IntroductionSo, you've got an AMD GPU, and you want to use it on Debian Stretch. Well, you're actually in luck.
Installing the open source AMD drivers on Debian Stretch may just be the easiest and simplest install process in the history of Linux graphics drivers.
Anyone who tried to install the open source AMDGPU drivers when they first launched alongside AMD's Polaris cards will tell you that the process is long and painful, and they were right.
Now, all of the packages required have entered the mainstream, and most are actually installed by default with your Debian Stretch installation.

IntroductionSteam is easily the most popular PC gaming client available today. Installing it on Debian Stretch is very easy, especially considering Debian is the basis for Valve's SteamOS. Steam is available in Stretch's repositories, but there are a couple of steps that you need to take in order to ensure that it works right.
Before you do anything, make sure that you have your graphics drivers installed and up-to-date. It is also important that you have 32-bit support enabled. The Steam client for Linux only supports 32-bit, so it won't work at all if you don't.
Enable The ReposSteam is proprietary, and the games it manages are too. As a result, you need to enable Debian's
non-freerepository. To do so, open up

IntroductionNVIDIA graphics cards have long been the favorite for Linux gamers.
Their proprietary drivers have been very well supported for the last few years, and they continue to be.
The open source Nouveau drivers have been far less reliable, mostly due to NVIDIA's refusal to work with the open source community.
Either way, though, the drivers are available to install on Debian Stretch.
Open SourceFor the most part, when you install Debian Stretch, the Nouveau drivers will also be installed.
However, one exception here is the firmware blobs needed for the drivers to reach their full potential.
Before you continue, you should make sure that your graphics card is supported by Nouveau.
Since the Nouveau driver has to be reverse engineered, it tends to lag behind graphics card releases.
You can check your card's support at
