Asus F550DP black screen afer installation, dual graphics

Postby Knatterton on Sat Apr 05, 2014 5:57 pm

Hey guys,

I tried to install Linux Mint DE 16 64bit on a Asus F550DP with dual graphics Radeon HD 8550G and Radeon HD 8670M. But I am stuck with graphics drivers and would appreciate, if you have any ideas to solve the problem!
Installation of LMDE was without any complications, but now if I enter my passwort to Login, just a black screen with pointer appears. After using the keyboard, there a a couple of informations about Xserver crash and also deactivation of mdm. I tried different boot option like nomodeset, xforcevesa, acpi=off, acpi_backlight=vendor, without any working solution.

Code: Select all
inxi -G

offers fglrx as driver, but I also tested radeon by edition the xorg.conf file and restarting.

What do I need to do, to get mdm running and to configure both graphics in the right order to allow a normal use?
Thank you in advance for your help.
