Hi there,

thanks for all your work on this!


AMD Ryzen 7 1700
ASUS Prime B350 Plus
AMD RX Vega 56


I did a fresh install from the netinstall ISO, choosing KDE plasma with sddm and everything went fine. The system rebooted into console, no graphical interface came up. Not surprisingly, startx failed as well.
amdgpu was installed, as was mesa, but the firmware-amd-graphics package was missing. While at it I also installed amd64-microcode, and when rebooting the graphical login came up fine.
When installing packages, I keep getting messages about being unable to correctly set the locale because LC_something appears to be missing. I'll look into this later, but I thought you might be interested in the firmware issue.

On my mobile machine I upgraded from Ascii which went just smoothly.

Thanks again for this great OS!

Hi there,

although I haven't got any experience helping with any distro yet, I'd like to offer a hand too. I have been using GNU/Linux for years and Devuan since the release of Ascii, and I am in the progress of learning some programming as well. At the very least I should be able to help with translations (German) if needed.

What can I do?

I used to play chess online, and I love wesnoth, mahjongg and supertuxkart from the repos.
Admittedly I bought some games, too:
TIS-100, Opus Magnum and Shenzhen/IO - nice puzzlers!
Pillars of Eternity,
x3, X Rebirth, would like to peek into x4, but that's not really drm-free anymore.
Mount & Blade Warband
I must admit I have given most of these games only a superficial try but I still like them. The Zachtronics puzzles are quite a regular evening pastime, though.
