I have an AMD 2200G APU that is currently running Debian 10 out of the box.

I tested Centos 8, which did not come with a driver. AMD provides a newer driver for RHEL and Ubuntu which can support newer AMD APU like the 3200G and is backwards compatible with the 2200G. I used AMD's 19.30 driver in Centos 8 and it worked fine. It is possible to use AMD's Ubuntu driver in Debian 10. I"m happy with 19.10 in the Debian Repo's for my APU and have not tested AMD's 19.30 driver.

these are built for ubuntu. the script checks for a specific ubuntu version.

you can change it to the debian version you are running.

last i tried, the packages installed without issue.

however i was never able to boot into a gui

now i don't know whether i should have removed the running xserver files before installing the new ones. it just seemed to much of a risk for me to try.

and i have the attitude that i will not be the first person to suffer the bad effects of this action.

+1, me too. Don't try the "pro" drivers, they don't perform as well as the open source versions anyway.
