Not sure which files you mean here. Can you eloborate?

is what I'm talking about.

Where are those files? If they're already put in the right place as part
of the rpm package it should be mentioned in that readme...

anyway, so to use prime offloading I need a laptop with an intel, and
bleeding edge nvidia card, or a desktop with the same, but bumblebee
outdated and no longer maintained?

I can't help but consider this crazy.

I haven't said that. Turing is only needed for DynamicPowerManagement,
not for
NVIDIA's PRIME Render Offload feature. is there a "nondynamic" powermanagement for cards before turing?

- why would anyone who has something like a GTX2060 in a desktop use
onboard intel card for graphics, so he'd have to do prime offloading

Desktop? We're talking about laptops here.

we're talking about nvidia turing cards here - so far I've only seen
those in high end gaming rigs, where the mainboards don't even HAVE an
onboard intel card, but definitely support crossfire... or maybe the
occasional alienware "bricktop" (pseudolaptop - way to heavy and
powerhungry to actually use it like a laptop, i.e. without its

Anyway, so **how** do I set up a Leap 15.1 machine so that the desktop
is rendered through the intel card and I can offload openGL stuff to the
nvidia card by setting those __NV* variables?

I've tried suse-prime that comes with Leap 15.1, I've tried suse-prime
from X11:Xorg, all I've managed to get to work is either "pure" intel
graphics or "pure" nvidia.
