Arch Linux : Cannot seem to get bumblebee running
 
Hi There,
I'm running Archlinux on a Dell XPS 15, which has an intel and a nvidea graphic card with optimus.
I read about installing Bumblebee from the AUR packages, but when i try to run it, i get this error:

Code:

[kiran@DARKLOADER ~]$ sudo bumblebeed
libkmod: index_mm_open: open(/lib/modules/3.2.1-1-ARCH/modules.dep.bin, O_RDONLY|O_CLOEXEC): No such file or directory
libkmod: kmod_search_moddep: could not open moddep file '/lib/modules/3.2.1-1-ARCH/modules.dep.bin'
[ERROR]Module bbswitch could not be loaded (timeout?)
[WARN]No switching method available. The dedicated card will always be on.
[ERROR]Invalid configuration: no driver configured.

does someone has an idea how to fix this?

Check this out, it maybe helpful.

Two issues to look out for

-- Permision

-- Package -- There are a few different versions in the AUR depending on your hardware. ( nvidia-bumblebee sounds like what you want)

Hope this helps.
