Nouveau fails while loading BIOS signature and afterwards it fails to produce a list of valid modes:
(II) NOUVEAU(0): [dri] Found DRI library version 1.3.0 and kernel module version 0.0.11
(II) NOUVEAU(0): Initial CRTC_OWNER is 0
(II) NOUVEAU(0): Attempting to load BIOS image from PRAMIN
(!!) NOUVEAU(0): ... BIOS signature not found
(EE) NOUVEAU(0): No valid BIOS image found
(WW) NOUVEAU(0): No outputs definitely connected, trying again...
(WW) NOUVEAU(0): Unable to find initial modes
(EE) NOUVEAU(0): 1373: No valid modes.
The 'nv' driver works (no binary driver available for powerpc) on this box/card.
Attached: xorg.conf, Xorg.log, dmesg output.
