    I may not be the only one to be unable to see what the glxgears performance difference is, since when i run


    Code:
    cat /proc/acpi/battery/BAT0/state
    i get :
    Code:
    [--christophe@diesel 21:10:02 /proc/acpi] cat battery/BAT/state
    present:                 yes
    capacity state:          ok
    charging state:          discharging
    present rate:            unknown
    remaining capacity:      4866 mAh
    present voltage:         12376 mV
    Actually, present rate is displayed only when battery is charging and it is slowly decreasing to 0.

    hey guys,

    followed instructions posted by hank-se (thanks bro)

    this is what im getting when i optirun..


    [ 1524.727759] [ERROR]Cannot access secondary GPU - error: [XORG] (EE) Failed to load /usr/lib64/xorg/modules/libglamoregl.so: /usr/lib64/xorg/modules/libglamoregl.so: undefined symbol: _glapi_tls_Context

    [ 1524.727806] [ERROR]Aborting because fallback start is disabled.


    im on a samsung np550p5c with i5 3210m and GTX650m, running opensuse 12.2...i bought the non optimus model as it was cheaper, but they shipped the optimus one, at the time i thought...great free goodies....but now i regret it...lol



    mind you, you guys have done a better job then linux mint and fedora...linuxmint.....dont ask..lol...cinnamon is a nightmare (why would you want to make gnome3 look like gnome2 anyways??). and nothing works properly....at the very least, trying to install bumblebee shouldn’t slow the whole system down (lol) but for some reason it does in mint....and in fedora.....VERY UNSTABLE...it should suffice to say....it has a serious memory leak!! (100mb of ram per hour is used up for unknown reasons)

    from a noob point of view, opensuse is SOLID like a rock, installer is stable and works, everything just simply works...as a noob, i find this easier then linuxmint!! and want to take this opportunity to thank the developers for a excellent distro....and especially for this one click thing, its a pretty great feature.



    this is the only problem im having, got further then on any other distro...but stuck on this above message...please help.

    Thumbs up Re: Right nvidia optimus driver configuration

    ignore above..

    i solved this issue:

    linux-qnzs:~ # optirun glxgears
    [ 1524.727759] [ERROR]Cannot access secondary GPU - error: [XORG] (EE) Failed to load /usr/lib64/xorg/modules/libglamoregl.so: /usr/lib64/xorg/modules/libglamoregl.so: undefined symbol: _glapi_tls_Context

    [ 1524.727806] [ERROR]Aborting because fallback start is disabled.

    i remembered from another forum that in:

    /etc/bumblebee/xorg.conf.nvidia

    i changed,


    Code:
    
    Option "ConnectedMonitor" "DFP"
    >>> to >>>>
    Code:
     Option "ConnectedMonitor" "CRT"





    and now when i run the optirun, it works like a charm..(takes a few seconds to loads, is this normal??)

    linux-qnzs:~ # optirun glxgears
    3251 frames in 5.0 seconds = 650.049 FPS
    2656 frames in 5.0 seconds = 531.067 FPS
    2664 frames in 5.0 seconds = 532.794 FPS
    2751 frames in 5.0 seconds = 550.155 FPS
    2790 frames in 5.0 seconds = 557.976 FPS


    thanks to entire opensuse team.....you guys are AWSOME......you have EARNED a new user!!! a LOYAL user!!!


    this thing is just mind blowingly solid...thanks to all the maintainers and developers such as the ones on this thread

    Hank-Se.....you saved me!!!!! thanks dude!!

    IIRC the error also disappears when the Mesa-32bit packages are installed, but I could be wrong here.

    I see the same things. But .... AFAIK primusrun should use the NVIDIA, sure it was like that for a while, it was advertized as an improvement re. optirun. Then again, what I need works.

    I tested primusrun for the first time today, on 12.3-RC1 32-bit. As this was a fresh install I wasn't in the video group, and that proved to be critical. Another thing I discovered in this thread:

    https://forums.opensuse.org/english/...imus-tips.html

    Look at post #2 by EricDavis and add those symlinks:

    Code:
    ln -s /usr/lib/nvidia /usr/lib/nvidia-bumblebee
    ln -s /usr/lib64/nvidia /usr/lib64/nvidia-bumblebee
    I didn't have to edit /bin/primusrun at all, and sure primusrun runs on nVidia.

    Just to clarify, don't you need the symlinks at all? My version of the primusrun script from overman is dated januari 21 and seems to be for Ubuntu, where the nvidia stuff is under /usr/lib/nvidia-bumblebee. In addition I also have to create this file /etc/ld.so.conf.d/primusrun.conf, content as follows:

    Code:
    /usr/lib/nvidia
    And run ldconfig once.
