I'm running a Vostro 3460 with Ubuntu 11.10. I made a new fresh install and all the hardware works, except video that falls in VESA instead of Intel.
This notebook have a Nvidia Optimus technology with two video boards: one Intel® HD Graphics and the other is GeForce GT630M.
I managed to install Bumblebee with success, and through it I can get reasonable FPS, but the main video is running VESA instead of Intel.
I made some research but have no idea how to activate the Intel video driver.
