    Because Overman's repo is empty, all packages have been removed.

    The repo's descriptions states now:
    "Laptop" was deleted. Please use X11:Bumblebee.
    So do that, the repo's URL is: http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...openSUSE_13.1/
    But the packages are named slightly different there, and split differently. F.e. there's only nvidia-bumblebee which contains all of the nvidia driver.
    Just use YaST's repositories view to install all necessary packages.
    Those should suffice I'd say: bbswitch-kmp-xxx (according to your kernel), bumblebee, nvidia-bumblebee, primus (and primus-32bit maybe).

    Or use Knurpht's packages instead: http://forums.opensuse.org/entry.php...IA-on-openSUSE

    Then the nvidia driver is not properly installed I suppose. And nouveau doesn't work because KMS is disabled.
    What packages did you install now?

    Maybe you should try bbswitch-dkms (and dkms) instead of bbswitch-kmp-xxx.

    I'm afraid I cannot help you further though. I never had an Optimus system myself and have never used Bumblebee.

    PS: If you're using the X11:Bumblebee repo, you apparently need to install VirtualGL (available in that repo) as well.

    Is nouveau not blacklisted, like it was with the Overman79 repo? How do I do that manually? Also, I installed both bbswitch-dkms and bbswitch-kmp-desktop. Are you only supposed to install one of them?

    I found this thread: 'https://forums.opensuse.org/showthre...ling-bumblebee', where they told you to set "NO_KMS_IN_INITRD" to "no", but I already have it set that way.

    You shouldn't have to do it manually. If you would have to, that error message wouldn't say "KMS not enabled".

    Also, I installed both bbswitch-dkms and bbswitch-kmp-desktop. Are you only supposed to install one of them?
    I think it's either/or. bbswitch-kmp-desktop contains a pre-compiled kernel module, bbswitch-dkms sets up automatic compilation via dkms.

    That prevents the nouveau driver from being loaded in the initrd.
    But you have to run "sudo /sbin/mkinitrd" afterwards for the change to take effect.

    Now it seems to work after setting driver=nvidia in the Bumblebee settings, Nouveau is still loaded though.

    Hm, nouveau should not be loaded if "KMS not enabled".
    How do you judge that it is loaded?

    What does "optirun glxinfo|grep -i opengl" say? (you might have to install Mesa-demo-x first)

    I just tested the new repo, what I had to do was:
    1. Add my user to the bumblebee group, no change from Overmans repo
    2. Enable bumblebeed service, no change from Overmans repo
    3. Blacklisting nouveau, and that's new from Overmans repo. Just added "blacklist nouveau" to /etc/modprobe.d/50-blacklist.conf and ran mkinitrd.
    And yes nouveau was loaded before i blacklisted it and I got the above errormessage, but it didn't prevent bbswitch from powering off the card.
