Thread: OpenSUSE 12.1 on a Optimus Laptop

    Default Re: OpenSUSE 12.1 on a Optimus Laptop

    Hi mates,

    A small issue reproducing the steps above.
    Code:
    #uname -a 
    Linux linux-immz.site 3.1.9-1.4-desktop #1 SMP PREEMPT Fri Jan 27 08:55:10 UTC 2012 (efb5ff4) x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
    # ls /usr/X11R6/lib/
    # ls /usr/lib64/xorg/modules/updates/extensions/
    # ls /usr/X11R6/lib/
    #
    i.e. there is nothing to move.
    I suspect that some Mesa drivers mentioned above did not install -- or are already in different place. Nevertheless, optirun glxinfo reports properly.

    Any ideas?...

    Ok, I'll bite and illustrate my ignorance. What are mesa drivers ?? I have never heard of mesa drivers ! I have heard of mesa libraries ... Mesa (computer graphics) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia and http://www.mesa3d.org/ ... Drivers and libraries are not the same thing. I admit my ignorance and am willing to learn here. Can you point me to a reference ?

    Pls do not troll the typos.

    The fact is that folders mentioned above are empty and

    I'm not trolling - I am trying to keep the thread accurate. Some users might read that 'Mesa driver' statement, and based on other posts of yours that appear technically knowledgeable, think you knew what you were saying, and then walk away thinking there are such things as Mesa drivers. I dare say you know more than I about hybrid graphics. And for all I know there are Mesa drivers, as I don't know all there is to know about graphics - although I concede I have never heard of Mesa drivers, and I note that drivers are not libraries, nor visa versa.

    Reference your Mesa question, I can not answer it. I do note on my openSUSE-12.1 PC with a radeon (and NOT an intel) graphic driver I have these 'Mesa' rpms installed:
    Code:
    oldcpu@dellstudio:~> rpm -qa '*Mesa*'
    Mesa-32bit-7.11-11.1.2.x86_64
    MesaGLw-devel-7.10.2-4.1.2.x86_64
    Mesa-devel-7.11-11.1.2.x86_64
    Mesa-7.11-11.1.2.x86_64
    DirectFB-Mesa-1.4.5-20.1.2.x86_64
    MesaGLw-7.10.2-4.1.2.x86_64

    I don't know anything wrt the 'glxinfo' command, although I note I get a massive output when I send that command from a pc with the fglrx video driver (with no errors).

    It may (or may not) be useful for you to indicate what driver (intel or nvidia) you had active when you sent the 'glxinfo' command on your hybrid PC and not force users to speculate from your above posts. I know that does not make any difference to me (as I don't know enough for it to matter) but it might make a difference to users who do know a bit about this.

    There are some user repositories in the Build Service with BumbleBee 3, just search for bbswitch.
    Btw. bbswitch makes PowerManagement pretty easy. ArchWiki has also a really good BumbleBee section: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Bumblebee

    https://build.opensuse.org/project/s...e%3Abumblebee3 works great with bbswitch:
    Code:
    glxinfo | grep OpenGL
    OpenGL vendor string: Tungsten Graphics, Inc
    OpenGL renderer string: Mesa DRI Intel(R) Sandybridge Mobile 
    OpenGL version string: 2.1 Mesa 7.11
    
    optirun glxinfo | grep OpenGL
    OpenGL vendor string: NVIDIA Corporation
    OpenGL renderer string: NVS 4200M/PCI/SSE2
    OpenGL version string: 4.2.0 NVIDIA 290.10

    Hi,
    first i followed this tutorial: http://forums.opensuse.org/english/g...ort-howto.html, so I had bumblebee installed from that repo. After that I installed nvidia drivers in "hard" way (I had to disable nouveau, and switch to 3rd runlevel). After that I noticed that kde effects doesn't work. glxgears throw error (that I don't remember now), but under optirun glxgears run (and gave about 600 fps - I have dell q15r with nvidia gt525m).
    After that I saw link to this thread. I thought that if I already have nvidia drivers, next step will be "Fix the Intel/Mesa driver", so I did that. After reboot I have kde rotated 180 and mirror effect ;p I googled for that and there are hundred lines of text on bug trackers, forums etc. I don't want to waste time for reading all this So my question is - is there any simple way to get rid of this problem? For now, i'm tired of this and I go to sleep. Any help will be appreciated.

    Kind regards, Matthew.
