Comment 1 Kalev Lember 2010-05-16 13:42:04 UTC
This appears to be fixed in xorg-x11-drv-nouveau-0.0.16-6, but can you also push that build as an update for F-13 in Bodhi?

Also, I have a comment about the fix in 0.0.16-6:
-Requires:  libudev-devel
+Requires:  libudev

I think better option is to remove the Requires: libudev line completely. xorg-x11-drv-nouveau rpm package will automatically get a dependency on libudev.so.0, which is enough to make sure that the libudev package gets pulled in. According to Fedora packaging guidelines [1] we should rely on automatic deps instead.

Ah thanks, I've submitted the update now.  Thanks for the hint Kalev, I'll look
into it and consider changing it when I do another "real" update :)
