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.
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.
Thank you for your consideration. I have placed the spec file as it is now at:
to make it easier to read.
Fedora doesn't accept external kernel modules.
maybe this could go to rpmfusion ?
