How do you fare with xorg-x11-drv-nouveau-0.0.12-21.20090403git11be9a9.fc11?
This is more than likely fixed already, can you confirm that things improve after installing updates?
He was running from a live CD. Davide, you can try with the Fedora 11 Beta (not sure the driver in that would be new enough) or snapshot release to give it a shot. Just running the Rawhide installer but not actually installing may also be enough of a test, I think, as it should try to run in graphical mode with nouveau.
I have the same video card and X/nouveau is crashing on shutdown/restart.
Sometimes the screen just freezes ( mouse still moves) and other times i see " freeing fifo 0" or similar printed out to the screen.
Except for the damn shutdown/restart problem the driver appears to be working great.

This is a separate bug, can you file it as such and provide /var/log/Xorg.0.log etc? Also, try and reproduce with the nv or vesa drivers!

screen corruption on shutdown/restart
I applied the updated initscripts-8.95-1 from koji and i am able to shutdown/restart now. See Bug: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=495326
The shutdown/restart is still NOT so smooth ( fast BIOS beeps and screen corruption .. see attachment) but it does shutdown/restart now but not without a struggle.
Note: The vertical line you see on the desktop moves horizontally across the screen upon shutdown/restart.
Bruce: Ben asked you to file a separate bug. Please do. Discussing multiple different bugs in one report simply doesn't work and leads only to confusion.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.
