So I recently installed Linux Lite 4.8 and installed a driver for my GPU (MSI RX 580 4G) because I was having frame rate problems playing games.
Driver: https://github.com/GPUOpen-Drivers/AMDVLK
So I installed following the directions for Ubuntu and now every time I boot with
Code: [Select]
nomodeset or
Code: [Select]
quiet splash, it will freeze and not ever go to the login screen.
