When the last upload was made to the repos I had no issues with the
latest drivers and the latest Bumblebee on Jessie. I wonder if it
might be due to an incompatibility with the newer version of Xorg in

I am away without my optimus laptop so I cannot try and
reproduce/debug right now. I will be able to investigate later next

Meanwhile, could you please send all the nvidia-related details of
your system by running:

reportbug --template nvidia-driver

and attaching the result? (as a side note, it's probably worth
considering shipping the same bugscript from nvidia-driver in the
bumblebee packages too)

Also, to narrow the scope, when the card is ON are you able to
manually load the nvidia kernel modules with modprobe?


Kind regards,
