As the title says, if I boot a git kernel (Linus' tree), plymouth doesn't work, nor does X start. I have to change the graphics driver to nv in xorg.conf and restart in order to get the git kernel working with X, but then the Fedora kernels won't start X with the nv driver. Anyone else having these problems?

Yes, If you updated the new kernel-2.6.31.5-96 yesterday get rid of it and bootup
in old kernel.
I had the same problem.

Thanks, but then the first issue remains : why can't nouveau start X with vanilla kernels?

I use a nvidia 8200 card and it won't detect nouveau either.
I installed system-config-display and went into change driver , my card is detected with a Vesa driver. I selected nouveau and restarted X but it will only accept a higher resolution and would not allow me to keep my settings at 1024x768.
