Objective: Find some distro for Lenovo E560 that will just work.
After install I had poor Intel performance. Skylake gpu was not properly identified.
After installing AMD drivers (according to Arch wiki) I realised that AMD performance is also poor.
I also had a weird problem with yaourt. It was cutting few signs from every line of output.
Unfortunately I was not able to boot from usb because Manjaro mhwd can't see any gpu on E560... :/ Tested on few versions of Manjaro.
I was curious how it will work. OS is looking nice but Intel performance was also poor (too old kernel).
Nice looking how-to but not working for me:
This script was working, but I got strange effect:
After installing driver, using this method AMD GPU was working much better, but GPU was identified as something strange (not normal GPU name).
Luckily Skylake GPU works out of the box with good performance:
But proprietary drivers provided by system caused black screen or blinking screen (without X):
Working drivers (from AMD web site):
go to the AMD site and choose Linux 64 bit and download the file.
Run the file from terminal, install required debs (if asked - headers etc), chose to build packages for your Ubuntu 14.04 and wait a while (status bar was not working for me).
Before reboot you need to run as root:
For me it was all ;).
