"FAILED: Intel" on inxi -G output

Postby zabeel on Sat Nov 24, 2012 1:29 pm

Hi,

I installed Linux Mint 14 Cinnamon on my laptop which has both ATI (Robson CE) and Intel graphics cards. When I checked the output of "inxi -G" command, it shows the following result
Graphics: Card-1: Intel Core Processor Integrated Graphics Controller
Card-2: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] nee ATI Robson CE [AMD Radeon HD 6300 Series]
X.Org: 1.13.0 drivers: ati,radeon (unloaded: fbdev,vesa) FAILED: intel Resolution: 1366x768@60.0hz
GLX Renderer: Mesa DRI Intel Ironlake Mobile GLX Version: 2.1 Mesa 9.0



Which driver does it show as failed - Intel or ATI? And what should be my next step?

Thanks in advance!

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

The failed text is often wrong, that's a bug in Mint 14's inxi. The GLX Renderer is more reliable, and it shows that Intel graphics is working.

To use your ATI GPU you can install the ATI/AMD graphics driver from the last tab of Software Sources, which is in the menu.

Thanks Albert!

I would like to ask another question related to this. When I look into the Additional Drivers under Software Sources, I see that the open source driver for ATI was installed. I do not want to install the proprietary drivers as my card is not supported yet. I would like to know how to enable ATI as my default graphics card and use Intel only when I'm on battery.

Thanks in Advance...

It's fine to install the ATI/AMD proprietary driver on this hardware. You will need that driver anyway if you want to switch, since I don't think a laptop with 6000 series hardware has a mux for manually switching the GPUs.
With the driver installed you'll be able to configure in Catalyst Control Center which GPU you want to use.
