Nouveau Xorg driver works

July 03, 2010 — BarryK
Great, it works! I have tested on a PC with Nvidia GeForce 6600 GT card. This is with Spup and 2.6.34 kernel.

One thing, the 'fbcon' kernel module has to be loaded, otherwise there is a black screen when exit from X to the console. I have taken care of this in /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit -- thanks to jamesbond who brought this to my attention.

Sure, the Nouveau Xorg driver works. But I found that when Playdayz included it in luci-208, that the Nvidia Pet would fail even after following the instructions fully. With that driver left out, in luci-209, the Nvidia Pet installed fine. Also, with the Nouveau driver, exiting to prompt would result in very small text and window displays like xorgwizard.
