Comment 2 Ben Skeggs 2009-03-25 23:23:07 EDT
Are you able to boot with "nouveau.modeset=1 drm.debug=1" and attach the resulting /var/log/messages to this bug?
Comment 3 Stewart Adam 2009-03-26 00:00:32 EDT
Will do tomorrow - thanks for the quick reply!
Comment 4 Jared Smith 2009-03-26 11:12:38 EDT
I'm seeing the same thing on a GeForce 8600M GT (rev a1) on a Macbook Pro. I'll attach three photos (of poor quality, unfortunately) showing what I'm seeing. In short, I don't see the plymouth boot, and the colors are all wrong once X comes up. I too will try with "nouveau.modeset=1 drm.debug=1" and attach the resulting /var/log/messages.

Created attachment 336823 [details] Kernel complaining about nouveau.modeset being unknown The kernel complains that this is an unkown boot option, but apparently sees it OK anyway.
Comment 6 Jared Smith 2009-03-26 11:21:10 EDT
Created attachment 336827 [details] Bad colors with nouveau.modeset=1 This photo shows the bad colors in X with the noueveau.modeset=1 kernel command-line option.
Comment 7 Jared Smith 2009-03-26 11:22:12 EDT
Created attachment 336829 [details] Bad colors with nouveau.modeset=1, zoomed in In this photo, I zoomed in a bit so you could see that you can barely make out the text and icons on the screen, and that it isn't just random colors.
Comment 8 Jared Smith 2009-03-26 18:38:50 EDT
Created attachment 336923 [details] /var/log/messages with nouveau.modeset=1 and drm.debug=1 Here is my /var/log/messages file after booting with both nouveau.modeset=1 and drm.debug=1 on the kernel command line.
Comment 9 Stewart Adam 2009-03-29 13:39:13 EDT
Created attachment 337177 [details] /var/log/messages with nouveau.modeset=1 and drm.debug=1 (gzipped) Here's my /var/log/messages file. I gzipped it since the original was huge (just over 12 MB)!
Comment 10 Ben Skeggs 2009-03-30 21:06:01 EDT
Thanks guys. I'd be curious to know how things are now with kernel-2.6.29-21.fc11? There's some changes in there that may possibly help.
Comment 11 Parag Warudkar 2009-04-12 13:19:31 EDT
F11 snapshot live cd works OK my 8600M GT Macbook Pro, the test day Live CD did not - please test.
Comment 12 Ben Skeggs 2009-04-12 22:16:09 EDT
(In reply to comment #11) > F11 snapshot live cd works OK my 8600M GT Macbook Pro, the test day Live CD did > not - please test. Sweet, I'd say this issue is likely resolved then. Though, I'll wait to hear from the reporter before closing. Thanks!
Comment 13 Stewart Adam 2009-04-12 23:50:05 EDT
I'll try to test this on Wednesday and let you know how it goes.
Comment 14 Jared Smith 2009-04-15 11:52:22 EDT
The kernel/xorg drivers in F11 snapshot 1 LiveCD work great with nouveau.modeset=1 set on the kernel command-line. A big hats off to all who helped get this fixed!

Comment 16 Stewart Adam 2009-04-15 21:44:03 EDT
Yup, works here to with the UEFI test day live image. Thanks for the quick fix!
