Nouveau works ok on my old GTX 260.
A little less 3D FPS than the binary blob.
2D desktop seems faster

Why would you choose Nouveau over propretiary drivers?

What's the advantage, other than "muh freedums"?

Wayland support

i use it daily w no problems, but i don't game much
>>
>>51446291
Last time I checked you get a framebuffer driver for virtual console with nouveau. Look up KMS.

If you use the binary driver from nvidia you are stuck with a text console. Not a big deal.


I try nouveau every couple of years, typically when I move to a new LTS distro or buy a new PC. I've always had stability issues and moved to the binary driver without bothering to troubleshoot.

Binary driver has been good to me for a long time, much longer than nouvaeau has been around.

>>51445899

I have a GeForce 9, no reclocking required, but I still get up to 4x better gaymen performance with the blob.

I also have some old WINE games that lock up when using nouveau, but that's probably mesa + the buggy game's fault.

>>51446291

Nouveau is the only option if you want to use Wayland.

I'm curious...how is Nouveau legal? Shouldn't nVida shut them down for reverse engineering, stealing their proprietary code and making it open source?
>>
>>51447151

Reverse engineering for the purposes of compatibility is legal. No proprietary code was stolen because it was supposedly reverse engineered in a "clean room" way by monitoring communication between the system and the GPU.

>>51447132
One of the only good logos in the Linux world too.
>>
>>51447171
That makes no sense... no to you, but to the loop hole of this "clean room". I mean It's good for us.. but what's the logic behind this that makes it ok?
>>
>>51447233
Well, Is it illegal to run Linux on a windows laptop?
>>
>>51447257
with secure boot enabled, and no signed key, it may be...
>>
>>51447283
Well nvidia lacks secure boot and key signing on their grapphics cards.
>>
>>51447132
>I'll make the logo!

Using nouveau for 2+ years (openSUSE). Never had any issues with it. But i'm not playing any games on it.
>>
If you don't play games but have an Nvidia GPU then it's good. So if you got a Laptop with Nvidia iGPU then you should try Nouveau.
>>
>>51447151
nVidia even submits patches to Nouveau every once in a while.
>>
Nouveau lacks video hardware acceleration on many models and power management. I wish I could use it because muh freedoms but it would literally kill my battery.

Secure Boot is not a block, even Microsoft lets you use Linux on a Surface with Secure Boot enabled.

for some old as fuck cards yes, for anything from the 5xx series onward its still shit
