• Pop!_Planet is still very much under development. Data for the wiki is being sourced from the Arch Linux and Ubuntu wikis, along with a bunch of completely unique content specific to Pop!_OS, and sourcing, converting and updating that content takes time; please be patient.

  • 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,

GPU problem encountered upon installation.

I use a HP ProDesk 600 G1 Tower running a Windows 7, 64 bit right now with the following specs:

Processor: Intel Core i5-4570 @3.20GHZ.
Memory size of 8GB.
Graphics card: XFX AMD RX570.

After burning Pop into a USB stick using Etcher and disabling both secure boot and fast boot then booting from the stick I get a window which has a count down of 10 seconds to boot, saying "Try Pop live or install", something like that. Afterwards screen goes black then a few grey lines drop before eventually coming to stop at the following line:

"fb0: switching to amdgpudrm from EFI VGA"

This line holds for about a 30 seconds then the screen goes black and eventually I would hear my graphics card's fans spinning at a very high speed for about 5 seconds then it stops, black screen still resumes while keyboard and mouse stop working for a few (no lights as if unplugged) before eventually starting to work again, but the screen is still black.
