Anyone with Ryzen 1700 experience and Linux

Could you paste your experience with your distribution.
What size system did you get (ram, cpu, motherboard, videocard).
Which distribution are you using?

I got Xubuntu 17.04 to install on my Ryzen box alongside Windows 10 by hitting E on the GRUB option for install and adding "acpi=off" to the parameters. That avoids the "Unexpected IRQ trap in vector 07" bug that derails installations of Ubuntu on Ryzen machines. I haven't tried it with an LTS release.

This configuration works with my Slackware-64 14.2 current that was already installed on a harddrive.

ASUS Prime X370-Pro AMD Ryzen AM4 DDR4 DP HDMI M.2 USB 3.1 ATX X370 Motherboard with AURA Sync RGB Lighting

AMD Ryzen 7 1700 Processor with Wraith Spire LED Cooler (YD1700BBAEBOX)

32GB of Corsair Vengeance LPX (4x8GB) DDR4 DRAM 3200MHz C16 – White (CMK16GX4M2B3200C16W)

I can remove and replace the harddrive to swap to different Linux distributions, rather than muli-booting or using VMs. Another disk with Debian worked OK also. I haven't tried the disks with OpenBSD or FreeBSD yet.

I still use an original IBM PS2 keyboard and a ViewSonic VGA monitor. The new motherboard didn't support VGA, so I stuck an old Radeon VGA card in the PCIexpress slot 1. I have a newer VGA card on order.

I haven't tried all the audio or video outputs, because I'm still using VGA and an old Dell speaker system.
