X server log
Description of problem:
When using the nouveau driver, the detected screen resolution is wrong as it seems to be bigger than the visible area. xrandr reports the following:
Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1280 x 800, maximum 4096 x 4096
LVDS1 connected 1280x800+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 289mm x 21000mm
800x600 60.3 56.2
VGA1 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
TV1 unknown connection (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
The native resolution of the screen is 1920x1080, and attempts to force such a resolution have no effect.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I've attached the X server log. Please let me know if you need more information.

Gee, Sony make life fun don't they! On initial inspection it appears that you have one of those laptops where we have to fetch the EDID for the panel from ACPI.
However, we never hit that codepath because your GPU/VBIOS have been constructed in such a way that an "older" method of detecting the panel mode succeeded, but contains an invalid resolution for your panel.
I'll look at providing a fix for this soon.
Can you give this kernel build a try: http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=2321029
I've now tried out the new kernel, and I've got some good and bad news :-)
The good news is that the resolution seems to have been detected correctly. However, there were two kernel oopses as soon as gdm was showing. I will attach the backtraces. I'm unsure whether they are related to the graphics stuff.
Many thanks so far!

kernel 18.104.22.168-11.fc13.x86_64 oops 2
I don't believe they're related to nouveau, however, it is possible if something really bad is going on. Can you install 22.214.171.124-11.fc13 from http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/buildinfo?buildID=183346 (same version as the scratch build above, but without the additional fixes) and see if you still get the oops?
Things seem to be a little more complicated... With the kernel from comment 7, the oopses from comments 5 and 6 do not occur. With the vesa driver, everything works fine. However, with nouveau I repeatedly get the following oops:
kernel: idr_remove called for id=0 which is not allocated.

kernel-188.8.131.52-34.fc13 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 13.
kernel-184.108.40.206-34.fc13 has been pushed to the Fedora 13 testing repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
If you want to test the update, you can install it with
su -c 'yum --enablerepo=updates-testing update kernel'. You can provide feedback for this update here: http://admin.fedoraproject.org/updates/kernel-220.127.116.11-34.fc13
Unfortunately, kernel 18.104.22.168-34.fc13 doesn't seem to work well at all. With mode setting enabled, the system freezes completely as soon as gdm is showing.
Without mode setting, the system boots fine but nouveau doesn't seem to detect the card. In /var/log/messages the following lines appear:
kernel: [drm] nouveau 0000:01:00.0: Detected an NV50 generation card (0x0a5480a2)
kernel: [drm] Initialized nouveau 0.0.16 20090420 for 0000:01:00.0 on minor 0
kernel: [drm] nouveau 0000:01:00.0: called without init
The X server then seems to fall back to the vesa driver. I'm attaching a new xorg log file.

X server log file for kernel 22.214.171.124-34
Nouveau can not work without KMS anymore, that's why it falls back to vesa. If you can get a kernel log from after the freeze, we can try and find what's happening. The good news is nouveau finds your resolution now, and other reporters with these laptops say it works, so there's likely something else wrong too.

Kernel oops after X server startup on kernel 126.96.36.199-34
Thanks for the info.
I've managed now to obtain a kernel backtrace after the X server freeze. This results from booting in mode 3 and then launching the X server manually. It freezes as soon it has cleared the screen and the screen then remains blank.
Do you have an X log that goes with that at all?
Created attachment 437811 [details]
No, the X log is empty and the output from 'startx' doesn't show any error messages.
Surprisingly, the X server also started up correctly once, but when I closed it, it hang again. There has also been a different oops when executing 'startx':

With kernel 126.96.36.199-37.fc13 there are no improvements as such. However, I got a more interesting X server log now. After executing 'startx' and the screen becoming blank, I killed the X server and got the attached backtraces.

Kernel oops after X server startup on kernel-220.127.116.11-47
There is no apparent behavioural change with kernel 18.104.22.168-47. Sometimes, the X server starts up correctly but then the kernel crashes when the X server is closing (without backtrace), or usually, the kernel crashes as soon as the X server is starting up.

The problem related to kernel crashes still exists, see comment 23.
Wow, impressive. First we get this error, followed by a second similar EDID error. Notice the text "Nvidia Default":

Then we get an oops in the SLUB allocator, with a traceback showing the block subsystem is trying to allocate memory, that has an impossible address in RBX:
RBX: 6544206169646976 == "eD aidiv"
But that's "vidia De" backwards. So somehow that string has corrupted the slab.
Assuming it completes, here's a kernel scratch build which may fix the problem, it's the only potential issue I can see. I can't test myself unfortunately, I don't have the hardware.

Excellent works! After this fix booting is without kernel oops :)
Finally I can use on Sony Vaio F11M1E nouveau, thanks a lot :)

X server log for kernel 220.127.116.11-44.fc13.x86_64
New problem with this kernel is that Nouveau Gallium 3d is not working, only software 3d acceleration.
Note: I have mesa-dri-drivers-experimental installed and with kernel 18.104.22.168-85.fc13.x86_64 hardware 3d acceleration is working without problems but with wrong screen resolution.
Thanks for letting me know, I'll push a proper update into the kernel today then.
Yes, there's a very good reason for you getting no acceleration. On certain chips there's a random, but very well known hang that we haven't been able to resolve yet. Acceleration has been disabled by default for now. You can reenable with "nouveau.noaccel=0" in your boot options. However, it's very likely you'll experience random hangs as a result.
