xorg-x11-drv-nouveau crashes system
Last modified: 2013-09-02 02:38:56 EDT
Description of problem:
After running a system update (yum update) of xorg-x11-drv-nouveau-1.0.7-1 to current xorg-x11-drv-nouveau-1.0.9-1 my system crashes a few minutes after reaching graphic welcome screen or logging in as user. The system is then forced to reboot.
No whatsoever traces in logs. Only found in /var/log/messages some binary symbols which are all zeros when viewing it with xxd.
My graphic card is
[root@bl4ckh0l3 ~]# lspci |grep -i VGA
02:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation G92 [GeForce 9800 GT] (rev a2)
The system worked fine with all previous versions of Fedora and nouveau driver (F17 and F19, skipped F18).
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install xorg-x11-drv-nouveau-1.0.9-1 or later
2. boot system
3. a few moments (sometimes a bit longer) system will be forced to reboot
4. After reboot the same misery.
Last functioning version: xorg-x11-drv-nouveau-1.0.7-1
Definitely broken versions: xorg-x11-drv-nouveau-1.0.9-1 and 1.0.9-2
No results for versions between 1.0.7-1 and 1.0.9-1
Random system crashes persist, even with older versions of xorg-x11-drv-nouveau. No logs.
