Not as of the 2.6.34 kernel - my 8500GT card works fine under that
kernel. It may be a factor that I have support built-in rather than as a
module - certainly, I've not seen the problems Alex reports.
FYI, I've been trying out the full Nouveau 3D (Gallium) driver lately -
it's easy enough to do, if you're happy to build libdrm and Mesa from
git. It works basically, enough to run some OpenGL games, though clearly
has some missing functionality - e.g the Spring RTS engine is playable,
but with some terrain textures not rendering...
