    19.10 on mid 2011 iMac display driver

    Hi
    I just installed 19.10 Ubuntu on mid 2011 iMac with AMD Radeon HD 6750M GPU. Installation went fine but when i check which display driver is used, i see the following:

    $lsmod shows
    i915 1945600 2
    drm_kms_helper 184320 2 radeon,i915
    drm 491520 10 drm_kms_helper,radeon,i915,ttm
    i2c_algo_bit 16384 2 radeon,i915
    video 49152 1 i915


    $lspci -nnvv shows:
    01:00.1 Audio device [0403]: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Turks HDMI Audio [Radeon HD 6500/6600 / 6700M Series] [1002:aa90]

    So does this mean the Intel 915 driver is being used instead of Radeon? Please help me understand.
    Thanks

    nah, it shows those modules are loaded. Also shows that you have audio from hdmi on the radeon card. The radeon module is loaded too, along with several other modules which is normal. Whats the concern and why does it matter? Is your system running ok?

    System is working fine but since i am coming to Gnome after sometime, i felt there is a slight delay in animations.
    Thanks and its good to know that everything's fine.

    Ok i found probably a related issue. I am unable to change brightness of the display. The keyboard keys and the setting applet show that brightness is increased but there is no change in actual brightness.
