I bough a Siemens Celsius H210 laptop with Mobility FireGL T2.
When I boot it up it says that firmware for the GPU is missing.
Code: Select all
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] RV350/M10 GL [Mobility FireGL T2] (rev 80)
When I install the package firmware-amd-graphics, the system stops working after a restart. The XServer doesn't start anymore and the virtual consoles (Ctrl+Alt+Fx) also don't work anymore.
Code: Select all

I have to boot into recovery mode and the uninstall that packages, run update-initramfs and update-grub.
Then I can properly operate the OS.
Another problem I link with that is the sleep problem. If I put the laptop into sleep it freezes after waking it up.
It restarts after a minute.
I can reproduce that if you need kernel logs. I also found the logs from the first bootup to now, if this might be helpful.
