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