Ubuntu 18.04 running UE 4.24.1, any tips to making it stable?

I have used UE on Windows for a couple of years and recently wanted to switch to a more natural platform for me, Ubuntu (I use it for all other development work I do)

The editor compile and startup went pretty smoothly, but now that I’m using it more, I can get a consistent crash pretty easily.

If I load up the sample project 3rd Person view, and open the skeletal mesh asset and click between the tabs for the static mesh, animation, etc., I will get a crash like:

My platform is:

AMD Ryzen 2700 CPU
AMD RX550 GPU
32GB RAM

Running the amdgpu graphics driver, and the following Vulkan drivers


dpkg -l | grep -i vulkan

Any tips for how I can get the editor stable in Linux? Is there better GPU or Vulkan drivers/combinations? Is my graphics card (which is admittedly very low-end) a problem?

Let me know if there’s any other information I can provide. Or if there’s a Linux-specific channel/form to ask for these questions.

Thanks!

For me all was solved, when I install this driver (for AMD)

http://repo.radeon.com/amdvlk/apt/debian/pool/main/a/amdvlk/

I’m with a non-LTS distro derived from ubuntu19.10 (ubuntustudio 19.10) and I have one APU (AMD Kaveri A10-7850K). And it’s working right now! :slight_smile:
