AMD Graphics

The opensource AMDGPU drivers work correctly with no special modification.

Fingerprint Reader

Fingerprint sensor 06cb:00bd is not supported by fprint right now. There is some talk of an upcoming driver.[1][2]

Backlight

Backlight works correctly by manipulating the values, between 0-255, inside /sys/class/backlight/amdgpu_bl0/brightness or using a backlight managing utility.

systemd-backlight@backlight:acpi_video0.service requires masking as it seems to be triggered and fails on boot.

Smartcard Reader

Seems to work and read cards. Following instructions from smartcards.
