Nouveau is the open-source NVIDIA graphics driver that has been in development for years as a community-based, reverse-engineered implementation of NVIDIA's closed-source Linux graphics driver. NVIDIA took a neutral stance on Nouveau until 2013 when it began supporting the project with limited code and documentation beginning to appear. Nouveau consists of an open-source kernel DRM driver, Gallium3D drivers, and xf86-video-nouveau DDX.
