So, there are 2 GPUs in my laptop. An Intel one, and an ATI one. The Intel comes with a nice open-source driver, which works OOTB. The ATI one needs the proprietary driver, to function properly (like having an accelerated Chrome.)
I switch between the cards, from the BIOS. Nope, I don't want or need gpu_switcheroo.
So. If I install
fglrx (prop. ATI driver), it'll need an
aticonfig --initial to get the system, to use the new proprietary driver.
But how could I tell my system, to use the open-source Intel, when I boot my Intel card, and to use the proprietary fglrx, when I boot the ATI one. Windows does this with ease. If the Intel gets loaded, an error message pops up (no ATI device found)... but that's it. It works perfectly. How could I do this under Linux?
