Hello,

I'm running a Debian Sib installation on a Dell Latitude E6540 laptop.

It has a 8790M card :

# lspci | grep VGA
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 4th Gen Core Processor Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 06)
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Mars XTX [Radeon HD 8790M]

I have read (http://support.amd.com/us/kbarticles/Pages/AMDCatalyst13-8LINBetaDriver.aspx) that HD 8700 Series were supported but when I run the installer I get a popup error window that says it is not.

Opensource drivers do not work at all either for my hardware.

I cannot get dual screen work correctly.

Could someone help me ?

Best regards,

Fred

I think that the model number in that list is for er... non-mobility HD 8700 cards? Because, mobility cards are at the bottom, and 8xxx are not listed as supported. Btw, I have the same problem :/

Oh yes, you are absolutely right.

I really hope these cards will be supported soon

Best regards,
