Hey guys, how are you doing :P

I noticed the lack of a proper bumblebee setup guide on gentoo (and I don't blame anyone since the project is old). Therefore, I've written an article on how to configure bumblebee on gentoo on my website (https://www.dotslashlinux.com/) and I'm constantly updating it (hopefully will add it to the gentoo wiki once I confirm it's 100% working), you may want to check it out:

https://www.dotslashlinux.com/2017/06/04/setting-up-bumblebee-on-gentoo-linux/

A couple of users have found it helpful, give it a shot and let me know if it worked for you.

Good Luck

You can't put guide in the wiki? For a new user is more simple a search in the wiki.

It'll be added to the wiki once I confirm it's 100% working. You see I've added a lot of steps in the tutorial some of which may not even be needed but for the sake of recreating the setup on which bumblebee worked 100% fine.

It just needs a bit more testing before I can add it to the wiki :P

Several articles of mine were added to the wiki, this one needs some time.

Thanks for understanding.[/quote]

I'm sorry, I didn't see this part.
I can confirm that this method work, long time ago I used almost the same method (you can see my Configurazione Intel/NVIDIA con Bumblebee e primus but only in Italian).

No harm done :P

Yes, well technically most of us (or those who managed to get bumblebee fully working) have gone through the same parts, but since the process was lengthy and tedious they probably forgot the parts that matter. That's why I tried to document almost everything I did to get it working.

Actually, many users have reported that the instructions in the article do work! At this rate the article will be added to the wiki much sooner than I thought.

Thanks for all of those who messaged me with their results!

I am working on setting up my system again, from scratch, and the dotslashlinux link above has been a life saver in the past. Anyone still have this information? Seems like dotslashlinux is no longer in existence. :(

Please note that primus bridge doesn't work with X.Org server >=1.20. Please see Gentoo's Bugzilla – Bug 658738 x11-misc/bumblebee-3.2.1_p20170123 with bridge=primus is not compatible with xorg-server-1.20.0

Adding PRIMUS_UPLOAD=2 before command resolve the problem
Code:
$ PRIMUS_UPLOAD=2 primusrun glxgears
