Sorry if I've caused offense or misunderstanding. I was fully aware that I would have to update the drivers every time I installed a new kernel. But from my possibly crappy research, I understood that was the only way to get CUDA working with Bumblebee.

I don't believe I framed my question well enough, so I'll try to rephrase and be more specific:

Do the RPMfusion drivers provide CUDA acceleration support, or do I need to install the CUDA drivers and toolkit from the Nvidia page additionally/instead?

Is it possible to get CUDA accelerated graphics working with Bumblebee? And if so How?

Hey guys!

New to Fedora, but used Ubuntu for a good while before reverting to Windows for a good period. I'm into 3D work and compositing, and a lot of the programs I'm learning are Linux compatible so I thought I'd hop back into Linux. I'm on a Dell M3800 with integrated Intel HD4600 and Nvidia Quadro k1100M set up in optimus. I'm working with Nuke, Maya, Houdini, Blender, etc, so proper 3D acceleration is a MUST and CUDA/OpenCL is a must. If possible, I'd love to get optimus running properly, because my laptop chews through battery like nuts.

What drivers do I install and how? I've been told "Don't use the RPMFusion drivers" and "Don't download the drivers from the Nvidia site" because it'll break my login in future kernel updates.

After research I decided to install the .run self-compile CUDA driver from Nvidia, but I think I goofed it. So calling optirun gives me an access denied error.

Any informative insight would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
