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.
Verify installation After installation of the software above, reboot your machine.
Check bumblebee is working by opening a terminal and typing:
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:
You can test this by running:
(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:
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…

FWIW, I found a thread reporting the same behaviour (re HDMI) for a similar Dell laptop model.
Just install OpenSuse Leap 42.2 on my new laptop (Dell Inspiron 15 7567 Gaming). I am unable to make my screen work through HDMI.
I also found out that the machine is made in a little funky way. The laptop screen is using the Intel card and the HDMI port is on the NVIDIA card. It appear that opensuse or the driver has hard time handling a situation like this.
