RIVA TNT2 64 on F12 crashes nouveau driver

I just installed F12 over a former F9 system. I have a a nvidia TNT2 card. Formerly it was using the nv driver, which I understand has been replaced by the nouveau driver. Specifically this is what is reported in Xorg.0.log

Code:
(--) PCI:*(0:1:0:0) 10de:002d:1043:0239 nVidia Corporation NV5M64 [RIVA TNT2 Model 64/Model 64 Pro] rev 21, Mem @ 0x
f4000000/16777216, 0xf6000000/33554432, BIOS @ 0x????????/65536
The install ended up with a xorg.conf setting the driver to vesa. I presume this is because the standard install/upgrade option did not work and I had to install using the "basic video driver". Since I used this system to watch DVDs, the vesa driver does not work for me (too slow). So I tried removing the xorg.conf and followed these instructions for unsupported nvidia cards in order to try to get the nouveau driver working.

This failed. I I got was a black screen with a cursor following the mouse. Checking the Xorg.0.log I see the nouveau crash dump listed below.

I checked for fedora bugs, but I saw nothing like this one. I can't watch DVDs on this system at this point. Any ideas as to what I can try next?

Well I copied my F9 xorg.conf file, specifying the nv driver,over to my F12 instance.

I thought I'd fiddle with it a bit, but I forgot to change the "nv" to "nouveau" before I rebooted. To my great surprise it came up Checking the log file, the nv driver was being used

I thought it was deprecated?

Now I can get my 1280x1024 resolution and play DVDs, too. The F9 xorg.conf below. Am I missing out on something the noveau driver can do, like 3D acceleration?

Code:
Section "ServerLayout"
        Identifier     "single head configuration"

Re: RIVA TNT2 64 on F12 crashes nouveau driver

An update on this thread.

The 2.26.32 kernel is out and the fixed nouveau is now in the kernel. An artifact of this is an Xorg crash if you still have the nomodeset kernel setting in your boot instructions.

Re: RIVA TNT2 64 on F12 crashes nouveau driver

Way to keep on this, and thanks for keeping us updated. Does the latest 'nouveau' driver deliver 3D rendering? If so, I've got a Riva/TNT2 card that's been languishing for quite some time that I'd like to try on one of my machines (it's better than what's on there now. ).

Unfortunately the answer is No, according to the nouveau wiki.

Quote:
Any 3-D functionality that might exist is still unsupported. Do not ask for instructions to try it. But you can read GalliumHowto in case you are brave enough.
I can report that using glxgears I get 85fps on my 8 year old 1.6GHz 686 processor with TNT2. That is 2x faster than with the nv driver I was using on FC9.
