Description:
Debian 9 (Stretch)

In summary, there has been improvement in the support for this hardware, but still does not work at its full capacity.

Compared to Debian 8, I could log in to GNOME 3, but the system still freezes when using applications.

The MATE desktop still works better, and does not freeze anymore.

Debian 8 (Jessie)

I couldn't use Debian with GNOME 3 because the screen always displays weird artifacts, and freezes in the login screen. I decided to reinstall Debian and chose MATE as the desktop environment, which is less graphic-intensive than GNOME 3, and the system is usable in this way. However, there are occasional freezes.

Even though I can use the system with MATE, I can't use applications such as Blender, SuperTux Kart, and other 3D applications. Nor can I use 3D in the Web browser. These things, however, are possible using the same video card on a Windows machine.

In summary, your computing experience will be frustrating using this video card.

Trisquel 7.0

The user brleoal reports Crash and freeze with GeForce 6150SE with nouveau driver, and adds:

"I've switched to Trisquel 7.0. When I login, the system crashes (no keyboard, no mouse pointer and my screen just show garble. I looked to dmesg this: dmesg:[ 68.627296] nouveau E[PBUS][0000:00:0d.0] MMIO write of x00820001 FAULT at 0x00b000 My card: 00:0d.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation C61 [GeForce 6150SE nForce 430](rev a2)."
