I boot two slackware64s on the laptop, one using the fglrx driver and one using the radeon driver. I was just trying to see if the MDIS/MIGD commands would work, never tryed them before now. If it wasn't for the fact that the laptop isn't very old I would have already popped the hood to see what the insides looked like. As much as I would like to see how everything is tied to together, I've decided against it. I'm a fan of the saying "if it ain't broke, don't fix it".

Probably you should see error messages in the kernel logs when trying to see these commands, see /usr/src/linux/drivers/gpu/vga/vga_switcheroo.c

Mine is appended (in kernel 3.2.29 now in -current).
