BUG REPORT

OS= Fedora 12 X64 using RPM fusion version of drivers, most current release (not testing)

Laptop = Asus UL50VT

Operating state: Black screen blinking cursor.

Note:
Details about the driver version etc in attached files.

Other info:
Removed the Nouveau module and installed nVidia module using Leigh's guide.

Laptop also has an Intel integrated video and a G210M
Both GPU's are detected, the pci id for the G210M as per lspci is 1:0:0 , Intel is at 0:2:0

Added BusID to xorg.config in the device section which directs it to use the G210M as required when you have more than one gpu based on what I found in the nvidia readme.

Brief summary of errors:

Xorg log shows:
Failed to initialize the NVIDIA graphics device PCI:1:0:0

Messages shows:
kernel: NVRM: Failed to copy vbios to the system memory
NVRM: rm_init_adapter(0) failed.

Tried the vmalloc in the kernel line with no change.
Also tried the custom EDID with same result.
