07:47 Newbyte: apologies if this is a common question, but would it be possible to either extract the proprietary firmware from the nonfree driver package or somehow intercept and capture it when it's being uploaded to the GPU?
13:03 karolherbst: Newbyte: it is
13:14 karolherbst: but it causes a similiar situation as with the video acceleration firmware
13:52 RSpliet: That similar situation being we can't redistribute that firmware, hence we can't provide a good user experience?
13:53 karolherbst: yep
13:53 karolherbst: everything you can't do out of the box sucks
15:12 Newbyte: even if it's something I'd have to do manually I'd be happy to do that just so I can use nouveau. has anyone done this and documented how?
15:58 karolherbst: Newbyte: the bigger issue is, that nouveau also has to make use of the firmware
