Re: Failure to reach login screen - nouveau problem

Following an overnight shut down I couldn't reach the desktop manager
the following day. Running a live system I was able to extract the
following via 'dmesg'. Does anyone recognise this, or can offer a
pointer to the problem?
[ 0.705479] nouveau E[ DEVICE][0000:01:00.0] unknown chipset, 0x124020a1
[ 0.705515] nouveau E[ DRM] failed to create 0x80000080, -22
I saw something like this on Mageia in just the past few days. The DRM and
Nouveau modules were failing to load automatically during boot. I got X to
work by modprobing nouveau and/or drm.
What does 'lspci | grep VGA' show your gfxcard model is? Possibly you have a
firmware package installation failure. What happens if you login on a vtty
and do startx? /var/log/Xorg.#.log may offer other clues.
