This does not happen 100% of the time.
Sometimes, I am left with a black screen and no output and about 10% of the time, the kernel actually boots but fails to launch X (bug 35344)
Image of dmesg output is attached.
Very odd. I noticed that my kernel was compiled without debugging, so I decided to recompile with debugging enabled to get useful output for you guys. The strange thing is that with debugging enabled, my kernel can now boot properly
Quite possible it is a duplicate of bug 35344. Please retest on newer kernel.
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.
