    I can't for the life of me get a Linux distro to work on this laptop. I try 'vblank_mode=0 primusrun %command%' and 'vblank_mode=0 optirun -b primus %command%' and still nothing. I get a an error stating that GLX is not found on this screen.

    I prefer (this should be read as '"STRONGLY" prefer') non-system distros, but, can't seem to get any of them to run solidly on any max-q laptop. I play EverQuest circa 2002 and do office work. I would like everything to run on the dGPU and rip out the crappy iGPU, but, it seems I cannot.

    Any good guides on getting Linux, of any flavor, up and running on this thing?
     
  2. Try with Fedora 30, currently I have that distro in my Razer Blade 15 1029 mid and it works like a charm
