Post Error when enabling graphics acceleration in Debian 10


It seems that the graphics acceleration is not activated, because the videos in VLC run freezing. And every time I start the system, this error appears:

[ 13.207948] [drm] Loading R300 Microcode
[ 13.387375] radeon 0000:01:05.0: firmware: failed to load radeon/R300_cp.bin (-2)

My video card is: Ati Radeon Xpress 200
Sorry for the "weird" English, I'm using a translator.

Hi,

it seems that you should install firmware-amd-graphics to provide radeon/R300_cp.bin
Eg.
Code:
sudo apt install firmware-amd-graphics
For this to work you will need to have the non-free repository enabled. Eg a line like
Code:
http://ftp.debian.org/debian buster/non-free amd64 Packages
in /etc/apt/sources.list or a file in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/

You may find other helpful information (perhaps in your native language?) at the link provided in the error message:
https://wiki.debian.org/Firmware

The repository is giving an error:

Then use one that is.
How about:
Code:
deb http://deb.debian.org/debian buster main contrib non-free
?
P.S. It is best to provide the actual error message.
P.P.S Yes that line I posted in my first reply is clearly wrong... sorry.

I typed "deb http://deb.debian.org/debian buster main contrib non-free" in the sources.list and is now giving this error:

Hi,

deleting line 7 of your /etc/apt/sources.list will likely fix the problem.

However, please post the contents of your /etc/apt/sources.list file so we can check to make sure.

My sources.list:

Hi,

ok last line duplicates the the "main" repo that is already defined on line 7. So to fix it you can remove the last line and add "contrib non-free" to the end of line 7. You should probably add them to the other lines too.

So your sources.list should look like:
Code:
#deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 10.6.0 _Buster_ - Official amd64 NETINST 20200926-10:16]/ buster main

deb http://deb.debian.org/debian/ buster main contrib non-free
deb-src http://deb.debian.org/debian/ buster main contrib non-free

deb http://security.debian.org/debian-security buster/updates main contrib non-free
deb-src http://security.debian.org/debian-security buster/updates main contrib non-free

# buster-updates, previously known as 'volatile'
deb http://deb.debian.org/debian/ buster-updates main contrib non-free
deb-src http://deb.debian.org/debian/ buster-updates main contrib non-free

# This system was installed using small removable media
# (e.g. netinst, live or single CD). The matching "deb cdrom"
# entries were disabled at the end of the installation process.
# For information about how to configure apt package sources,
# see the sources.list(5) manual.
Then run
Code:
sudo apt update
sudo apt install firmware-amd-graphics

It worked, the graphics acceleration is working correctly.

Is this message normal at system startup?

From a quick google search it seems like it may be a bios bug and that it is not really a problem.
