Devuan with AMD integrated graphics

I want to switch from Ubuntu to Devuan. The problem is that last time I attempted doing this, my graphics drivers weren't working, making my system pretty slow at times. I've had problems with the live installer as well, where it crashed whenever I started the install application. Oh yeah, I also don't feel like trying hard to install drivers because last time I did so, my entire system was ruined.


tldr: works fine on a virtual machine, but terrible on hardware for me. help.

Re: Devuan with AMD integrated graphics

What sort of graphics card have you got? Or if you are using onboard graphics what sort of CPU is it?

AMD graphics cards need firmware:

# apt install firmware-amd-graphics
