Hi, I have notebook Inpiron14z and I'm with a doubt about the video driver, I've been reading about it and it seems that the ATI driver support fgrlx not of my plate.

Which driver should I use? And there's how to disable the video onboad?

Code: Select all

sabayon14z jcezar # lspci | grep VGA
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 3rd Gen Core processor Graphics Controller (rev 09)
02:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] nee ATI Thames [Radeon 7500M/7600M Series]

See in BIOS (or UEFI?) options if you can disable Intel GPU.
I think you can then use fglrx drivers when using AMD/ATI GPU.
