02:00 imirkin: karol - when you get a chance, see if Heaven just got faster. brian checked something in that will allegedly reduce sampler view creation
11:51 peter_zl: hello all
11:51 peter_zl: I installed debian stretch in my laptop that has an nvidia card gtx970m
11:51 peter_zl: but the nouveau driver does not load correctly
11:51 peter_zl: this is the error : nouveau 0000:01:00.0: firmware: failed to load nvidia/gm204/gr/sw_nonctx.bin (-2)
11:51 peter_zl: nouveau 0000:01:00.0: gr ctor failed, -2
11:52 peter_zl: any idea guys to solve this problem ?
11:52 towo`: install firmware-misc-nonfree
11:53 peter_zl: it's already installed
11:53 peter_zl: but it does not solve the problem
11:54 peter_zl: this is the kernel version: 4.6.0-1
11:58 peter_zl: any help please guys
12:01 vedranm: peter_zl: too old firmware package?
12:01 vedranm: perhaps debian does not package the relevant files
12:02 peter_zl: I installed the testing distribution to have the recent packages
12:02 peter_zl: btw the version of xserver-xorg-video-nouveau is 1:1.0.12-2
12:03 vedranm: peter_zl: could be that even testing is not new enough
12:03 vedranm: or even unstable
12:03 vedranm: or even experimental
12:03 vedranm: in case files are not yet packaged
12:05 peter_zl: what's the solution then ?
12:09 vedranm: peter_zl: download the files and put them in place manually
12:26 jrayhawk: peter_zl: After fixing firmware, you may also be bitten by the gm204 4GiB problem: https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=94990
13:28 pq: RSpliet, well after your presentation I realized that every desktop has at least one realtime GPU process: the compositor / gfx server - both on Wayland and X11.
13:29 pq: RSpliet, the compositor wants to composite as late as possible, and it has a hard deadline: make it for the next vblank.
17:57 MarkedOne: Hello, how can I get rid of nvidia driver and get nouveau back working?
17:57 MarkedOne: I am on debian jessie.
18:04 LuMint: Purge nvidia, unblacklist nouveau in modprobe.d
18:04 imirkin: MarkedOne: you may be asking in the wrong channel... perhaps ask in a debian user-support channel?
18:07 MarkedOne: imirkin: That is the option too. I thought someone of you know how to get rid of that bullshit.
18:08 imirkin: maybe. i don't know if anyone here uses debian.
18:14 ZeekHuge: MarkedOne: sudo apt-get purge nvidia*
18:14 ZeekHuge: and then
18:14 ZeekHuge: sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-video-nouveau
18:16 MarkedOne: LuMint: THank you
18:16 MarkedOne: ZeekHuge: Thank you I will try it. :)
