    Your Xorg.0.log shows that the frame buffer driver is in use. No sign of the nvidia driver. Which guide did you follow?

    I note the boot code "nouveau.modeset=0". Is that not intended to disable the nouveau driver for nvidia hardware? Can you give a bit more background as to the technical approach you are trying adopt wrt disable drivers in your optimus ?

    Nouveau is the opensource driver, I installed the official nvidia driver (with bumblebee).

    PD. I can run programs with "optirun" (mpv for example), so the nvidia driver works, BUT my question is very different, I can't enable the HDMI output (I want use my TV/external monitor in this laptop). With my old SONY VAIO Fit 15 (also, optimus), I can use the HDMI output by default, only press CTRL + F7 in openSUSE Leap 42.2 (the previous version)

    Are you certain about that ? The log file you posted indicates the FBDEV driver loaded, which to the best of my recollection is not the nvidia driver. ie it does not appear to be loaded. Look at all the "FBDEV(0)" entries in that log file.

    Maybe the following will be helpful:

    https://en.opensuse.org/SDB:NVIDIA_B...y_installation

    Verify installation

    After installation of the software above, reboot your machine.
    Check bumblebee is working by opening a terminal and typing:
    Code:
    optirun --status
    If you see the message: "Bumblebee status: Ready (3.2.1). X inactive. Discrete video card is off." Then bumblebee should be working properly. To use the discrete video card, you must launch the program from the terminal:

    Code:
    optirun program-name
    You can test this by running:
    Code:
    optirun glxgears
    (Note: glxgears is in Mesa-demo-x package)
    If you see the gears, then your discrete card is working with bumblebee.
    You may also verify your installation by running nvidia-settings program, which is installed along with the proprietary nvidia drivers:
    Code:
    optirun -b none nvidia-settings -c :8

    Yep, I'm sure. Because:

    Default Re: I can't enable the HDMI output in laptop with opitmus

    The output you had provided so far suggest the discrete card is off, and using Xorg is using the frame buffer driver rather than the intel driver as I would expect to see. I would assume that might be why no HDMI output available. I note that the Xorg.0.log contains...

    Code:
    [    83.583] intel: waited 2020 ms for i915.ko driver to load
    but not sure what you might be missing here.
