Description Nrbrtx 2013-12-24 10:22:15 UTC
Description of problem:
I have Sony VAIO F13Z1R with Nvidia GT425M.

lspci | grep VGA
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation GF108M [GeForce GT 425M] (rev a1)

I installed Fedora 20 on my laptop. I have only nouveau driver.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot system
2. Do some work
3. Reboot system (Fedora will exit, GRUB will be shown)

Actual results:
I see many identical lines on console with text
[ time.TTTTTT ] nouveau W [    PFIFO][0000:01:00.0] INTR 0x01000000: 0x00000005
and these messages prevent system reboot.

Expected results:
Fedora will exit, system rebooted, GRUB is shown.

Hmm, I thought I accidentally fixed this issue a while back while looking at something else.

What kernel are you running with here?

Comment 2 Nrbrtx 2014-01-07 15:41:16 UTC
Hello, Ben! Thank you for reply.

I'm on Fedora 20.

I get these error messages on kernel-PAE-3.11.9-300.fc20.i686 and 
kernel-PAE-3.12.5-302.fc20.i686. Sometimes the aforementioned messages prevent reboot, sometimes system reboots normally after some amount of these messages.

Recent yum upgrade updated kernel to kernel-PAE-3.12.6-300.fc20.i686 (nouveau version is the same). 
Now my system reboots quickly without aforementioned messages.

Comment 3 Ben Skeggs 2014-01-07 22:06:45 UTC
The relevant bits of nouveau for this issue are in the kernel, so that makes sense :)  I'm reading correctly that the issue is now resolved then?


Comment 4 Nrbrtx 2014-01-08 18:05:10 UTC
Yes, bug is resolved with new kernel.
Thank you!
