07:05 Arbition: So I came in a couple of days ago with what I thought was a power management bug
07:05 Arbition: now that I've reinstalled OS (and moved from rawhide to a release version) that bug doesn't turn up, or is not so simply triggered
07:06 Arbition: I'm sorry for the hassle I caused
07:07 Arbition: I may try rawhide again at some point, to see if it was my configuration as dragged forward, or possibly due to debug symbols getting in the way in the rawhide kernel
10:25 svRichard: Hey guys, I've looked on the nouveau wiki and haven't seen an answer to this question and would appreciate if anyone could answer.
10:26 mupuf: svRichard: general rule on IRC, just ask your question and wait for the answer ;)
10:26 svRichard: Do you know if nouveau supports headless units? For instance the nvidia proprietary support '"UseDisplayDevice" "none"'.
10:26 mupuf: be as asynchronous as possible
10:27 karolherbst: svRichard: in theory yes, I think modeset=2 does this?
10:27 mupuf: what's the purpose of this?
10:29 karolherbst: svRichard: but in general you don'T have to do anything
10:29 svRichard: Hoping to make use of 3D hardware accleration on a headless server and may need to use nouveau over nvidia, due to incompatibilities with TigerVNC.
10:29 karolherbst: svRichard: ohh right, no okay, yes, that works
10:29 karolherbst: svRichard: you need vgl though
10:30 svRichard: Yeah, I was expecting to use vglrun
10:30 karolherbst: svRichard: I have a setup at home where I setup vnc + vgl to render remotely
10:30 karolherbst: but you don't have to set anything in X for this, you just need to setup vgl the right way
10:31 svRichard: karolherbst: Unfortunately when specifying nothing I get "no screens found"
10:31 karolherbst: and X stops?
10:31 svRichard: My issue is I'm unable to start X
10:31 karolherbst: uhh I see
10:31 karolherbst: there is a flag for X
10:32 karolherbst: svRichard: I think a xorg config file with just the nouveau device will be enough
10:32 karolherbst: device with identifier and driver
10:33 karolherbst: this should do
10:34 svRichard: I'll give that ago, if it works you'll be my savior
10:37 svRichard: No luck, still getting "no screens found" when only specifying the device in the xorg.conf
10:39 karolherbst: uhh odd
10:39 karolherbst: maybe add a monitor as well and a dummy screen
10:40 karolherbst: something like this: https://gist.github.com/karolherbst/d14c002a44a3afa690c06614c382fab5
10:40 svRichard: @karolherbst: You mentioned an X flag, do you know which one? I didn't see anything in the manual I thought would help
10:45 svRichard: No luck, https://gist.github.com/richlanc/48f7fa8887157947445428c67777d66c
10:47 karolherbst: uhh I wrote nouveau wrong
10:47 karolherbst: no, you did :p
10:49 svRichard: I did indeed!
10:49 svRichard: It was a test, you passed
10:52 svRichard: Looks like I experiencing https://nouveau.freedesktop.org/wiki/TroubleShooting/#index1h3 . Thanks for trying to help
10:56 karolherbst: svRichard: do you start X as root?
10:59 svRichard: karolherbst: I do. But I think the issue will turn out to be "nouveau ![ DEVICE][0000:01:00.0] unknown Kepler chipset". I'm assuming the version of nouveau in Centos6 doesn't support the GTX 710
11:01 karolherbst: uhhhhh
11:01 karolherbst: what do you plan to do? :D
11:01 karolherbst: if you want reasonable performance as well, you will need a 4.10 kernel
11:02 karolherbst: does centos still has a 2.6.32 kernel?
11:02 svRichard: Continue bitching about CentOS :). "2.6.32 kernel" < yeah
11:03 karolherbst: uhhhhhh
11:03 karolherbst: well, we won't support that in any way
11:04 svRichard: Thanks any way karolherbst. You've been helpful :)
11:04 karolherbst: gk208 is yours
11:04 karolherbst: mhh
11:04 karolherbst: you want something really new then :p
12:39 pmoreau: Ouch… 2.6.32…
18:51 NanoSector: hmm Zen is going to be announced at the 13th of December
18:52 mupuf: Zen?
18:52 NanoSector: AMD Zen, sorry
18:52 mupuf: ok
18:52 mupuf: don't care then ;)
18:52 NanoSector: the live stream announcement mail talks about gaming and VR so I think it's an APU and there's a lot of focus on the GPU part
19:05 jvesely: Zen is no an APU, it's an x86 CPU pipeline design, it will be included APU designs though
20:05 jelly: hi. Every now and then chromium and/or google chrome do something which results in a black screen on my debian testing system running xorg and nouveau on a GT720. Sometimes it's possible to restart X, like this time: http://paste.debian.net/899704/
20:05 jelly: how do I begin to debug this?
20:05 imirkin_: what kernel is this?
20:07 imirkin_: either way, i'd recommend trying to apply https://github.com/skeggsb/nouveau/commit/f2a5685ed0dba31e25a9f9783440f7fafb0d49ef and see if that helps
20:07 jelly: Linux kanta 4.8.0-1-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 4.8.5-1 (2016-10-28) x86_64 GNU/Linux
