running without video hardware acceleration

Just installed devuan chimera x64 cinnamon (GTX970 card) and logged in and greeted with:

“Check your video drivers. Your system is currently running without video hardware acceleration. You may experience poor performance and high CPU usage”

What do I do with this?

Re: running without video hardware acceleration

If you have a more or less modern computer, I would install Q4os, it is the same debian with systemd, but with a "human" interface for installing non-free programs.
And so, you need to install a proprietary driver for the video card.

Maybe, you need install proprietary Nvidia driver. Just check this https://wiki.debian.org/NvidiaGraphicsDrivers.


What economists call over-production is but a production that is above the purchasing power of the worker, who is reduced to poverty by capital and state.

Re: running without video hardware acceleration

Yes follow Bullseye https://wiki.debian.org/NvidiaGraphicsDrivers#Debian_11_.22Bullseye.22 :

1. Add "contrib" and "non-free" components to /etc/apt/sources.list, for example:

# Devuan Chimaera ( = Debian 11 "Bullseye")
deb http://deb.devuan.org/merged/ chimaera main non-free contrib

2. Update the list of available packages, then we can install the nvidia-driver package, plus the necessary firmware:

$ sudo apt update
$ sudo apt install nvidia-kernel-dkms 
$ sudo apt install nvidia-driver firmware-misc-nonfree

3. Restart your system to load the new driver.
