Default Re: Optimus support for Linux

Guys quick question, so there's no way to use the Nvidia GT 335m card that comes with Alienware m11x R2 on Xorg server? Does anybody know if its there any other X system that makes it possible?

Actually I see that the card is being supported on linux but seems that the release that comes with optimus doesn't.

May be any way to turn off the intel card and them use the nvidia gpu? I see the following on the "lspci" command:
ggorosito@xgon:~$ lspci |grep -i vga
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Core Processor Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 02)
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation GT215 [GeForce GT 335M] (rev a2)
