Though I can not help you personaly (I have no doubt others will come here and try), I want to give you some information on how to post computer output (of which you posted several, thank you) here in the forums (for next time!).
Please copy/paste that output straight from your terminal window in between CODE tags in the post. You get the CODE tags by clicking on the # button in the tool bar of the post editor.
When possible copy/paste the prompt, the command and the next prompt in one sweep. Then there is no need for you to tell: “command xyz gives me …”, because it is all there.
Thanks Henk. I usually do that, but I was lazy because I had to type everything over on another machine as I couldn’t post from the machine having the problems, so I was constantly having to gooseneck over at the other screen, it was annoying :P.
I first posted the question as a comment over at blogspot and copy/pasted here.
I’ve never had to poke with xorg.conf for Bumblebee, so the problem is probably not there. I se no 32-bit versions for Nvidia, although I know nothing about crossover I would recommend to open up the Laptop repo in Yast and install all 32-bit related, there’s more 32-bit only code out there then you would believe. This might not solve your problem but it will rule out some possibilities for it.
Crossover seems to work well with optirun or primusrun.
cat /proc/acpi/bbswitch says the card is OFF, before and after I ran a game via optirun/primusrun. It seems to work properly, fan turns down shortly after I close a game. I can do optirun firefox and check the output in a console, it will show ON.
The thing is, on Suse all the games seem to perform quite a bit less than on Mint/Ubuntu. The performance isn’t any better than using the integrated intel GPU.
I know bumblebee isn’t primarily about performance but how else am I supposed to run games on the Nvidia card? I can’t make it primary in the BIOS or disable the intel.
optirun /opt/cxoffice/bin/cxdiag shows its using the Nvidia, its definitely not using the intel.
