EGPUs, Nvidia and Linux

Hi all,

I’ve got some questions about driver binding.

I’ve got a Gigabyte gaming box with a 1070 in it, and I’m unable to get nvidia to automatically bind to the GPU. It’s defaulting to Nouveau, and while I’m able to unbind and rebind, I’m not entirely sure what the best process for this is.

Is this a BumbleBee situation?

Are you using fedora? If so, you may have to blacklist the nouveau module.

Yeah, I got it working by installing the bumblebee stuff. It automatically handled assigning the driver.

Oh, and adding Option "AllowExternalGpus" to my xorg.conf
