[SOLVED] Where to find amd graphics firmware now

Daedalus/Testing: Just stumbled across a new feature imported from Debian: the package firmware-linux-nonfree is gone, there is an additional entry required in the sources.list to get access: "non-free-firmware" after main contrib non-free.

It looks like all the packages have been renamed somehow, need firmware-amd-graphics, and can't find a replacement. This package no more exists.

Any hints? Searching the repo for parts of this name ends with "Search timed out. Please use a more specific pattern....."

I can see it:

$ apt search amd-graphics

$ cat /etc/apt/sources.list

Have you added the new non-free-firmware component and run apt update? There might be a slight delay with amprolla, the component was only added 2023-01-27.

Re: [SOLVED] Where to find amd graphics firmware now

I guess that change has not been considered by Devuan yet. the sources.list from my test machine reads:

deb http://deb.devuan.org/merged daedalus main contrib non-free non-free-firmware

# apt update works, but apt list does not find any packages from the new repo https://deb.debian.org/debian/pool/non- … e-nonfree/, example:

# apt list firmware*

Re: [SOLVED] Where to find amd graphics firmware now

What does apt policy say? Is the new component listed there?

Re: [SOLVED] Where to find amd graphics firmware now

I guess the merge needs to be adapted/completed.

Re: [SOLVED] Where to find amd graphics firmware now

With todays update session I received several firmware updates. Looks like the merge has been adapted.
