Thread: Running 32 bits apps with Bumblebee on a 64 bits OpenSUSE

    Default Running 32 bits apps with Bumblebee on a 64 bits OpenSUSE

    Hi guys, I'm using OpenSUSE 13.1 64 bits and I used this excelent guide to set up Bumblebee. It's working properly I guess, when I run "$ optirun glxgears" FPS are 1000+. I guess it installed Bumblebee for 64 bits apps only, right? I'm a bit lost here. Well, then I installed Steam's client using this link. I clicked "1 click install" and a bunch of 32 bits only apps. I think everything is OK, I was able to open Steam and install my game. Steam's client itself is 32 bits and the game I'm trying to play (Counter Strike Source) is 32 bits too. The game opens, but graphics are all messed up, it's all black with some parts white, I can't see a thing. Why is this problem happening? Is it because my Bumblebee doesn't support 32 bits apps? Is it because I didn't an install Nvidia driver for 32 bits? How can I solve this, please?

    I installed these packages:

    x11-video-nvidia-32bit
    primus-32bit
    virtualgl-32bit

    Now optirun is able to use my Nvidia driver to run 32 bits apps, BUT I think primusrun can not

    Code:
    $ optirun glxspheres64
    ~150 FPS
    Code:
    $ optirun glxspheres32
    ~150 FPS
    Code:
    $ primusrun glxspheres64
    ~60 FPS
    Code:
    $ primusrun glxspheres32
    ~60 FPS
    Code:
    $ glxspheres64
    ~60 FPS
    Code:
    $ glxspheres32
    ~60 FPS
    It seems primusrun makes no difference... is it meant to be like this? Is primusrun broken?

    AFAIK primus reports what is sent to the screen. Since most screens refresh at a rate of 60, that info should be ok.

    So is primusrun working properly? Is there another way to test it?
