In that case, it might just be an error from my part. I am trying to get HDMI audio to work and while doing that, people helping me on IRC told me that these two lines mean that the problem comes from missing firmware. I checked and the fact is that I have the firmware on my filesystem, however it seems that the radeon driver is loaded early so as to get KMS working correctly and therefore I looked at initramfs. Comparing my initramfs with the one of someone with a similar setting (radeon driver / debian sid / update-initramfs generated initramfs) has shown one main difference: he has the radeon firmware in his initramfs and I don't. so I assumed this might be the reason for the problem. I'm sorry if I'm mistaken and wasting your time. Could you provide me some test that I could run to check for sure that the driver is loaded after the root FS has been mounted. Thank you
