Xorg log, first start

Description of problem:
Card: nVidia Corporation NV11 [GeForce2 MX/MX 400] [10de:0110] (rev a1)
The X server tries to start up, and just sits there eating 100% cpu.
Killing it and trying to restart it again via ssh from another pc I get
Fatal server error:
Detected GPU lockup

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Also tried with 0.0.12-22.20090404git836d985.fc11

How reproducible:
Almost-always. I was once able to get to the desktop, open a terminal, and then it froze up.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot nouveau testing livecd
Actual results:
Blank screen

Expected results:

Additional info:
Might be related to bug #492819 (if I'm not mistaken the geforce4mx is just a higher clocked geforce2mx)

For some reason bugzilla won't let me get at the logs.. I'll take a guess at this being AGP madness.  How do you fare if you boot with nouveau.noagp=1 on the kernel commandline?

ben: logs should be OK now - it was a bad mimetype. You can fix this by hitting 'details' on the attachment and changing the mimetype to text/plain .

I am very sorry for taking this long to reply, but from now on replies should be faster.

I've tried with nouveau.noagp=1 on the kernel command-line and I still get a blank screen (also i got the message "unknown boot option nouveau.noagp=1, ignoring").

Also, with this version the entire system locks up when starting the X server (ping stops working).

Testing was done with the livecd-fedora-livecd-testday-20090414-i386.iso livecd, which has nouveau version xorg-x11-drv-nouveau-0.0.12-25.20090408gitd8545e6.fc11.i586 .
Comment 5 Ivo Anjo 2009-04-25 18:52:38 EDT
I've finally installed rawhide on one of my pc's and retried with version xorg-x11-drv-nouveau-0.0.12-31.20090421git47bb00f.fc11.i586 and it's working properly now, thanks!
