[Solved] Nouveau error spam on boot

Hi, I have been using arch on my laptop for about a year now and I recently did a fresh install. The first time I tried it, everything went fine until I installed cinnamon and GDM (GNOME Display Manager). When I started GDM and logged in, it froze after about a minute and after rebooting it wouldn't start again. I did a clean install again (maybe I did something wrong) and now I have a completely clean install.

The first time I boot I get spammed with an enormous list of errors. These are the first and last lines of the 14k lines long error log:

It looks like it's the GPU driver who has issues. My laptop has a Nvidia GTX 850M and Intel integrated graphics.

I know that when I installed arch for the first time on this laptop, I also had some graphical issues. I know there was a point where the installation USB would give a black screen and I think I fixed that by using custom kernel parameters. However I'm not sure since that's a long time ago.

My previous installation didn't even have Nvidia drivers installed because of the issues I had with it, and my system ran perfectly fine with the Intel Graphics. So is there a way to fix this problem by forcing to use the Intel graphics? Or could there be another solution?

EDIT: My system even froze by executing lspci. I took a picture of it: http://imgur.com/BjxYEc6

Re: [Solved] Nouveau error spam on boot

Not an installation issue, moving to NC.

Since you have both intel and nvidia graphics, have you looked at this?


Sakura:-
Mobo: MSI X299 TOMAHAWK ARCTIC // Processor: Intel Core i7-7820X 3.6GHz // GFX: nVidia GeForce GTX 970 // RAM: 32GB (4x 8GB) Corsair DDR4 (@ 3000MHz) // Storage: 1x 3TB HDD, 5x 1TB HDD, 2x 120GB SSD, 1x 275GB M2 SSD

Re: [Solved] Nouveau error spam on boot

Yeah, my plan was on installing bumblebee with this installation. But I first want to get my system working with the Intel graphics since I know for sure that's working.

Re: [Solved] Nouveau error spam on boot

I think I solved the problem by adding nouveau.modeset=0 to the kernel parameters. The error messages at boot are gone, and I can execute lspci without my laptop crashing.

Re: [Solved] Nouveau error spam on boot

Thank you so much, R13N!!! I've been going crazy trying to figure out why Arch won't boot and hangs on lspci with nouveau errors. Adding nouveau.modeset=0 to the kernel parameters solved my error too.
