ASUS K53S Ubuntu 14.10 64-bit
ASUS 1015PX Netbook Lubuntu 14.10
Two Dell laptops with 14.04
Hi, I installed Bumblebee from stable ppa. I used nVidia driver from official repository (not ppa:ubuntu-x-swat/x-updates). When I used optirun, it shows error message "Bumblebee X server failed to start" and "Failed to initialize nVidia GPU at PCI:2:0:0" in /var/log/Xorg.8.log. Then I activated nvidia-current and nvidia-current-updates in Additional Drivers. Now glxspheres, glxgears, etc. won't work without optirun! Also the Unity interface now displays with some errors. Any ideas why Bumblebee did not work? Thanks.
P.S.:My laptop configurations are given in the first message in this thread.
I installed ironhide, but I got many errors during installation end. I even get errors while disabling and enabling card. I get this with ironhide-disablecard:
And this with ironhide-enablecard:Code:ERROR: Module nvidia_current does not exist in /proc/modules _DSM Disabling nVidia card succeeded. _PS3 Disabling nVidia card succeeded.
But still, laptop gets much cooler and more quiet instantly, ironhide seems to be working for me!Code:_PS0 Enabling nVidia card succeeded. FATAL: Error inserting nvidia_current (/lib/modules/3.0.0-12-generic-pae/updates/dkms/nvidia_current.ko): No such device
I have Dell Inspiron N5110 with i3-2310M and Nvidia 525M.
So is Ironhide still the latest and most updated? Or is the Bumblebee project? Will either of these work with 10.04?
I've got Bumblebee project working fine on 11.10 with power management by following this guide http://www.ivegotavirus.com/blog/201...11-10-oneiric/
