    NVIDIA NVS 4200M overheating at Linux Mint 21.3 MATE

    If the Nouveau driver seems to work for you why use the nvidia one? Nvidia Linux drivers are not the best, depending on the GPU. Only real reason to Switch from Nouveau is if 1. It does not let the card work or 2. does not preform the needed tasks. So my advise would be to go back to the...

    Partion related query.

    I think you will run into problems without a /home partition. You will be using the home file on your /(root) partition which may fill up quite fast depending on what you install and do. Most Linux programs use the home directory for some files and a lot of configuration happens there. These...
