  • Welcome!

    I'll get straight to the point.

    When I started Pop!_Planet, I launched it because I saw a need for a centralized community for Pop!_OS. To be frank, I never expected the level of popularity it has achieved. Over the last year, we have gone from under 50 users, to almost 400 users. That's awesome! However... it also comes with a downside. We are rapidly running out of disk space on our server, and the bandwidth costs go up every month.

    Pop!_Planet is not affiliated with System76 in any way, and is funded completely out of pocket. From day one, I said that I'd never use on-site ads (I hate them as much as you do), so the only monetization we get is through donations. Right now, the donations we receive don't even cover our overhead.

    I know that most users will ignore this message, and that's ok. However, if even a few of our users are willing and able to donate a few dollars to help offset our expenses, it would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you for your time,

Question DRM kernel mode setting (nVidia)


New member

I tried POP! _OS (19.10) in live mode. And this is the first time of all the Linux systems that I tried when the DRM kernel mode setting was working. I always got a blank (black or purple) screen. What is the secret of POP! _OS? I would still like to try to make this option work on Ubuntu 19.10.

Pop!_OS uses Kernel stub and systemd boot instead of Grub. Although Pop and Ubuntu share some packages and a heritage with Debian, they are very different in many ways.
