01:00.0 3D controller: NVIDIA Corporation GM107M [GeForce GTX 860M] (rev a2)
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 4th Gen Core Processor Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 06)


Using kernel 3.16.0
and nvidia-drivers 340.24
I've created the file nvidia.conf in xorg.d:
Quote:

Section "Device"
Identifier "nvidia"
Driver "nvidia"
EndSection


Now, if I use this configuration Xorg.0.log says no screens found. If I comment the nvidia device out it works.
Probably it is because my Lenovo Y50-70 has a Intel graphics card as well which is for the display (I read somewhere). So how can I enable the nvidia card for graphics acceleration/video output etc etc if the intel graphics card is for the actual display output.

Next I called "eselect opengl set nvidia" and glxinfo and glxgears say:

I got my information from
http://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/NVidia/nvidia-drivers
but how do I have to deal with two graphics cards as I mentoined?

Or seek out information about bumblebee.

If you don't know if your nvidia is using optimus, check the laptop specs it should be wrote somewhere.

I guess that you are in luck. For the past 2 weeks I've been suffering with this problem with this exact problem with this exact hardware. Your problem is that you probably have a nvidia optimus. Enjoy:
