Configure Nouveau driver?

Good day all.

Running F18 updated as of today.

How do I configure the Nouveau video driver to disable anti-aliasing? It's controlling the graphics card (NVidia GeForce 5200), but I find no driver apps or controls.

Thanks.
Tom

Re: Configure Nouveau driver?

according to this,
Code:
$ rpm -ql xorg-x11-drv-nouveau
/usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/nouveau_drv.so
/usr/share/man/man4/nouveau.4.gz
the driver includes a man page, so give
Code:
man nouveau
a try and see if it includes any configuration information. i took a quick glance and didn't see any anti-aliasing options.

Re: Configure Nouveau driver?

Thanks gitman. No references to aliasing in the driver manual.

I'm getting empty gray windows for all the Java apps (Java 1.7). Applets run fine, and Java apps actually load, but all windows are just grey boxes.

One of many suggestions on the Java website is to turn off the video driver anti-aliasing. The problem must be video card related, as I have the exact same setup on another Fedora box, but with a different video card. On that machine Java apps run perfectly.
