I have AMD/Intel hybrid graphics. I have been using only Intel GPU when AMD Proprietary crashed X.Org. Now i'm having installed Catalyst and i've recognized higher power usage.

In both AMD/Intel and Intel only solutions i have blacklisted radeon module.

For Intel only solution my rc.local looks:

modprobe radeon
echo OFF > /sys/kernel/debug/vgaswitcheroo/switch

And for AMD/Intel hybrid solution i have different xorg.conf configured via aticonfig.

So i'd like to have rc_intel.local,rc_amd.local, xorg_intel.conf, xorg_amd.conf and switch between them via different grub menu entries.

Is it possible?

Sorry for my english

Yes, parameters passed to the kernel command line (editable in your bootloader's configs) end up on /proc/cmdline. Just parse it for your keywords.

case "$(< /proc/cmdline)" in
  *keyword*)do something;;
  *another*)do another;;
esac
