Hi ! My laptop is a Ryzen 5 (Renoir) Thinkpad x13 Gen1. The GPU is an integrated Radeon Vega 6. I've just installed bodhi and I've run into a problem when trying to install Vulkan (AMD driver with amdgpu-install) : the install can't properly complete (and the 3D stack is now compromised) because of libegl-mesa0 : the installer wants to update the library from 23.0.4-0ubuntu1~22.04.1 to 23.3~git2309100600.39fca2~oibaf~j, Problem : doing so would apparently break a huge number of dependencies (if I try to do it manually, it lists it would need to uninstall such things as Moksha, XOrg and so on).
So I'm stuck. I'm contemplating reinstalling everything, but it'd be nice if I could avoid it.
Small update : I've realized I could uninstall the amdgpu driver from amd (command amdgpu-install --uninstall). So I've recovered the basic 3D acceleration I needed to run some apps. So correcting the problem isn't quite as urgent anymore. Vulkan still doesn't run though, so it'd be nice to find a way to properly set it up (right now, vulkaninfo stops on a segfault)
I don't have any AMD gpu, but I didn't even know they offered proprietary drivers for linux until I looked into this "amdgpu-install" command (which is not part of bodhi/ubuntu but something you downloaded from amd).
In any case, when using the open source drivers provided by linux kernel, vulkaninfo should not segfault! That sounds like an upstream bug. (And it does not segfault for me, reports pages and pages of info).
If you installed Bodhi 7 with standard kernel, maybe try upgrading to hwe (hardware enablement) version:
sudo apt install linux-generic-hwe-22.04

Well, I had the segfault before trying to install the AMD driver (the segfault is the reason why I tried it).
Anyway, I installed the HWE kernel (which upgraded it from 5.15 to 6.2), with no change. Still no luck on Vulkan. Ok, if no one has any idea, I guess I'll try on the Ubuntu forum (I'm still not sure whether this is from ubuntu or bodhi : Moksha does depend upon not upgrading the libegl-mesa0 library which seems to be the core of the problem).
