Default F12 + Kernel 2.6.32RC6 + nv - not a good plan...

Perhaps jumping the gun abit... loaded up F12 & upgraded to 2.6.32 (from Rawhide).

For those who might try... 190.42 does not work. Hangs on:

NVIDIA(0): WAIT: (E, 0, 0x507d, 0)

strace shows Xorg hanging on an ioctl:

... lots of this ioctl... then hangs
ioctl(11, 0xc020462a, 0x7fff6fcc5720) = 0
ioctl(11, 0xc020462a, 0x7fff6fcc5720) = 0
ioctl(11, 0xc020462a, 0x7fff6fcc5720) = 0
ioctl(11, 0xc020462a, 0x7fff6fcc5720) = 0
ioctl(11, 0xc020462a, 0x7fff6fcc5720) = 0
ioctl(11, 0xc020462a, 0x7fff6fcc5720) = 0
ioctl(11, 0xc020462a, 0x7fff6fcc5720) = 0
stat("/etc/localtime", {st_mode=S_IFREG|0644, st_size=3519, ...}) = 0
write(2, "(EE) Nov 16 11:06:49 NVIDIA(0): "..., 56(EE) Nov 16 11:06:49 NVIDIA(0): WAIT: (E, 0, 0x507d, 0)
) = 56
write(0, "(EE) Nov 16 11:06:49 NVIDIA(0): "..., 56) = 56
ioctl(11, 0xc020462a, 0x7fff6fcc57b0) = 0
*** Hangs here ***

Also of note to anyone trying this out - the Xorg rpm package is build with a bad modules path - you have to specify the correct modulepath either on the command line or in xorg.conf (reported in bugzilla).

Also note: the native nvidia drivers don't work particularly well in 2.6.32 either.

In 2.6.31.5-127 (shipping with F12)...

Both native and proprietary drivers function... but the proprietary driver seems to cause spurious crashes that *seem* to be related to the screensaver kicking in. As the system freezes (until the watchdog timer reboots) I haven't been able to get much info (hence the upgrade to 2.6.32 to see if that improved things... not hanging the entire system is better, I suppose).
