Description Eugene Shatokhin 2015-10-25 23:27:46 MSK
Hardware:
http://hw.rosalinux.ru/index.php?probe=9b2f2d0488

The laptop has two different AMD GPUs.

When I install the proprietary drivers for AMD graphics on that system with XFdrake, I do the following:

1. Select fglrx in the list of the available drivers.
2. Select "Configure all heads independently".
3. Accept the defaults for all other options in XFdrake. Note that it is not allowed to choose the driver for the second card there, which is OK.

As a result, XFdrake generates xorg.conf where "fglrx" is requested for the first GPU and "radeon" for the second one:

-------------------
<...>
Section "Device"
    Identifier "device1"
    VendorName "Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI]"
    BoardName "Proprietary (fglrx)"
    Driver "fglrx"
    Screen 0
    BusID "PCI:0:1:0"
    Option "DPMS"
EndSection

Section "Device"
    Identifier "device2"
    VendorName "Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI]"
    BoardName "AMD Radeon (radeon/fglrx)"
    Driver "radeon"
    Screen 0
    BusID "PCI:1:0:0"
    Option "DPMS"
EndSection
-------------------

It should specify fglrx for both.
