How To : Fix Nouveau Graphics Weirdness
« on: June 07, 2014, 12:33:36 AM »
This How To will explain and fix the nouveau graphics weirdness that has plagued VSIDO from the beginning.  For whatever reason, nouveau caches images in the memory of the card and when logging into VSIDO, you can get some interesting rainbow looking screens that last just a second

This How To will show you how to fix it.

This has to be run outside of Xorg and lightdm so first exit everything,  logout and then and drop to tty1

Code: [Select]
ctrl + alt + f1
Next we need to kill lightdm and Xorg

Code: [Select]
sudo systemctl stop lightdm
Next we need to create an xorg.conf

Code: [Select]
sudo Xorg -configure
This copies it to /root/ and we need to copy it to X11 this way

Code: [Select]
sudo cp /root/ /etc/X11/xorg.conf
That's all... just reboot with

Code: [Select]
sudo shutdown -r now
and Profit! 

You should never see the graphics bonanza again...
