Description joshua 2013-07-30 22:42:43 UTC
Description of problem:

Both the nouveau and proprietary NVIDIA drivers don't work with an NVIDIA based card in a system with and AMD A6-3500 APU.  

Rebuilding the initramfs file without the radeon drm driver doesn't seem to work.

Is there any magic I can offer the kernel at say the kernel command line that will tell it to ignore the build-in Radeon GPU?  

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Fedora 19 x86_64

*********** MASS BUG UPDATE **************

We apologize for the inconvenience.  There is a large number of bugs to go through and several of them have gone stale.  Due to this, we are doing a mass bug update across all of the Fedora 19 kernel bugs.

Fedora 19 has now been rebased to 3.11.1-200.fc19.  Please test this kernel update and let us know if you issue has been resolved or if it is still present with the newer kernel.

If you experience different issues, please open a new bug report for those.
