I didn't say no developer had it but the ones that tested it didn't obviously didn't find any issues. Remember that driver issues tend to be very hardware specific. Your *specific* chipset (not any Nvidia one) has a issue apparently.

You assume that we didn't do any bootup testing but obviously we did and it was all done transparently as you could verify yourself by looking at Fedora test list. For your reference

It would taken about the same time to report a bug as it took to post your reply here. So, let me ask you again to report it and hope you do that, this time.


Ok, there already exists a bug with F15 where normal-graphics mode crashes on live-cd, which is the same issue with F16

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=534141
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=704998
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=708004

So, it's a nouveau driver bug in fedora 15. when an already existing bug in f15 is not fixed , how can F16 can boot properly? In f16 gnome-shell handles 3d crashes nicely, that's why it shows "Sorry there is some problem", unlike f15.

I just wonder why these unresolved bug is not mentioned in known-issues, then as "some nvidia gpus lack 3d support"?
