So long nouveau

Tom Horsley-5
Well I've been using my newly installed fedora 26 boot partition
for all of a half day, and the nouveau driver just completely froze
up the display (exactly the same thing that happened on fedora 24
with nouveau). I guess I'm off to look through the logs for any
info and then install the rpmfusion nvidia binaries.

I'm having the same problem with Wayland enabled.

Although I don't get the error message in this link, it might be the same bug. I have one of the affected graphics cards.

But as far as I know.. The compatibility maybe depend on graphics card
vendor's customization.... Once upon a time I 've got a piece of nv
card by GIGABYTE, and the CUDA driver can only run as expected on
Fedora 23/24, but not Ubuntu or even CentOS.

Feel like dying with driving the graphics card on Linux....

No, that's just the problem with NVidia cards.  Use an AMD or Intel
graphics and you're very unlikely to have a problem.

I did find some messages in the log, so I added
this bug:

Yes, I AGREE!

But one of the key features upon NV cards is CUDA, which we cannot use
it on other platforms. Though OpenCL is another solution to achieve
GPGPU resolutions, but it is hard to learn and hard to use, at least,
for me..

I started to have this problem in F25 (after some recent upgrade, not
from the beginning) but it seems gone (knock on wood) in F26.

I'm having the same problem at work on an Ubuntu workstation (16.04 I
think?) but only when using gnome (or mate). No problems yet under Unity.
So perhaps something in gnome triggers the crash in nouveau.

The whole system doesn't crash, only the X-server (or wayland) and you
can ssh into the system from another machine and run dmesg. The last
things you see are nouveau error messages.

I can't use cuda on fedora either, because gcc that comes with fedora is
way too recent for cuda. I'm not sure now, but about a year ago gcc-5.2
was the highest version cuda would tolerate, and that was experimental.
Regularly it wanted gcc 4.9 I think. Don't know now, but I doubt cuda
will like gcc-7.x.

Maybe a good way to work around such issues is to use a docker container?


Thanks,

Oh, excellent suggestion! I didn't know they provide docker images.
Thanks!
