A bit about my situation
I am relatively new to Fedora (however not completely new to Linux) and i am currently trying to figure out how to set up my Fedora 36 installation to be my daily driver.
Everything is going relatively smoothly. However I am currently running into some trouble getting my system to actually utilize my dedicated NVIDIA GPU and not the integrated Intel GPU.
What i have tried
I initially looked up a solution and found this guide:
And i followed it and everything seemed to work, up until i rebooted my system after using EnvyControl to switch to my NVIDIA GPU. My system seemed to note have switched at all.
When i run the following command:
glxinfo | egrep "OpenGL vendor|OpenGL renderer"
OpenGL vendor string: Intel OpenGL renderer string: Mesa Intel(R) UHD Graphics 630 (CFL GT2)
And on top of this the NVIDIA x server application tells me that i have 0% GPU load.
I have tried searching the Ask Fedora forum to see if anyone has encountered this problem before me. The best match I can see is this:
And from what I can tell it never actually comes to a conclusion.
My machine specs
I am currently using a Lenovo Legion Y530-15ICH and the only upgrade i have done to it is that i have swapped out the SSD for a larger one.
What I need
I would very much appreciate any ways of making my current approach work. I am also open to any other possible solutions to the overarching problem of my system not utilizing my NVIDIA GPU.
Any help is welcome and appreciated.
