Comment 3 Gene Stuckey 2009-03-26 18:17:05 UTC
When I boot with nouveau.modeset=1, then it works fine (so far at least).

this is with:
  xorg-x11-drv-nouveau-0.0.12-16.20090326git01cee29.fc11.i586
  kernel-2.6.29-0.258.rc8.git2.fc11.i586

Comment 8 Ben Skeggs 2009-04-09 05:01:07 UTC
Are you able to attempt this again with the most recent versions of both the kernel and xorg-x11-drv-nouveau and report what you see?

Thanks!

Comment 9 Gene Stuckey 2009-04-09 23:46:49 UTC
I've tried with the latest rawhide with the same behavior as noted before. It works with nouveau.modeset=1, but without that, Xorg consumes 100% of the CPU and it remains a blank screen.

  kernel-2.6.29.1-54.fc11.i586
  xorg-x11-drv-nouveau-0.0.12-25.20090408gitd8545e6.fc11.i586

Comment 10 Bug Zapper 2009-06-09 12:34:38 UTC
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.

Comment 11 Ben Skeggs 2009-08-24 00:37:55 UTC
Kernel modesetting is now the preferred and default path in rawhide, the userspace modesetting paths are now considered deprecated upstream, so closing this as fixed in rawhide.
