Good to know. Thanks for sharing! Good thing is that I'm perfectly OK living
with GRUB's text mode! :-)

Indeed, it's not related to this question, but it's totally related to
my next one! :-)

[…updating the thread's subject…]

I've had the very same "system freezes" problem since the very beginning
(I'm using Bspwm window manager on a Guix System, btw).
It mostly happens when I'm using graphical applications: Libreoffice, Grisbi and
Icecat on some JS-heavy pages (visiting Gitlab issues, most of the time).

When it freezes, I cannot switch to a different workspace and the
applications on the current workspace stop responding… but the pointer
moves normally and music keeps on playing for a few minutes.

I don't know if it's possible to disable Nouveau entirely or to use the
proprietary/evil driver, just to make sure Nouveau actually causes the issue.

Even if it only happens 2 or 3 times a month, any fix would be welcome!
