Description Gary Gatling 2012-05-31 15:46:29 EDT
Spec URL: http://pastebin.com/RFr7aSA4
SRPM URL: http://install.linux.ncsu.edu/pub/yum/itecs/public/bumblebee/fedora17/SRPMS/bbswitch-0.4.1-1.fc17.src.rpm
Description: bbswitch is a Linux kernel module which automatically detects the required
ACPI calls for two kinds of Optimus laptops. It has been verified to work
with "real" Optimus and "legacy" Optimus laptops.

See: https://github.com/Bumblebee-Project/bbswitch/

For further information.

For now, if you require nvidia module support with bumblebee you must
install bbswitch. In addition, even with nouveau, bbswitch will work
after a suspend whereas vga_switcharoo in the kernel might not. See:
https://github.com/Bumblebee-Project/Bumblebee/wiki/Comparison-of-PM-methods
for further information.

Hello,

Thank you for your consideration. I have placed the spec file as it is now at:

http://install.linux.ncsu.edu/pub/yum/itecs/public/bumblebee/fedora17/spec/bbswitch.spec

to make it easier to read.

Fedora doesn't accept external kernel modules.

maybe this could go to rpmfusion ?
