Description Stefan Becker 2009-03-27 17:17:00 EDT
Description of problem:

When kernel parameter nouveau.modeset=1 is given the display goes blank during kernel boot. It stays blank, i.e. even X start doesn't show anything. The machine doesn't lock up though, i.e. you can still safely shut it down with CTRL-ALT-DEL.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kernel-2.6.29-0.258.2.3.rc8.git2.fc11.x86_64
xorg-x11-drv-nouveau-0.0.12-10.20090310git8f9a580.fc11.x86_64

Smolt profile for the test machine attached as URL.

Does the non-kms support work ok?  Also, can you post me your /var/log/Xorg.0.log from after starting X in both kms and non-kms modes.

Thank you!

Thanks.  Can you give kernel-2.6.29.1-34.rc1.fc11 a try?
Comment 7 Stefan Becker 2009-04-01 07:01:55 EDT
Retested with kernel-2.6.29.1-35.rc1.fc11.x86_64 from koji. Works like a charm now, thanks!
