    Phoronix: Recent Nouveau Improvements Thanks To A New Contributor

    The open-source NVIDIA "Nouveau" driver continues to be largely a community affair aside from occasional code/documentation dumps (and hardware supplies) from NVIDIA and then Red Hat also employing a few of the key contributors to the Nouveau DRM kernel driver and Nouveau NVC0 Gallium3D within Mesa. When it comes to Red Hat's Nouveau developers like Ben Skeggs and Karol Herbst, they started out as community contributors over the years to this driver. Fortunately, this year has brought another new contributor to the Mesa driver stack...

      Nvidia drivers is great, until you can't install it any more like with the Nvidia 304 drivers. They just don't work with Ubuntu 18.04. You have only Nouveau left to contend with.

        I really miss better performance for Fermi . I use a 580 (or is it 850) that works really slow with nouveau and if I try using any Wayland desktop the computer freeze.

            Yes, Fermi reclocking would be really needed since those cards boot to their lowest power levels.

            (it's 580)

                I had to install a server yesterday and the ATI card went bad.

                So I had to throw in a spare Nvidia card 750 Ti SC.

                It wouldnt even boot to TTY getty on MESA with Nouvaue.

                So I had to SSH in to install Nvidia blob spyware.


                Good god after being on AMD MESA I remember how shitty the Nvidia Linux experience is.

                I am tempted to put some of my pulled hair back on my head and just buy AMDs to replace the remaining Nvidias in my LAN.

                The AMD Linux experience is stable as fuck. Id trade a few FPS for stability and reliability any day.

                I wish Nouveau could do more -- no thanks to Nvidia.

                    Wasted time of bright developers. As long as they do it for fun and know it's totally wasted time it's of course fine, but I really hope they don't have any illusions with nouveau and Nvidia.
