"Now", as in Stretch and/or Sid? I searched in Jessie and failed to discover
any available firmware-amd-graphics. Is another repo besides main and updates
required? I booted same machine to Stretch, and neither package was found.
And, Stretch is also using FBDEV, like OP here, and stuck in 1280x1024 on a
1680x1050 display, with libdrm-radeon1, xserver-xorg-video-ati and
xserver-xorg-video-radeon installed. ???
