Description Pawel Moll 2009-11-30 09:05:11 UTC
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

My system:

$ X -version

X.Org X Server 1.7.1

X Protocol Version 11, Revision 0

	Before reporting problems, check http://bodhi.fedoraproject.org/
	to make sure that you have the latest version.

The card:

01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation NV18GL [Quadro NVS 280 SD] (rev a2) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])
	Subsystem: nVidia Corporation Device 0190

	Status: Cap+ 66MHz+ UDF- FastB2B+ ParErr- DEVSEL=medium >TAbort- <TAbort- <MAbort- >SERR- <PERR- INTx-
	Interrupt: pin A routed to IRQ 11
	Region 0: Memory at fc000000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=16M]

	Expansion ROM at fd000000 [disabled] [size=128K]
	Capabilities: <access denied>
	Kernel modules: nouveau, nvidiafb

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?

This should be fixed with latest git, please reopen if it's not.
