Bug Description

This is fixed using the proprietary nvidia experimental.

Just after the installation of the Edubuntu 20120727 amd64 build, at the restart the graphic is seriously corrupted and the syslog is full of:

Jul 27 13:42:02 njin-K8NF4G-SATA2 kernel: [ 494.895093] [drm] nouveau 0000:00:05.0: PGRAPH - ERROR nsource: FORMAT_EXCEPTION nstatus: INVALID_STATE BAD_ARGUMENT PROTECTION_FAULT
Jul 27 13:42:02 njin-K8NF4G-SATA2 kernel: [ 494.895110] [drm] nouveau 0000:00:05.0: PGRAPH - ch 3 (0x000db000) subc 6 class 0x009f mthd 0x0308 data 0x00180042

This is the first time that I can observe this behavior in an installed system, before it was afflicting only the live session or ubiquity-dm.

Screenshot and syslog attached
