I am using Kali linux . My Computer machine has two graphics cards Intel Corporation HD Graphics 5500 and Radeon HD 8670A/ R5 M330.

Intel 5500 is acting as VGA compatible Controller and AMD Radeon R5 M330 is switched off .

Problem is my Kali Linux hangs too much i think these problems is because of dual hybrid cards .

And I think solution is to disable the VGA compatible Controller Intel Corporation HD Graphics 5500 from the Kali Linux .

I need to fix the machine hang issue .

I would also be sharing /var/log/messages for showing you the errors to understand the situation .

    You say you see errors, but I can't see any errors in the log you've posted. – Kusalananda Jun 3 at 12:17

    What are you even using Kali for if dmesg already looks like errors to you? – Panki Jun 3 at 12:33

    @Kusalananda xorg in Debian testing, is crashing in some dual card machines. I suspect this should be relative. Easier using other distro. – Rui F Ribeiro Jun 3 at 12:35
