Does this apply to notebooks with soft switch like the Sony Serie Z ? From other posts it looks like this wonderful piece of machinery is totally unusable under linux just because of this.

Can you at least provide us a mean or even a clue to select a GPU or the other at boot time ? (I really really don't care about switching it live, I just want to have an usable system).

I upgraded my Sony SZ perfectly running under gentoo with both GPUs with a 2400 euros Sony Z just to discover that it is totally unusable because it has a software switch with no spec released with it !

If you don't want to support any driver for it, fine, but then please release the spec (and please don't call that IP, your main competitor does it too).

Thanks a lot in advance.
