I am using SOLUS Budgie, latest current kernel, on a Lenovo Thinkpad W530.
It has two GPUs, one Nvidia Quadro K1000M, one Intel integrated chip.
As we SOLUS users cannot choose from the Nvidia X Server settings which GPU we would like to use I've tried to choose the Intel chip within the BIOS settings.
I have the choice of
- integrated graphics
- dedicated graphics
I can also choose between detecting Optimus enabled/disabled.
No matter which combination of options I select - I can only use Optimus enabled & dedicated graphics.
With all other combinations of settings the boot process gets stuck at the famous black screen with the even more famous blinking cursor.
Any ideas what I can do?
I don't mind using the Nvidia GPU but if one has a choice and if it saves battery (which it should) one would at least try the integrated GPU, wouldn't one?
So, any ideas, folks?
