[ubuntu] Looking to build an NVR/VMS and need advice on selected hardware compatability


I am looking to build an NVR/VMS Server with Ubuntu and have selected the required components, although I have not yet found a clear definition if they will work with Ubuntu.

The hardware specs for the intended system are:

CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 2600 3.4GHz 6 Core (Socket AM4)
Motherboard: Asus TUF B450-PLUS GAMING
Possible Alternative Motherboard: ASUS ROG STRIX B450-F GAMING
RAM: 2x Corsair Vengeance LPX 4GB (1x 4GB) 2400MHz DDR4 CL16
OS Drive: Crucial MX500 250 GB
Footage HDD: Seagate skyhawk hdd 1tb
PSU: Corsair RM550x
Graphics: Asus GeForce GT 710 1GB GDDR5
NIC: Intel PRO/1000 CT pci e EXPI9301CTBLK

The NVR/VMS software I am looking to use is Nx Witness from NetworkOptix which states it works with Ubuntu 18.04 and should work with 20.04

A Linux Status Report PDF on the ASUS website says the TUF B450-PLUS GAMING works with Ubuntu 18.04 however does not say to what extent and the ROG STRIX B450-F GAMING only says it’s suppose to work with Fedora 28.

When looking for compatibility of The CPU I noticed people said to stay away from the ones with integrated graphics so this chip should be ok in that regard.

I did notice on this post there seems to be a problem with AMD’s Ryzen AGESA or at least AGESA Combo-AM4 although I don’t know which version the board will come with. However Asus now offers AGESA which might solve problems. It will be nice if the board is able to take the CPU with out updating the UEFI as the general consensus seems to be don’t touch it unless you have to. Plus it seems the update process might need an older spec CPU to do this as well.

If it helps anyone else needing an older CPU just to update the UEFI it seems that AMD will loan a CPU for this purpose. The link for this option is: https://www.amd.com/en/support/kb/faq/pa-100

Does anyone have any experience with or know if these components are compatible with ubuntu 18.04 LTS and 20.04 LTS?
