Thread: Nouveau + kernel 3.16 + Nvidia GTX 580 = constant freeze!

    Unhappy Nouveau + kernel 3.16 + Nvidia GTX 580 = constant freeze!

    Nouveau + kernel 3.16 + Nvidia GTX 580 = constant freeze!

    This combination makes X freeze consistently. This is so sad, because I wanted to move from
    Ubuntu 12.04 to OpenSUSE 13.2, only to discover they chose kernel 3.16. Even debian Jessie, sigh.

    The only option for us GTX 580 users to make 13.2 work is to install Nvidia's proprietary drivers, but I would like to avoid that!

    I guess Ubuntu 15.04 is my only upgrade option now, unless someone here has any help to offer.
    OpenSUSE seems very promising, so I hope I can make it work somehow.


    Thanks,
    Morten

    You can make it work just install the NVIDIA drivers. Other wise help debug nouveau You can also try newer kernels.

    Why? That's pretty easy.

    I don't see what the problem here is, using a newer kernel is 2 lines of text - a single copy paste.
    Code:
    zypper ar -f http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/Kernel:/stable/standard/Kernel:stable.repo
    zypper --gpg-auto-import-keys in --from Kernel_stable kernel-desktop
    You'll get the 3.19 kernel and I'm using it right now myself without issues.
