I have a notebook with 2 graphic cards, one being within the haswell processor, one being a dedicated nvidia card running CentOS 6.5. Now I've been googling a bit how to deactivate the nvidia one to reduce battery usage and heat production (thus having no noisy fan blowing), but I haven't been able to succeed so far...
When i first used
it only returned one entry, the integrated one:
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 4th Gen Core Processor Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 06)
I was wondering, why he didnt recognize the nvidia card, but found out that he sees the card, when I accidently ran
01:00.0 3D Controller: NVIDIA Corporation GK106M [GeForce GTX 765M] (rev a1)
So I thought, maybe the drivers need to be installed to get control over the card, so I went ahead and installed the driver using the guide from post 2:
with a bit more googling, I succeded in installing the nvidia drivers, but using
still only shows the intel graphics...
Am i still missing something, or is this even the right path??
