Hi to everyone!! This is my first post on this forum but I'm not a total noob. I use Ubuntu for 5 years but never I've found myself in a similar situation. On 23 Dec. I bought a new laptop, a TOSHIBA L850-1PD (http://it.computers.toshiba-europe.c...0-1PD/1142961/ - I'm forced to post italian site), good price (600€) and good specs for me (Intel i7 3630QM+AMD Radeon HD7670M w/ 2GB VRAM - up to 16 GB RAM). I was very happy! I was. I realized wrong purchase when I read that TOSHIBA laptops are out from official AMD support (look at the bottom on http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownloa...b_win7-64.aspx) and when I tried to install Ubuntu 12.10. It installs without any issue but after the reboot... First, there's no way to change brightness (poor battery) but, more important, fglrx simply doesn't work. I've tried to install from software sources, from terminal, to build manually debs but nothing to do. I install fglrx, run amdconfig --initial -f, but after reboot I get only black screen, no LDM. So I try to run startx but I've got always this warning:
(WW) fglrx: No matching Device section for instance (BusID PCI:0@1:0:1) found
but for lspci this is HDMI output !!!
Looking into Xorg's log (first&second images) there are some errors regarding VBIOS reading. CCC on Win8 shows me a VBIOS correctly (third image), but GPU-Z can't (fourth image), likewise Ubuntu. Searching on the web, I see a lot of people that are running fglrx on toshiba laptops without issues.
Thank you in advance!!!
