Info from test day wiki:

GeForce 7600 GS [10de:02e1] (rev a2) 
http://www.smolts.org/client/show/pub_7f150c25-6c62-417e-96ea-8cd88d87b5f7

reporter, what monitor(s) do you have connected to the system, connected via which output(s)? The log indicates the driver can't find any connected display. thanks!

Comment 2 Mark D 2009-03-28 20:03:30 UTC
I'm using an Apple 23" Cinema Display using the DVI output.

I used the test day live cd to try to run nouveau, but I have gentoo installed on the same hardware (that I use everyday), using x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers-180.29 running at 1920x1200 resolution. HorizSync: 28-96, & VertRefresh: 43-60

To get the same hardware working with the nv driver, I have to add the following to my xorg.conf Monitor section:
 Modeline	    "1920x1200" 155.0 1920 1984 2016 2144 1200 1203 1206 1212 -HSync +Vsync

Comment 3 Adam Williamson 2009-03-30 19:43:52 UTC
Thanks, I think that should be enough info - Ben will ask if there's more that he needs.

Comment 4 Ben Skeggs 2009-04-03 05:47:24 UTC
Are you able to install the NVIDIA binary driver and get a trace of how it initialises your card and email it to mmio.dumps@gmail.com?  A quick howto:

mount -t debugfs debugfs /sys/kernel/debug
echo 4096 > /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/buffer_size_kb
echo mmiotrace > /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/current_tracer
modprobe nvidia
cat /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/trace_pipe > ~/nvidia.kmmio
startx

There's a bit more information at http://nouveau.freedesktop.org/wiki/MmioTrace also.

Thanks,
Ben.

Comment 5 Mark D 2009-04-05 00:26:34 UTC
My system didn't have /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/buffer_size_kb so I skipped that step (let me know if that's imperative).

Another concern is that /var/log/messages said:
Apr  4 17:00:55 zeus mmiotrace has lost events.

mmiotrace mailed.

Comment 6 Ben Skeggs 2009-04-07 10:12:44 UTC
Hey, thanks for posting the dumps.  Stuart Bennett (malc0 on irc) has some patches he think may help, I've packaged them at: http://koji.fedoraproject.org/scratch/bskeggs/task_1282023/

Can you give this a shot and report what you see?  Thanks.

Comment 7 Mark D 2009-04-11 06:22:34 UTC
Tested and same result as before, X does not initialize with no valid modes.

Comment 8 Bug Zapper 2009-06-09 12:43:23 UTC
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.

More information and reason for this action is here:

Comment 9 Mark D 2009-10-16 00:24:15 UTC
Tested with rawhide on Oct 13, 2009, and this bug was no longer present. Closing.

Comment 10 Adam Williamson 2009-10-16 19:50:22 UTC
is it still present in current F11?
