Re: How many people need to use the proprietary nvidia driver ? (Or other non kms driver ?)

Or some other video driver that doesn't support kernel mode switching.

DON'T reply otherwise, I don't want to hear a debate on the free
versions versus proprietary or anything else.

If you are using the proprietary nvidia driver or some other non kms
equipped driver, how are you finding F12 ?  Ie do you experience
freezing when you access some panel items ?

Thanks


I tried the Nouveau driver on a new laptop but it didn't support 3D for Stellarium or games. I see that there is some open source 3D but I couldn't find the rpm. When there is an RPM I will try it. (Gallium)

I have an old laptop that is running the Nouveau driver but it's response is slower than under F7. I will test the Nvidia driver and if it responds faster, then I will leave it on. (Multimedia)

At work I need 3D support.

Desktop at home needs 3D support.

4 machines - 3 Nvidia 1 Nouveau (for now)
