Thread: Bumblebee issue with Opensuse leap 42.3

    Default Bumblebee issue with Opensuse leap 42.3

    I have installed and configured bumblebee but it is working only with nouveau driver and when using official driver from nvidia I get this error.
    My goal is to use CUDA so I need nvidia driver.

    [ 1856.825074] [ERROR]Cannot access secondary GPU - error: [XORG] (EE) /dev/dri/card0: failed to set DRM interface version 1.4: Permission denied
    [ 1856.825110] [ERROR]Aborting because fallback start is disabled.
    I have opensuse leap 42.3
    Nvidia GTX950M
    I have this package for nvidia driver

    • nvidia-bumblebee-352.63-2.1.x86_64
    • nvidia-gfxG04-kmp-default-384.111_k4.4.76_1-3.1.x86_64
    • nvidia-glG04-384.111-3.1.x86_64
    • I have also nouveau driver and bumblebee packages

    I don't know if this problem is related but when I use nouveau driver I get a lower fps.

    Now everything is working I just deleted all the driver and bumblebee.

    In my case I thing the package nvidia-bumblebee was causing the problem. After some times I notice that this package is related to Tumbleweed

    So if you have this package try to delete it.

    Pay attention, if you do this
    carefully you can break the X server. when you delete the nvidia-bumblebee package there are other package that you should install in my case after deleting all nvidia related package including nouveau(which is an opensource driver for nvidia GPU That I don't know why did they made it) I did zypper up and recommended package check.
