F25: X does not start after update (nouveou)

Hi!
I just installed the latest updates (something with libXnouveou) and now X does not start anymore. I get the message:
nouveau 0000:01:00.0: disp: 0x69e6[0]: INIT_GENERIC_CONDITION: unknown 0x07

Btw: the restart was triggered by a system freeze before (but that is quite "usual" since the update to the 4.10 kernel).
Btw2: this is for sure the last report I will write to this forum. I am so mightly pissed off fedora. This is by far the worst version of a linux distri I ever had (in terms of stability). It reminds me of the times, when I worked with suse 5!
I am sorry, but I had to say that.

Cheers

Downgraded xorg-x11-drv-nouveau again to version 1.0.13 again. X works now.

Yup.

I had serious problems as well after a quite normal update. Did the same by downgrading nouveau. I'm using KDE and there were a whole lot of KDE updates which might not have helped. X now working for me again which seems to be the workaround.

Re: F25: X does not start after update (nouveou)

I registered today just to thank you for posting this. I was at my wits end since this update came through yesterday and broke xorg, and I had no idea what to do to fix it. I couldn't get to my login screen so I ended up doing a fresh install of Fedora 25 and after updating I could only login to wayland, so I was just about to give up and install Ubuntu Mate when I found your post.
Downgrading the driver did the trick so thanks again. I really do love this distro and wanted to keep it, so thanks again for this post, very helpful. I'm using Gnome 3 btw.


Mike

FC25 686 Nvidia nouveu kde dead after update

As above, running fc25 686 with GTX750 under nouveau. Following recent update, KDE seems to crash at login screen. No mouse cursor and keyboard does not appear to be working. I can still boot with a 4.5..5 kernel (fc24) but would need to resolve this. In cases like this I'd like to be able to undo/rollback but the packages are now gone from the repo and would take ages to install >100 of them by hand.

Any hints?

Re: FC25 686 Nvidia nouveu kde dead after update

OK I can log on by disabling sddm and using kdm instead.

I tried downgrading sddm but no change. I am also getting an error at boot with nouveau now, possibly related to nvidia.

The problem seems to be nouveau. I would suggest downgrading it. That worked for me.

Re: F25: X does not start after update (nouveou)

I had everything working yesterday by downgrading the nouveou driver but a major upgrade notice came through this morning, and as usual I clicked on it to reboot and install, but it looks like it removed nouveou all together, and they are no longer in the repos, so guess they are working on it.

Edit: that didn't take long, I just did a dnf upgrade and the latest nouveou driver was installed and working. That was fast, good job....

Well, as you would probably guess, I did do that, and not only in this forum but nothing came up. I think we need a way of sticking current issues with the latest updates until they are resolved. I think that newly released buggy drivers, something that happens way too often, are good candidates for stickies.

Thanks for merging the threads. But I thought that the issue sit more appropriately under "installation and updates" (where I posted) rather than under "using fedora" where it's now been moved to.

Re: F25: X does not start after update (nouveou)

Hi

The problem about nouveau driver was solved.

1. Updated Fedora 25

dnf update

Dont reboot your system.

2. Downgraded nouveau driver (xorg-x11-drv-nouveau-1:1.0.13-1.fc25.x86_64)

dnf downgrade xorg-x11-drv-nouveau


Then reboot your system.

The bug is fixed with xorg-x11-drv-nouveau-1.0.14-2.
No need to downgrade anymore.
