17:56 Satan: Hello! Is the graphics driver responsible for the HDMI port?
17:58 Satan: I am looking for ways of troubleshooting the fact that I don't even see a thing on dmesg when I plug an HDMI external monitor and would like to see if I'm at the right place
18:03 karolherbst: Satan: well, yeah, the nouveau driver is responsible for handling the HDMI stuff
18:03 karolherbst: but depending on your system it can have many causes
18:03 karolherbst: did you already checked the output of dmesg?
18:08 Satan: karolherbst: yes, it shows literally nothing when I connect it
18:08 karolherbst: mhhh
18:08 karolherbst: is this a laptop?
18:08 Satan: Yes
18:08 Satan: I have two graphics card
18:08 karolherbst: yeah.. I figured
18:08 Satan: Do you thing the intel driver might be responsible for the HDMI then?
18:08 karolherbst: unsure
18:09 karolherbst: mind sharing the output of "grep . /sys/class/drm/card*-*/status"?
18:09 Satan: NP, just a minute
18:10 Satan: connected
18:11 karolherbst: yeah well.. which ones are
18:11 karolherbst: should have printed a couple of lines and stuff
18:12 Satan: it's the eDP-1
18:12 karolherbst: yeah, that's your internal one
18:12 karolherbst: okay, so all HDMI ones are disconnected I guess?
18:12 Satan: So, shouldn't the card0 have something too?
18:12 Satan: karolherbst: not actually
18:12 karolherbst: depends
18:12 Satan: It's connected to my TV right now for testing
18:13 karolherbst: _normally_ card0 is the integrated one and card1+ are all the others, but sometimes the order could be screwed up
18:13 karolherbst: but some laptops have outptuts just on one GPU etc...
18:14 karolherbst: so, kind of curious about the entire output of that command
18:14 Satan: So, this is what I do have on /sys/class/drm: ard0 card0-eDP-1 renderD128 version
18:14 Satan: There might be something missing?
18:14 karolherbst: mhhh
18:14 Satan: Like a card1?
18:14 karolherbst: I would say so
18:15 karolherbst: mind uploading your entire dmesg to some pastebin site or something?
18:15 karolherbst: curious on what's going on there
18:15 karolherbst: nouveau might not be loaded at all, or something else
18:18 Satan: Ohhh gosh... Thanks you said that, sorry, I didn't check the OBVIOUS
18:18 Satan: The nouveau driver wasn't loaded at all
18:19 Satan: I don't know where my mind is these days, my brain might be having driver issues LOL
18:19 karolherbst: well... :P at least that's figured out
18:20 Satan: Thanks a lot and sorry for wasting your time
18:20 karolherbst: no worries
