I have a Thinkpad T500 which has an NVidia card NVS 4200M
. I was using Fedora 16 till saturday and had nouveau installed on it. No issues.
I moved to F17 and still have nouveau as the driver to hadle the NVidia card. It looks like my laptop is not using the Nvidia card at all. I have attempted to use the nvidia driver without much success. All the more, I would prefer to use the nouveau driver anyway instead of Nvidia driver. (I do not play any games anyway ...).

Any help in getting nouveau and my nvidia card to work would be appreciated.
