I updated my kernel to fix a problem with a graphics driver (namely AMDGPU-PRO from AMD) and it works like a dream now
However, if you fix one problem - another problem will arise. The bcmwl-kernel-source (WiFi driver for the AC1900 wireless card) doesn't seem to work at all?
Usually on the 22.214.171.124 kernel on Linux Mint 18.2, (I have no clue how to solve this problem) I have to re-install the WiFi drivers on reboot. using
sudo apt install--reinstall bcmwl-kernel-source
And it works as if nothing is wrong, tested it 4 hours straight and got a solid 8 megabytes/s peak.
Other information that I wouldn't mind speaking of: The PCIe ID is 14e4:43e0 / BCM4360
These were the error logs when trying to do re-install whycan'tnewlyregisteredpeopleputpictureshere >:(
And I'm using a computer that I've built, and the specs are:
GA-Z270X UD5 motherboard
i7 7700k (kabylake) CPU
- RX 560 graphics card
- Crucial ballistix elite 2666MHz (2 x 8gb kit) memory
- TP-link Archer T9E AC1900 (aka the problematic card) wifi card
I'm also very new to Linux. so please go easy on me :p
