This bug report is made for tracking what the tasks that can be done by new comers.
It will allow several new comers to collaborate and should hopefully be more up to date than using Pathscale's wiki (https://github.com/pathscale/pscnv/wiki/TODO-for-newcomers).
Please assign yourself to a task when you start working on it and please also join us on IRC: freenode #nouveau.
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.
The Nouveau Team
