My computer has an AMD Ryzen 2500 with a Raven Ridge GPU (Vega 8). Since
linux-libre version 5.7.2, I have not been able to boot. I am still able
to do it with 5.6.12.
In the past (including 5.6.12), the screen would go blank (completely
dark) and I would be able to type-in my password (without seeing
anything on the screen) to unlock the hard-drive (LVM on cryptsetup).
Now, the keyboard is unresponsive, and I never get to see my operating
system (Parabola GNU/Linux).
I am afraid that I won't be able to use my system at some point at this
rate. My ability to use linux-libre with this computer is worse every
year (I understand that this may have to do with non-free firmware and
drivers). Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

If I add =nomodeset=, I am able to partially see 2 or three lines of
the booting process. After that, the rest is lost, and I don't know how
far the process gets
- mkinitcpio.conf ::
- HOOKS=("base" "udev" "keyboard" "keymap" "autodetect" "modconf"
"block" "consolefont" "encrypt" "lvm2" "resume" "filesystems" "fsck"
- cryptsetup :: 2.3.3-1
I would very much like to change my computer to something which respects
my freedom, but it's not like I am financially able to do that.
Can you please help me to boot with the newer versions of linux-libre?
