Nvidia+Intel Hybrid GPU on Dell XPS 15
« on: 2018/01/02, 00:04:44 »
Trying to get nvidia-driver working on Dell XPS 15 9530, have followed the wikis for nvidia driver installation and bumblebee, the intel driver works fine but when i run nvidia-xconfig and reboot I only get tty....and deleting the xorg.conf file and then rebooting returns my system graphical login....# lsmod does not show nvidia, nv, or nouveau drivers loaded...how to fix?

Intel iGPU:
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 4th Gen Core Processor Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 06)

NVidia dGPU;
02:00.0 3D controller: NVIDIA Corporation GK107M [GeForce GT 750M] (rev ff)

# nvidia-detect    recommends nvidia-driver

Thanx in advance

but when i run nvidia-xconfig
There is no single wiki for bumblebee, where you have to run that command!
After running nvidia-xconfig it's absolute normal, that you won't get a running X on an optimus system!

Not sure which wiki you followed, but I would use this one. Note that it says not to use nvidia-xconfig.


You should follow the "newer than Wheezy" instructions.


I would skip the 32-bit/multiarch section unless you know for sure that you need it.


Disclaimer: I have not configured a bumblebee setup, just trying to point you in a better direction.

@towo
I'm not sure that i need bumblebee, all i want is working intel and nvidia drivers.  If I need bumblebee, how do I make it work?  Do I need to write an xconfig file?  If you could elaborate on what you said about not getting a working X that would be awesome. 

@dibl
I realized that the debian wiki says that it's not required, but by following that wiki no changes occurred nor did the nvidia drivers get loaded

Do I not need 32 bit libraries for Steam?

Basically I'd just like to run games through Steam. 

My specs:
Dell XPS 15 9530
Intel iGPU:
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 4th Gen Core Processor Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 06)

NVidia dGPU;
02:00.0 3D controller: NVIDIA Corporation GK107M [GeForce GT 750M] (rev ff)

Siduction is up to date.


Thank you everybody for your responses!

On Optimus you really need bumblebee, if you want to use the nvidia gpu.All you need for this setup is written in the debian bumblebee wiki page.

Note the post-installation instructions -- you need to make a bumblebee group if the package installation doesn't do that automatically, and you need to add your user to the group.

YES. Again, follow the Debian wiki for instructions.

I've got bumblebee and primus installed.  Running "# apt install nvidia-driver" outputs something strange:


My computer hisses/has electronic whistle whenever I run "# apt install nvidia-driver" and outputs:

"gzip: stdout: No space left on device"

"dpkg: error processing package initramfs-tools (--configure):
 installed initramfs-tools package post-installation script subprocess returned error exit status 1"


getting some other odd returns as well:

# du -c /boot
12    /boot/lost+found
3961    /boot/grub/locale
1333    /boot/grub/fonts
2029    /boot/grub/i386-pc
9678    /boot/grub
117952    /boot
117952    total
(the math doesn't add up)


I deleted all old kernels and related files and still don't have any space on /boot

@_@ so confused....

SOLVED!!

installed all nvidia packages and related libraries from experimental repo

the /boot partition is also fixed now. the problem was that /boot is 128 MB which is not much for siduction, i would recommend to anyone else to make it 512 MB.

All fixed now

Thank you to everyone for your help!
