After fighting Nvidia optimus too long, I've decided to give up and try to just get 3d working, using any way. I've tried out Fedora 15, which actually worked for my computer -- nice 3d graphics, recognised my intel card and used the driver. I'm trying to install the intel graphics on a 11.04 alienware M11x. First step I figured would be disabling nvidia, but using
sudo echo "blacklist nouveau" > /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-nvidia.conf says permission is denied (Yes, I definitely used sudo). Any suggestions how to do this?
System: Alienware M11x R3 [8gb ram, Intel Core i5-2537M 1.4GHz (2.3GHz Turbo Mode, 3MB Cache), NVIDIA GeForce GT540 graphics with 1.0GB Video Memory and Optimus]
