I'm just guessing here, but I think the main reason no-one pays more attention to this is that there's not an awful lot of point. All switchable graphics systems have an Intel chip for power saving and an NVIDIA or ATI for performance...but on Linux, the NVIDIA or ATI chip is probably only going to perform appreciably better than the Intel one with a proprietary driver. And given past history with things like RandR 1.2, the proprietary drivers aren't terribly likely to grow support for an X.org standard switching framework even if one gets written. So why bother? If you've got a switchable laptop you may as well just lock it into Intel and enjoy the power saving, or if you need performance, lock it into the other chip and use the proprietary driver...
Oh gosh.. so much for a discussion ON TOPIC. Who cares if it's sucks or blows... I'm far more pissed that you guys just spent 2 pages discussing something that's not worth reading at all.
I'm using a K42Jc notebook, so far I've only turned off the discrete GPU and I'm wondering where I can use the nVidia proprietary drivers with restarting Xorg(It doesn't need to be seamless, at least for me!) is it stable at the moment? Thanks :) Oh and btw, please post a link to a guide(or similar)
