Got a question for the experts amongst us. It’s a general question but I’d like to use the bbswitch update which just arrived as an example.
So here it goes:
I am one of the unfortunate users of Bumblebee/bbswitch because my laptop has got Intel + nVidia and I am running a dual monitor setup. Took me a few days of reading/testing/configuring to get to a reasonably stable situation where both of my monitors work. But it has it’s issues.
So I was glad to see that just now an update for one of the components involved, bbswitch 0.8-259, gets offered. So I thought before installing, let’s check out what changed. Went to look for the package destination in the Arch repositories https://www.archlinux.org/packages/community/x86_64/bbswitch/ and from there I went to the projects github page https://github.com/Bumblebee-Project/bbswitch
But Github hasn’t been updated for 6+ years which I find hard to believe and in any case, where is the 0.8-259 update coming from?
And in more general terms, what is the best way to do a quick check on the regular updates so I can know what to expect? Bug fixes, new features, etc.)
