Do you or do you not try this kernel parameter already?
I didn’t do this yet but it does do the trick! Thank you very much, your help is very appreciated. :)
However, I do not understand why the AMD DC would break existing functionality. Anyway, I’ll go modify existing GRUB settings.
I just hope this thread helps someone in similar need in the future.
GPU is connected to the monitor using DVI to VGA adapter, monitor is pretty old Flatron W1934S-BN.

Also, I feel like I weren’t clear enough, I’m able to use the machine just fine on Linux 4.14.90-1-lts so I can do commands from here. It’s the newer kernels that seem to cause issues.
Tested with sddm DM, however this did not fix the issue.
Hello, for quite some time I’ve been having issues with my system. I’ve used lts version for a while but want the get over the issue once and for all.
When loading system on kernel 4.15 or any higher than, I’m only able to see the process right until I enter the password to decrypt the hard drive. After that there is no output from the GPU (I guess?) and the monitor goes into power saving mode.
I do believe the GPU (AMD Radeon R9 380) and display stack added may be related to my issue. I do use mesa drivers.
