Alberto, is this intended to be brought in by default? Or should it be a Suggests?

Will need a security review if we want it.

Alberto Milone (albertomilone) wrote :

That is an alternate dependency i.e. nvidia-prime (>= 0.5) | bumblebee, and it's only meant to allow users to choose between nvidia-prime and bumblebee. We do not need or support bumblebee.

Note: nvidia-prime and bumblebee are mutually exclusive ways to deal with hybrid graphics.

Looks like the reason this is being pulled in is because nvidia-340 is built on amd64, i386, and armhf, but nvidia-prime only exists on amd64 and i386.

Given that bbswitch depends on ACPI, and hybrid Intel/Nvidia graphics seem pretty unlikely to exist on armhf, I'm going to drop the dep there and see if this clears up.
