Can't install bumblebee

Hi everyone !

I've been trying to install bumblebee on my xiaomi notebook air 13 which has an intel HD graphics 520 and a 940M but I haven't been able to make it works on the 4.8.4-200.fc24.x86_64 kernel.

I've followed instructions from using the proprietary version, and after installing all the required packages when I try to reboot my computer won't switch off, it will keep turning with a black screen. I've had to force it to switch off, and then when I switch it on again and after I've logged in there's 4 "cc1" processes that use all of my CPU. This won't stop until I uninstall the bumblebee package.

Any idea on how to install it ? Thanks !

bumblebee is compiling the nvidia kernel module for your installed kernel version, you must let it finish up and it can be a slow process. Be patient.
