Hi all, I'm new on Fedora. I installed Fedora 28 on my laptop HP Pavilion DV7 and I just installed Flightgear but performace is very bad. This is because the active graphic card is Intel integrated graphic card. I search on the web but don't understand how to switch to radeo card. Some info about the config :

`# lspci | grep VGA

00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 2nd Generation Core Processor Family Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 09)

01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Whistler [Radeon HD 6730M/6770M/7690M XT]

'# cat /sys/kernel/debug/vgaswitcheroo/switch

0:DIS: :DynOff:0000:01:00.0


Thanks for your help.

Hi, Finally I've found the solution there :Prime Fedora Documentation in French It was really simple. I just created a launcher by editing a script containing :

xrandr --setprovideroffloadsink 1 0
DRI_PRIME=1 fgfs

Then start it in a terminal or directly from the desk. No need to install anything, Fedora installation had installed all necessary drivers and openGL/openCL libraries, just I installed clinfo to have informations. It works fine. Thanks for your answer.
