Xorg.0.log.old, its the last log from when I tried to use nouveau.

Description of problem:
I updated my box last night and all of a sudden X will just sit there and restart over and over again.  The only thing X related was the new nouveau driver.  I'm attaching my xorg log files.  I had to switch to the NV driver, which is working fine.

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

How reproducible:
Actual results:
X restarts over and over again.

Expected results:
X doesn't restart

this is my xorg.conf.  I've just commented out the nouveau part and put NV in, so its the same config that was being used with nouveau.

Same problem here, I reported it in bug 466796, comments 6 to 8 (see them for the config file and xorg log when things fail with the new nouveau snapshot).
Comment 4 Ben Skeggs 2009-05-04 00:05:01 EDT
Are you able to test the latest nouveau updates and report back?  If it's still not working, can you post your /var/run/nv*.log file here?
Comment 5 Alex Kanavin 2009-05-06 05:28:01 EDT
The latest F10 nouveau works good here.
Comment 6 Matěj Cepl 2009-05-06 10:14:15 EDT
Josef? Does it work for you? (and how is btrfsck doing? :))
Comment 7 Josef Bacik 2009-05-06 11:14:33 EDT
I won't have access to the box until tomorrow, so I will test then.  btrfsck is not yet fixed :).
Comment 8 Ben Skeggs 2009-08-23 20:25:08 EDT
Any update?
Comment 9 Josef Bacik 2009-08-24 09:55:59 EDT
