01:33 klysm: is the current nouveau kernel module code in the torvalds branch? why does nouveau.ko currently compile for all listed cards?
01:33 klysm: is the following table correct for nv110 "maxwell" cards? https://nouveau.freedesktop.org/PowerManagement.html
01:33 imirkin: klysm: yes, nouveau has been in the mainline kernel tree for some years now
01:33 imirkin: (merged in 2.6.35 iirc?)
01:34 klysm: imirkin, are you a developer?
01:34 imirkin: define 'developer'
01:34 klysm: someone who has coded c for nouveau.ko
01:34 imirkin: git log should answer that question
01:35 imirkin: but yes, there are a number of commits under my name
01:35 klysm: my most recent nvidia board is the msi geforce gtx 960.
01:36 klysm: I am not using nouveau with it
01:36 imirkin: yeah, those all use signed firmware
01:36 imirkin: so no powermanagement
01:36 imirkin: except in laptops, where we can turn them on/off as they're used
01:36 klysm: however, http://www.overclock.net/t/1521334/official-nvflash-with-certificate-checks-bypassed-for-gtx-950-960-970-980-980ti-titan-x
01:36 imirkin: (whoa ... 125 nouveau kernel patches from me. more than i expected.)
01:37 imirkin: ok. not sure how that would help.
01:38 imirkin: vbios has a fixed init sequence
01:38 imirkin: which does what it does
01:39 klysm: https://hardware.slashdot.org/story/14/09/27/1254219/nvidia-begins-requiring-signed-gpu-firmware-images
01:39 klysm: this was released sep 2014
01:39 imirkin: klysm: i wrote this a while ago, it explains some of the issues: https://www.phoronix.com/forums/forum/linux-graphics-x-org-drivers/open-source-nvidia-linux-nouveau/998310-nouveau-persevered-in-2017-for-open-source-nvidia-but-2018-could-be-much-better?p=998427#post998427
01:40 klysm: the overclockers released patched firmware above in oct 2014 and the latest release on that page is dated 02jun2016
01:40 imirkin: yes, but this all relies on a driver which supports reclocking in the first place
01:41 klysm: I'm actually using w7pro64 via kvm, and have not applied their patches (yet.)
01:43 klysm: recent updates to xen have me thinking of moving my vm setup kvm -> xen
01:52 klysm: > "The nouveau team also has implemented a PMU which is sufficient to allow the kernel driver to perform memory reclocks on Kepler/Maxwell, as well as all the fan/therm management stuff that's needed."
01:56 imirkin: unfortunately we can't control the fan on GM200+
01:56 imirkin: so your gpu will overheat if we start reclocking
01:56 imirkin: kinda sad
01:57 imirkin: there's a fanless option somewhere in there
01:57 imirkin: perhaps in a patch
01:57 imirkin: which allows you to flip that functionality on
02:37 klysm: s/msi/evga/
16:14 mynacol: Hi, can IRC see me?
