I was lucky enough to get my hands on one of the new Asus PN50 Ryzen 7 boxes yesterday. Fortunately, it has a Ryzen 4700U and should smoke my Pi4 and older Intel 4200U Proxmox box.
The bad is that the Proxmox installer fails and dumps out to a command prompt after obtaining a DHCP lease. While digging through the logs I noticed that the installer was failing trying to start the X server for the GUI. What to do? Run the following:
$ chmod 1777 /tmp $ apt update $ apt upgrade $ Xorg -configure $ mv /xorg.conf.new /etc/X11/xorg.conf $ vim /etc/X11/xorg.conf # update Driver "amdgpu"-> "fbdev" <-be sure to get all instances in the case of a multi-head card which tripped me up initially. $ startx
This should start the Proxmox installer and everything else is smooth sailing. Note, this will not persist through a reboot as this is done within the “live image”, so don’t reboot in this process until Proxmox has completely installed.
EDIT: It seems
vim may no longer be part of the installer in 6.3. If
vim is not working and you get “Command not found”, try
