Description Gary Gatling 2012-05-31 19:46:29 UTC
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:
for further information.

This is only the second package I have submitted for review and I need a sponsor.

Fedora doesn't accept external kernel modules.

Comment 3 Luis Medinas 2012-06-16 12:20:58 UTC
maybe this could go to rpmfusion ?
