    Hello all,

    I have AMD R7 M445 and intel GPUs I install from Yast xf86-video-amdgpu and when I type sudo lspci -nnk |grep -A3 VGA
    output is:
    Code:
    sudo lspci -nnk |grep -A3 VGA
    [sudo] password for root:

    hi,

    on the last check made, only one type of card can be used per opensuse install

    if the amd card is to be use, the intel card has to be disabled

    if the intel card is part of the mainboard, disable it in the bios,
    otherwise physically remove it

    there are some laptops where you can't disable intel gpu even if they have dedicated graphics card....
