See that's what I was expecting .. amdgpu as the driver instead of the framebuffer driver you're currently getting in Peppermint.

I'll keep hunting, but are you up for testing the 5.0 kernel in Peppermint ?

I had a feeling that's where you were going with this

Yeah I'm up for it :)

Just as a point of interest Ubuntu 19.04 booted and run no problem without nomodeset, unfortunately I can't test video playback as there seems to be no codecs installed

Okay then, in Peppermint run these commands in sequence:
Code: [Select]
mkdir ~/kernel-5.0.2
then
Code: [Select]
cd ~/kernel-5.0.2
then
Code: [Select]
wget https://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v5.0.2/linux-headers-5.0.2-050002_5.0.2-050002.201903131832_all.deb
then
Code: [Select]
wget https://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v5.0.2/linux-headers-5.0.2-050002-generic_5.0.2-050002.201903131832_amd64.deb
then
Code: [Select]
wget https://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v5.0.2/linux-image-unsigned-5.0.2-050002-generic_5.0.2-050002.201903131832_amd64.deb
then
Code: [Select]
wget https://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v5.0.2/linux-modules-5.0.2-050002-generic_5.0.2-050002.201903131832_amd64.deb
then
Code: [Select]
sudo dpkg -i *.deb
once finished, REBOOT (you may need to disable secureboot in your BIOS)

Once rebooted, post the output from
Code: [Select]
inxi -Fz



Remember, if it won't boot you should still be able to choose the 4.18 kernel from the GRUB menu.

It booted up fine but it's made no perceivable difference to the video playback, but that said I can now boot without nomodeset

Hope you don't nind if I throw a wobbler here but I've just noticed that running the 5 series kernel borks the Windows VM with this messageKernel driver not installed (rc=-1908)

Quote
The VirtualBox Linux kernel driver (vboxdrv) is either not loaded or there is a permission problem with /dev/vboxdrv. Please reinstall virtualbox-dkms package and load the kernel module by executing

'modprobe vboxdrv'

as root.

where: suplibOsInit what: 3 VERR_VM_DRIVER_NOT_INSTALLED (-1908) - The support driver is not installed. On linux, open returned ENOENT.

even booting back into 4.18 or 4.15 doesn't fix the problem I had to completely uninstall all Virtualbox packages then reinstall Virtualbox from scratch to get it working again is this likely to be an issue even if we get video playback working right ?

What happens if you install the 19.04 firmware
http://cz.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/l/linux-firmware/linux-firmware_1.178_all.deb
then reboot.

After doing so, can you post
Code: [Select]
inxi -Fz
again.



VM's **may** need to be rebuilt (or more likely vbox itself) .. but we'll get to that later, as I'm not even 100% sure we need to keep the 5.0 kernel yet.

Sorry Mark just realised I didn't fully answer you question on your last post

It made no perceivable difference, I've also realised I've got no sound output through HDMI,  Pulseaudio appears to be detecting it but there's no output, this PC is connected to a TV monitor so If I understand correctly I should be getting sound through the TV speakers, I've tried every setting possible in Pulseaudio but I'm getting nothing

That will also be down to its not using the amdgpu driver.

I'm looking for a way to 'force' amdgpu if we can't get it to switch automatically .. still looking.
