View Full Version : [all variants] HP dv6-6093ex graphics, fan speed issues

May 10th, 2011, 09:13 AM
Hello all,

I purchased this laptop which has dual graphics intel/ati 6740m for almost 2 weeks now but whenever I install ati fglrx drivers I cannot use dektop effects nor glxgers (it gives seg. fault) and it seems there is some confusion in GL libraries. Is not catalyst 11.4 supposed to fix this, the dual graphics issue? Because I read it will, I also tried 11.5 but also the same problem. I also tried radeon driver but it only powers the ati on/off where I can use acpi_call for that and does not allow to use the card. Any suggestions for this?

Another problem is the heat generated on the left side of touchpad which I think where the HD is located. So can I adjust the speed of the fans under linux (I use kubuntu 11.04).

Thank you in advance.

How can I force remove radeon from being loaded by the kernel, I blacklisted it but still get loaded. I want this because I cant sleep my machine and it seems radeon is the. Actually I purged the driver and still get loaded.Any help?
