#736: Crash upon shutdown, switching to console using Nvidia Optimus and Intel
driver
-------------------------------+-------------------------

     Type:  System Defect      |     Status:  new
 Priority:  critical           |  Milestone:
Component:  XOrg Configurator  |    Version:  9.1-RELEASE
 Keywords:                     |
-------------------------------+-------------------------
 I'm using an NVIDIA Optimus card, and upon installing PCBSD it correctly
 detects the card and switches to the integrated Intel. X then starts, and
 I can use the system normally, however if I either try and switch to the
 console, or shutdown the system, it immediately freezes. The crash is not
 just the display, but the entire OS freezes, and I have to do a hard
 reset. e.g. I can't even SSH into the system to try and shut it down
 remotely.

 By laptop is a Samsung Np550P5C (http://www.samsung.com/uk/consumer/pc-
 peripherals/notebook-computers/high-performance/NP550P5C-A08UK).

 I've also tried this under FreeBSD 10 current (to see if it has been
 fixed), after installing X and configuring it to use the Intel driver, it
 starts up fine, but then crashes upon switching to the console or upon
 shutting down.

 If you need any more information, or what me to send any files from my
 computer then please let me know.
