Citromon,
bumping your topic 3 hrs after your first topic is a bit rushy (the forum rules ask for at least 48hrs)

anyway in topic:
- you don't give any kind of information: mint release? what have you exactly tried? what kind of setup you have?
give us the output of
Code: Select all
inxi -SGx


even with all that i believe it's very hard to make an amd+intel work properly. can you disable the amd card in the bios?

Thanks 4 reply,

I use Mint 14.1 64 bit with Cinnamon DE, I tried install AMD drivers automatically by GUI in SoftwareSources Menu, and by terminal by this manual:
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BinaryDriverHowto/ATI
Manually installing Catalyst 12.6, special case for Intel/AMD hybrid graphics

I install Mint on second partition. Dualboot.

And yet one important thing more: on AMD official website I use driver search, and I toke this link:
http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/l ... linux.aspx

So, there is compatible linux driver only for x86 edition?

you have the intel card fully recognized and working as it should.

my question is:
do you need the amd card? trying to make it work will most certainly break your system and you'll gain very little in openGL power;
there isn't a straightforward guide to make this setup work and furthermore you will be always hostage of amd updates (or lack of);
it's your call but at the moment you have a working system (with a powerful gpu); unless there's a compulsory reason to make the amd card work i would leave it as-is.

Yes, I need this. I want to use powerfull AMD GPU to let my little brother play realistic modern games using steam.
Intel graph core is very week. I even coldn't play normally in minecraft on full hd monitor.

OK, I try:
1. resolve problem with GRUB (gruv customizer dont see a work entry for boot);
2. install 32bit version and try 2 install official driver from site;
3. use this manual
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1930450
on new clear installation, but this is very difficult.

Must be a bug in AMD's driver then, since modern hybrid systems are normally fully supported by AMD (as opposed to NVIDIA). I guess you can't do anything but wait for an AMD driver update to fix this problem.

There is an unofficial bugtracker at http://ati.cchtml.com/. AMD does not have another bug tracker for their graphics drivers.

Also, it seems to me that the laptop brand & model is not mentioned yet in this (long) topic.

Acer aspire 7750zg

On Acer site are windows drivers only.

I publish this bug
http://ati.cchtml.com/show_bug.cgi?id=703

[offtop]
P.S. If Grub customizer dont see my current boot entry, how I can fix it? Now default boot entry - to mint installation with broken x server.
