I have upgraded my Debian to latest version on the kernel version 3.16.0-4-amd64. Update went fine. After that I decided to upgrade linux kernel version to the latest one supported by Debian 10 - 4.19.0-5-amd64. After reboot my X-server didn't get up and in logs when system starting I see an error like that radeon 0000:01:00.0 failed VCE resume (-110)

Laptom model: Samsung 300E5V/300E4EV/270E5EV/270E4EV/2470EV/2470EE

After sysmtem start I get in command line interface. When try to execute startx I see then same error about radeon and message from x-server:

enter image description here

$lspci | grep VGA

radeon failed VCE resume (-110)
VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 3rd Gen Core processor Graphics Controller(rev 09)

Here is ls -pci log and log from Xorg.0.log file.

Could you help me please fix an issue and get my desktop up again?

Here is a solution that helped me:

  1. Add non-AMD drivers into the blacklist in file /etc/modprobe.d/radeon.conf:
blacklist radeon
  1. Put into /etc/modprobe.d/amdgpu.conf the following statements:
options amdgpu si_support=1
options amdgpu cik_support=1

After that, the error message disappeared.
