I have an HP x360 laptop with Ryzen 5 2500U and Raven Ridge graphics. This was working nicely with 18.10 on the 4.18.0-17 kernel, but stopped working properly after an upgrade to 19.04.
After the upgrade the system refused to finish booting - blank screen after the GRUB menu. I was able to get it to boot by adding
nomodeset in GRUB. However, this prevents my second monitor from being detected.
I was also able to get the system to boot with the 19.04 kernel by blacklisting the
amdgpu module. This of course also prevents my second monitor from working.
When I use the 4.18.0-17 kernel again, everything still works great. Is there anything I can do to make the 5.0 kernel work?
