Description of problem:
I've been successfully running the nouveau driver for a while. Today I upgraded to xorg-x11-drv-nouveau-0.0.10-2.20080408git0991281.fc9.i386. After this my computer fails to boot.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Computer locks-up and I get the message:
Fixing recursive fault but reboot is needed!
My video card is an nVidia Corporation NV18 [GeForce4 MX 4000].

Doesn't crash any more with 2.6.25-0.234.rc9.git1.fc9.x86_64. Nouveau driver
starts up fine as long as I disable "Randr12". I know this driver is still in
development but I'm curious if anyone else has had success with "Randr12".
