Well, it's me again from yesterday, so i did a minimal debian install and i think i did what the debian site said regarding the graphic drivers for ati but here's the deal:
xrandr --listproviders only shows the intel provider, the dedicates amd gpu [RX 550] is not shown. (Also on doing lspci it is shown as a Display controller instead of vga adapter.)
+ the laptop heats a lot too
Any idea regarding what should i do? Or maybe where do i get help?
Off topic question: What is the difference between vga adapter and display controller??
I am planning on switching to debian, (one of the distros on my "distros-to-try-before-i-die" list.) I downloaded the net install image, what i wanna know is that, what is the average size of the downloads for a minimal.install? By minimal I mean just the bare bones debian with the drivers, python, gcc, emacs, and well i3? Can i pull it off under a gig? (Data limit on my network)9
