I just built myself a new computer (contractor fried old motherboard by
plugging power tools into UPS, so it was time to upgrade!), so now I'm
working with the nouveau driver rather than unichrome.
I'm sticking with F12 rather than rawhide for a little while so that the
new hardware has time to settle down before I start messing with
I've noticed a couple of intermittent display issues, and I'd appreciate
any feedback... are these known issues? should I report them? are
First of all, occasionally when I log out and the X server tries to
restart, it fails to restart and all I get is a blank screen. When this
happens chvt doesn't work either. Xorg is running but apparently having
trouble completely initializing, presumably because something was left
behind when the previous X server shut down. Killing the X server
doesn't help -- it just restarts and gets into the same state.
Once recently I encountered an issue where my mouse cursor disappeared.
When I moved my mouse around, different windows got focus (I have focus
follows mouse enabled), but I couldn't actually see the mouse cursor. I
seem to recall that I had to reboot to fix this -- restarting X didn't
do the trick.
