    Thumbs down Blinking screens when dual with AMD fglrx

    Hi there guys.

    I have tried the fglrx drivers on openSUSE 12.3 in a way to take advantage of the AMD gpu (RadeonHD 6770M). The installation was through the geeko repo without errors and/or warnings (http://geeko.ioda.net/mirror/ati/openSUSE_12.3).

    After rebooting the first impression I have is that the amd control panel is more simple and maybe because it doesn't have display management options, therefore I tried using the KDE screen preferences to extend my desktop and here comes the problem. Once I click on "apply" my monitor and my laptop screen start to blink. It actually shows the extended desktop.

    After this I tried a new configuration using suggested settings which didn't make any difference:
    Code:
    amdconfig --initial -f
    amdconfig --set-pcs-str="DDX,EnableRandR12,FALSE"
    What would you suggest me to try guys?

    By the way I´ve got a two GPUs HP dv6 (Intel or AMD).

    Not sure, in my case you see the desktop in dual with an intermittent blink which seems to happen on every desktop (video) "event".
