Hello again forum,

I really appreciated last time i got help on this forum! buuuuuut i have another problem I cannot solve :(
I have googled for this and sought the forum but it appears im the ONLY one with this problem :/ (which makes it highly likely im just doin' it wrong)
anyhow its really dissapointing there is no wiki page on how to properly configure bumblebee especially because there are more and more laptops coming out with two video cards.

so let me explain... (please feel free to ask for any information you are missing; i am sure that i will miss something important and also please explain how i can provide you with this info since im generally still a total linux noob)

i had trouble setting bumblebee up right now and have followed THIS guide on configuring my kernel and wifi and pretty much everything INCLUDING bumblebee (my laptop is a dell xps15 L502X so i thought it was close enough) though the wiki explains that the bumblebee packages arent working or something really vague... but i think bumblebee is working fine since the battery time is increased with a whopping 4 hours.

I am also using the script provided, and the kernel parameters and i also have to mention that i added
Code:
echo OFF >> /proc/acpi/bbswitch
to the script so the laptop boots with the card off (i am unable to think of a more efficient/clean way to do this :oops: )

here's the error:
Code:

A few questions:
  1. Is bumblebeed in the default run level :?:
  2. What driver are you trying to use, NVIDIA or nouveau :?:
  3. Have you emerged x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers, or built the nouveau driver :?:

trying now...

Code:
/h/pepi # ❯❯❯ modprobe -r nvidia
/h/pepi # ❯❯❯ /etc/init.d/bumblebee restart
 * Stopping BumbleBee Daemon ...                                                                        [ ok ]
 * Starting BumbleBee Daemon ...                                                                        [ ok ]


and then? probably run glxspheres:

I had my hopes up for something that would appear to be black magic T-T

ty for the effort though! :D appreciate it very much!

Is your user in the video group :?:
Set the video driver to intel.
Code:
/etc/init.d/xdm stop
nano -w /etc/conf.d/xdm
DISPLAYMANAGER="xdm"
emerge twm xterm xclock
startx


Does this give you 3 Terminals and a clock :?:
Ctl + Alt + Terminal Number, then Ctl + C to exit

how do i set the driver to intel?? :s

and yes i do get all the terminals and standard xdm but it reports the same problem :/

though i didnt try it while stopping kde so i will try that now

You do realize you have to VIDEO_CARDS right :?:

The Intel one is a complete graphics system. It can write new images in the pixel buffer and read the pixel buffer out to the dispaly.
The nVidia graphics can only write new images in the pixel buffer. It has no way to get the pixel buffer onto the screen.
This means that for low power/performce you use the Intel system.
For high power/performance you use the Intel system to refresh the screen and the nVidia chip to draw in the pixel buffer.


See this Photo, and this NVIDIA info site.

The Blue Dot = intel.
The RedDot = NVIDIA
Green Dot = Optimus Driver Software
In Low to Average Power, the Blue Dot creates the Pixel Buffer :arrow: Sends the Buffer to the Intel Graphics Bus :arrow: Intel Draws Output on Screen.
In Situations Where Graphics are in High Demand :arrow: Battery Saver Disabled :arrow: NVIDIA Draws the Pixel Buffer :arrow: NVIDIA sends the Buffer to the Intel Graphics Bus :arrow: Intel Draws Output on Screen.

This works because the CPU Power in the NVIDIA GPU does all the Pixel Manipulation , and once rendered only needs intel to output it, therefore the NVIDIA Card has no output buffer, unless both cards work in tandem. That is why the system cannot power on the MDP Port unless the Optimus Driver is installed, because it bridges the Highend Pixel Buffer you Paid for with the Intel Video Chipset that is default in all "pure intel systems" The driver software only worked in Windows until the Bumblebee Project.

In your first Example, the MDP Port is Connected to "all intel parts" and no bridging software is needed. In the Highend Model, the MDP input is wired to the NVIDIA, but since the output buffer doesn't exist, the MDP output is still wired to the Intel. The NVIDIA isn't disabled, it just isn't "turned on" until the Optimus Driver Software is installed. See The Bumblebee Wiki
Quote:
Welcome to our wiki!

