Sorry for the late response!

The ugly way allowed the driver to compile and install. I did have to manually enter "nouveau" in it manually.

Well, it's not done automatically, because standard xorg.conf in FC6 does not have Section "Module" and nouveau-config-display can't handle this situation.

As a workaround you can add this into you xorg.conf:

Section "Module"
        Load  "dbe"
        Load  "extmod"
        Load  "fbdevhw"
        Load  "record"
        Load  "freetype"
        Load  "type1"
        Load  "glx"
        Load  "dri"
EndSection

Without it I don't know how to stop loading "dri" module by X server.

The server dies as depicted by this freedesk bug.

This problem is explained here → http://nouveau.freedesktop.org/wiki/InstallNouveau Right now driver has to load dri module on its own. When it will be fixed -- I don't know. Developers now have more interesting work to finish (context switching, etc.) ;-)

https://bugs.freedesktop.org/attachment.cgi?id=7470
https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=8710

I'm not sure whether it's the proper place to report bugs. nouveau developer != nv developers ;-) Did you post this links on #nouveau on irc.freenode.net?

https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=8710#c6 -- this can be caused by still not fixed drm module (card initialization part). You can only once run X server. Next run will crash your box. As a temporary solution you have to unload and load drm kernel module.

You can always subscribe to this page to be informed about updates. :)

If I can figure it out.

You have to first create account on nouveau.freedesktop.org wiki. Then you will be able to subscribe to this page (button in the right, upper corner).

Hope that helps,
