Greetings testers,

Adam Williamson and Ben Skeggs have lined up an exciting Fedora Test Day
topic.  This Thursday, March 26 will focus on testing the new nouveau
graphics driver.  If the Intel graphics test day [1] was any indication,
this will be a busy event.  

As outlined in the NouveauAsDefault feature page [2], the nouveau driver
will be replacing the previous 'nv' driver for nVidia chipsets.  There
are several notable improvements including RANDR 1.2 support and
accelerated XRENDER support.  To determine if you have the required
hardware, run the following command:

# /sbin/lspci -d 10de: | grep -iq VGA && echo "Join Nouveau Fedora Test Day"

So come join #fedora-qa this Thursday, March 26, 2009 to share your
Nouveau graphics test results.  A Fedora live image will be available to
aid testing.  Stay tuned for more details are available at
