nouveau driver hangs but nv works [NV5M64 10de:002d (rev 15)]
Last modified: 2010-06-28 08:26:05 EDT
Description of problem:
F11-preview cannot start the X server with default configuration. Booting to runlevel 3 and manually configuring Xorg to use nv works.
lspci output for the video card is:
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation NV5M64 [RIVA TNT2 Model 64/Model 64 Pro] (rev 15)
01:00.0 0300: 10de:002d (rev 15)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
With no xorg.conf, after startx this is what /var/log/messages looks like:

Mmm, can you try booting with nouveau.noagp=1 on the kernel commandline and see how things are?
With nouveau.noagp=1 X server couldn't start (again the screen was filled with white/gray stripes), however system was responsive. I could switch to a tty and login.
Okay, thanks. I'll retest my NV5 when I get home, it worked last I tried but guess it got broken somewhere along the way :)
Can I get your /var/log/Xorg.0.log after booting with nouveau.noagp=1? My nv5 is working just fine with the latest packages.
With updated kernel 188.8.131.52-134.fc11.i686.PAE and xorg-x11-drv-nouveau-0.0.12-35.20090507git1072103.fc11.i586, nouveau.noagp=1 can start the x server but still cannot do YUY2 overlay.
I'm attaching Xorg.logs with this version. If you need the logs from F11-preview let me know.
Created attachment 343829 [details]
Xorg.log with nouveau.noagp=1
Created attachment 343830 [details]
Xorg.log without nouveau.noagp=1
What exactly is the problem with the overlay? This is the first mention of it.
tvtime refuses to start without the overlay -- if this is what you ask. It works fine with nv.
tvtime starts just fine here, can you post the output from attempting to start tvtime on a console?
I can't recall the exact wording of the tvtime error, but it was about hardware YUY2 overlay requirement.
tvtime now starts fine with latest packages from the repository and kernel-PAE-184.108.40.206-152.fc11 and xorg-x11-drv-nouveau-0.0.12-37.20090514git9656762.fc11 from koji. Not sure if any of these updates fixed it but cannot reproduce anymore.
Feel free to close the bug with appropriate status, thanks.
Right, that's the error I thought you meant, which is odd since the nv4 overlay's always had YUY2 support :) In any case, thanks for the update. I'll leave the bug open for the agp issue at the moment however.
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:
Since this bugzilla report was filed, there have been several major updates in various components of the Xorg system, which may have resolved this issue. Users who have experienced this problem are encouraged to upgrade their system to the latest version of their packages. For packages from updates-testing repository you can use command
yum upgrade --enablerepo='*-updates-testing'
Alternatively, you can also try to test whether this bug is reproducible with the upcoming Fedora 12 distribution by downloading LiveMedia of F12 Beta available at http://alt.fedoraproject.org/pub/alt/nightly-composes/ . By using that you get all the latest packages without need to install anything on your computer. For more information on using LiveMedia take a look at https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/FedoraLiveCD .
Please, if you experience this problem on the up-to-date system, let us now in the comment for this bug, or whether the upgraded system works for you.
If you won't be able to reply in one month, I will have to close this bug as INSUFFICIENT_DATA. Thank you.

This message is a reminder that Fedora 11 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 11. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '11'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 11's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 11 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 11 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2010-06-25. Fedora 11 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
