Hello! So, after seeing a bit of this and that about the Solus performance I ended up giving it a try.
Downloaded the image, burned the disc, played around and finally ditched my old Ubuntu. Everything was absolutely fine, but then, the update happened and with it, a malfunctioning video card.
First monitor delivers a glitchy image. Second monitor does not have output.
I still can access the the previous kernel version on system boot by pressing space bar and selecting it. The previous version boots normally, delivering correct displays.
How should I tackle this situation?
