    Phoronix: Help Out The Nouveau Project This Weekend

    While the RadeonSI Gallium3D driver could use a lot of help and the R600 Gallium3D driver still has an open TODO list, if you're a NVIDIA graphics hardware owner, the reverse-engineering Nouveau project could use your help...

    Did they ask you to post this? I mean they have long had a policy of no reporting non working 3d etc... just because they get flooded with information they already know. Also they have pretty much have all the testing they could want.. its not like there are infinite combinations of video card designs...

      Ever since kernel 3.5 I can't boot with nouveau. And on 3.4 I have to use nouveau.noaccel=1 to boot so I'm stuck with a very slow gnome shell desktop experience. I'm regretting having an nvidia card in my new desktop.

        Please file a bug, if you haven't already. I had an issue a while back and then helped me sort it out, I had to do some kernel bisecting, which is less scary then it seems, especially when you can just use Ubuntu's builds to narrow it down to at least an RC.

        What card do you have, btw?

          It's a GTX 580.

          There's a bug in the Redhat bz about it https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=802026

          I'd be willing to do some more leg work to help out. I'm very familiar with git, but haven't built a kernel in a decade.
