[HP Pavilion] ATI Radeon HD 5650 and vga_switcheroo
I bought HP Pavilion dv6-3125er. There are two video cards: integrated Intel and discrete ATI Radeon:
Can you advice me something? I'd like to use fglrx, but there's no way to use switcheroo in this case. And I so need it to switch to ATI card.
//Excuse me for my broken English please. :}
Unfortunately, I do not believe it's possible.
I'm in the same boat and have been doing a lot of research and googling.
vgaswitcheroo seems to be the best choice with the open source drivers. The proprietary drivers are supposed to have the switching capability but causes some problems.
The most complete I've seen is a vga_switcheroo based one with a bunch of scripts to facilitate the switching and reporting of which card is active.
I'm still experimenting myself so I'm sorry I can't provide a complete answer.
