Description Daniel 2013-09-01 17:51:31 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
   without warning.
4. After reboot the same misery.

Additional info:

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.
