because we don't want to spend our time maintaining a large database of
what cards to use kms for and what cards not to?
why aren't you optimistic, anyway? nouveau bugs are generally fixed
This particular chipset is not well supported. In fact, the last time I
looked, nobody, including nvidia, seemed to be supporting it. Way back
when we did the nouveau test day, it was accepted that modeset would not
work with this chip. I was pleasantly surprised to see that the driver
in kernel 48 can recover from whatever problem it has but messages like
"expect strangeness" and "GPU stuck", don't sit well with me. see
for current status.
P.S. I do want to thank you and Ben for taking this problem seriously.
