Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 184007
X11 nv driver broken for nvidia 6800GS
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:26 EST
Description of problem:
I have an Nvidia 6800GS PCIe video card. During install of FC5test3, anaconda
auto-detected this as an Nvidia NV41.0 chipset (which I believe is correct) and
chose the nv driver. However, the nv driver does not appear to work for this
card. When running the graphical installer, or when later starting X with the
nv driver after install, all I get is a screen full of garbage, and if I
attempt to switch back to a text console after this, I have no cursor and
scrolling does not work properly.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
(not sure exactly, whatever came with FC5test3)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure X to use the nv driver on a machine with an Nvidia 6800GS-based
2. Start X
Garbage on screen
Working X display
Sorry, this was an accidental duplicate submission..
There appears to be a bug in bugzilla which made it appear that the previous
bug was not submitted when it actually was.
