Never tried this part.

The bug I'm assuming you're referring to is

in which you merely remove the nouveau userspace component, and in which
I can't tell if you built nouveau into the kernel or not, but I assume
you didn't based on your previous post. The X server does only try the
one driver before falling back to vesa, which is a bug in the fallback
logic I suppose. I've (blindly) fixed that for F13 now.

Thanks. Can this be put into F12 too?

However, the log in that bug only shows you using the built-in
autoconfig logic, and not an xorg.conf file. So, given you were talking
about a kernel without nouveau, I am left to assume one of:

- you didn't try writing an xorg.conf fragment
- you did, and it didn't work anyway

The latter case is entirely plausible, as nv is not the sort of driver
that gets a lot of love, but I'm not aware of any open bugs about gf9800
in particular in nv.

The latter... would modeset in grub interfere, perhaps?
