00:39naptastic: Is it possible to compile Nouveau in the kernel with support for only some devices? Compiling for all supported devices adds to my kernel compile times and I'd like to reclaim some of that if possible.
00:39naptastic: (I compile custom kernels for all of my systems... my use cases are weird, and it's warranted, I promise. ;)
00:40airlied: naptastic: no
01:15Zedax: hello, do you know if the 730 is supported or known to work fine?
01:18naptastic: Zedax, is that a Kepler chip?
01:19naptastic: If so, then yes, it looks pretty good on the feature matrix: https://nouveau.freedesktop.org/wiki/FeatureMatrix/
01:19Zedax: naptastic: should be, i ask because i'm having freezes and on the website i just see the 720 as supported, but maybe technically is the same model, i don't know
01:23Zedax: the screen freezes often, usually when playing a video on a browser, but can happen jus in desktop, the image running at the time won't disapear, and the mouse can move, the system itself it is fine, if you had sound playing it keeps playing, and you can ssh and do other things just fine, it seems the card itself or X hangs somehow, but there aren't serious errors on kernel lvl nor dumps on the log, this is all i see https://bpaste.n
01:29Zedax: the "nouveau 0000:02:00.0: fifo: write fault at 0000260000 engine 00 [GR] client 0f [GPC0/PROP_0] reason 02 [PTE] on channel 2 [007fb31000 Xorg]" it what happens when it freezes
01:38naptastic: that is one hell of an error message. I wish I knew what it meant.
06:51karolherbst_work: mwk: it seems like libpcieaccess has no Mac OS X support. The fastest solution might be porting envytools over to some mac os x stuff, but porting libpcieaccess to mac os x might be worth the effort :/
12:02t-ask: HI, I want to try karolherbst_work's https://github.com/karolherbst/nouveau/tree/stable_reclocking_kepler_v5 patch, but I'm abit lost as I didn't compile a custom kernel for a while. I assume the workflow is: !. Download newest kernel 4.7rc and then somehow put the reclocking patch into it. How do I do this?
12:03t-ask: I guess, Arch's Wiki entry https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Nouveau#Installing_the_latest_development_packages if not he way to go in this case.
12:03karolherbst_work: t-ask: that branch depends on 4.6
12:04karolherbst_work: t-ask: basically you just install the kernel sources and compile inside drm
12:04karolherbst_work: and install drm/nouveau/nouveau.ko inside the right place in /lib/modules
12:04t-ask: I read this is not recommended, but if you say so
12:05karolherbst_work: yeah well, if you have any better idea
12:07karolherbst_work: you can of course find a nouveau AUR package and just point to my repository and branch and install it this way, but usually nouveau is installed via the normal kernel package
12:07karolherbst_work: in any way, I don't develop inside a kernel tree, because this is too slow to deploy and everything
12:08t-ask: no I don't:( I just remeber the times I diff patched the kernel, against new kernel patches. That was just what I expected.
12:11t-ask: Ok, I donwload the kernel source somewhere, install the this kernel, I swithc to your git tree and just compile the drm part. Thne I manually move the module into /lib/modules, right?
13:11karolherbst_work: t-ask: you don'T need to deploy your own kernel
13:11karolherbst_work: t-ask: just use the normal 4.6 kernel from your distribution
13:15t-ask: yes. I',m just trying to understand how i can automate/use it with Arch's build system. I cloned your src in ~/build/. I'm not sure how to modify the PKGBUILD https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Kernels/Arch_Build_System
13:16t-ask: It is a learning process and most likely much easier than I think :)
13:33DebianLinuxero: Any news about this : https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=95044
13:46RSpliet: DebianLinuxero: skeggsb is the (Australian) man you need to bug about that
13:50DebianLinuxero: Hello Roy. I live in Europe, so I sleep when people at Australia were asleep. I suppouse then I should email him.
13:51RSpliet: DebianLinuxero: I wish I could say the same, but since that brexit thing... anyway, yes, e-mail is the best way to raise his attention. Be aware though I'd expect him to be busy
14:16karolherbst_work: RSpliet: fun times over there I guess? :D
16:14RSpliet: karolherbst_work: the country is on fire and those responsible are all stepping up
16:15karolherbst_work: I know
16:15karolherbst_work: leave the ship before it is getting destroyed sounds like the sanest thing to do now
16:24Yoshimo: not what i consider a fine character, they got what they wanted and now they become cowards
22:44crypticGator: Hi my screen looks really bad
22:44crypticGator: I'm on Ubuntu Gnome and the resolution shows 1024X768
22:57RSpliet: crypticGator: unless you're running an upstream 4.6 kernel, you should probably direct your questions to the Ubuntu maintainers
22:59crypticGator: I'm using 4.6.3 I think
22:59crypticGator: Is that the problem?
23:01RSpliet: mind posting your dmesg on a paste website of choice?
23:01crypticGator: I'll post it on the paste website of your choice.
23:01crypticGator: dmesg with no arguments?
23:01RSpliet: yes, just plain dmesg, no grep
23:05RSpliet: "Direct firmware load for nvidia/gm206/gr/sw_nonctx.bin failed with error -2"
23:05RSpliet: line 674
23:05RSpliet: you might want to install that firmware
23:06crypticGator: I don't know what that is and how to install it
23:06crypticGator: I just fresh-installed this version of ubuntu a couple of days ago
23:06RSpliet: potentially Ubuntu has a package for those firmware files, ask the ubuntu guys to double check (or try and find it with... apt-file I think)
23:09vita_cell: guys, can I improve in some way performance of my nvidia card + nouveau?
23:10crypticGator: it says that is bundled with the binary
23:11crypticGator: Nvidia's driver binary
23:12crypticGator: So do I install it and switch to it, then switch back to nouveau
23:13RSpliet: crypticGator; no, that's not how things work
23:14RSpliet: 1) the link you mention is for video acceleration, not ctx
23:15crypticGator: I'm confused
23:15RSpliet: 2) the error message lists a path and a filename. the official driver does not drop its firmware in that file
23:16RSpliet: as I said, the ubuntu guys should be able to tell you how to get that firmware. I can't tell you what package that's in because I use Fedora rather than Ubuntu, my world is different
23:16RSpliet: but take that error message to the ubuntu support people and they should be able to direct you to the right manuals
23:18crypticGator: okay thaks
