The way from these page is more interesting for me.
If the video system could work like in win system it will be perfect.
So today I have no time for experiments. Thiese I will try to do tomorrow.
If I will have a success I will post here.......

Im having same issue with Optimus Nvidia card too ( My Laptop is Asus R500v Nvidia card is GT610M). I was trying to install Bumblebee but It did not help.

I am also having issue with laptop frozen as well after running for a while, which I think graphic card is causing issue. Switching to vesa (thanks to Didier Spaier) seems to solve freezing issue, but vmware is very sluggish to run.

At the moment I have to switch back to Windows and run Slackware as Virtual Machine. Just waiting for solution to switch back to Slackware as my main OS.

Unless you get bumblebee installed and working, or have a BIOS switch to force the nVidia GPU/disable the intel video chip, installing the nVidia driver will just break 'x' on 99%+ of optimus laptops.

EeePC-1015PN, like the link says, is a odd model. Because it comes with win7 starter (which doesnt support optimus) it can run as switchable graphics (very non-standard for optimus)

Even with bumblebee, it still wont work same way it does in windows.

If reinstalling mesa, xorg-server and libdrm (like Didier Spaier sugested) didnt get you back to the the way the things ran before you started changinjg things, I'd reinstall and start again.

I know, people say that you can fix anything with linux, but sometimes its easier to take the 'reinstall the OS' method known and loved by windows users. It might not seem that elegant a solution, but sometimes its better to just start again rather than trying to fix problems.....

I'm using dualbot system (win/linux). I don't wont to brake these parameters, as I'm using windows on these laptop too, and I don't want to reinstall windows too.

As long as you don't put lilo's boot loader in the master boot record but in Slackware root partition, reinstalling Slackware shouldn't put Windows at risk.

If you want, you can post output of "fdisk -l" (typed as root) and "cat /etc/fstab". With that information we can give you some guidance on how to reinstall Slackware safely.

ok, now I'm reinstalling Slackware and then I will try to install bumblebe again... as I remembered both of these videocards was working, they worked good, but they used a lot of power and the battery life was very small...

I have just reinstalled Slackware and then installed bubblebee. But both of videocards still working. I cannot switch or configure nvidea card and cannot use bubblebee, it brings another error
Code:
root@darkstar:~# optirun nvidia-settings -c
[ERROR]The Bumblebee daemon has not been started yet or the socket path /var/run/bumblebee.socket was incorrect.
[ERROR]Could not connect to bumblebee daemon - is it running?

How did you install Bumblebee?

As far as the other threads about bumblebee can tell, the best link to do that is this one.

You can try with nouveau, no need to install again the closed source nVidia drivers.

I have read this here:
Quote:
In this case, you will need to move the file /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf to somewhere else. Restart the bumblebeed daemon, and it should work. Credit for this goes to Lekensteyn on #bumblebee at freenode.net


It could be also necessary to comment the driver line in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-monitor.conf.

That's normal, as nvidia-settings is part of the nVidia closed source driver, which you didn't (re)install.

optirun is a "front-end" to the command which follows, making sure it will be executed on the discrete nVidia GPU, not on the integrated Intel graphic processor. So if I understand well about any program which can be launched under X can be launched through optirun. But that's only useful for program needing graphic performance as else you will just consume more power.

To know what else you can do with optirun, type "optirun --help" or if the manual page is installed "man optirun".

This is according to the wiki, as I don't have it installed

A copy of the manual, may-be outdated, is available here.
