    Muxless intel+AMD HD 7600M does not work (Ubuntu 14.04)




      I have Ubuntu 14.04 installed with latest 14.6 Beta drivers (linux-amd-catalyst-14.6-beta-v1.0-jul11.zip) and I have set the discrete GPU to be active:


      $ amdconfig --pxl        

      PowerXpress: Discrete GPU is active (High-Performance mode)


      Unfortunately, I get this message in the Xorg log:


      [   126.252] (--) fglrx(0): Chipset: "AMD Radeon HD 7600M Series" (Chipset = 0x6840)

      [   126.252] (--) fglrx(0): (PciSubVendor = 0x1028, PciSubDevice = 0x056e)

      [   126.252] (==) fglrx(0): board vendor info: third party graphics adapter - NOT original AMD

      [   126.262] (II) UnloadModule: "fglrx"


      (full log attached) This I believe indicates that switching to the discrete system did not work out, and X gave up. Can you tell me what kind of information you need to debug this and how can I help? I have a Dell Vostro 3560 that is apparently a so-called MUX-less system, i.e. I cannot choose in the BIOS which GPU is active, and I am suppose to choose that using "amdconfig --px-command" which I did as shown above.


      Thanks for the help,
