I have an old laptop that had been working really fine.
It has a Geforce GT 630M card and has Nvidia Optimus.
But after I updated to Fedora 36, I realized that Bumblebee repo is no more maintained and there is no repo for Fedora 36.
I’d like to have a help to solve the issue, once the computer keeps at 80ºC when there is no work load, where the normal would be between 50ºC and 60ºC.
I have been using KDE X11 and the driver version is the 470.
Below more information about the discrete and integrated GPU
lspci | grep VGA
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 3rd Gen Core processor Graphics Controller (rev 09)
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation GF108M [GeForce GT 620M/630M/635M/640M LE] (rev a1)
When I was using F35 I used to get the same temp behavior if I stopped the Bumblebee service, and the temp would return to “normal” when I restarted the service.
I tried to set to hybrid or integrated GPU (Intel) only, following the following tutorial: How to Install NVIDIA Driver & Switch Between Intel Graphics in Fedora 36 - FOSTips
However, the temperature kept high… I also tried to set Nvidia card only but it didn’t work either.
