Comment 0 for bug 1068404

After installing the latest fglrx-updates package on Ubuntu 12.10 (fglrx-updates_9.000-0ubuntu3_amd64) I have the same issue that was present before AMD fixed switchable graphics on PowerXpress 4.0 cards (such as my HD 6470M coupled with the intel HD Graphics 3000 of my intel Core i5-2430M). Here is the Xorg log:

The system is a Hp g6-1279sl notebook with a discrete AMD HD 6470M card and an Intel Core i5-2430M CPU with Intel HD graphics 3000. I'm running Ubuntu 12.10 desktop 64 bit version. The driver (both the 12.9 beta on AMD site and the 12-9 beta driver from the Quantal Quetzal fglrx-installer-updates repository) worked correctly on Ubuntu 12.4.1 64-bit.
