07:04 gnurou: tagr_: btw, can I have your thoughts on https://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/9194639/ ? Be careful that it needs to be merged *after* patch 1/2 in the same series, which Mark Brown already merged in his tree
07:04 gnurou: tagr_: I'd love to see this patch merged in 4.8 since it is the last missing piece for TX1 GPU
07:05 gnurou: oops last 2 messages should have gone into #tegra
07:53 Arthur_D2: hi, I have a laptop where I can't get any signal over HDMI. The screen is recognized and "in use" but I only get "No signal" on the TV
14:34 unraised: I'm wondering if there is an easy way to tell if the nvidia firmware blob was loaded for videa acceleration according to https://nouveau.freedesktop.org/wiki/VideoAcceleration/? I've performed the extraction and rebuilt the initramfs and rebooted, but how can I tell it worked?
15:37 unraised: Hi, my connection dropped earlier. Sorry if someone already answered: Is there a way to verify video acceleration is enabled (that the nv firmware was loaded by nouveau driver at boot)?
15:51 orbea: unraised: you could try watching a video with hwdec in mplayer....
16:28 imirkin_: unraised: run vdpauinfo, should tell you if hw decoding formats are supported or not
16:28 imirkin_: unraised: fwiw that firmware isn't loaded at boot, but rather on demand
16:28 imirkin_: also note that video is in relation to videos, i.e. movies. not GL.
17:05 unraised: imirkin_: thanks for the insight and clarification. Looks like I did everything but install mesa-vdpau-drivers. Now I see supported formats with vdpauinfo.
17:05 imirkin_: cool
17:05 imirkin_: note that h264 will have issues with some videos
17:07 imirkin_: and also you can't use a player that uses GL for presentation and threads the vdpau decode in one thread and GL calls in another
17:07 unraised: Ok. Regarding demand loading of nvidia firmware, is "nouveau.config=NvGrUseFW=1" obsolete then/
17:07 imirkin_: mplayer works reliably though
17:08 imirkin_: that's for totally unrelated firmware
17:08 imirkin_: that's for graph firmware
17:08 imirkin_: which is used for context switching
17:08 imirkin_: some people have trouble with the nouveau fw and have to use blob-provided fw, which appears to work better for them
17:08 imirkin_: NvGrUseFW loads it in that case
17:10 unraised: Ah, ok, that makes sense. Thanks!
19:44 Yoshimo: Direct firmware load for nvidia/gm204/fecs_inst.bin failed with error -2 , what does error -2 mean in this case?
19:44 Yoshimo: the file seems to exist, is it broken?
