Acer Aspire 4530's Nvidia card and screen tearing

Post by Mongoose55 » Wed Nov 14, 2018 13:45

Hi all,

I had just newly install Sabayon Linux plus updated.
My Acer 4530 laptop is experiencing screen tearing with not just this Sabayon distro but with many other distros too.
I had tried MX Linux, Linux Mint and Manjaro. So I guess that my Nvidia graphic is not liking the open source nouveau
driver.
I hope that you can help me to correct my annoying screen flickering situation every 30 seconds. It get bad when I am
playing videos in Kodi.What terminal code should I use to get rid of this annoyances.

Thanks in advance
