Unable to Boot | Hybrid Graphics | Intel and Radeon

Postby dark.developer » Thu Feb 21, 2013 20:13

Hi all,

I am new to Sabayon, I am not able to boot from the live DVD from my laptop i.e., HP Pavilion dv6, I think the problem could be the Hybrid Graphics i.e., Intel and Radeon.

Please help, as I really want to install it on my Laptop. Also, provide me with details as per how can I install Radeon graphics driver.


Thanks in advance! Cheers!

When you boot to the menu of the LiveDVD, press F5 and append xdriver=radeon to the end of the kernel boot line then hit Enter. If that doesn't work, try xdriver=intel instead.
