Description Jan ONDREJ 2009-03-25 14:15:39 EDT
Description of problem: After testing new nouveau driver using Live CD for test-day, when tryed to startx and then exit from graphics environment, my font in text mode was broken. There was some random "|" visible on whole screen. By running "setfont" command as any user without parameters fixed my font and I can normally work with my PC. Second startx works well, but returning to text mode breaks my font again. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): Live CD from test-day: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/QA/Test_Days/2009-03-26 How reproducible: always (tested 2 times), but still return from startx, switching to CTRL+ALT+F2 works without problem. Actual results: ||||||||||||||| ||||on whole screen Expected results: normal font Additional info: My smolt profile ID: 6638ff1f-19dc-4578-ba2e-5907f8de5839

I see this too. Smolt:http://www.smolts.org/client/show/?uuid=pub_a2ad8b5d-b422-43f5-84d1-d0607e2dfcb7 I didn't see this until the second time I stopped the xorg. I then started and stopped it s3veral more times and it came back with normal fonts.
Comment 2 Gene Stuckey 2009-03-25 19:38:02 EDT
I see this as well with a Quadro NVS 135M. Smolt: http://www.smolts.org/client/show/pub_cd9ee5b7-022f-4a39-a281-4bd9c1594c27 First time I stopped Xorg, worked fine. Second time I saw the vertical lines. I started/stopped Xorg a few more times and continued to see the lines.

Comment 4 Ben Skeggs 2009-03-25 22:15:10 EDT
You guys all appear to be on G80-series cards, so hopefully I just fixed this in xorg-x11-drv-nouveau-0.0.12-16.20090326git01cee29.fc11. There's RPMs up http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=1259057 for testing :)
Comment 5 Craig Robson 2009-03-25 23:24:38 EDT
I installed the and xorg-x11-drv-nouveau-0.0.12-16.20090326git01cee29.fc11.x86_64.rpm over the live CD and I didn't have the problem. I didn't have time to shutdown and run the test another time.
Comment 6 Jared Smith 2009-03-26 07:25:41 EDT
I'm seeing this as well on a GeForce 8600M GT (rev a1) on an Apple MacBook Pro. I was able to take a picture, and will test the updated nouveau driver (on top of the LiveCD) later today.

Created attachment 336779 [details] Poor photo of the console after stopping X Sorry about the poor quality -- this is a photo of the console after stopping X for the first time.
Comment 8 Jared Smith 2009-03-26 21:25:45 EDT
The updated RPM from Koji does solve this problem on my system. I tested the Nouveau Test Day LiveCD with the updated xorg-x11-drv-nouveau driver (the .16 version) and it worked great!

The build that fixes this is tagged for dist-f11, so it's effectively in rawhide: it'll be in as soon as the beta freeze is lifted. so, closing. thanks for testing! -- Fedora Bugzappers volunteer triage team https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers
