Problem Nvidia Optimus Technology linux Support (bumblebee apps)
I had a asus u30jc laptop with dual video NVIDIA OPTIMUS features (Built-in Intel and Nvidia geforce 310M), I just wondering if someone already figure out how the official nvidia driver works, or any tweaks inorder to use the nvidia card, Ive been using this laptop for more than a year now, and i cant figure out or find a tutorials that work (when i try installed any nvidia driver it render a black screen when boot-up, no success in xorg tweaks)..Correct me if im wrong, Basically if no nvidia driver installed on my laptop then my system will resort to use the nouveau driver right, so my question would be,"1.) what video card(Intel or Nvidia) is the system using? 2.) If no nvidia driver installed my geforce 310M cuda is useless right?"
Upon researching this nvidia optimus technology i stumble "Bumblebee" it suppose to switch you between intel and nvidia based on application you want to run.
Does anyone using this Bumblebee and notice some HW effects on application using it, i tried it and see no difference from running in normal and using bumblebee "optirun <application>"
