frequent freezes with NVIDIA hardware
Closed, WontfixPublic

Description

Hello, I have a bug both on live usb and after installation.
Pure os freezes many times for a short time, which looks like fps drops
This is not observed in live usb troubleshooting mode

There are several error messages during startup:
[1.849620] nouveau 0000:01:00.0: firmware: failed to load nvidia/gp107/gr/sw_nonctx.bin (-2)
[1.849658] firmware_class: See https://wiki.debian.org/Firmware for information about missing firmware
[1.849695] nouveau 0000:01:00.0: gr: failed to load gr/sw_nonctx
[3.155098] nouveau 0000:01:00.0: DRM: failed to create kernel channel, -22
[3.251718] sd 8:0:0:0: [sdb] No Caching mode page found
[3.251851] sd 8:0:0:0: [sdb] Assuming drive cache: write through

My configuration:
Nvidia 1050
CPU: xeon e5450
RAM: 8 GB ddr2

Please, help with this problem, i can't use Pure OS

This is unsupported hardware, you probably need proprietary firmware for nouveau driver...

I'm sorry, we don't support any hardware that requires proprietary firmware. Your best bet is to install and use Debian with non-free repo enabled.

Thanks for help
