    Can you try the Catalyst driver on a supported distro first, maybe start with Ubuntu 12.04 ?

    EDIT - I'm guessing you're talking about the Catalyst legacy driver because that's what you quoted, but if I guessed wrong please reply back. I read your post a few times and wasn't sure if you were talking about latest Catalyst, legacy Catalyst or open source drivers.

      Yes, I talking about the Catalyst Legacy that epic fail, with no indication of the cause.

      And about the lack of PM support of open source drivers.

      Finally, I apologize for the words a little hot, but by some days I struggle to make this laptop to work again (with Catalyst). And I failing...

        They just package the latest.

        And they don't package Catalyst at all. It's up to community repos to provide packages, and also provide packages of older versions of X when Catalyst lags behind in support. But these repos do already contain 12.6-legacy packages.

          Hello, as i know you somehow related to AMD, i have some suggestion : how about make control mem/gpu clock via kernel args(something like radeon_low_profile=n / radeon_mid_profile=n) ? As i can see a lot of people have invalid profiles info and even this temp solution will work for them. Of course with some foolproof.
          I know i should send suggestions to mailing lists, but i dont know in which one

            dri-devel handles the kernel-side.

              Umm...you do realize you can use the built-in vgaswitcheroo to switch between integrated and discrete cards for most AMD GPUs, right? It should work finely; I have a similar working setup on my HP dv7 with Fedora 17...
