I currently have a Leveno y410p (i7-4700MQ, NVidia GeForce GT 750M). Here is the VGA setup:

$ lspci | grep VGA
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 4th Gen Core Processor Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 06)
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation GK107M [GeForce GT 750M] (rev a1)

I wanted to install Bumblebee + NVidia drivers (will be using CUDA, so Nouveau isn't an option), so I followed the instructions from the wiki. I installed a vanilla installation of Fedora 22 Workstation, and ran the following commands immediately after booting into it for the first time (I tried two clean installations to verify).

$ dnf upgrade
# Restart into latest kernel.
$ dnf -y install
$ dnf -y install bumblebee-nvidia

Error: nothing provides bumblebee needed by bumblebee-nvidia-340.32-1.fc22.i686

I have not used yum or dnf before, so I can only guess that this error means that the package bumblebee-nvidia-340.32-1.fc22.i686 is looking for a dependency bumblebee which does not exist. I would think that either (1) the bumblebee dependency is a bug and can be removed by rebuilding the rpm, or (2) I need to find or build a bumblebee package. This is my first time using Fedora, so would anyone more experienced have any ideas on the best way to proceed? Or could anyone give me information on how I can contact that repo's maintainer to file a bug?

Aha! It turns out that bumblebee is provided by and BOTH repos need to be available for it to work.
