I have a laptop with Ryzen 5500U running Ubuntu 20.04 with the latest-ish Linux kernel (5.13.13). Settings reports "AMD Renoir" as the graphics settings.
Whenever the laptop wakes from suspend, I get just animated "static" on the screen (like $ cat /dev/urandom > /dev/fb0). See photo.
I can't find the right keywords to search for this, anybody with experience?
My greatest life achievement this month - making sure the trains fro this intersection do not cause jams on the main railway going east-west.
Actually owning your hardware is nice. I just fixed fan noise on my #thinkpad by disassembling and cleaning up the fan assembly and dropping a bit of machine oil into the "axle" of the fan. No more noise at low RPM. That thing did not even originally have thermal paste on the "integrated" gpu die! #repair
It's been more than a year that I'm thinking of building a new computer. But given the current situation, I decided to do a bit of maintenance on my 6y old computer instead (clean up, replace thermal paste). After all, the trusty Skylake i5 6600K is more than capable for everything I throw at it, it has been running stable all this time overclocked 3.5->4.3GHz, and it's 14nm like most current Intel chips 😁
