    Question Bumblebee and nvidia experimental 310? Primus?

    How should I proceed if I want these 2 to work together, should I just use additional drivers to get it working?
    Any information about what Primus is all about?

    UPDATE:
    http://www.webupd8.org/2012/12/use-n...ivers-310.html explains my first question.
    However, what is Primus and how can I install it, I\m no pro on linux so keep it simple, thanks.

    Hi:
    Primus is a small lightweight GPU offloading implementation written in about 500 ... in order to ultimately support technologies like NVIDIA Optimus.
    Here is the website that supports that:

    Until today I only knew about Optimus-

    Hope this helps

    What is it so diffrent about it?
    If it's all so good, why isn't it inncluded in the official pack?

    You asked:
    If it's all so good, why isn't it included in the official pack?
    Not sure why but it most certainly doesn't make it easy and here's an article that will enlighten you but it's long-

    What other option have I got? Intel/Optimus? Or, at the cheap end, Intel alone?

    I learned a lot from reading what this thread said between the 2 men and the graphics issues.

    Well thanks for the reply I foundout the diffrence,
    Optimus renders the whole application whie primus only renders the OpenGL inside the application.
    Because of that, you gett better FPS in Primus but also the chance that it will not work.
    So far it wprked without any errors for me. AAR
    thanks for the replies.
