I am working on my newly installed wine. when i tried to run a game , called "road rash" through wine, my screen resolution got change and after few seconds game stop working. Then my most of image files including desktop icons and background disappeared. when i try to view any image through "image viewer", it shows "Could not load image" error. Though i have removed "wine" and restarted system, but same thing is happening. following is my system configuration:

OS:Fedora 15 (gnome 3.0.1) OS-type : 64 bit Memory : 3.8 GB Processor: AMD Athlon(tm) X2 240 Processor × 2 Graphics : Gallium 0.4 on NV4C

for your reference I have executed "dmesg" command and errors are pasted in following link: http://pastebin.com/raNYtK3x

Weird that it's persistent over reboots. You could try using the (proprietary, unsupported-by-Fedora) NVidia driver instead of Nouveau, at least as a workaround – sr_ Apr 11 '12 at 8:46
do you really think this will be going to help? because i don't want to format my drive. – White Dwarf Apr 11 '12 at 10:20
Slowly, slowly; changing a graphics device driver does not at all mean you've got to format your drive or start over. Have a look at "How to debug Xorg problems", too. (You could also try choosing the GNOME fallback (or "classic mode") on login to at least gain a usable system.) – sr_ Apr 11 '12 at 10:32
all the above stuff happened in fallback mode only. – White Dwarf Apr 12 '12 at 4:59
What happens when you disable SELINUX? – Andrew Nov 1 '13 at 19:07
