Actually I met a similar issue as this one：AMD Radeon APU and Ubuntu 16.04.3 And I don't think it's an driver issue. I am working on a ASUS F402BA and it has AMD A9-9420 Processor, Radeon R5 Graphics with 8GB DDR3 RAM.
It has a wifi adapter Qualcomm Atheros Device 0042.
Currently steady Ubuntu distributions are 14.04 and 16.04. I am trying both.
Ubuntu 16.04 will work for a while (~30 min) on my machine and it will become slow/not interacting:
- Everything on the screen stops except that the mouse can move.
- The mouse can move, but it cannot click. When the mouse is moving upon any icon, target icon does not react at all, not changing lightness etc.
- On keyboard side, when typing Alt+Shift+Screenshot REISUB ,Ubuntu will restart, but any keyboard input won't show up on screen, for instance, pressing home key does not brings searching menu.
But I tried Ubuntu 14.04, and it works well on this machine, except the fact that it does not have the corresponding wifi driver: Qualcomm Atheros Device 0042.
So I still prefer to stick to steady ubuntu 16.04. Could anyone help me on this?
