try this, not sure if glxinfo gets it's vendor id from that or not though, or what good it would do to change it.

Code: Select all
grep -i rs880 /lib/udev/hwdb.d/20-pci-vendor-model.hwdb

the file /lib/udev/hwdb.d/60-evdev.hwdb has an entry on how to add something to the hwdb, I assume you can use the same method to override one of the entries but not sure.
