so, I tried a clean install of 16.04 LTS, is there any way to find out whether my AMD graphics card is fully supported by the driver ? Cuz my screen is flickering

I'm not talking gaming, just the open source driver that is replacing the fglrx driver. I'm using a hybrid Intel/AMD system.

Here's my card:

00:02.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: Intel Corporation 2nd Generation Core Processor Family Integrated Graphics Controller [8086:0126] (rev 09)
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Seymour [Radeon HD 6400M/7400M Series] [1002:6760] (rev ff)
  • See if you can disable the discrete graphics card (the AMD one) in BIOS. That'll make sure the Intel card is being used, which should work better in this case. – TheWanderer Jul 3 '16 at 3:44
  • Did that. Same issue happens – Mohammed Hesain Jul 5 '16 at 13:06
  • check askubuntu.com/q/766725/329036 – MycrofD Sep 8 '16 at 5:27

Using the OS radeon driver make sure you pass nomodeset to the kernel boot parameters.
