    Re: AMD/Intel Hybrid Graphics works !

    Hi!
    I'll get my new notebook next week. It's a Samsung Np700Z5A notebbok with Intel® HD Graphics 3000 + AMD Radeon™ HD6750M graphics. I want to install Ubuntu 12.04 (I know the risks of alpha versions). Should it work with xserver-xorg-video-intel of your ppa?
    Thanks for your work!

    Hello, first thank you for putting up these ppas and for your work.
    Here is my experience so far.
    I have a HP dv6 laptop with snd HD3000 / Radeon 6700M with an up to date ubuntu precise installed and the last version of catalyst drivers (12.1).

    Xserver & direct rendering works well using Discrete GPU but I can't get direct rendering to work using Integrated GPU with xf86-video-intel from ubuntu repos (xserver runs though).

    I tried using the packages from xorg-edgers and your ppa but it ended up crashing xserver.
    I also tried compiling and installing xf86-video-intel with the --enable-sna flag against precise xorg but it gave me the same results than with your ppas.

    I cant wait to see some progresses !

    Is there any dynamic switching available?

    I found this article:

    Will SNA support be enabled by default in new 2.18 version or i'm I wrong?

    Hello Alexis,

    Further to your post on the French Ubuntu forum, I am coming here where you originally posted your interesting AMD/Intel Hybrid Graphics works ! subject.
    I will give a try and keep you aware about my results.

    Currently, I am using the acpi_call procedure which is working fine: iGPU=ON and dGPU=OFF with NO AMD drivers at all as it was just nightmares !
    Roughly, my DV7 is running 10 to 15°C lower and the battery time is about double !
    On one of my laptops: HP Pavilion DV7-6070ef CPU i7-2630QM + Switchable Graphics dGPU HD6490M / iGPU HD3000: W7 + Ubuntu 11.10 both in 64-bits.

    ADD: On the HP Pavilion DV6-6000 or DV7-6000 (only Fixed Mode) and DV6-6100 or DV7-6100 series (Fixed or Dynamic Mode setup in BIOS) both with the AMD/INTEL Switchable Graphics, you cannot disable neither iGPU nor dGPU in BIOS which would have been much easier.

    Keep going on and don't give up as a lot of people are more than interested by this hot topic.
    Thanks. Joe

    Just to confirm, this is for both muxed and muxless?

    I didn't make any ppa for the moment, I'm waiting 12.04 to be out. The ppa I gave are for testing, they might be unstable, and they aren't mine.

    It depends if Catalyst 12.1 recognize your card. Check on the internet the compatibility.

    X.org can't do this. Wayland will someday.

    This is the Ubuntu packager of that driver who will decide to either compile it with --enable-sna or not.
