06:54 VanackSabbadium: good morning karolherbst
06:54 VanackSabbadium: unfortunately, sudo update-initramfs -u & sudo update-initramfs -c -k 5.7.5-gnu did not work
06:54 VanackSabbadium: it still doesn't recognize nvidia firmware
06:55 VanackSabbadium: i don't know... i'm about to give up, i don't really know what else i can do
07:56 VanackSabbadium: it crashed two times... i was just opening a pdf...
07:56 VanackSabbadium: :(
08:26 VanackSabbadium: karolherbst i don't know if you said something but i had to reboot 3 or 4 times so i missed it
08:46 VanackSabbadium: ok i tried everything, if you have any idea, i'm here
08:46 VanackSabbadium: thanks
14:07 RSpliet: VanackSabbadium: do you know whether nouveau on your system is a module or built-in?
14:16 karolherbst: VanackSabbadium: mhhh.. maybe something with the paths is messed up :/
14:17 VanackSabbadium: RSpliet: how do I know that?
14:17 VanackSabbadium: I'm not sure about that
14:17 RSpliet: VanackSabbadium: the easiest is to find your kernel configuration (ehh... not sure where tbh) and see whether CONFIG_NOUVEAU is set to Y or M
14:17 RSpliet: I presume the latter
14:17 VanackSabbadium: All I know is that I installed a minimal distro without X and then I downloaded X and AwesomeWM by myself
14:18 RSpliet: What may give some insight is execute "modinfo noouveau"
14:18 VanackSabbadium: karolherbst: i don't know where I should put the firmware
14:18 RSpliet: actually.... doing that may reveal the path for the firmware.
14:19 RSpliet: VanackSabbadium: it might be even more tedious. Like... if the firmware needs to be rolled into the initramfs, you may have to instruct the initramfs generation script to put it there.
14:20 RSpliet: Perhaps your distro support channel has better instructions for that tbh. I'm only familiar with Fedora (and the open-source firmware)
14:20 karolherbst: VanackSabbadium: normally in /lib/firmware/nouveau
14:20 karolherbst: I think?
14:20 karolherbst: let me see
14:21 karolherbst: yep
14:21 RSpliet: karolherbst: I think that's where V13m cluncked them down
14:34 VanackSabbadium: karolherbst: i put it there..
14:36 VanackSabbadium: I found a script to instruct the system to regenerate initramfs each reboot to pick firmware from lib/firmware/nouveau but it doesn't work anyway
14:36 VanackSabbadium: I found it somewhere on bugs.freedesktop.org
14:36 karolherbst: mhhhh
14:37 karolherbst: VanackSabbadium: what does "modinfo nouveau" print?
14:37 RSpliet: VanackSabbadium: presumably there's a trick to hoist firmware files into your initramfs that I'm unaware of. If nouveau loads before mounting your file system and the firmwares aren't present, you can be in trouble.
14:37 karolherbst: is the firmware in the list?
14:37 RSpliet: karolherbst: nouveau doesn't do deferred probing, does it?
14:37 karolherbst: ohhhh wait
14:37 VanackSabbadium: I'm at work, gotta check it
14:37 karolherbst: the extract firmware isn't in the list for me either :O
14:37 karolherbst: crap
14:38 karolherbst: VanackSabbadium: I think you need to add the files explicitly in the initramfs generator...
14:39 VanackSabbadium: I need help to do it 😅
14:40 karolherbst: yeah.. I only ever did it with dracut
14:41 karolherbst: and I assume you have something else :p
14:41 karolherbst: so I can't help you there either
14:43 VanackSabbadium: Damn.. So I'm fucked 🤣
14:48 VanackSabbadium: My only chance is that modinfo nouveau?
14:48 VanackSabbadium: Could it give me the exact path where I should put the firmware?
22:19 mmu_man: ohhhkay so still random freeze after reboots here :-(
22:20 mmu_man: every time I upgrade it's the same, random freeze and reboot for some hours until it settles
22:24 RSpliet: VanackSabbadium: your best bet is to ask the support of whatever distro you have how to add (firmware) files to your initramfs. These kind of tools and scripts frustratingly differ between distros, so asking them is more likely to yield you an answer to that question than asking us here.
