Xorg.0.log from nouveau crash
Description of problem:
Updated to new kernel yesterday; desktop no longer comes up at all - boot process just sits on a blank screen with a flashing cursor. Xorg appears to be spinning in a cycle of not being able to start, but constantly retrying.
Xorg.0.log (attached) appears to indicate a problem reading from a bios:
(II) NOUVEAU(0): Attempting to load BIOS image from PRAMIN
(II) NOUVEAU(0): ... appears to be valid
(II) NOUVEAU(0): BIT BIOS found
(II) NOUVEAU(0): Bios version 60.86.47.00
(--) NOUVEAU(0): Parsing VBIOS init table 0 at offset 0xC4A1
(EE) NOUVEAU(0): ========== unknown reg 0x0002130C ==========
(EE) NOUVEAU(0): ========== unknown reg 0x00021218 ==========
(EE) NOUVEAU(0): ========== unknown reg 0x0002004C ==========
(EE) NOUVEAU(0): ========== unknown reg 0x00020060 ==========
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Booted to kernel-188.8.131.52-170.2.35.fc10.x86_64 and it works great.
Thanks for the bug report. We have reviewed the information you have provided above, and there is some additional information we require that will be helpful in our diagnosis of this issue.
Please attach your X server config file (/etc/X11/xorg.conf, if available) as individual uncompressed file attachment using the bugzilla file attachment link below.
Could you please also try to run without any /etc/X11/xorg.conf (if you have one) whatsoever and let X11 autodetect your display and video card? Attach to this bug /var/log/Xorg.0.log from this attempt as well, please.
Finally the version of xorg-x11-drv-nouveau would also helpful.
We will review this issue again once you've had a chance to attach this information.
Thanks in advance for taking the time to provide this information.

It now also doesn't work in Rawhide:
I'll attach an Xorg.0.log from a recent attempt; looks like it errors in a totally different way now on Rawhide but is otherwise identically broken.
I don't have an /etc/X11/xorg.conf (well, I do now, but only to select the 'nv' driver since nouveau is broken), and I assume my previous log is still ok.

Xorg.0.log from nouveau crash in rawhide.
Sorry for that, a recent Xorg update broke all versions of nouveau prior to 0.0.12-34. Can you update to that?
Yup, updated - seems to work fine again, cheers!
