Installing firmware for Radeon Vega graphics

Postby kwiqsilver » 2018-12-03 19:50

I'm building a new Debian box with an AMD Ryzen 3 2200G with a Radeon Vega integrated graphics chip.
From what I read, I needed to have kernel 4.15+, so I upgraded to testing/buster after the initial install. I also installed the linux-firmware-free package, which I thought would include what I need.
However, when I start the machine, it stops with "[drm:amdgpu_pci_probe [amdgpu]] *ERROR* amdgpu requires firmware installed".

I have two questions:
1) Is this the correct package? If so, do I need to perform extra configuration, if not what is the correct package?
2) Since it's not booting, can I boot to some sort of minimal driver recovery state to install the packages or fix the configuration?

Thanks.

Just install firmware-linux-nonfree [1] which pulls a package called firmware-amd-graphics.

Have you tried the rescue mode [2]?

Just a general advice. Maybe you should install stable/stretch and pull the kernel and firmware packages from stretch backports as testing can require a lot of attention.

Have a nice day!

Debian 2018080825.1 firmware is missing a lot of firmware for the latest Vega versions. If that's the case, try getting it from https://people.freedesktop.org/~agd5f/radeon_ucode/ in the vega* and vg20 directories.
The MX Linux repositories: Backports galore! If we don't have something, just ask and we'll try--we like challenges. New packages: Flightgear 2018.2.2, 4.19.5 kernel, wine-staging 4.0~rc1, Pale Moon 28.2.2, Mesa 18.2.6, Midori 7.0

At least it does not miss anything needed for him ;)

That set of firmwares package matches currently available 4.18 kernel in Debian. For new kernel 4.19 once it enter sid/testing there will be another set of firmwares and so on.

That link is for development versions of kernel, regular ones that matches released kernels are on linux-firmware git:

https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/ke ... rmware.git

This is what Debian package ;) Currently that matches 4.19 kernel and his set of firmwares.

And besides he have an Ryzen APU, with Vega graphics indeed, these are called Raven Ridge so firmwares for him are not "vega" but "raven" ones :D

No extra configuration is needed. On updated testing or sid just currently install 4.18 kernel and package 'firmware-amd-graphics' that is all. Once 4.19 enter buster, remember to update firmware-amd-graphics again, with new set of firmwares that matches kernel.

And else firmwares and cpu microcodes, if you need them of course :D
