I’ve attempted to follow the directions to enable optimus on my W530 laptop. The bios is set to Optimus mode, and I’ve created an xorg.conf based on the nvidia README.
When X starts, it switches to VT7 or VT8 and only shows a partial cursor on black screen, then after 10-30 seconds, it fails and goes back to VT0.
dmesg shows the following:
[ 465.590846] nvidia 0000:01:00.0: irq 48 for MSI/MSI-X [ 475.594343] NVRM: GPU at 0000:01:00.0 has fallen off the bus. [ 475.594371] NVRM: os_pci_init_handle: invalid context! [ 475.594375] NVRM: os_pci_init_handle: invalid context! [ 475.594381] NVRM: GPU at 0000:01:00.0 has fallen off the bus. [ 475.594386] NVRM: os_pci_init_handle: invalid context! [ 475.594388] NVRM: os_pci_init_handle: invalid context! [ 475.630745] NVRM: RmInitAdapter failed! (0x25:0x28:1157) [ 475.630757] NVRM: rm_init_adapter(0) failed
After X fails to start, xorg.log claims: [ 573.439] (EE) No devices detected.
Right now, the device seems to still be visible in lsmod, but previous tests it didn’t even show up in lsmod after testing.
I’ve attached the bugreport log for pre error, and post error. (or I will once I find the option to attach a file)
