Hi David,

upstream kernels currently have only headless support. We're still
working on getting our display driver accepted upstream but in the
meantime you can compile it yourself from
https://cgit.freedesktop.org/~agd5f/linux/?h=amd-staging-4.12. With this
you should have no issues booting to desktop with whatever displays you got.

As for the rest of our driver Alex can probably give you a better
picture but I imagine pretty much everything should be working on Vega
on that tree.
