Description Matthias Grimrath 2010-02-06 01:39:52 UTC
Using a recent nouveau driver locks up my computer. It even won't recover if I press the reset button; the video BIOS seems to fail to initialize the video card.

Let me know if you need bios dumps / mmio traces / whatever

It appears that this bug report has laid dormant for quite a while. Sorry we haven't gotten to it. Since we fix bugs all the time, chances are pretty good that your issue has been fixed with the latest software. Please give it a shot. (Linux kernel 3.10.7, xf86-video-nouveau 1.0.9, mesa 9.1.6, or their git versions.) If upgrading to the latest isn't an option for you, your distro's bugzilla is probably the right destination for your bug report.

In an effort to clean up our bug list, we're pre-emptively closing all bugs that haven't seen updates since 2011. If the original issue remains, please make sure to provide fresh info, see http://nouveau.freedesktop.org/wiki/Bugs/ for what we need to see, and re-open this one.

Indeed, a more recent version works. Tested with xserver-xorg-video-nouveau 1.0.1 and Linux 3.2.46
