Just looking at this helpful page here:

A little bit confused about what to do. If I want my computer to use NVIDIA's proprietary drivers, is installing the (free) bumblebee a prerequisite for installing bumblebee-nonfree? Or, should I only be installing only the latter?

i.e., if I had both repos and all dependencies installed, would I do

yum -y install bbswitch bumblebee,

(reboot?) and then

yum -y install bumblebee-nvidia

or only the latter command (and reboot)?

It says "The previous commands install bumbleblee with the nouveau drivers. If you want to install bumblebee with the NVIDIA proprietary drivers you must also follow these instructions: ", which makes me think you need to run both.
