Instructions

1. Switch to the AMD/ATI card in the BIOS. This is just to prevent any crashes when you install xorg-x11-drv-catalyst-legacy.

2. Install xorg-x11-drv-catalyst-legacy just like from the link you posted (https://ask.fedoraproject.org/questi...gacy-chipsets/).

3. Reboot and make sure everything is fine.

4. Clone my git repo:

Code:
sudo yum install git rpmdevtools rpm-build wget
git clone https://github.com/chenxiaolong/Fedora-Hybrid-Graphics.git
cd Fedora-Hybrid-Graphics/
5. Install my patched Catalyst legacy drivers.

Code:
cd xorg-x11-drv-catalyst-legacy/
wget --inet4-only 'http://developer.amd.com.php53-23.ord1-1.websitetestlink.com/wordpress/media/2012/10/xvba-sdk-0.74-404001.tar.gz'
spectool -g xorg-x11-drv-catalyst-legacy.spec
sudo yum-builddep xorg-x11-drv-catalyst-legacy.spec
rpmbuild -bb xorg-x11-drv-catalyst-legacy.spec --define "_sourcedir $(pwd)" --define "_rpmdir $(pwd)"
sudo yum install ./x86_64/xorg-x11-drv-catalyst-legacy-*hybridgfx*.rpm
6. Install the hybrid-detect autoswitcher.

Code:
cd ../hybrid-detect-fglrx/
sudo yum-builddep hybrid-detect-fglrx.spec
rpmbuild -bb hybrid-detect-fglrx.spec --define "_sourcedir $(pwd)" --define "_rpmdir $(pwd)"
sudo yum install ./x86_64/hybrid-detect-fglrx-*.rpm
7. Reboot and enjoy graphics switching!

If anything goes wrong in the future (GUI not starting, etc.), try removing /var/lib/hybrid-detect/last_gfx_boot and then rebooting. That will force hybrid-detect to redetect which graphics card is enabled.

Please let me know if there are any issues
Hi Chen,

Do these changes prevent the packages functioning normally on none hybrid systems?
