Re: [SOLVED]Vega 8 Linux Mint Problems

lol I'm a noob too, but tbh I would try updating the bios first. I tried 4.18 official and I kept on getting crashes, and I know for certain that 4.17 doesn't work, maybe try 4.18 rc3 like I did and see what happens. And have u disabled quiet splash?

Re: How to play .swf files

The best (and easiest way) would be to build it into a HTML file.
I don't think you can run a swf file by itself.

[SOLVED]Problems with a new HDD

Alright, so I am relatively new to Linux, and I have been using it for just a month. I am running a Ryzen 3 2200g (that was a nightmare to set up) and a ASrock AB350 pro4. I was using a 240 GB ssd for data storage, the OS (cinnamon, 4.18.1 kernel), games, etc. It started filling up pretty fast, so I...

Re: Steam problems

You should try this code. Are you running a AMD graphics card?
find ~/.steam/steam/ubuntu12_32/steam-runtime \( -name "libgcc_s.so*" -o -name "libstdc++.so*" -o -name "libxcb.so*" -o -name "libgpg-error.so*" \) -print -delete


Install steam and put this in the terminal. Then it should work

Re: Vega 8 Linux Mint Problems

Honestly, at this point, I think it's best to stay in recovery mode until they release a stable version and use another computer for gaming.

You may have to install a PPA to update the kernel to something newer then 4.15.x. A poster managed to get this working perfectly by using the the 4.18.x-RC3 kernel and updating Mesa to a more recent version.

Edit: Update your BIOS.
Btw, who was the poster?

Re: Vega 8 Linux Mint Problems

I tried updating to 4.18-rc3, but when I boot, it shows the linux mint icon, then a black screen. I have NOT messed with mesa yet.

...as whm1974 said: upgrade your BIOS first.
And quite likely you might have to upgrade to a more recent kernel also (4.16 & above).
Alright I'll go try those. Thanks! If anything happens, I'll update the post.

Re: Vega 8 Linux Mint Problems
