I still use my backup machine a lot and the old Nvidia 6100 video chip (and
some associated hardware/APCI oddities) make nouveau a non-starter so I have
been sticking with the native Nvidia drivers on both the backup and main
machine, at least until this popped up. It took me a full day of screwing
around between the two machine to clean up the mess caused by changing
drivers! At least I confirmed that the latest version of nouveau finally
fixes the irq dance that messed up the old Lenovo box with the old Nvidia
chip.
