Created attachment 332150 [details]

after the switch to nouveau by default, my X server segfaults at startup.
This is with xorg-x11-drv-nouveau-0.0.12-3.20090206git945f0cb.fc11.i386
Comment 1 Ben Skeggs 2009-02-16 18:39:26 EST
There's two things wrong here.  Firstly, the kernel module that's loaded isn't new enough and causing the 2D driver to fallback to NoAccel mode.  An updated module should be available in rawhide already.

The second issue is the segfault in the fallback path.  I seen a commit to that area of code yesterday claiming to fix a similar sounding problem, so I'll push out a new 2D driver snapshot later today.

The ShadowFB-fallback segfault should be fixed in xorg-x11-drv-nouveau-0.0.12-1.20090216git7b25a30.

Did you sort out the issue with the wrong kernel module in the end?

Yes, it works now, thanks.
