Dual display and testing nouveau. Initial problem is server killed when exiting
ppracer. Log and xorg.conf  attachments included. next.

X -configure generated xorg.conf

Nouveau secondary display. Edited LeftOf and driver from "nv" to "nouveau"

Performance of the driver is similar to tests on FC6 with upstream compiled git

This is the log from the crash.

Bug report started after the server raspawned in runlevel 5. Old was included
instead of current session log.

VT crash from test after initial ppracer error.

I confirm the error when switching to VT.

Comment 7 William Lovaton 2007-03-05 04:28:28 UTC
Bill, do you get a usable desktop?

My problems are very similar to this bug report:

I can't see the fonts in the login and password textbox in GDM and then it
crashes after login.  I can see the gnome panel, the background and the icons
but there is no text.  And after a few seconds it crashes out back to GDM.

Comment 8 Bill Nottingham 2007-03-07 20:45:14 UTC
Yes, the X display is fine as long as I don't VT switch.

Comment 9 William Lovaton 2007-03-08 00:22:37 UTC
I'm glad your hardware is working fine most of the time, this is really encouraging.

Any idea about the progress of this and the readiness for Fedora 7? is there
some place I can look to follow the progress and offer my help wherever I am
able to do it?

Comment 10 Bug Zapper 2008-04-03 19:10:21 UTC
