Subject: [gentoo-user] nouveau loads but freezes later, nvidia won't load
Date: Tue, 19 Oct 2010 17:34:24
1 I've been using the nouveau video driver for a while, but lately video
2 has been freezing with X at 100% CPU and the only way out seems to be
3 ssh'ing in and rebooting. The issue seems to be the same as described
4 here:
8 Disabling acceleration with the kernel parameter nouveau.noaccel=1
9 works but video quality is terrible.
11 I tried to switch to the nvidia driver but X won't load and Xorg.0.log
12 says it can't find a CorePointer device. I remember having the
13 CorePointer problem with nvidia in the past but I can't remember how I
14 fixed it. Does anyone know how to fix either driver?
