How do I add the boot options and have them stick? I tried modifying the yaboot but I ended up breaking my install.
I can get it installed with the live radeon.agpmode=-1 then I was able to boot it by typing at the first boot Linux radeon.agpmode=-1 that's where it breaks down, I don't know how to make that change stick. I'm used to using Linux Mint which is similar, but just different enough that it breaks things when I try to adjust them. -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Kernel Packages, which is subscribed to linux in Ubuntu. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1571416 Title: System freezes shortly after reaching the desktop (Ubuntu MATE 16.04, PowerPC) Status in Linux: Confirmed Status in linux package in Ubuntu: Confirmed Bug description: The freeze happens every time unless I use "radeon.agpmode=-1" as a kernel parameter.
