I noticed that bbswitch and bbswitch kernel modules seem to get installed by default, even if no bumblebee/optimus chipset is present (Tumbleweed)
Whats the rationale behind?
zypper search --recommends-pkg is your friend.
tlp - https://build.opensuse.org/request/show/900571 brought the change
Feels more like a bug....
For any default choice there will always be someone who does not agree with this particular choice. bbswitch is about power saving so it sounds logical that it is recommends by tlp. If you do not need it, you can override it.
Sure. I have more laptops that dont need it, and just one whch does.
Do you have suggestion how to reliably detect bumblebee/optimus chipset?
No. Just implicit - see if prime-select is installed ;-)
Well, suse-prime no longer has a "Recommends" for bbswitch. I was forced to remove it. See
for more details.
So I wouldn't recommend to install it on any system automatically. I suggest to open a bugreport ...
I have already opened a bug report some time ago: https://bugzilla.opensuse.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1190631
