Hi, I discovered that Bumblebee stopped working after updating my Kernel. When i boot 3.17.7-300 from GRUB it still works and my dedicated NVIDIA GPU is turned off.

The latest version i have installed is 3.18.3-201 and there isn't even the bumblee deamon running, nor can't i start it as modprobe doesn't find the bbswitch module. I tried to re-install both, bbswitch and bumblebee, via yum but that didn't change anything.

Would appreciate any tips.

I managed to get it working again by editing /etc/modprobe.d/bumblebee.conf to:

blacklist nvidia
#blacklist nouveau

[as i use the nouveau driver].

Also see the Github issue for further Info:
