Your problem is the nvidia module is not loaded.. try running:

modprobe -r nouveau

modprobe nvidia-current

Hi !

Very good works ! But, the package nvidia-current doesn't exist in Debian 64bits. I have installed the drivers nvidia manually, but xdm-optimus have a error of pam authentification.

Florian.

Hi..

Doesn't Debian provide nvidia drivers at all... or do they just have another package name??

If they use another package name.. please provide it, I will try to fit Debian support in bumblebee..

Just ignore the pam authentification errors.. they doesn't matter...

Some feedback from my testing of this totally awesome bumblebee optimus solution on the XPS 15:

* I don't need the xorg.conf file at all in Ubuntu 11.04. X detects the intel card just fine and the secondary nvidia X server runs happily with just xorg.conf.nvidia.

* wine doesn't detect the video memory size correctly (I assume it reads the Intel card?) but I can tell it that my graphics card has 2GB of RAM using this entry in .wine/user.reg:

[Software\\Wine\\Direct3D]
"VideoMemorySize"="2048"

* I think that compiz's "Unredirect fullscreen windows" setting doesn't work, ie the framerates are similar whether you are in full screen or windowed mode, whereas it does work on another 'purely-nvidia' laptop.

* I can't configure HDMI to work as an extended desktop in Xinerama (HDMI is attached to the nvidia GPU, not the intel GPU). I can get it working using the intel/nouveau (no nvidia) combination in 2d, but not with intel/nvidia, I assume because of the libGL conflict, and not with an intel/optimus nvidia/nouveau combination.

Is there any way at all of telling X to use a different library path for each device driver in a similar way to how the optimus Xserver uses a different library path? Or could a third virtualgl server send output to the HDMI screen being driven with a driver like vesa?

Thanks for the feedback..

I myself was looking for a way to tell individual devices to use different library pathes.. but I don't think it's possible..

I think you will have more luck trying to setup vesa screen...

Thank you for figuring out and implementing this!

I tried the vesa driver, but it bombed out complaining that the interface was already claimed. So no luck. But there was some good news - the mini-displayport in this XPS 15 is attached to the intel GPU, so we managed to get HDMI working via an adapter cable.

Some more feedback: I upgraded the kernel to 2.6.39-rc7 today and everything worked smoothly, there was no need for me to reinstall bumblebee. Most excellent.

A small feedback for debian:
The equivalent nvidia-current is nvidia-glx. But it's not installable on testing :
Code:
nvidia-glx : Dépend: libgl1-nvidia-glx (= 260.19.44-1)
              Dépend: libglx-nvidia-alternatives mais ne sera pas installé
              Dépend: nvidia-kernel-260.19.44
              Pré-Dépend: nvidia-common mais il n'est pas installable
              Recommande: nvidia-vdpau-driver (>= 260.19.44) mais ne sera pas installé
E: Paquets défectueux
The solution is to install manually nvidia-drivers, and works correctly.
but, i don't direct rendering on intel card :
Code:
taillo@L502X:~$ glxgears 
Xlib:  extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0".
Error: couldn't get an RGB, Double-buffered visual
Thanks !

The problem is that you have to specify which libraries (intel/nvidia) to use when...

how to you install nvidia-drivers manually in debian?? by an binary file??

Is it possible to install the deb from ubuntu..

I would love to include debian support in my installation.. so i'm looking for the best way to do it...

The latest bumblebee from git has stopped working for me

Gdm crashes shortly after I login, and I get this in .xsession-errors:

Code:
Xlib: extension "NV-GLX" missing on display ":0" (this repeats 3 more times)
gnome-session: fatal IO error 11 (Resource temporarily unavailable) on X server :0

I've the same problem.
When I try to run an OpenGL 3.3 program, I get:

Xlib: extension "NV-GLX" missing on display ":0.0".
Xlib: extension "NV-GLX" missing on display ":0.0".
X Error of failed request: BadRequest (invalid request code or no such operation)
Major opcode of failed request: 155 (GLX)
Minor opcode of failed request: 34 ()
Serial number of failed request: 70
Current serial number in output stream: 71
* Stopping Bumblebee X server bumblebee

My current commit is: b089347ba5bc9f385c79df33457bcf41c5f6d36c
