Just had to enable nonfree and install firmware-misc-nonfree to enable the free graphics driver. 🤔

@njha Unfortunately we don't have enough information about Nvidia cards to write free firmware for them.

@alexbuzzbee @njha nouveau should be FOSS though, even though it might have shit performance it should at least work? Weird

@Matter @alexbuzzbee You're right, it does work without installing the proprietary package. That said, the performance is so bad I might actually prefer if it didn't work :P.
