How-to Guide Getting AMD Ryzen Working With Ubuntu 14.04, 16.04, 16.10 and older

This will fix your crashes.

    One of the biggest issues anyone running Ubuntu will have with AMD Ryzen at launch is simply getting a stable system. For example, if you run Ubuntu 14.04.5 LTS (AMD64) server you will notice systems crash time to time. We have tried both the X370 and B350 based motherboards in 4 different CPU/ motherboard configurations and from different vendors. It happens.

    This is the quick guide on how to fix.

    cd /tmp
    echo Everything is downloaded. Time to install.
    sudo dpkg -i linux-headers-4.10*.deb linux-image-4.10*.deb
    echo Type sudo reboot to restart your system with the new kernel.
    If you are not doing this, then you are going to have issues, especially with Ubuntu 14.04.5 (and earlier.)

    If you experience crashes too quickly for the above, to work, download the files onto a USB stick then just run the sudo commands from where the USB stick is mounted.
