amdgpu on kernel 4.19

Postby arielvtpma » 2019-01-23 05:07

Hello,

My debian stretch boots fine with kernel 4.18 with the amdgpu driver on my R7 260X (BONAIRE XTX).
It does not boot with kernel 4.19 because it could not find the bonaire driver on firmware/amdgpu.

To solve this I copied the BONAIRE driver from firmware/radeon to firmware/amdgpu.

I don't know if this is a good solution.

Thanks in advance

At this time, I would consider installing Buster. It has entered transition freeze and will be in soft freeze in about 2 weeks.
Release is anticipated about 10 days after Full Freeze - about 2 months.

The usual freeze period is about six months, although it does vary, so I would expect Debian 10 to be released in September(ish).
