Hi,
After I tried manipulating my radeon HD 4000 series, I suddenly encountered this 2 min delay in booting. I am currently using the open source driver for the graphic card, at least I think so. I searched the forum for the problem but couldn't find out how to resolve this problem.

You need firmware to be loaded for that chip.

I have a mobile 4200 series GPU and fixed the delay by emergng radeon-ucode and going into the kernel and entering the blobs :

radeon/R600_rlc.bin radeon/R700_rlc.bin

Device Drivers --->
Generic Driver Options --->

[*] Include in-kernel firmware blobs in kernel binary
(radeon/R600_rlc.bin radeon/R700_rlc.bin)

rebuild kernel and reboot.

If the firmware came with the kernel sources, then use the default firmware directory as chosen by the kernel configuration system. If you installed the firmware separately, you need to set CONFIG_EXTRA_FIRMWARE_DIR to the directory where the firmware was installed.
