Fedora docs for nvidia optimus laptop do not work on my laptop with fedora 37


I am following the instructions on https://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/quick-docs/how-to-set-nvidia-as-primary-gpu-on-optimus-based-laptops/ to configure the nvidia card as primary GPU. Everything goes fine till point 9, when reaching point 10 I am still getting for vendor Intel and for renderer Mesa.

I am fairly new using linux, so if you have any sugestion on how to proceed or what commands to used in order to get usefull outputs, it would be great.

Thank you in advance and kind regards,

Note that those instructions are only effective when the desktop is using xorg and have no effect when using wayland.
If you were to log in with xorg then the nvidia card should be seen as primary.

Thank you for your reply, I have swicht it following the next documentation:
