What to test?

Today's instalment of Fedora Test Day will focus on the proposed new default driver for NVIDIA graphics cards, Nouveau:

If you come to this page after the test day is completed, your testing of Noveau is still valuable, and you can use the information on this page to test Nouveau with your graphics card and provide feedback.

Who's available

The following cast of characters will be available for testing, workarounds, bug fixes, and general discussion ...

What's needed to test

  • An NVIDIA graphics adapter. To confirm whether you have supporting hardware, run the following command:
    /sbin/lspci -d 10de: | grep -iq VGA && echo "Join Nouveau Fedora Test Day" || echo "No nVidia graphics hardware found." 
  • Rawhide (tips on installing Rawhide below), or the live CD available for this test day (again see below).
  • FAS Account - you can create an account in 3 minutes if you don't have one
  • Your hardware profile uploaded to Smolt according to these instructions
  • Make sure to back up your existing xorg.conf file, if you have one, so you can recover if the nouveau driver causes you trouble

How to test?

Update your machine

See the instructions on the Rawhide page on the various ways in which you can install or update to Rawhide. Or:

Live Image

Optionally, you may download a non-destructive rawhide live image for your architecture. Tips on using a live image are available at FedoraLiveCD.

Latest syslinux package?
Creating a LiveUSB of this rawhide image requires the latest version of syslinux, which is currently available in Rawhide and in the latest Windows liveusb-creator. Users of F10 and below can upgrade to the latest syslinux package using
yum --enablerepo=rawhide update syslinux
.

Test

Follow each of these test cases:

Multihead test case:

You will need two or more monitors to perform the multihead test.

Report your results

If you have problems with any of the tests, report a bug to Bugzilla. If you are unsure about exactly how to file the report, just ask on IRC and we will help you. Once you have completed the tests, add your results to the Results table below, following the example results from Adam Williamson as a template. The first column should be your name with a link to your User page in the Wiki if you have one, and the second should be a link to your Smolt hardware profile (see above for a link with instructions on submitting your hardware profile to Smolt). For each test case, if your system worked correctly, simply enter the word PASS. If you had trouble, enter the word FAIL, as a link to the bug report for the failure. If you could not perform one test (for example, you cannot perform the more advanced tests because the basic one fails, or you cannot perform the multihead test as you have only one display), enter the word N/A. In the comments column, you can enter the model name and PCI device ID (vendor ID is usually 10DE) of your card, if you know it - you can usually find this information in the output of the command lspci -nn.

Bill Nottingham N/A FAIL PASS PASS N/A N/A FAIL NV34GL [Quadro FX 500/600 PCI] [10de:032b] - DVI fails to set up correctly. VGA works, used for subsequent tests.
Walter Francis HW PASS PASS FAIL FAIL PASS N/A Quadro FX 2700M on Dell M6400. KMS: Screen res changed late in the boot and it didn't finish from there. Multihead: Clone was fine, could not make secondary extended, and could not adjust clone location.
Christof Damian HW PASS PASS PASS N/A N/A N/A GeForce 7300 LE
James Evans HW PASS PASS PASS PASS N/A N/A GeForce 9500 GT (rev a1)
Ville Skyttä HW PASS PASS PASS FAIL N/A PASS C51PV [GeForce 6150] [10de:0240] (rev a2), nouveau.modeset=1 causes hang during boot (probably expected for 6xxx series), xvideo PASS but video freezes when window is (quite rapidly) moved during playback and takes a few seconds after movement stops to start progressing again
Will May HW PASS PASS N/A N/A N/A PASS 7600GT. Hit bug 492316 (mouse disappearing near corners of screen) but it's apparently fixed already. The only other thing was that the video took a lot of processing power when the window was moved around and also playback occasionally had jagged lines in it as if it was interlaced poorly.
James Gallagher HW PASS PASS [4] FAIL PASS FAIL N/A GeForce 8600M GT [10de:0407], Video test passed well enough, but saw the minor problem noted in the bugzilla

Jason Farrell HW FAIL FAIL PASS PASS N/A N/A GeForce 8800 GT (rev a2). tested from liveusb. if not booting with KMS, my Dell 2407FPW LCD would be put to sleep at the end of the boot process. kms xvideo tests pass, although if the playback window is obscured or dragged off the edge of the screen, it shows garbage.
