Basically I went out of my depth as a new Linux user and in an attempt to fix a (now) minor problem, I checked the ‘Graphics Support’ under the linux mint sub FAQ for help.
I tried to enable DRI3 as seen here with the commands shown before properly having installed AMD MESA which I guess caused my problem.
Saved and rebooted, but now I’m unable to boot into Linux at all (still have W10 as dual boot)
When booting I see:
usb device descriptor read/64 error -110
usb device descriptor read/64 error -32
cannot get freq at ep 0x1
no caching mode page found, assuming drive cache write through linux
several cannot get min/max values for control X
I have tried:
removing all usb’s, then it simply boots into a black screen with a blinking underscore in top left corner, but with no errors.
Adding ‘nomodeset’ in the GRUB menu but this has no effect.
Removed ‘quiet splash’ in GRUB menu to see where it fails, but it always asks me to log in before I can see where it fails, but I assume I completely messed up my GPU.
Linux Mint 18.3 Cinnamon x64
GPU Radeon fury
Windows 10 dual-boot
If you need more info, let me know. Any tips would be greatly appreciated!
