Description Jim Cornette 2007-03-22 22:00:24 EDT
Description of problem:
About a day back the nv driver was working fine at 1280x1024. After updates two
days ago, I started getting system lockup at boot. now with the patched driver,
I get an instable system which eventually crashes fully. It starts to lose
applications a piece at a time before the total lockup.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
xorg-x11-drv-nv-2.0.0-2.fc7

How reproducible:

Log into the system. See system only in 800x600 after patched version.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Allow system to boot in runlevel 5
2. see system locked up and not responding.
3. Reboot system with same results in runlevel 3 and startx
  
Actual results:
Before patched driver a total lockup. After patched driver, limited resolution
folloed by system services being corrupted until final lockup.

Expected results:
Normal resolution.

Additional info:

I am running MGA as primary and NVidia as secondary display.

Nouveau will only show blank screen on screen 1

This is what the nouveau did with the patch added. Before the patched driver,
nouveau would exit the server in a crash gracefully and did show a background
momentarily before exit. (About 30 seconds). No is only the card memory screen
or POST displayed on the monitor.

This is the log using the nv driver before the eventual lockup of system.

First I noticed the network was down. I then tried to change to vt which
resulted in the system log. No network was present to send mail or submit
report to bugzilla. Before switching to VT, I thought the system was still up
and running. It was locked up at the VT switch though.
