• bbswitch/bumblebee broken seens last kernel update.


    Hi,

    The discrete card is not switching off seens this morning kernel (4.13.10.1) and nvidia driver (387.22-4) update :

    [2017-11-02 12:57] [ALPM] upgraded linux (4.13.9-1 -> 4.13.10-1)
    [2017-11-02 12:57] [ALPM-SCRIPTLET] >>> Updating module dependencies. Please wait ...
    [2017-11-02 12:57] [ALPM] upgraded nvidia (387.22-3 -> 387.22-4)
    [2017-11-02 12:57] [ALPM-SCRIPTLET] In order to use nvidia module, reboot the system.
    [2017-11-02 12:57] [ALPM] transaction completed
    

    Journalctl :

    OFF
    
    optirun --status
    Bumblebee status: Ready (3.2.1). X inactive. Discrete video card is likely on.
    

    Sound like a bug…
