    Phoronix: Ubuntu 19.10 Doesn't Ship With AMD Navi / Radeon RX 5700 Support Working, But Easy To Enable

    While last week's release of Ubuntu 19.10 "Eoan Ermine" is new enough for Radeon RX 5700 series support with the Linux 5.3 kernel and Mesa 19.2, it doesn't actually work out-of-the-box for these Navi graphics cards...

    Often many Ubuntu releases have the ISO image update 3-5 times.

      From the article: "... thus today's PSA"
      For those who don't know what's PSA:
      Prostate-specific antigen, or PSA, is a protein produced by normal, as well as malignant, cells of the prostate gland.

          AMD really disappointed us with their software support.
          Canonical also, with focusing bringing support for the shittiest company (Nvidia) instead of focusing on AMD and Intel support.

            This really should have been avoided by Canonical. But thankfully the days are gone where this would be a deal breaker. Nowadays, they can re-up a fixed ISO and get over this oversight quickly.

              Not at all, that was Google's first answer.

                People who bitch about the terminal are the most moronic people. It's used because it's great and easy. Having to go through a strange download or 3rd party piece if crap like other operating systems is less secure, more confusing, and takes longer.

                  It is not easy to use the terminal. Nobody (as in the Average Joes) wants to open a terminal just to get their card to work.

                  Using the terminal (or pretty much any command-line interface) requires an higher-than-average understanding of a computer. They just want to get their work done, not spend a week on learning how to use a terminal.

                    This kind of "elitism" is exactly why the Linux desktop is always doomed to failure.

                    that said, messing around with ppas and custom repos is equally as bad.
