I'm running Fedora 17 on an ASUS K53S laptop, that has an "optimus" setup, and cannot get it to work. For the time being, I would be happy even with just the intel chip, but I keep getting "no screens found" errors at boot time (but no meaningful WW warnings in the /var/log/Xorg.0.log), leaving me in (hi-res) console mode.
The output of lspci:
- VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 2nd Generation Core Processor Family Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 09) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])
- VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation Device 1058 (rev ff) (prog-if ff)
I have disabled the nouveau driver (lsmod | grep nouveau is blank), and installed bumblee & bbswitch, so:
$ lsmod | grep bbswitch
bbswitch 13396 0
$ systemctl status bumblebeed.service =>
bumblebeed.service - Bumblebee C Daemon
Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/bumblebeed.service; enabled)
Active: active (running) since Sat, 14 Jul 2012 01:28:59 +0200; 14min ago
I have downloaded the akmod-nvidia driver, and modified the bumblebee configuration files according to this guide
I also experimented a lot with different xorg.conf files (using intel or nvidia drivers, defining modelines), with no success.
I am using Kernel 3.4.4-5, and also tried the same with 3.3.4-5, as well, because some threads said that bumblebee/bbswitch work better on the that one.
