I have the same problem with Ryzen. All it is that you need 4.18+ kernel. Install Slackware 14.2, log in as root, upgrade to -current. 8th generation Core and second generation (maybe first?) Ryzen both have what they need for GPU code and X to start in the 4.18 kernel.

Also, elilo in -current works flawlessly for me in UEFI install while 14.2 was flaky. Which was not anything to do with elilo itself but buggy firmware. Mileage may vary.

If you're just planning on upgrading right to -current, you can save time and bandwidth by just installing -current directly using Eric's -current ISOs.

They will not boot into X until they have the 4.19 kernel. I tried. I have Slackware on the old laptop, have to wait for the new ISO because I want to test Plasma5 on this for the community, and for myself.

I tried different Live images of different distros, all the same result. It was the ones with 4.18+ kernels I could boot into X, and further reading confirmed others had the same result with the latest generations of Intel and AMD.

-current now has the 4.19 kernel, so you should be good to go to use the -current ISO.

What the hell, if I'm going to use the -current kernel & elilo, I might as well jump into it.
It's a new install on a new pc, so there's no software installed or anything.
If KDE5 sucks, I'll go to Xfce, so -current, here I come.
Downloading the ISO right now.

KDE5 isn't included in -current yet. It's still KDE4, although, we all expect it to be switched before 15.0 is released based on the following comment in the changelog (emphasis mine).

Code:
+--------------------------+
Fri Oct 12 19:24:43 UTC 2018
l/pycups-1.9.74-x86_64-1.txz: Upgraded.
l/pyparsing-2.2.2-x86_64-1.txz: Upgraded.
l/python-packaging-18.0-x86_64-1.txz: Upgraded.
n/gpgme-1.12.0-x86_64-1.txz: Upgraded.
       Please note that kdepimlibs ships with an earlier (and incompatible) version
       of gpgme and both packages install headers into /usr/include/gpgme++/. In
       order to recompile any packages depending on kdepimlibs, that package will
       need to be reinstalled. Originally gpgme was developed by the KDE project
       but later ended up under the gnupg umbrella. I'm not finding any clean way
       to work around this conflict, but I believe it will go away once we switch
       over to Plasma 5.

OK, thought it was.

I' am waiting for Alien Bob' s Plasma 5 ISO. For curiosity and testing. :-) Thanks though, I did forget about that.

EDIT: you have a point. I did not think that there would be a testing period before of Plasma5 before 15. Sound advice, Sir and my new laptop has only run Win10 (played around, nuked it), and, ahem, the other distros. Time to free it. Be free, be free, little birdie.

If you want to run Slackware Live with a 4.19 kernel and Plasma 5 before Eric puts out an update, you can roll your own Slackware Live ISO. Eric made all the scripts available to allow users to make their own versions (whether that's a "stock" version with no changes or a heavily modified version to fit your own needs).

To make a Slackware Live Plasma edition with the latest version of -current, you'd need to clone his liveslak repo and, as root, run make_slackware_live.sh with the -d option set to PLASMA5.

Code:
git clone https://git.slackware.nl/liveslak/
# If you run into cert problems like I did, you can get around it by running:
# git -c http.sslVerify=false clone https://git.slackware.nl/liveslak/
make_slackware_live.sh -d PLASMA5
This will download all the packages needed to build this ISO. If you already have a Slackware mirror on your computer, you can set that using the -s option.

Code:
make_slackware_live.sh -d PLASMA5 -s /location/to/slackware/mirror/
