Thread: Nvidia Bumblebee

  1. #1

    Default Nvidia Bumblebee

    Hi Folks

    Ive just installed Tumbleweed and just finished setting up. The laptop is an Asus N550JV with an Nvidia GT750M Graphics Card. What is the best way to install Nvidia & Bumblebee to make use of the Card ?

    Cheers

    Ok so I installed Bumblebee, DKMS & Nvidia through the Bumblebee-Project Repo

    When I try to test optirum, I get the following error :

    Code:
    [  305.319496] [ERROR]Cannot access secondary GPU - error: [XORG] (EE) /dev/dri/card0: failed to set DRM interface version 1.4: Permission denied
    
    
    [  305.319528] [ERROR]Aborting because fallback start is disabled.
    Any suggestions ?

    Thanks

    It could be that the nvidia driver isn't compatible with the newest kernel version. It takes sometimes a really long time that the Bumblebee repo gets a newer driver.
    That the reason I am using this repo http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/fusion809/openSUSE_Tumbleweed/ in combination with the official bumblebee repo to install the newer nvidia driver.
