Fedora 11 Lenovo laptop fglrx OR radeonhd discrete graphics
Hello friends of LQ!
I just put Fedora 11 on my Lenovo Thinkpad t400. I selected the integrated (lousy, but Intel (supported)) graphics device in the BIOS, but I really hate the lower performance than the discrete graphics device. However, this device requires fglrx or radeonhd for DRI. RPMFusion has not released an (a)kmod-fglrx, so I can't use that. I have heard radeonhd has some stability issues though, and I don't know how to install. I was wondering how I could completely change my graphics configuration (change chipsets in the BIOS) and get the X Server in Fedora 11 working with the new driver and chipset. Is it a good idea to use radeonhd, or should I wait for the fglrx?
Even then, how would I completely change my graphics configuration so it would work with a different card & driver? I don't want to do a fresh install because I've done a lot of work & customization with the F11.
I don't know anything about radeonhd, so any information about this kind of thing would be useful.
Finally, should I just suck it up and deal with the Intel graphics? Is anything of this sort really worth my time? (I'm willing to spend quite a bit, trust me!)
