Default Bug#580894: linux-image-2.6.32-5-amd64 crashes at boot (due to nouveau)

Yeah! Found out, why this kernel version crashes. The reason is the new video
driver "nouveau", which is interfering with some nvidia-garphic-cards.

Workaround: If you are using the binary and accelerated driver "nvidia-glx",
then you will not need the nouveau driver from the kernel. Either delete it ,
or , just blacklist it. (Enter the driver in /etc/modules/blacklist.conf).

This is working for me.

Cheers

Hans

Nitpick: it interferes with the proprietary driver, not with the card.

It would probably make sense if the nvidia-glx package shipped a file
blacklisting nouveau.

The interesting question is why nvidia.ko does even get loaded (that the
screen goes blank then does not really surprise me). On my system, it
refuses to load when nouveau is in charge of the card.

In my case, I don't have the proprietary driver installed on my
machine affected by the problem. So, there is at least a bug that
is *not* due to the proprietary driver.

You have already been told to file your own bugs for your own issues and
you have not sent anything meaningful (i.e. logs) so far.

OK, http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=581830

I did send kernel logs here:

http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=580894#22

(also in my new bug report).
