/var/log/messages with kms enabled

Description of problem:

Trying out F12 Alpha x86-64 from a liveusb. Playing an ogv movie with totem results in garbled output. In one run I could see the movie but some rows at the top were garbled. In another run (after a reboot) the entire movie was garbled.

Movie plays fine with nomodeset=1.

Will attach /var/log/messages for kms enabled as well as disabled cases.

Do you still see these issues with updated kernel, libdrm and xorg-x11-drv-nouveau ?

Comment 3 Matěj Cepl 2009-11-05 17:14:20 UTC
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 (at least F12Beta, but even better if the very latest versions).

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 bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 12 development cycle.
Changing version to '12'.
