Bug#683807: bbswitch
Hi Ben,

I've seen the title has changed.

The first title (segfault while using mv ... ) was chaotic , i know.
But "bbswitch causes instability" is not a correct title.

Indeed i tried:

a) use with nvidia driver + bbswitch . This lead to a crash.

b) i tried uninstalling nvidia stuff, bbswitch and bumblebee (aka normal
system. It's like a fresh installation). It crashed.

c) i tried reinstalling bumblebee but disabling bbswitch (aka always use
nvidia driver without the auto-remove-driver feature known as bbswitch). It
crashed again.


d) i tried to use debian stable (i installed it on another partition on the
very same hard disk). It still crashes.

So i think the problem is *not* bbswitch. The problem must be something
hardware related. My notebook (Asus K52jc) must have some bad supported piece
of hardware, i think that the problem is in some module(s).
This/these module/s is/are part of either 3.2.x kernels and 2.6.x kernels.

Atm this notebook is almost inusable :(
I really appreciate your activity here, please tell me if more information is
needed to find where the bug is.
