00:00 gnurou: imirkin_: so I have to go with whatever I am told and manage my frustration
00:00 gnurou: (now I know how you guys feel)
00:03 imirkin_: fun.
09:08 Forgon: Hi. My Quadro FX 570M on a Thinkpad T61p uses the nouveau driver with an ArchLinux OS.
09:10 Forgon: Sometimes my graphic system freezes, which leads to a blurred display on the next power-on. Modprobing nouveau does no longer work then, even if I use the '-vf' switch.
09:10 Forgon: I am very confused about the whole issue. What could be the cause?
09:12 Forgon: A log is here: http://sprunge.us/fjhC
09:21 karolherbst_work: Forgon: recent kernel?
09:22 Forgon: karolherbst_work: 4.7.5.1. But I had no such issue before with the same kernel, I suspect the GPU may be faulty which is extremely common for my laptop model.
09:23 karolherbst_work: Forgon: can you open a bug on https://bugs.freedesktop.org/ against Xorg/Driver/nouveau and attach your vbios (/sys/kernel/debug/dri/0/vbios.rom)?
09:23 karolherbst_work: that "devinit: 0xded5[ ]: unknown opcode 0x0b" should be fixed in either case
09:23 Forgon: karolherbst_work: Ok, if you insist :)
09:24 Forgon: Though usually I first make sure it's not a user error in a liberal sense before I file reports.
09:24 karolherbst_work: gnurou: :/
09:25 karolherbst_work: Forgon: if there are nouveau error in dmesg, it isn't the users fault ;) except you add patches
09:27 karolherbst_work: Forgon: you should make a report about your freeze as well though
09:27 karolherbst_work: any messages about this in logs or dmesg?
09:27 Forgon: karolherbst_work: The file to attach is empty.
09:28 karolherbst_work: you have to cat it first
09:28 Forgon: karolherbst_work: I try to find them.
09:28 karolherbst_work: it's just a virtual file you can't just upload
09:29 Forgon: I have to admit being such a noob that this all this may take a while, though.
09:30 karolherbst_work: as root: cat /sys/kernel/debug/dri/0/vbios.rom > /tmp/vbios.rom
09:31 karolherbst_work: and then you can upload the /tmp/vbios.rom file
09:32 Forgon: karolherbst_work: I know so much, the trouble is finding all logs (journalctl, dmesg) that are relevant here.
09:34 karolherbst_work: mhh
09:34 karolherbst_work: Forgon: you only have to check dmesg, journalctl and /var/log/Xorg.*.log files
16:43 imirkin_: skeggsb: another user who's having issues with a GTX 660 - https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=99068 - on kernel 4.8.6. seems relatively competent based on the amount of direction i had to give him to get it working. perhaps you can work with him to figure out wtf is going on with those?
17:09 RSpliet: imirkin_: I've noticed reduced stability on Wayland with GT640
17:10 imirkin_: RSpliet: the GTX 660 thing is something that's been going on since the dawn of time
17:10 imirkin_: RSpliet: are you using any applications with "K" in their names?
17:11 RSpliet: imirkin_: yes I know, even gnurou didn't get his stable I think?
17:11 RSpliet: other than "skype", no
17:11 imirkin_: how about Q? :)
17:13 RSpliet: lots of G's
17:14 RSpliet: there's a K in GTK though
17:15 NanoSector: there's no K in Plasma
17:15 NanoSector: :P
17:15 imirkin_: there is no "i" in team, but there is a "me" :)
17:16 NanoSector: heh
22:10 bloblo: hello
22:10 bloblo: i have gtx 770, i have build linux-next
22:11 bloblo: but startx not work
22:11 bloblo: [ 15.185] (II) LoadModule: "nouveau" [ 15.185] (WW) Warning, couldn't open module nouveau [ 15.185] (II) UnloadModule: "nouveau" [ 15.185] (II) Unloading nouveau [ 15.185] (EE) Failed to load module "nouveau" (module does not exist, 0)
22:12 bloblo: the clocking core and mem with 0f work
22:13 bloblo: but i cant startx
22:15 imirkin_: bloblo: pastebin dmesg, xorg log
22:15 imirkin_: also note that something in linux-next is upsetting things, allegedly to do with idr changes
22:16 imirkin_: you may want drm-next, hopefully it doesn't have those.
22:19 bloblo_: i have saved xorg log: http://pastebin.com/3YFCMzFG
22:19 bloblo_: when i try drm-next later
22:22 bloblo_: drm-next you talkin is this : git clone -b drm-next git://people.freedesktop.org/~airlied/linux
22:22 bloblo_: ?
22:36 imirkin_: you appear to not have the nouveau ddx somehow? dunno.
