Hi, I'm using Fedora 25. I searched around very much about it but didn't find any proper solution. My laptop has two graphic card and I want to disable my integrated card permanently and use NVIDIA all the time, with any application including gnome... My laptop is Asus and I have no option in BIOS to disable it.

Thank you.

I ended up doing the exact opposite, I uninstalled nouveau and I'm only using i915. What are you planning on doing with your gpu?

intel card is not enough for the system. even my firefox videos don't work well. and due to not enough proccess ability and memory, it uses my cpu and RAM, so it causes over-speed my fan.

You need to know which kernel module the graphic card, you can do that using lsmod on the terminal, for example lsmod will list i915 on my pc which is the kernel module for my Intel card, with that information you can add a file on the kernel module to avoid to load. Add a file on /etc/modprobe.d/ this file can be call blacklist.conf and add a line blacklist i915

You can run a test by adding a it on you kernel at boot. For more information look at
