I've upgraded to Fedora 12 recently... As the binary drivers for my old old old card (nvidia_96xx) are not supported yet (or maybe any more ;-) I've decided to give nouveau a try.
It starts like a charm, but shortly after (a few minutes) everything goes bunkers - fonts instead of being black are light grey or pink ;-), bitmaps are corrupted. In a second I'll attach a screenshot of my screen after about 10-15 minutes.
The kernel (log to be attached as well) is screaming like this:
[drm] nouveau 0000:01:00.0: PGRAPH_ERROR - nSource: PROTECTION_ERROR, nStatus: INVALID_STATE
[drm] nouveau 0000:01:00.0: PGRAPH_ERROR - Ch 1/0 Class 0x0039 Mthd 0x0184 Data 0x000011ce:0x000011ce

As you see lspci claims it's NV18-base card, while the driver says:
[drm] nouveau 0000:01:00.0: Detected an NV17 generation card (0x018a00a3)
Any other data I can provide?
