 I can't because I don't know how to do this.

 I tried both variants without success.

 Both resulted in something like

     Server terminated with error (1).
     xinit: giving up
     xinit: unable to connect to X server: Conncection refused
     xinit: server error

 Old xserver-xorg-video-radeon 19.0.1-1 still works fine  :-)
