    Phoronix: Running Clear Linux With NVIDIA's Proprietary Driver Stack

    Following a Phoronix reader pointing out a NVIDIA driver setup guide for Clear Linux, I decided to have a go at it to see how well NVIDIA's proprietary graphics driver stack can work with Intel's high-performance Linux distribution.

    You must be rally pissed to use the gnome3 desktop and nvidia cards when socializing my YouTube channel.
    You are an IBM troll who is jealous of my high performance XFCE desktop.

    You are the stupid moron. My intel iGPU does not need any patches. The open source graphics drivers combined with the fast and ligtht XFCE desktop and low latency Debian Kernel, my system is much more faster than even NVIDIA RTX TITAN which is very laggy closed source software. I get 56 FPS on Counter Strike at 1367x768 and 34 FPS on Half Life 2 running Steam Proton. More info on my youtube channel https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q-fTMKrmKM0

    I got the updated Clear Linux desktop reinstalled with Nouveau at the moment, but the PTS tests hangs the machine on the Unigine tests. I don't think its PTS per se, but an old GF7 card. uname shows 5.1.xxx native, so that meets the NVidia installation criteria. As soon as I get a solid test result to complete on Nouveau, I will swap over to the 2 different NVidia driver sets available. If it keeps hanging on the tests I will swap the GF7 out for something more current.

    I really like the Clear Linux performance, just got to get used to the integration requirements.

    NVIDIA themselves fixed their driver during the rc stage and it was working fine at release http://rglinuxtech.com/?p=2552

    This is their usual thing. As long as you aren't using rc kernels you are fine for NVIDIA support.

    What?

    Where on that page does it state that the nvidia driver needed patching for a kernel release?

    Please no, I really dislike sites like wired, ars techinica, the verge, with lots of images and wasted space.

    It is confusing, it takes time to skim through it know what is written about, here in phoronix I read the headline and know if it is a interesting news to me (like RadeonSI change on LLLVM usage) or not (like RedHat/Scientific Linux new version)

    Surely you wound up with software rendering if nouveau was blacklisted, and nvidia didn't load.

    openSUSE Tumbleweed also has a short and relatively easy page about installing nvidia drivers "the hard way".
