The Nouveau changes in 3.19 fixed one problem I was having (that I didn't
have when I tested the nVidia driver for comparison), but it doesn't fix
some resolution limitations I have.
When playing GOG's homm3 via wine I need to use 800x600 to use the full
screen. When I boot using nouveau the display is 1680x1050 in the desktop.
(When I booted with the nVidia driver the display used a different
resolution.) When I go to the display settings most of the common 4:3
resolutions are supposed to be available, but when I try them the screen
ends scrambled. This makes 800x600 unusable. As a work around I used
scaling via xrandr to make make the screen work as 800x600. When combined
with screen emulation in wine, this almost worked. I had a problem with
a hang in multiplayer hotseat when using nouveau, but not nVidia. However
this last problem is now fixed in 3.19.
For the resolution issue should I be filing bugs for Fedora against
xorg-x11-drv-nouveau or would I be better off going upstream?
Either works but upstream is usually better in most cases. Particularly
right now since you're testing something that isn't available in Fedora
yet. Thanks for testing.
