    Default select ati card in hybrid setup


    I have a hp pavilion dv6-6093ex which has i5 2410m CPU and ati 6740m GPU, so it's a hybrid graphics laptop. Since I bought it almost a month now and I am trying to enable the ati card but with no success.

    I am running openSuSE 11.4 64bit with kernel 2.6.39-30-vanilla because the stock kernel does not have vga_switchroo (or I could not find it). I tried vga_switchroo after being in init 3 then issue:
    PHP Code:
    echo "DDIS" >> /sys/kernel/debug/vgaswitchroo/switch 
    but the computer hangs and I have to hold power button to shut it down.

    I also tried fglrx 11.5 but it says no supported adapter exists, so my only hope is to enable vga_switchroo. Is there a way to use the ati card in my system.

    Does this card, ati 6740m, exist? because in Windows it says it's 6770m.

    Thank in advance
