Nouveau driver periodic hang

Postby Nick Payne on Tue Apr 23, 2013 1:41 am

Running Mint 14 amd64 with an nVidia GTX650 Ti video card. Maybe once every couple of days, the GUI locks up. Sometimes I can still Ctrl+Alt+F1 to a console and login and reboot, but usually even that doesn't work and I have to power cycle the machine. When this problem happens, if I look at syslog after rebooting, I usually see entries like the following:

I've had endless troubles with the nouveau driver. I'm convinced it's more bug-riddled than a termite mound. I'd recommend installing the binary driver and giving nouveau the flick.
