Hello,

I got problems with getting nVidia GeForce GT710 to work correctly. First of all I wanted to use propetriary nvidia driver (nvidia-drivers), but I came across this bug: https://bugs.gentoo.org/667362
Then I decided to try nouveau and it works in most cases, however screen freezes from time to time. I can move mouse cursor, but I cannot do anything else than pressing a reset button. I found this in logs:

Code:

Can I somehow fix that problem, or force nvidia-drivers to work properly?
I used to use nvidia-drivers only and never had problems with it. This is the first time I cannot load them and start X.

Thanks in advance!

Does it work if you disable compositing and desktop effects?
I have a GT710 card in my system (driver: nouveau) and switched off compositing/effects because I also had frequent freezes (mostly the same as you described but also hard freezes where not even the mouse pointer was movable any more). I never had an nvidia graphics based system (had also GT210 and geforce/nforce onboard graphics systems) that runs stable with plasma and compositing/desktop effects, neither with nvidia-drivers nor with nouveau. However disabling all that stuff did not bother me much.
