I want to use my nvida card for rendering. With bumblebee it is already working, but for performance reasons and because kwin is not working with it I wanted to try out the optimus support in the nvidia driver.
So I installed Kernel 3.10 and the latest 325.15 driver. Also Xorg is up to date. Based on the reference:
Section "ServerLayout" Identifier "layout" Screen 0 "nvidia" Inactive "intel" EndSection Section "Device" Identifier "nvidia" Driver "nvidia" BusID "<BusID for NVIDIA device here>" EndSection Section "Screen" Identifier "nvidia" Device "nvidia" # Uncomment this line if your computer has no display devices connected to # the NVIDIA GPU. Leave it commented if you have display devices # connected to the NVIDIA GPU that you would like to use. #Option "UseDisplayDevice" "none" EndSection Section "Device" Identifier "intel" Driver "modesetting" EndSection Section "Screen" Identifier "intel" Device "intel" EndSection
I updated my xorg.conf.d files. Everthing but
Section "ServerLayout" Identifier "layout" Screen 0 "nvidia" Inactive "intel" EndSection
is included. When I include this section I get a balnk screen when I restart xorg. I guess the problem is, because “xrandr --listproviders” lists just the intel provider. Unfortunatly I don’t know why it is not listing the nvidia card and how to solve this issue.
lspci list my nvidia card correctly on bus 1:0:0. What could be the reason, that xrandr is not recognizing my second graphic card?
