Hi,
I have a Radeon HD 6310 card in my laptop.
So I tried to follow the instruction found here.

On the "Kernel->General" it says to turn on:

Code:

        [*] Enable modesetting on radeon by default


but that option is nowhere to be found. I tried to do a search by typing "/", but didn't find anything with that prompt.

I activated other 2 options there and turned on "Support for frame buffer devices ->ATI Radeon display support" and also turned on "DDC/I2C for ATI Radeon support" and "Support for backlight control" and moved on.

Next I turned on "Device Drivers -> Generic Driver Options -> Userspace firmware loading support", "Device Drivers -> Generic Driver Options -> Include in-kernel firmware blobs in kernel binary", entered "radeon/PALM_me.bin" for the firmware and tried to re-build the kernel.

Make failed with the error "No rule to build "radeon/PALM_me.bin".

Any idea what I did wrong?

Thank you.

Code:
CONFIG_EXTRA_FIRMWARE_DIR="/lib/firmware"
CONFIG_EXTRA_FIRMWARE="radeon/PALM_me.bin radeon/PALM_pfp.bin radeon/SUMO_uvd.bin radeon/SUMO_rlc.bin"
CONFIG_DRM_RADEON=y

Disable all other framebuffer options, they're obsolete.

Hi,
My kernel config file can be seen here: https://paste.pound-python.org/show/w8IVmulAtV6DEL81bwaf/.

And with it I still get following:

[quote]
No rule to make target /lib/firmware/radeon/PALM_me.bin, needed by firmware/radeon/PALM_me.bin.gen.o
[/code]

Thank you.

Hi,
No.
I thought I don't need it for kernel built-in.

Will install now.

Thank you.

Hi,
OK, I installed linux-firmware and kernel compiled successfully.
But I still don't have a framebuffer on the Terminal.

Thank you.

ONEEYEMAN,

Are you using the kernel you think you are?

NeddySeagoon,
Yes, you are correct. I set "noauto" in /etc.fstab for the boot partition and didn't mount it prior to kernel installing.

Thank you.
