Hi, first great work on bb3! Shipping with bbswitch will make everyone happier! :)

I've been using bbswitch for a while recently without the nvidia driver, just disabling it. And I grabbed bumblebee3 now and rebooted. bbswitch loads, but doesn't disable the card.

I tried rmmod nvidia and get this error:
ERROR: Module nvidia is in use by [permanent]

I also get this error after shutting off bumblebeed. Any suggestions on how to once again be allowed to turn the card off?

It sounds like you are running a mailine kernel on Ubuntu. Just use a stock kernel, compile it yourself or grab it from Precise.

Yes I was running mainline, just reverted to stock and everything just works, thank you very much!
