Where is the 15.04 64bit iso link at?

So, long story short… the new and awesome 16.04.2 LTS does NOT support my Amd APU, and as such is useless for me. I can get the O/S to work for basic stuff, but since I use it for home theather and gaming it will simply not work as I need it.

I had 15.04 working perfectly on my SSD, untill it decided to stop working. Thats when I decided to try the 16.04.2 only to find out after seeing that my ‘game’ wouldnt work that it was related to the GPU chipset, and another search made me find out that for some reason my chipset “Trinity 7650HD” specifically had been left out, where the others before and after still work with 16.04. Im baffled to the why, no reason given.

So, if I want to stay in ubuntu for the time being… its 15.04 only.

Where can I download it?

15.04 is no longer supported and therefore no longer available for download (See @Robgoss comment below) .
You can try and go with Ubuntu 14.04 LTS that is still supported up to 2019, and install the MATE desktop environment on that.

Well, is not available here, but as 14.04 LTS is available for download as ubuntu, 15.04 is also available.

This might be of use to you http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/releases/15.04/

Yes, thats where I downloaded 15.04 from.

Great glad it helped

So, by curiosity do you know if the update servers for those old releases are still operational?
If AMD third party drivers are also supposed to be downloaded from the ubuntu archives, this might be an issue?

That I couldn’t answer I would think not if the support has ran out. I don’t use the servers so I’m not to keen on advising how the support work with them

The repositories are moved to an archive server when the release is no longer supported:

If you want to continue using an outdated release then edit /etc/apt/sources.list and change archive.ubuntu.com to old-releases.ubuntu.com

You can do this with sed

sudo sed -i -re 's/([a-z]{2}\.)?archive.ubuntu.com|security.ubuntu.com/old-releases.ubuntu.com/g' /etc/apt/sources.list

then update with

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

I wouldn’t recommend install a distribution that’s not supported move on to the next working and LTS release

Id prefer to stay in a more modern distribution but as things look, there is NOT going to be AMD support (at least for my chipset) untill maybe next year. For general use I dont think there should be a problem running 16.04.2, but the moment you need 3D graphics (gaming or whatever) then you are forced to stick with an older release.

I personally like when something is working for me, and I avoid doing changes as long as I can, but this time it was the SSD that died and I had no choice, and since I didnt know the AMD situation decided to go after 16.04.2. Now that I know, I will stick with 15.04 and wait untill the open source driver is working as nice as it works in 15.04.

Btw, running the mate desktop over Ubuntu is not as nice looking as I experienced in ubuntu-mate, but for now it will have to do.

Thanks Rob for the link.

You’re most welcome my friend I’m the same way if things are working like expected why make any changes

Hopefully they ADM will support Linux and allow Ubuntu to run the it should on all machines
