I like Fedora, and thus comply and test out nouveau, but at the same time am somewhat dissapointed in that I ask for help on how to compile nouveau on a kernel from kernel.org and not a Fedora kernel.  The fedora kernels have dracut and do this automagically and I try to copy the same kernel configuration to build new kernel, it builds and installs, I reboot, I log into level 3 then startx and X fails to load :(, I want to use the nouveau but they(kernel guys/nouvveau guys make it to cryptic, YES, i read the howto/wiki page, it does me no good).  So here, I have to agree with Bill, in using Fedora 10 I had no choice but use Nvidia drivers and I successfully loaded the "evil" drivers.  I am content running nouveau now with Fedora 12 but only fedora kernels, I want to compile/roll my own kernels too, but the documentation is lacking for

Until very recently Nouveau wasn't upstream, so it wasn't going to work
