# cd /ports/x11-drivers/xf86-drivers-nouveau/
# make install clean
# Xorg -configure
tested the screen, then ran
# cp /root/xorg.conf.net /etc/X11/xorg.conf
# sed -i "" 's|nv|nouveau|g' /etc/X11/xorg.conf
restarted machine and I have nouveau working fine.
Sometimes screen flickers, but I consider that normal behavior, given
that Fedora 14 & Fedora 15, porteus 64 bit also flicker and they have
newer xorg packages and newer nouveau drivers too and it is no loss :(
I can go back to nv, but nouveau is working fine :)
I had a problem when playing a movie with mplayer, the movie did not
fill the entire screen when I typed 'f' or used -fs options. I
corrected this by adding to
and it worked :) I was going to try and get the kernel sources to
successfully install nvidia, but why go through that hassle if it is
now working like I wanted it to work.
