Can you test xorg-x11-drv-nouveau-0.0.12-33.20090501gitf69b34a.fc11, this should be fixed there.

I sent you an e-mail, but got no answer. I'm asking here then. Is there a LiveCD or LiveUSB image with this version of the driver? If it doesn't exist, where can I get the packages to install this version on the system working off the 20090325 Testday LiveCD?

Comment 3 Ben Skeggs 2009-05-11 00:03:27 UTC
Sorry about that!  I don't believe that version made it to a new livecd, you can grab the latest build of xorg-x11-drv-nouveau from http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/buildinfo?buildID=101314 however.

Comment 4 A.C.Heron 2009-05-11 07:55:29 UTC
With the latest version X refuses to load. It gives the following error in Xorg.0.log:
(EE) EXA(0): driver's EXA version requirements (2.5) are incompatible with EXA version (2.4)

What other packages do I need to update?

Comment 5 Ben Skeggs 2009-05-11 09:04:28 UTC
Ouch, since you're using the livecd the earlier nouveau packages may work for you still, the build for -33 is http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/buildinfo?buildID=100747.

If you still see the ABI mismatch message, xorg-x11-server-Xorg and friends will need updating.

Thanks again!

Comment 6 A.C.Heron 2009-05-11 11:57:54 UTC
The old build works fine. Should I close the bug?

Comment 7 Ben Skeggs 2009-05-11 12:41:20 UTC
Thanks for that :)  Will close it with this comment!
