I've tried using both a Radeon 570 and a pair of 460s.
Neither time was I able to get the system up.
There is nothing I would like better than to get rid of nouveau - - - as
as I plug the 5th monitor (4k) in I've got uptime down to less than 28
More commonly the uptime is under 12 hours and as it takes about 35 to 40
minutes to set everything back up that's just far too much time wasted.

If anyone can help me figure out why the pair of 460s won't work (think the
needs a newer pci implementation but dunno) I would love to hear it!!!!

(I have - - I think -- - - just thrown in the towel on trying to compile a
kernel with
some specific commands to enable nouveau debugging - - - another 5 or 6
hours down the tubes. The 1050 Ti card is from 2016 and one would think
it would be fully supported some 4 years later - - - - but not so! - - -
yes I'm
grumpy - - - - far too much time poured down a hole with nothing to show
it - - - I use these systems - - - - they are not somewhere I want to live

Thanking one and all for their ideas and encouragement!!!!
