Hi folks,

I was wondering why my MSI power switch was always orange
when it used to flip between orange & blue.
Hell for systemd that shows nothing in its pathetic binary
"journal" log:(((

Finally, the bumblebee status command show this:
[ERROR]Module bbswitch could not be loaded (timeout?)
[WARN]No switching method available. The dedicated card will always be on.
[INFO]/usr/sbin/bumblebeed 3.2.1 started

AFAI understand it, bbswitch-dkms miss this dependency as 
it was install and didn't complain about the missing source.
