Notes on Setting Up Ryzen Home Server
I’ve just got a Beelink SER3 AMD Ryzen™ 7 3750H and decided to replace Windows 11 Pro with Debian linux OS. The set up was mostly fine except a few hiccups that I documented below:
- The wifi adapter didn’t work. Beelink seems to have Intel based wifi chipset and it didn’t come by default with Debian. I need to fallback to using the good old ethernet cable during the OS installation. To get the firmware, we can do this:
$ sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list ... deb http://deb.debian.org/debian/ buster main contrib non-free deb http://deb.debian.org/debian/ buster main contrib non-free ...
Also run these after saving the changes.
$ sudo apt update $ sudo apt install firmware-iwlwifi
- I also need to install the AMD GPU firmware as (you guessed it) it didn’t come with Debian either. To do so:
$ git clone git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/firmware/linux-firmware.git $ sudo mkdir /lib/firmware/amdgpu $ sudo cp linux-firmware/amdgpu/* /lib/firmware/amdgpu/ && sudo update-initramfs -k all -u -v
Now it should be in a good state.
