Configuring GNU/Linux on the HP 17z-ca300 with AMD Ryzen 4700U

Overall, GNU/Linux works pretty well on the HP 17z-ca300 with AMD Ryzen 4700U. Performance is great, and most features work with no or minimal workarounds. Wi-Fi isn't working yet for me, but there may be workarounds for people who need it. The optional backlit keyboard is great.

What Works (And What Doesn't)

Works: * I had to upgrade to a newer kernel and stop using XFCE for brightness to work.

Doesn't work


You may need to disable 'PalmCheck' when playing games. Use xinput to list devices, find the touchpad, list-props to list its properties, and set-prop to turn off palm check (Disable While Typing Enabled).
