Default Re: Hybrid power support on Linux?

Can you submit, if you haven't done it already, your DSDT.dsl file as an attachment to this bug report?

To compile your DSDT information, install if you haven't already the acpidump and iasl tools:

sudo apt-get install acpidump iasl

Then run the following commands:

sudo acpidump > acpidump.txt
sudo acpixtract acpidump.txt
iasl -d DSDT.dat
ls -l DSDT.dsl

This will create a DSDT.dsl file that you can attach to the bug report. This information will allow the developers to fully implement the hybrid graphics features for Linux.

Finally, for posting the information in the bug report, you can check the laptop and graphics card model identifiers with these commands:

sudo dmidecode -s system-product-name
sudo dmidecode -s system-version
lspci -vnnn | perl -lne 'print if /^\d+\:.+(\[\S+\:\S+\])/' | grep VGA

Thanks for your help!

As it is, I can only use the integrated GPU under Linux...the nice 210m with 1/2 gig of memory is sitting powered off, nothing I can do. It's miserable.
