Description Alex Stewart 2006-03-04 18:51:38 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)

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure X to use the nv driver on a machine with an Nvidia 6800GS-based 
2. Start X
Actual results:

  Garbage on screen

Expected results:

  Working X display
