06:01 DrNefario: Hey, can someone help me generate an EDID for my monitor?
06:08 DrNefario: Actually hang on, I found the documentation for it
06:08 pabs: there is a graphical tool for that: wxEDID
06:09 DrNefario: Oh thanks, I'll look it up
06:09 pabs: https://sourceforge.net/projects/wxedid/
06:09 pabs: also its in Debian if you use that
06:14 pabs: DrNefario: why doesn't your monitor already have an EDID btw?
06:15 pabs: if it got lost somehow, you might be able to recover it from Xorg logs. and for repairing it this might work: https://wiki.debian.org/RepairEDID
06:18 DrNefario: There's a bug with nouveau that makes fetching EDID fail, I'm not sure why. Here's the issue: https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/drm/nouveau/-/issues/106
06:18 DrNefario: It works fine with the proprietary drivers installed
06:24 imirkin: DrNefario: ideally grab it from windows
06:24 imirkin: dunno if that's a thing that's easy
06:25 imirkin: (or from proprietary drivers)
06:25 DrNefario: How would I do that on Fedora?
06:25 DrNefario: I have the proprietary drivers on it right now
06:26 imirkin: xrandr --verbose
06:26 imirkin: actually that's not going to get you an easy-to-use edid file
06:26 imirkin: how about ...
06:26 imirkin: /sys/class/drm/card0-DP-1/edid
06:26 imirkin: do you have a file like that?
06:27 DrNefario: Yes, is that what I need?
06:27 imirkin: yes
06:28 DrNefario: The file is empty, apparently
06:28 imirkin: just copy it
06:28 imirkin: it's going to look 0-size in sysfs
06:28 imirkin: don't worry about that
06:29 DrNefario: I did a `cat` on it and nothing appeared
06:31 imirkin: is this with nouveau or blob?
06:31 imirkin: and is that the right output?
06:33 DrNefario: By blob you mean nvidia's driver right?
06:33 DrNefario: All of the connectors in /sys/class/drm/ say they're disabled
06:35 imirkin: yes, blob = nvidia
06:35 imirkin: anyways, i gtg
06:35 imirkin: good luck
06:36 DrNefario: Thanks
06:36 imirkin: if it's not there, grab the edid from xrandr --verbose
06:36 imirkin: and unhexlify it
06:36 imirkin: and then pass it to drm.edid_firmware
06:36 imirkin:&
06:40 DrNefario: Hang on I think I got the edid from drm/
06:40 DrNefario: It has monitor names in the binary
06:42 DrNefario: Would I have to store the EDID inside a bootable ISO to be able to use it on that ISO?
06:49 DrNefario: Oh, I can change drm.edid_firmware after boot, that's helpful
08:18 DrNefario: Any tips on loading the EDID file while booting from a live USB?
08:24 DrNefario: I've tried pretty much everything here multiple times https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Kernel_mode_setting#Forcing_modes_and_EDID
11:52 karolherbst: imirkin: mind giving me access to https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/xorg/driver/xf86-video-nouveau ? I'd like to be able to move bugs around :D
11:53 karolherbst: or close them or something :D
