I just bought an Asus UL30JT, it contains two graphic cards, one Intel and one Nvidia. I understand there is no easy way to switch between them, so what I want to do is to disable the Nvidia card and just use the Intel card (for power saving reasons)
I found this thread with a suggestion on how to disable the Nvidia card: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1366605
I installed the .deb package without any problem and when I try to modprobe the module I get this error message:
I then tried and unload a bluetooth module and then loading it again, and that worked, so apparently I have some kind of module support. So why am I not able to modprobe this module that I actually need?
FATAL: Error inserting nvidia_g210m_acpi (/lib/modules/2.6.32-21-generic/updates/dkms/nvidia-g210m_acpi.ko): Kernel does not have module support
Do I really need to download the kernel source and manually compile a new kernel for this "fix" to work or is it possible to enable module support in an easy way?
If you guys have any info on what I should do to disable the nvidia card in my laptop, you have info on how to load this module or want more info please reply.
Thanks in advance!
