http://crunchbanglinux.org – I'm running #! r2011125 on a quad-core desktop with 3GB of RAM and two LCD monitors connected by DVI to an Nvidia 9600GT, using the proprietary drivers. Iceweasel performance is so bad I may as well be running KDE on a 486. I could remove one of the monitors and use the on-board graphics over VGA. That's my last-resort solution. I understand that the Nouveau drivers do not control the fan speed or downscale the GPU correctly, so that it tends to run hot. I don't know if this is the case with my setup, so I'd like to try the Nouveau drivers. Would this be the way to do it:Re (HowTos)
