Optimus

Introduction

There are additional steps needed to integrate the package with optimus.

Also note that NVIDIA currently only support "outputsource" and not "offloadsink". It means that you cannot disable the dGPU (nvidia)

GLVND enabled mesa and KMS for nvidia

dnf copr enable kwizart/glvnd
dnf update
grubby --update-kernel=$(uname -r) --args="nvidia-drm.modeset=1" --remove-args="video=vesa:off"

 [ -f /boot/grub2/grub.cfg ] && grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg

 [ -f /boot/efi/EFI/fedora/grub.cfg ] && grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/efi/EFI/fedora/grub.cfg

Additional Configuration

Fedora 25

Not yet supported because xorg-server ABI but it should be simpler.

Fedora 24

For Fedora 24, you still need a (complicated) xorg.conf:

Please verify to Update the BusID earch GPU, specially for the nvidia device.
