Dear Francisco,
              Here is an update to to my efforts.
I tried to a git bisect on the nouveau kernel modules,but I seemed to messed up
my Fedora installation,so I did a fresh install of a nightly build of Fedora
14,and did a yum upgrade to Fedora 15.

I tried to install the kernel-modules with the latest Fedora 14 kernel at the
time,(kernel.i686 0:,but the build kept running into an error
when trying to build with it.

So when I used the latest Fedora 15 kernel(2.6.36-0.28.rc6.git0.fc15.i686),I
found I couldn't even boot with that kernel.So I used the parameters:
enforcing=0 nouveau.noaccel=1 and I could boot into the desktop.

So what I'm trying to say is I'm not so sure now if the kernel-module code is
at fault,as I haven't built the latest kernel-module code with the latest
kernel for Fedora 15 yet.
