Will Switching graphics be supported in Ubuntu in the near Future ? I have a Hp dv6 with an Ati 5650 , but it only get reconiced as a Ati 4200, that means really bad performance. I read that this is beacuse this computer uses Switching graphics and this is not supported in ubuntu. Any hope that this will be fixed ?
