Ok, good to know! Thank you!

The other open option though, is the stretch-backports package, you mentioned. I think, I try this first.

Hi! I have mainboard ASRock N68-GS4 with the built-in NVIDIA GeForce 7025 / nForce 630a GPU. Stretch-backports obviously does not work. nouveau is working well with the simple graphics, but hangs my host when playing videos using vlc.

The system is upgraded to Buster, so downgrade is not possible in easy way (well it would be better if some warning would be issued before the upgrade). The simplest for me would be to quickly buy working graphic card. I do not need anything special, but something working with the existing free software in Debian: 3d games, video players (vlc, mpv) etc. Can somebody recommend something working for me?

If your only problem is with playing videos using vlc ... I would simply choose another player. Smplayer in my view has better features than vlc anyways.

If you choose SMPlayer, it can use either a rather aging mplayer, or mpv as the player backend. I recommend mpv, myself.
The MX Linux repositories: Backports galore! If we don't have something, just ask and we'll try--we like challenges. New packages: Calibre 3.47.1, QMPlay2 19.09.03, wine-staging 4.15, Telegram-desktop 1.8.4, Pale Moon 28.7.0, Waterfox 56.2.14

1. I have another problem with smplayer and online tv m3u8u playlists. VLC just worked.
2. Unfortunately not. After some time I figured out that nouveau hangs my PC randomly.

Just bought the cheapest, but new nvidia card, disabled the onboard and everything works again but with the nouveau driver! Finally free from proprietary crap!

Too late for me, but if somebody need 304xx for buster, you can try this:

https://www.if-not-true-then-false.com/ ... a-guide/4/

To download patched driver installer:

Code: Select all
wget https://nvidia.if-not-true-then-false.com/NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-304.137-patched-kernel-4.14.run

Please tell if you succeed!

Thank you sena!

I would like to try this, because I still have the problem and refrained from using Debian because of it. ... But this seems unfortunately way over my abilities.
