Thanks for all helps. I still have problems with the WiFi and interested to know the solutions.
About the rest, I downloaded and compiled the bumblebee. Now my problem is how to load it at startup time. I have copied the bumblebeed.service
file to /etc/systemd/system/
but this does not help.
After reboot, when I try to run optirun
it complains that bumblebee daemon is not loaded. Apparently the reason is that the kernel module bbswitch
should be loaded prior to running the daemon. But I have no idea how to ask fedora to load it automatically at startup. Can anyone help me with this?
Nevertheless, even after manually starting the daemon, in the output of
I see both of the graphic cards. Does it mean something is wrong with the installation? How can I ensure only one of them is active at any time?
I also applied the methods suggested by TuxFriend. Strangely enough I cannot see the power consumption rate in powertop, it only gives me something like:
Summary: 390.4 wakeups/second, 0.0 GPU ops/second and 0.0 VFS ops/sec.
However, in Power Statistics I see the power consumption is around 17-18 Watts with wlan and medium LCD brightness.
Another stupid issue with my fedora is that Bluetooth is always on when the machine starts and I have to turn it off manually, does anyone know how shall I fix this?
So many thanks again!
