On this hardware, the nv driver doesn't work at all (garbled display).
(e.g. Fujitsu/Siemens Celsius Mobile H notebook).
Please attach logs + configs. Might be fixed in 4.2.0. If not though,
I'll need to change it's default driver to something else.
oh, try disabling accel and/or swcursor first.
Still broken with 4.2.0 and noaccel
The log doesn't have anything unusual (this is 4.2.0-6.36) - from the log, it looks like
everything is ok, just the display isn't.
The graphics chipset seems to be paperweight (like everything NVidia ;) ).
The vga driver does the same mess unless it's in 320x200xu8.
The only way to get this POS card to work appears to be using fbdev.
Confirmed to work with fbdev and nothing else.
Btw: I won't have access to this piece of hardware anymore after today (it's a test box
from Siemens, and being returned this evening).
Dont have hardware to test with.
