Description hantarex 2012-06-26 12:01:39 CDT
On a multi GPU laptop (Intel i7+AMD 6770M) if the command in the summary is used when the discrete GPU is inactive it hangs the terminal and eats a whole CPU core indefinitely.

It should exit with an error saying it can't read the value just like for example the following command does.

aticonfig --pplib-cmd "get fanspeed 0"
