Please note, that bumblebee and proprietary NVidia graphics are not included in Fedora repos, as they do not adhere to Fedora package and code standards (they are proprietary, so dev's are unable to vouch for them or provide support).

However, there is a third-party source for said packages that has worked really well for me and my optimus for Fedoras 22-23 (and I believe it will still work for Fedora 24)
