I am running 64 bit CentOS 6.5, and have an intermittent problem where the
desktop crashes with the following error

nouveau E[Xorg 6062]] failed to idle channel 0xccc0000

The only route I have out of it is to power down then restart. It is
intermittent, where some days it does not happen, to 2-3 times per day.
Have others had this experience and is there a solution?

Thanks in advance for any help

Best wishes
