The thread title pretty much says it all. I tried idle=poll
via grub, to no avail. I had the same problem with the current stable driver and one that was current several months ago.
Debian's free nv driver works just fine. I've got no nvidia-* packages installed after purging them (apt-get remove --purge
, that is).
An NVIDIA card of a lower series (forget which) worked just fine with the then-current proprietary driver in the same machine until a cheesy fan bit the dust and the overheating GPU stank up my office.
Several hours of googling have gotten me nothing but eye strain.
Anyone have any idea how I might go about making this beasty work?
