I do not know where to start. This has been frustrating. Today, december 2014, I own an Alienware 14, it uses an NVIDIA GK107M [GeForce GT 750M] and an Intel Corporation 4th Gen Core Processor Integrated Graphics Controller. It uses the optimus technology.
I work a lot with openGL and I have not managed to install nvidia drivers other than nouveau and they are not even being recognized eventhough the module is loaded.
Additionaly my libmesa is giving me hell and in the event I get to compile an opngl application it shows a black screen where a month ago I could render pretty stuff.
I have tried installing nvidia privative drivers and both registering them and not registering them in the dkms modules. I have blacklisted nouveau and even intel drivers.
I am stuck in a dilemma. If I get to work with intel graphics, only openGL <= 3 will be supported and only if I get to work my nvidia card I will be able to work with openGL > 4
I've been searching for days for this issues and have tried almost everything I can, I even reinstalled ubuntu. I've worked with linux ever since I own a computer and I don't want to work on windows just because of this.
Please help me.
