Hello!
Who can help me find and install a proprietary "drivers" for AMD A4-7210 in debian 9. With debian 8 no problems.

Catalyst AMD drivers has been dropped and replaced by open-source kernel driver amdgpu. There is a non-free version called AMDGPU-PRO, but it's meant for professional workstations, not home use.
Older Radeon cards are supported by radeon driver, and newer (SI cards and up) are supported by amdgpu. SI and CI cards for now require manual changes in order to work with amdgpu driver.
You still need to install firmware-amd-graphics package, which is only in non-free repo, for optimal performance.

EDIT: You have CI card, so by default radeon driver will be used. You have to install or compile a more recent kernel, enable amdgpu.ci_support=1 radeon.ci_support=0 flags in your /etc/default/grub in order to use amdgpu driver.

I will try. Thank you.
You can have a setup guide like Debian 8?
P.S. Sorry for bad English

It's on wiki:
https://wiki.debian.org/AtiHowTo
It should be automatic if your card is supported. You may only need to enable non-free repos by editing /etc/apt/sources.list to look like this:
Code: Select all
deb http://deb.debian.org/debian stretch main contrib non-free
deb http://deb.debian.org/debian-security/ stretch/updates main contrib non-free
deb http://deb.debian.org/debian stretch-updates main contrib non-free

and install firmware-amd-graphics package. Don't forget
Code: Select all
apt update
after editing the list.
