Today I installed Ubuntu 18.04 via USB stick. A fresh install, cleaned out the whole disk.

To be able to get to the installer I had to pass "nomodeset" in the startup menu when booting from USB.

The system installed without problem, but when I removed the USB and booted the system, it only shows the loading screen and then (when entering GDM?) it freezes/crashes.

When investigating the filesystem, I found the related errors, I think, in /var/log/syslog :

Then a lot more lines like them, and after that:

Yes, the ^@:s is a part of that. There are lot more of them, but I did not want to spam.

Right now I am stuck, I do not know how to enter my new installation and I do not know how to fix this issue.

I remember it being hell getting my radeon r9 390 to work on my 4k screen with Ubuntu 16.04 and I have to send some extra commands to some driver file to make some flickering go away, but at least it works. :)

Hello!

Please use code tags around all terminal commands and their output. This maintains formatting and makes your post easier to read. It also keeps your post from appearing overly "spammy".

To use code tags, either:

1. Click the # button in the tool bars above the text input box, place your cursor between the code tags that appear and type or paste your text.

2. Type or paste your text, highlight it and then click the # button.

3. Type
before your text and after your text. The square brackets are required.

Was there more text after the @ symbols? If you paste it all between code tags, we can take a look at it. There might be something important at the end.

Thanks.

Thanks for the edit and tips. I'll make sure to make use of the code snippets in the future. :)

Sadly there were no more symbols after the @:s

However there were a LOT of them, spanning multiple pages in the console.

where you able to resolve this issue??

I'm trying to install ubuntu 18.04 myself and found with many similarities...

-I have dual 4k monitors
-I'm using radeon r9 390

I get my setup/desktop (whether I select try or install) hanged after a few seconds.. then mouse, then display goes out .. and not even hitting my power button does anything.. it's completely non-responsive... I'm trying a second USB Drive and if not i'm trying the "nomodset" command line, but I'm worried after I complete installation I won't get a working OS.. thanks and sorry for the old bump .. I couldn't found a newer complaint about this.
