Good afternoon.

For several months I try to run graphics on discrete AMD GPU with proprietary driver under openSUSE 13.1 on my Lenovo IdeaPad G500A (see hardware information below) without any success.

Before installation of AMD driver all works well: glxinfo, glxgears give the proper results. But after installation of the proprietary driver the black screen is obtained. The Xorg.0.log is here.

After deleting xorg.conf file, X starts on Intel GPU without OpenGL effects.

If the "minimal" xorg.conf,

Section "ServerLayout"
             Identifier     "Lout"
EndSection

is created, it is possible to swith to the Intel card properly:

# --aticonfig --px-igpu

After restart X graphics runs properly on the Intel card; glxinfo, glxgears, fglrxinfo give meaningfull results, but after switching to AMD GPU X doesn't really start on it; three abovementioned commands return the same error:

name of display: :0
X Error of failed request: BadRequest (invalid request code or no such operation)
Major opcode of failed request: 153 (GLX)
Minor opcode of failed request: 19 (X_GLXQueryServerString)
Serial number of failed request: 12
Current serial number in output stream: 12

Corresponding Xorg.0.log is here.

Could anybody help me to run X on AMD discrete GPU with proprietary driver? What is wrong in my actions?

Thank you in advance.

Regards,
Natalia

Turn off the Intel GPU in the BIOS if it's possible. Switchable graphics is a headache under linux, both for AMD and nvidia.

Thank you for reply.

The Intel card cannot be turned off in my laptop. This is the main complexity of such (muxless) systems... The ATI card hasn't physical connection to the screen. All have to be organized through the software...

But how?..