Many recent notebooks with a discrete nVidia card in it and an i3/i5/i7 processor use the nVidia Optimus technology to improve battery life. Unfortunately, this software solution is only available in Windows 7 and later.

The Bumblebee Project is a set of tools developed by people aiming to provide Optimus support under Linux (legacy nVidia hybrid graphics is supported too) while waiting for kernel and drivers to support these notebooks.


Software Solution means Windows Only Driver...

Okay im posting this through xdm

Am i supposed to try optirun in xdm?? since xdm stop command stopped bumblebee service too and i get
Code:
[ 3533.187076 ] [ERROR]The Bumblebee daemon has not been started yet or the socket path /var/run/bumblebee.socket was incorrect.
[ 3533.187151 ] [ERROR]Could not connect to bumblebee daemon - is it running?


When i try
Code:
/etc/init.d/bumblebee start
It outputs some trippy stuff about me not having xdm even though im in it right now?????

(i cant copy paste in xdm so:...) it says something about:

ERROR your xdm value is invalid
no xdm executable found on your system
ERROR: please set your display manager variable in /etc/conf.d/xdm

which btw is:
Code:
DISPLAYMANAGER="xdm"


then start-stop daemon: /usr/bin/xdm does not exist
error could not start the display manager

then it says starting VirtualGL.... and hangs there

what is happening???? :S :S

Hmm thanks but im not sure i quite get it...

I have disabled all framebuffer devices (forgot to mention i have a custom ck-sources kernel :oops: )
i DID follow all the setups for the nvidia drivers and i think the driver itself is working just fine since xorg doesnt complain about it?

i mean i have seen other posts where the driver isnt loading or incompatible and bumblebee says: cannot load module nvidia or something similar... so i do doubt that its the nvidia drivers unless you really think i should recompile the kernel again and the drivers afterwards. (which i did a couple of times to be sure that i havent forgotten to recompile the drivers after the kernel make INCLUDING bumblebee itself, virtualgl, nvidia aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaandd.............. i dont think i have an intel driver............ :oops: :oops: :oops: )

if that is the problem then im terribly terribly sorry for waisting your time :S


EDIT: My bad:

Code:
VIDEO_CARDS="intel nvidia"

Read what I quoted again as you cannot use the NVIDIA driver by itself...

okay im sorry for being so bad at this >.<

so if i understand it right.... i cannot use only the nvidia card to be able to render things on the screen???? :O
I have to use the intel card too and this is where bumblebee comes in, correct?

in that case do i have to do anything special to enable the intel card??

the video card should be this one:
2nd Generation Intel® Core™ Processors with Intel® HD Graphics 3000/2000

and the kernel driver is also for intel HD's so i guess it works??
so what now?

im sorry im just at a complete loss here >.<

Ok so still no luck :/

i tried some of the solutions from the other thread but none seem to work.
also when i
Code:
eselect opengl set *NVIDIA*
and reboot my kde effects are dead. it says it cannot load them and the screen "0:" is unavailable, so that might be my problem??
thing is, i cannot seem to find a config that says something like this anywhere :s

so it might be a problem with the nvidia driver afterall...

oh and the other eselect opengl option is xorg-x11

my xorg.1.log has some weird stuff:

i changed AutoAddDevices to true (according to here many people are saying it fixed it for them)

and VirtualDisplay=:0 (i think the default display for xorg = 0? idk why it is automatically set to 8)
and now i get ANOTHER incomplete message -.-
Code:

why am i getting such incomplete messages from optirun?? :S


EDIT: I found this:
Code:
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="i915.i915_enable_rc6=1 i915.semaphores=1 i915.i915_enable_fbc=1 i915.lvds_downclock=1 pcie_aspm=force intel_iommu=off"


could this in any way interfere with anything??

