screen goes blank during boot as soon as drm (KMS) kicks in


hello everyone,
I compiled a newer stable version of the kernel (3.3.5) for my otherwise slackware64-13.37.

i basically used a slightly modified generic .config file (taken from 2.6.37.6) did "make oldconfig" (accepted all default values) and build my new kernel with that..

the GPU is an

and i'm using the nouvaeu driver.

I have paid attention to include the following
Quote:
CONFIG_FRAMEBUFFER_CONSOLE=y
CONFIG_FRAMEBUFFER_CONSOLE_DETECT_PRIMARY=y
if i boot with the nomodeset kernel option I can get a runlevel 3 login screen. but i can't startx.

also if i boot with drm.debug=1 i get the following:

seems like nouveau is broken for kernels 3.3.x

https://lkml.org/lkml/2012/4/22/1

If I got it right (the thread is pretty long), it has been fixed in 3.4-rc7.
