Description Rik van Riel 2009-06-10 18:59:09 UTC
Description of problem:

When using the nouveau kernel driver (in the initrd) on the Dell D620 laptop, the screen has black vertical lines all over it.  In fact, it appears that every other pixel is black.

Not using the nouveau kernel driver (Adam was friendly enough to remove that from my initrd while we were trying to narrow things down) results in a properly working display again.

Even the text console seems to suffer from the black vertical lines.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

kernel-2.6.29.4-167.fc11.x86_64
xorg-x11-drv-nouveau-0.0.12-36.20090514git9656762.fc11.x86_64

Hardware:

Dell D620 laptop, with
1440x900 display,
nVidia Corporation G72M [Quadro NVS 110M/GeForce Go 7300] (rev a1)

Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot the system
2. type in whole-disk encryption password (at this point the screen is still good)
3. watch the subsequent screens come up with black lines
  
Additional info:

With the 'nv' and 'vesa' drivers in X, the screen has black lines but takes up the right size.  Using the 'nouveau' driver in X, together with the nouveau driver in the kernel, does not work at all.

Problem occurs for me too with the same chipset
nVidia Corporation G72M [Quadro NVS 110M/GeForce Go 7300] (rev a1)

When I start X I get blue/grey/white blooming with every other vertical line black. When I switched to a console it was blue with white text.

Also in F12 final.

Comment 11 gurukiran venugopal 2010-01-17 07:26:49 UTC
Same here, even with the latest update.

Comment 12 Pavel Rosenboim 2010-03-18 07:51:37 UTC
Sadly, F13 alpha is still unusable on Dell D620.

Comment 13 Ben Skeggs 2010-03-18 22:59:55 UTC
I've found a user who's been willing to go through the pain required to debug/fix this remotely with me recently, and fixes will soon make it upstream.  F12/F13 will both get the fixes once things have been tested properly.
