F11 Beta KDE Live and nouveau



Hi,

I have just tested F11 Beta KDE Live CD.

Good news: for the first time I had X start without any proprietary drivers on my NVidia GeFore 6600! Thanks to everybody who made this possible.

I run test cases as described for Nouveau Test Day:

BASIC: PASS
VIDEO: PASS (used KDE Dragon player)
RESTART X: PASS
RENDERCHECK: PASS (I will send result to Adam Williamson)
MULTIHEAD: MIXED RESULT (*)

(*) Clone works fine, I was even able to set 1600x1200 on 1st monitor (DELL P1110) and 1920x1200 on the 2nd (NEC LCD2690WUXi) "independently" for each display. I didn't find a way to try Xinerama/TwinView using standard KDE config tool.

Unfortunately since I need TwinView, I will most likely still need proprietary driver :( I'm tracking https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=487356 so hopefully when it's fixed I'll be able to switch to nouveau.

Bad news:

1. Selecting "rotate screen" in KDE display properties kills X immediately. Anybody else seeing this on nouveau? 2. I had X hang up on me once with two (out of three) blinking diodes on the keyboard. The only way out was reboot :(
