In my sabayons, i use NVIDIA in one installation, and Nouveau in other. Both works!
You may use NVIDIA or nouveau, but not in the same installation.
the driver that you not use should be removed or put inside blacklist.
for using nouveau, the easy manner is using rigo, remove ALL NVIDIA
packages, and install nouveau, mesa and gallium packages.
after this, carry out these commands:
- Code: Select all
eselect opengl list
sudo eselect opengl set (HERE, USE THE NUMBER CORRESPONDING TO XORG)
then with a text editor, check if the driver "nouveau" is placed into the file /etc/X11/xorg,conf
in the place just previous was nvidia (driver="nvidia"
) if not, edit as root and substitute nvidia by nouveau. Close the session as re-open, or best reboot to the last kernel.
