UEFI Mode On Linux Still Bricking Samsung Laptops
Phoronix: UEFI Mode On Linux Still Bricking Samsung Laptops
It turns out the Samsung laptop issue whereby the hardware would become bricked when booting Linux in UEFI mode is not fixed. There were patches recently applied against the kernel that were supposed to address the problem, but it turns out that there are still problems ahead...
let me guess. they don't have the laptops to test them with.
