MINT 16 Loads only in Software Rendering

Postby orousseau on Wed Dec 11, 2013 8:22 pm


I upgrade from Mint 15 to 16 yesterday, and since the upgrade mint keeps loading in software rendering mode with a bogus Gallium llvmpipe driver.

I have an Intel 2nd Gen Optimus card on my laptop and have been looking all over the google world for a solution.

Code: Select all
 $ inxi -G
Graphics:  Card-1: Intel 2nd Generation Core Processor Family Integrated Graphics Controller
           Card-2: NVIDIA GF116M [GeForce GT 555M/635M]
           X.Org: 1.14.3 drivers: (unloaded: fbdev) FAILED: vesa Resolution: 1600x900@60.0hz
           GLX Renderer: Gallium 0.4 on llvmpipe (LLVM 3.3, 256 bits) GLX Version: 2.1 Mesa 9.2.1

I have installed Bumblebee in the correct fashion as well, as I often did on Mint 15 with no success
Code: Select all
optirun inxi -G
[ 2296.277914] [ERROR]Cannot access secondary GPU - error: Could not load GPU driver

[ 2296.277949] [ERROR]Aborting because fallback start is disabled.

Is there anyone who know how to get me out of this horrific situation?
