Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 620889
black display on T510 with nvidia graphics - nouveau
Last modified: 2011-06-28 11:01:29 EDT
Description of problem:
On my Lenovo T510, with the two latest updates to kernel on F13 I get
no (black) display. I am able to login blind so X is really running and
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
every time, just boot with one of the non-working kernels.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. see above
model name : Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 CPU M 620 @ 2.67GHz
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation GT218 [NVS 3100M] (rev a2)
This error is there regardless of using docking station or not.
Can you try 188.8.131.52-32.rc1 from koji? You'll have to manually install it with the command "yum --nogpg localinstall <kernel>"
The http://kojipkgs.fedoraproject.org/packages/kernel/184.108.40.206/32.rc1.fc13/x86_64/kernel-220.127.116.11-32.rc1.fc13.x86_64.rpm kernel seemingly work... but hard to tell
since there I am unable to get access to my encrypted disk.
So, yes, I get the X prompt for inputting the disk encryption passphrase,
but unable to test anything further.

Try adding "rdblacklist=aesni-intel" to the boot options.
rdblacklist=aesno-intel made no difference. Passphrase not accepted (seemingly),
a boot of 18.104.22.168 works nicely both for X/nouveau and encrypted disk.
I tested with
as well. Same encryption story with that one.

that's aesni-intel, not aesno-intel
Opps, my bad.
With rdblacklist=aesni-intel I get access to my LUKS partitions/lvm again.
And X/nouveau seems to work ok as well.
This is with http://kojipkgs.fedoraproject.org/packages/kernel/126.96.36.199/34.fc13/x86_64/kernel-188.8.131.52-34.fc13.x86_64.rpm
Should I greate a separate bug for the LUKS issue?
This message is a reminder that Fedora 13 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 13. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '13'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 13's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 13 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 13 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2011-06-25. Fedora 13 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
