Hi,

My system is gentoo x64. My laptop has nVidia and Intel dual graphic card. I don't use nVidia card with my DE, so I always turn it off. With kernel 3.13.x, everything works fine. But after I upgraded to 3.14.1, it is unable to detect the card, thus bbswitch cannot work :(

Now, if I try modprobe nvidia, it will repeat these errors, none stoppable...

Quote:
nvidia module init failed
cannot find card



I don't think I touched the kernel configuration, nor do I remember there needs some special configuration for the modules to detect the card...or am I wrong?

not an issue with the kernel...the problem is caused by the graphic card
