Default Re: Optimus support for Linux

May try to build acpi_call module from git or vga_switcheroo module from git...
There is some progress on that field... Check out this thread - one of the guys found and posted an acpi_call based hack which allows to power down nvidia adapter. Although I'd like the other way around (get rid of Intel, leave nvidia fully working), this example leaves a hope...
