Does anyone know how to get a virtual machine to run entirely on the
extra graphics card using bumblebee and nvidia optimus?
When I start up virtualbox, if I start it with “optirun VirtualBox”,
then optirun --status shows that bumblebee is running in one application.
When I start the virtual machine, it still shows that bumblebee is
running in only one application.
Then if I close virtualbox but leave the virtual machine running, it
shows that bumblebee is no longer running. I would like to be able to
run my virtual machine so that it always uses the extra graphics card,
not for games, but to see if it makes a difference in performance.
I am running VirtualBox-4.3, the latest version downloaded from Oracle.
