Default Re: Optimus support for Linux

We've created a Launchpad team called hybrid-graphics-linux as a group of hybrid graphics laptop owners and/or developers interested in getting it to work 100% under Linux.

Please subscribe to this team if you are new by clicking on the "Join Team" link at the right of http://launchpad.net/~hybrid-graphics-linux

Use the mailing list hybrid-graphics-linux@lists.launchpad.net to report on your testing.

ACTIONS:
We are looking for students with basic Linux kernel/graphics notions interested in applying for the X.org Open Source PRIME multi-gpu support Google Summer of Code 2010:

We are looking for Linux users with Nvidia Optimus-enabled laptops willing to provide debugging information for Open Source PRIME multi-gpu support features being worked on. Please join the team by clicking on "Join" on the right, fill in this doodle:
