Need help in enabling Switchable Graphic in HP Pavilion Dv6-6017tx

Hello all,

I have installed Opensuse 11.4 64 bit on my new laptop. I have gone through various post in this forum and i am not able to configure switchable graphic in my laptop. i have installed the latest drivers from amd\ati support page.

The problems i am facing is

  1. when i run aticonfig --initial : it is showing the message no supported graphic adapter found
  2. I found that this may be because of the graphic card not enabled but when i searched for the vgaswitchroo in the debug folder, i cannot find it.

Please help me to activate and configure ati graphic card

Thanks in advance

I have the same issue with my Envy 14 Beats Edition, I hope someone release any way to make work this video card :frowning:

Hi Hamerins

From a quick search, I see that your laptop probably has a RadeonHD 6770 chipset. It may be that your HD6xx0 device is not yet officially supported perhaps?

Read these references:
Ubuntu -
Hardware -

Anyway, the good news is that you may be able to force the fglrx driver to load by adding a minimal /etc/X11/xorg.conf like this

Section "Device"
    Identifier  "ATI"
    Driver      "fglrx"

Section "Screen"
    Identifier "Default Screen"
    DefaultDepth     24

You’ll need to restart the X-server when finished for it to take effect CTRL-ALT-Backspace (twice)

Hopefully, that’s all there is to it :slight_smile:
