I've been trying to breath new life into my brothers Lenovo t400, but it has both integrated and discrete graphics (AMD and Intel respectively). When I install any form of Linux, both cards run, making the the whole thing burning hot. I've searched for answers, but most require some command line voodoo after every start; my brother isn't the most technically minded, so I am trying to make it as easy as possible for him. Also, most of what I've found hasn't been update for a few years, so I don't know if its still applicable.
Has there been any new support for switchable graphics lately that I can take advantage of?
