I was delighted to hear that support was finally here for hybrid graphics cards. My Dell 7520 (15r SE) has been useless to me without being able to run linux adequately.
I'm having some troubles though. Here's what I've done so far:
Fresh install of 13.10 + installed all updates
Installed fglrx and fglrx-pxpress and was notified that my AMD card was activated.
Switched to my integrated Intel card (as I have very little need for the extra graphical power) in AMD Control Center
Rebooted, everything works fine and I'm a happy boy.
Rebooted again after some updates (nothing graphics related) and boom - the dreaded low graphics screen... I revert to default settings and reboot
Now I'm back in business though with some issues.
Running any aticonfig option presents me with the following error:
Running aticonfig --initial gives me this:Code:$ aticonfig --pxl No layout section was found in the file: '/etc/X11/xorg.conf'. Please run 'aticonfig --initial' first or modify your configuration file manually and run aticonfig again. aticonfig: parsing the command-line failed
Code:Uninitialised file found, configuring. PowerXpress error: Cannot stat '/usr/lib64/fglrx': No such file or directory Failed to initialize libglx for discrete GPU Using /etc/X11/xorg.conf Saving back-up to /etc/X11/xorg.conf.original-0
So now aticonfig will at least tell me which card is active (the integrated card, as expected). However, AMD control center refuses to open and gives me another error message:
"No AMD graphics driver is installed, or the AMD driver is not functioning properly.Please install the AMD driver appropriate for you AMD hardware, or configure using aticonfig."
Rebooting again and I'm faced with the low graphics screen
