Thread: Hybrid graphics support for Linux?

  1. #1

    Default Hybrid graphics support for Linux?

    I was just wondering if there are any nvidia drivers for linux (OpenSUSE 11.1, KDE 4.2.4) that support hybrid graphics yet? Read on wikipedia that he current Linux implementation lacks the hot switching feature (dynamic GPU switching).

    just wondering if it supports switching at all?

    I have a Dell Studio XPS 13...

    I do not believe anything is out there yet. People I know with Hybrid
    GPUs maintain multiple configs to boot into.

    If someone could tell me how to make it so that only the integrated GPU is used, then I would be delighted!

    Is this the ASUS N10j (I think that's what it's called?)?

    Isn't there some setting in the bios? I don't own one, have only talked
    to some folks that have owned it.

    No, Im on the Dell Studio XPS 13 (Geforce 9200m + 9400m)..

    Cant find any relevant settings in the BIOS either (have the latest BIOS version installed too)
