    .. he says waiting for his 2400G-based system to arrive.
    It has, so I can say that in a MSI B350M PRO-VDH motherboard..

    .. it really does not like legacy booting. I can only boot reliably with UEFI, otherwise it locks up.

    Using a fresh install of Ubuntu MATE 18.04 but with 4.18RC2 from kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/ (specifically kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v4.18-rc2/) is working fine for me and is indeed more reliable than previous versions. The glmark2 score with 18.0 MESA is 2773 (plus or minus one!)

    I can install the MESA 18.2 drivers from launchpad.net/~paulo-miguel-dias/+archive/ubuntu/mesa and get a glmark2 score of 2797, i.e. slightly faster..

    .. but then it won't get to a graphical desktop when I next boot. I can Alt-F3 to a virtual terminal, uninstall them, and reboot. When I do that, it works.

    Given the difference - on this benchmark anyway - is so small, I can live without the hassle of installing them and remembering to uninstall them before the next boot.

      Of course having said that, it decides to lock up while playing a 2D game using the Unity engine.

      What's interesting is that having done so, it won't boot to desktop successfully unless I use recovery mode (where 'resume' ends up with not recognising the monitor properly and giving a 1024x768 screen) first.

        I have just built a new PC for myself to replace my very old core2duo junkpile.

        MSI B350M Gaming PRO mainboard
        Ryzen 5 2400G APU
        16Gb 3200 RAM
        256Gb SSD
        1Tb HDD
        DVD Writer

        I use Mint as my OS of choice, so attempted to install from USB, and eventually got to a desktop using compatibility mode install.
        After reading a lot I found this and thought to myself, that's the way to go.
        Installed ukuu so I could use a newer kernel (4.18.8 generic atm)
        Then added latest MESA from oibaf repo. 18.3

        It has boot issues, it will boot about 1 time in 4 attempts, otherwise it locks before it gets to the logo. When I do get to desktop everything works great, I don't game but do use things like Freecad and Draftsight.

        It seems pretty random, but after reading this article I'm convinced the mainboard is at fault, I'm new to these pointy-clicky bios stuff so will attempt to dig thru there and see if some obscure bios parameter is at fault.

        If anyone has any ideas or links I'd be glad of them.

        I'll be following this with interest.