Remove bumblebee from the default runlevel, and set intel as the device driver in xorg.conf
Code:
rc-update del bumblebee default
nano -w /etc/X11/xorg.conf <-- change driver to intel, Save
rc-update del xdm default
nano -w /etc/conf.d/xdm
Set DISPLAYMANAGER TO xdm, Save
emerge twm xterm xclock
startx


Does this give you three terms and a clock :?:

yes it gives me 3 terms and a clock but i dont have a xorg.conf???

never created one and i honestly dont know how so i just went ahead with the xorg.conf wiki:

created /etc/X11/xorg.conf with these contents:
Code:
Section "Device"
     Identifier   "INTEL_CARD"
     Driver       "intel"
EndSection

I think this is what i am supposed to do??

Delete what you created, then run:
Code:
XOrg -configure

as Root.

then:
Code:

Yepp all the terms and clocks are still there...

EDIT:: I can disable the nvidia card completely using bbswitch and i have done that (confirmed because the laptop fan stopped working entirely)

EDIT2: apearently bbswitch does not work :(
or at least when i tried it again now the module gave me trouble (said it was in use) and then suddenly i was able to unload it after which i echoed OFF >> /proc/acpi/bbswitch and it was off but my fan kept spinning and powertop reported wattage of 25+ (i HAVE to unload the nvidia module before echo'ing because otherwise it won't change from "ON" to "OFF"

i rebooted and then tried the same thing now it worked flawlessly (no fan spinning and have 7 hrs remaining again...)

Dont worry about bumble bee yet. Save that xorg.conf to a usb device first. This is now your baseline configuration.

Bumblebee needed intel to work before bumblebee could work properly.

DO NOT ADD KDE etc until after you configure bumblebee properly. Use startx as the testing tool which means DO NOT add xdm to the default runlevel. Start by:
Code:
emerge nvidia-drivers
nano -w /etc/bumblebee/bumblebee.conf
Set these values to what I have them on:
VirtualDisplay=:8
KeepUnusedXServer=false
ServerGroup=bumblebee
TurnCardOffAtExit=true
NoEcoModeOverride=false
Driver=nvidia
XorgConfDir=/etc/bumblebee/xorg.conf.d/
Bridge=auto 
VGLTransport=proxy
AllowFallbackToIGC=false
KernelDriver=
PMMethod=auto
LibraryPath=/usr/lib64/opengl/nvidia/lib:/usr/lib32/opengl/nvidia/lib:/usr/lib/opengl/nvidia/lib
XorgModulePath=/usr/lib64/opengl/nvidia/lib,/usr/lib64/opengl/nvidia/extensions,/usr/lib64/xorg/modules/drivers,/usr/lib64/xorg/modules
XorgConfFile=/etc/bumblebee/xorg.conf.nvidia

okay so the only difference between your settings and mine were that i had an extra line which i commented:
Code:
PrimusLibraryPath

and i had my kernel driver set to nvidia

i havent tried optirun because bumblebee daemon isnt started

now test bubmblebee
Code:
/etc/init.d/bumblebee start
.

Post your XOrg.0.Log, after trying optirun. If everything works you should have no errors in optirun and see the three xterms and clock in the crummy twm. If that's what you see add bumblebee back into a runlevel with:
Code:
rc-update add bumblebee default

/etc/init.d/bumblebee start: (as root)
Code:
ERROR: Your XDM value is invalid.
     No xdm executable could be found on your system.
ERROR: Please set your DISPLAYMANAGER variable in /etc/conf.d/xdm,
     or install x11-apps/xdm package
  *  Setting up xdm ...
  *  start-stop-daemon: /usr/bin/xdm does not exist
  *  ERROR: could not start the Display Manager
  *  Starting VirtualGL ...
xauth:     file does not exist


cat /etc/conf.d/xdm:
Code:
CHECKVT=7
DISPLAYMANAGER="xdm"


emerging xdm now...

EDIT: after xdm emerge:
/etc/init.d/bumblebee start
Code:
  *  Starting VirtualGL ...
xauth:     file does not exist


and it still hangs there....
startx on alt+f2 and then optirun returns "could not connect to daemon - is it running?"
then /etc/init.d/bumblebee start: "WARNING: bumblebee already starting"
then closing "alt+f1" bumblebee and trying start bumblebee again from tty2: "starting virtualGL ... xauth doesnt exist"
and hangs there

no xorg.0.log because it fails even to start so i dont think there is much left there (besides im still unable to copy/paste in xdm :/)
