    nouveau graphics driver freeze

    Hi,

    I've installed a fresh copy of Ubuntu 18.04 using the default GNOME desktop and drivers.

    graphics hardware: NVIDIA Corporation G84 [GeForce 8600 GT] (rev a1)

    Unfortunately it runs very unstable on my hardware and I encounter many graphics issues. The worst (and most annoying) of them is an occasional desktop freeze. In that I can still move the mouse pointer, but cannot interact the the GUI. Switching to a console using Ctrl+Alt+F3 works, but it might take quite long. I've found the following error message in /var/log/kern.log

    Code:

    Re: nouveau graphics driver freeze

    According to Nvidia's site, the 340.xxx should be the one that you need. That driver is in the repositories. You can get and install it from there. Do NOT d-l it from the Nvidia site!

    Re: nouveau graphics driver freeze

    Thank You for Your response. I already tried that driver (installed via the "Software & Updates" - "Additional Drivers" GUI, as recommended by Ubuntu), but unfortunately it doesn't seem to support Wayland at all and neither could I set the custom mode-setting for my monitor to get it working in X11.
    Wayland support is required because I'm using the machine for application development targeting Wayland. So I most likely can't use the NVidia driver, but will have to use nouveau.
