I have a Sony VAIO VPCSE2L9E and want do disable the integrated GPU. I want to install the fglrx packages to use the full GPU power of my AMD Radeon HD 6630M. Here is the link for the technical data of the notebook: Sony homepage for VPCSE

How can I do this? Is there a way to blacklist the integrated GPU on startup or is there an other solution for my problem?

I found a solution on: Follow the Instructions from post #1 (Step1 -3) I downloaded and installed the latest Catalyst package (12.6).

After that, I am able to change the integrated and discrete GPU via ATI Control Center or a single command on terminal!

Additional information can be found on: the corresponding Launchpad bug
