Description Jim Cornette 2008-04-06 20:19:38 EDT
Description of problem:
When trying to use the nouveau driver I get a couple of accented above a
characters followed by a character flashing which looks like a flashing cent
character. Afterward I need to press ctl-alt-delete and the characters stay
flashing until the system POSTs again.

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

How reproducible:
start in runlevel 5 or boot into runlevel 3 and start X

Steps to Reproduce:
1. type startx at login
2. note flashing aac (accented character a plus flaching cent symbol
3. press ctl-alt-delete to reboot system
Actual results:
Flashing aac with no screen output

Expected results:
A working driver and a hint of 3D capabilities.
