Would like to know which linux kernel will work best with the hardware . Preferably ubuntu .

15-ef0875ms
Linux

Hp 15-ef0875ms ryzen 7 3400u and Vega 10 graphics, touchscreen ,and 12g ram. . With linux mint 64bit the wifi driver is easy ( just disable secure boot in bios. boot mint. Use cell phone with data cord to give laptop wifi. Or ethernet usb adapter. Then under administration click driver manager. ) . And although mint is ubuntu based.  I like ubuntu allot better. Mainly because I've been using it since version 12.04 maybe even 10.  .

@KilldaNME 

I'm sorry, but we here are not equipped to provide detailed Linux support.

HP only warranties their PCs for usage with the OS that comes preinstalled. IF you replace that with Linux, or add a Linux OS, then you assume full responsibility for maintaining that -- as HP provides Linux assistance only on Redhat and then only to commercial customers.

Since HP does not provide Linux drivers, your best bet for Linux support is to contact the support forum for the Linux distro you are using -- -- in this case, the Ubuntu Forums: http://ubuntuforums.org/


Folks on Linux support forums have experience using a variety of machines with Linux and know a lot about driver and installation issues. You will be able to get sound and detailed help there.

Good Luck
