01:33klysm: is the current nouveau kernel module code in the torvalds branch? why does nouveau.ko currently compile for all listed cards?
01:33klysm: is the following table correct for nv110 "maxwell" cards? https://nouveau.freedesktop.org/PowerManagement.html
01:33imirkin: klysm: yes, nouveau has been in the mainline kernel tree for some years now
01:33imirkin: (merged in 2.6.35 iirc?)
01:34klysm: imirkin, are you a developer?
01:34imirkin: define 'developer'
01:34klysm: someone who has coded c for nouveau.ko
01:34imirkin: git log should answer that question
01:35imirkin: but yes, there are a number of commits under my name
01:35klysm: my most recent nvidia board is the msi geforce gtx 960.
01:36klysm: I am not using nouveau with it
01:36imirkin: yeah, those all use signed firmware
01:36imirkin: so no powermanagement
01:36imirkin: except in laptops, where we can turn them on/off as they're used
01:36klysm: however, http://www.overclock.net/t/1521334/official-nvflash-with-certificate-checks-bypassed-for-gtx-950-960-970-980-980ti-titan-x
01:36imirkin: (whoa ... 125 nouveau kernel patches from me. more than i expected.)
01:37imirkin: ok. not sure how that would help.
01:38imirkin: vbios has a fixed init sequence
01:38imirkin: which does what it does
01:39klysm: this was released sep 2014
01:39imirkin: 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
01:40klysm: the overclockers released patched firmware above in oct 2014 and the latest release on that page is dated 02jun2016
01:40imirkin: yes, but this all relies on a driver which supports reclocking in the first place
01:41klysm: I'm actually using w7pro64 via kvm, and have not applied their patches (yet.)
01:43klysm: recent updates to xen have me thinking of moving my vm setup kvm -> xen
01:52klysm: > "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."
01:56imirkin: unfortunately we can't control the fan on GM200+
01:56imirkin: so your gpu will overheat if we start reclocking
01:56imirkin: kinda sad
01:57imirkin: there's a fanless option somewhere in there
01:57imirkin: perhaps in a patch
01:57imirkin: which allows you to flip that functionality on
16:14mynacol: Hi, can IRC see me?
16:15mynacol: karolherbst: If you want to chat about MR 10752 on GT 730, you can contact me here as well
