I have a sony VPCZ12 laptop. It has those dual video cards that are a pain to get working in linux. The new 2.6.35 kernel is supposed to support that with the vga_switcheroo module which is supposed to be located in /sys/kernel/debug on >2.6.35.
The problem is that when I boot my laptop, it freezes at a blackscreen unless I boot with options
i915.nomodeset=0. It won't boot into X, but I can get to a terminal which is fine. But then vga_switcheroo isn't in
Is this a ubuntu bug on how the kernel is compiled? Or is it because I have to boot with
The livecd boots into X just fine, but I've never found a way to get X working on the installation. There's a lot of information about linux on the z12 but most of it is either outdated, doesn't work, or just plain doesn't make any sense
