I’ve normally used Xubuntu in the past, but after seeing the amount of effort and care that’s gone into Ubuntu MATE, I wanted to give it a shot. However I’m running into problem that I can’t seem to get around. For many other distributions that I’ve tried, I have been able to resolve AMD’s DPM bug by disabling it via grub. Using the
option, allows me to disable dpm and allows me to play games and use my graphic card. However, with Ubuntu MATE, putting that option in will not allow my computer to boot at all. And not putting it in, crashes the radeon driver as soon as I even so much as enable compiz. From what I assume, there’s something that’s conflicting with that option and Ubuntu MATE does seem to have way more going on in it’s Xorg configuration than Xubuntu did.
I really like what I’ve seen otherwise, the software boutique and level of customization are phenomenal, so I really hope I can get some help with this. Thanks in advance.
