Hi All,

I am trying to get nouveau working on MacBookPro 4,1. I am using
kernel from nouveau/linux-2.6 repository, XOrg 1.9, libdrm and
xf86-video-nouveau from git repositories.
When drm module is loaded with debug=1 it gives a number of "[drm:
drm_stub_open]," lines in logs. It looks like idr_find(...) function
returns 0. /dev/dri/card0 doesn't exist.

What I am doing wrong?
