[Bug 994203] [NEW] 10de:0247 [Acer Aspire 9300] Xorg freeze with Nouveau


You have been subscribed to a public bug:

i'm experiencing random freezes.
the system freezes at seemingly random points and leaves me with only a cursor.
i can reboot through CTRL+ALT+SysRq REISUB, and it does close open programs properly, though unsaved data is lost.

it happened while 
-using firefox with 5 tabs open, but otherwise idle; 
-using Firefox, scrolling down a long webpage. the scrolling seemed to overflow and firefox greyed out, then system freeze;
-using LibreOffice, 1 document open, editing a textbox, specifically clicking away from the textbox.

i did play some youtube videos both full screen and in a tab, but didn't
notice performance issues. didn't invoke a freeze.

i am at a loss what commands to type to get more info but am willing to
