Comment 2 Ilia Mirkin 2013-09-06 20:22:50 UTC
Can you explain what steps you take in order to make this happen? It seems like vgaswitcheroo turns off the nvidia card, and then Xorg sends it an ioctl (which I would have assumed should fail) which breaks since the card is off.
Comment 3 Tobias Klausmann 2015-01-17 00:08:09 UTC
still a problem with newer kernels (3.17, 3.18)? there were really many fixes in between that could fix this...
