    Default openSUSE crashes on Ryzen Surface Laptop

    Hi, I tried to install openSUSE to my Ryzen laptop and the installation went fine. But system is very unstable. Keyboard and mouse stops responding and system freezes. Before installing it directly I created a live USB using Etcher and used it for few hours but the system didn't crash at that time. I thought that there is something wrong with the installation so I re installed it but still the system crashes. I just saw some posts on Stack Overflow says that Ryzen laptops are not compatible with Linux operating systems and don't know if that's the case. Any advice would be appreciated.

    @benjaminvin:

    If you laptop has either a Ryzen 5 4600H GPU or, a Ryzen 7 4800H GPU then, it should be OK – there are Linux Notebooks with these GPUs available here in Germany …
    • If you Laptop doesn't have one of those Ryzens then, for your case, you may have to use Tumbleweed, which has a newer Linux Kernel, which possibly supports the AMD Laptop Ryzen you have.

    15.2 runs without problems on an older AMD Ryzen 3 2200U with Radeon Vega Mobile GFX (HP255G7) that I have here, the only "extra" needed was to add "amd_iommu=on iommu=pt" to the kernel command line...

    More info about hardware is needed.
