Sorry, i still haven't tried to find a way - but if you're running a muxless system, the official amd fglrx driver should work for you. (no guarantees, it might destroy your whole opengl setup)

sadly, my bios was edited by a vaio member, it only has two settings: HPE 64-bit timer and time :( when i have some spare time left, i'll try and switch the gpu with an init script, i heard that might be more successful.

as far as i knew, combined systems are the ones which can display discrete-rendered windows side-by-side to integrated rendered windows. my pc has a mux (when on windows, switching takes some time and the display flickers, so i guess i can't have both at the same time), so my system should be able to work with vgaswitcheroo for the other system: bumblebee works for dynamically enabling and drawing single windows with the discrete card (systems like nvidia optimus) i'm no sure about the terminology with muxless/muxed, though

i915: switched on fbcon: Remapping primary device, fb1, to tty1-63 radeon: switched off i have no idea what ATPX: AE_NOT_FOUND means, but it seems to be the primary issue running on 3.2.0-30-generic x86_64

the only reason i switched to precise was the 3.2 kernel -- i wanted it built with ureadahead support and the i915 deep-sleep fix all the kernel.ubuntu.com ones didn't have everything, but the vanilla ones do - dies the repository you linked to have those builtin? btw: the procedure you're describing doesn't seem to work for me... maybe with 3.4...
