Description of problem:
While trying the nouveau driver to see if it works better than nv, I tried
turning on the Randr12 option (as recommended in a post on the fedora-list).
It is certainly different, but I can't call it better. Instead of getting
a rotten resolution, the system apparently freezes up. The last line in the
X log is:
(II) NOUVEAU(0): Attempting to locate BIOS image in PROM
I guess the attempt wasn't successful :-).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
(II) Loading /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers//nouveau_drv.so
(II) Module nouveau: vendor="X.Org Foundation"
compiled for 126.96.36.1991, module version = 0.0.10
seems to be 100%
Steps to Reproduce:
1. see above
apparent system lockup
A 1920x1200 display would be nice :-).
See bug 446458 for my nv driver experience on same system.
Also, without the Randr12 option, nouveau behaves identical to nv
(i.e. a 1204x768 display).
I'll attach what there is of the X log written before the crash.

The log from nouveau+Randr12 crash
I ran into the same problem. I was able to fix this by grabbing the nouveau
source and rebuilding the rpm.
Closing bug. This should really work now with current releases. If not, please reopen with new logs from the updated drivers!
