on Mint 19 (so far!)

I think we have to look at these problems the other way around. Instead of saying Linux (or any way you wanna call it) doesn't support this or that piece of hardware, we have to be impressed such mainly community-driven project is able to support about 20 years of hardware and software from various ...

Re: Ryzen 5 2400G Working Flawlessly on Mint 19 (so far!)

So I am still on the look-out for a long-term, reliable distro. And I would really like this to be Mint 19. Seeing I have quite a few sound, display and ACPI issues, I am going to test a couple of the solutions mentioned here. To begin I have just added the pcie_aspm=off idle=nomwait options to gru...

Added repo for ukuu and added that, updated to latest stable generic ubuntu 4.18.8 Added repo for MESA and updated that to 18.3 Had lots of issues during this procedure, MESA got updated today and so far the bootup and shutdown problems have gone!

Re: Ryzen 5 2400G Working Flawlessly on Mint 19 (so far!)

EDIT: but if you DO require an updated graphics stack, I would strongly recommend trying padoka PPA and the latest stable 4.17.x kernel. Apparenlty 4.18.x had a small regression for AMD cards. What regression have you noted with the 4.18 kernel? https://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=article&item=l...

Re: Ryzen 5 2400G Working Flawlessly on Mint 19 (so far!)

Thanks so much for this thread. It's good to know that there are solutions I am also using the cheapy ASUS A320M-k with Ryzen 1600x & Radeon RX570 I haven't been able to get LM19 or Ubuntu 18.04 for that matter to work acceptably with default Kernel. The issues: - random hard freezes (Cinnamon) - s...

Re: Ryzen 5 2400G Working Flawlessly on Mint 19 (so far!)

Yeah... always having the newest and greatest may sound like the best idea, but some recent benchmarks, just for illustration, showed that kernel 4.18.x had a slight regression on graphical performance compared to 4.17.x on AMD cards. I also feel like Linux Mint's core updates are very breakable wit...

Re: Ryzen 5 2400G Working Flawlessly on Mint 19 (so far!)

Thanks for your input! Your solutions seems quite more elegant than mine, but I won't trade at this point. Instead of adding kernels to the update manager or to my source lists, I'm simply using Ukuu (Ubuntu Kernel Update Utility). Instead of going all the way to 4.18, I stuck to 4.17.19-041719-gene...

Re: Ryzen 5 2400G Working Flawlessly on Mint 19 (so far!)

Glad to see this post. Turns out LM19 and Ubuntu 18.04 just aren't compatible with my BIOS (older FM2+ mobo) which I have an AMD A10 6800k APU installed on. Been toying with the idea of upgrading the system. I love the idea of APUs, and have been impressed with my 6800k, but I want to ensure whatev...

Just wanted to know how's the performance of Dota 2 on your machine. Any tweaks that you've made to your system or steam client apart from installing vulkan library? I recently got new info and it appears Cinnamon has some bugs getting dota 2 vulkan to work. I don't intend to install a new Desktop ...

Re: Ryzen 5 2400G Working Flawlessly on Mint 19 (so far!)

Thanks a lot for your detailed reply. DoTA 2 is stable on OpenGL you say? In my case it used to be very poor when I played via OpenGL, Vulkan had brought about some much needed stability but then an update came and all hell broke loose. Valve should really invest some more resources into developing...

Re: Ryzen 5 2400G Working Flawlessly on Mint 19 (so far!)

Really funny how you made that question right now. I moved from Kernel 4.17.11 to the latest stable 4.18.1 simply because with this hardware I feel like I need an up-to-date kernel. I don't plan on keep moving upwards too much, since my crashes have ceased in normal use. Now... I did set up Dota 2 t...
