i am new to linux, i am using Ubntu 16.04 and my video card type AMD Radeon and my PC is
mohammed@Jakri:~$ lspci -nnk | grep VGA -A1 00:02.0 VGA compatible controller : Intel Corporation Haswell-ULT Integrated Graphics Controller [8086:0a16] (rev 0b) Subsystem: Lenovo Haswell-ULT Integrated Graphics Controller [17aa:3815]
also see the below output:
mohammed@Jakri:~$ lspci -nn |egrep "VGA|Display" 00:02.0 VGA compatible controller : Intel Corporation Haswell-ULT Integrated Graphics Controller [8086:0a16] (rev 0b) 0a:00.0 Display controller : Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Sun LE [Radeon HD 8550M / R5 M230] [1002:666f] (rev ff)
my problem is that the GUI is freezing randomly and sometimes slow of response, i knew (from googling) that The fglrx driver is now deprecated in 16.04, so i tried to install AMDGPU-PRO driver using the below link
but the after restarting the machine my screen, start flashing and luncher tool-bar is not working until i UN-installed the AMD driver. i suspect in the partitions that i created during my installation of Linux blow snap of the fdisk command output shown the partitions and their details
Device Start End Sectors Size Type /dev/sda1 2048 31250431 31248384 14.9G Linux swap /dev/sda2 31250432 89843711 58593280 28G Linux filesystem /dev/sda3 89843712 90234879 391168 191M EFI System /dev/sda4 90234880 1066797055 976562176 465.7G Linux filesystem /dev/sda5 1066797056 1953523711 886726656 422.8G Linux filesystem
hope that you can assist me on this, i am very exited to move from windows 10 to Linux but this issue is disturb me alot.
