Nvidia prime


#1

Bonjour,

est ce que dans un futur plus ou moins proche, est envisagé le support d’optimus avec nividia prime?
Comme cela peut se faire avec ubuntu ou linux mint.

Support of the Optimus technology (without Bumblebee nor Primus), with
installation of the Nvidia proprietary drivers and offloading support
(bbswitch). Something like Nvidia Prime that will be soon proposed by
Debian.


#2

Do you mean there is already support for nvidia prime in linux in these two distributions (ubuntu and mint)?
I know about prime in linux, and bumblebee usually uses prime options if it is available (OMV has prime packages), but don’t know of proprietary support for prime in linux,

Sorry for writing in english in a french forum …

Ce n’est pas grave.
Sur mon ordinateur portable, la carte nidia GeForce GTX 970M est reconnue nativement.
Une information complémentaire.

Je vois qu’actuellement le pilote Nvidia 378 est disponible pour Cubuntu. C’est installable sans aucune difficultés.
Y aurait-il quelqu’un d’assez curieux pour voir le fonctionnement et s’en inspirer?

Cubuntu, script
Je ne sais pas ce qu’il en est sur OpenMandriva, parce que lors des premières mise à jours après l’installation, ça plante.

Hi,

we are supporting PRIME technology though opensource drivers with xorg-1.19.x

If you have a hardware that have two graphics cards, and your are running OpenMandriva without any proprietary graphics drivers please run as root in konsole:

xrandr --listproviders

Above will list your graphics cards that does support PRIME.

with xrandr command your can easily switch graphics cards too.

Unfortunately we do not provide any GUI tool for this. Second looks like this tool is not maintained


#9

Isn’t it that the command,

 xrandr --listproviders

will show only “activated” graphic cards?

Here, I have an intel and a nvidia graphic card. But the second one is not currently activated (nvidia and kernel incompatibility).

the output of this command show only one “provider”,

Providers: number : 1
Provider 0: id: 0x47 cap: 0xb, Source Output, Sink Output, Sink Offload crtcs: 3 outputs: 5 associated providers: 0 name:Intel

Do not use nvidia propietary drivers if you want to use PRIME


#11

It seems to me that the command,

xrandr --listproviders

did not show nvidia. How to use it with xrandr?
