| I have a ASUS TP500L notebook with a nivdiaGeforce 840M graphic card. I've installed SL7.3 on it and installed the nvidia driver as mentioned in https://elrepo.org/tiki/bumblebee. But I got the following error in /var/log/message. Can anyone help. Thank you

|Did you install the nvidia driver? If not use nvidia-detect to see which nvidia driver you need to install from elrepo. Don't have any experience with bumbelbee but seems from the installation instructions that bumbelbee needs the nvidia driver in order to work.|

|I did install kmod-nvidia with the help of nvidia-detect|

From the log messages it seems like the nvidia module isn't loading. Did you reboot the system after installing kmod-nvidia? If you followed all the instructions on the elrepo site then I would try mailing the user elrepo mailinglist. Someone in that list should know more about what goes wrong since someone there packaged it.

| Inspire by your reply from my other post, I went and check when the error starts occurring. It seems that bumblebee stops working properly since my last update. It seems that some packages have been updated to *.el7_4.
Since sl7.4 is coming out soon, I think I'll wait and see whether sl7.4 will fix my problem.

Try to booting into a previous kernel, and if it works there try asking in the elrepo mailinglist what the problem could be. Since it was working before, and 7.3 has been out for a while someone there should know.

| With the 7.4 kernel, you need the latest version of the kmod-bbswitch package. Earlier versions are not compatible.
[EDIT] kmod-bbswitch-0.8-5.el7_4.elrepo.x86_64.rpm to be more specific.
