Created attachment 119680 [details] output dmesg with system freezes complaining about nouveau This bug has originally reported to the bugzilla of opensuse and I was asked to report it here. Ref: https://bugzilla.opensuse.org/show_bug.cgi?id=954746 In this installation of Tumbleweed running Kernel 4.3: 4.3.0-1-default #1 SMP PREEMPT Mon Nov 2 15:35:09 UTC 2015 (7b374a4) x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux I get system freezes (generally necessitating hard reset) and impossibility to run more than one user session at a time. The attachments of journal and dmesg show the error message received. I allow myself to cc the developer of opensuse Takashi Iwai firstname.lastname@example.org. This system worked well with 3.x kernels and up to 4.2 With the current kernel I get the lockups. Board is an old Ashrock 939DualVsta and Graphics is Nvidia GT216 based on primary PCI-e slot of the mainboard.

(Moved to the correct product and component) Could you please get a full dmesg output (by using netconsole if you have a second computer, or by blacklisting Nouveau, cating dmesg or /dev/kmsg to a file and then loading Nouveau manually)? Maybe your attachments are enough for Ben to figure out what is going wrong, but some more information shouldn't hurt.

A bit embarrassing but I do not really know what to ask there. I think I know how to blacklist nouveau: # echo "blacklist nouveau" >> /etc/modprobe.d/50-blacklist.conf && mkinitrd && reboot Then, if I do understand rightly: cat /dev/kmsg > kmsgresult.txt Then modprobe nouveau (from the CLI) and then again? cat /dev/kmsg > kmsgresult2.txt Is this what you need? Unfortunately my skills are quite limited, so I prefer to ask.

And then when you reboot, you can access the file (which hopefully didn't end up corrupted). Maybe `journalctl -k -b -1` will contain all the information as well (given that the previous boot, was one that froze)?

Created attachment 119699 [details] journalctl with -k-b-1 Some more info. For what is the output of cat: I do yet not understand when to blacklist nouveau. should I just blacklist it, then start it by hand with modprobe nouveau? Once the system freezed I cannot input anything anymore. So I guess I have to blacklist before and start manually? Then provoke the freeze?

This bug really looks like https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=92892 and seems to be linked to a modification in the nouveau driver between kernel version 4.2.4 and 4.3.0
