As a note, a test kernel-3.7.10 was posted to the
on openSUSE-12.3, which I tried out on my PC with the FX5200 graphic
card. The test kernel works with the nouveau driver on openSUSE-12.3 GM
version with the nouveau driver. I'm hopeful that this patch will make
it into future openSUSE releases, and possibly into an official
openSUSE-12.3 kernel update ?? (I'm waiting to see the kernel poster's
I can't tell the source of the patch (local or upstream) as doing a "
rpm -qp kernel-desktop-3.7.10-0.i686.rpm --changehistory " shows various
updates but does not make clear to me (with my limited knowledge) as to
which patch addressed the nouveau driver problem.
But I am very happy to see / test the test kernel (which works !! ) . :)

Booting the machine with the previous 3.4.6 kernel (yes it's been
while before I updated again) resolves the problem.
In addition to https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=800686
raised on openSUSE-12.3 beta1 (problem also is present on 12.3 RC1) ,
I raised an upstream bug report
on the nouveau
driver with the 3.7 kernel. This is my 1st upstream bug report (that
I can recall) so hopefully I managed submitting it correctly.
I also note two other GNU/Linux distributions with the 3.7 kernel (one
slackware based and one Ubuntu based) have the identical symptoms with
the nouveau driver and the 3.7.x kernel when using the nvidia FX5200
graphic hardware (on the identical PC).
