01:06orbea: that was AndrewR's issue ^
14:32h31: Hello. I have a GeForce 7900 GS (NV49), and it has a substantially higher standby temperature than the proprietary driver.
14:33gnarface: might be a known bug
14:33h31: 60-70° on nouveau vs 53° on proprietary
14:33gnarface: go the latest version?
14:33h31: Tried on xubuntu 18.04.2 (kernel 4.18)
14:34h31: gnarface: Any chances than newer driver has fixes for such an old gpu?
14:35h31: Maybe there's any kind of settings?
14:35gnarface: theoretically possible
14:35gnarface: there is a grid...
14:35gnarface: on the nouveau website
14:35gnarface: check for reclocking
14:36gnarface: manual reclocking is possible on some gpus i just don't know off hand which ones
14:36gnarface: in some cases it is possible even if auto reclocking doesn't work
14:36gnarface: however in some of those cases, the fan control also does not work, leading to a bad heating situation
14:36gnarface: and very possibly hardware damage
14:36gnarface: luckily, MOST cards default to the lowest clock speed
14:37h31: gnarface: Mostly it says https://nouveau.freedesktop.org/wiki/PowerManagement/
14:38h31: I've tried to cat the pstate from /proc but haven't understood it's output
14:38h31: There are three states (20, 21 and AC), all of the are nearly identical
14:39gnarface: are you running a compositor?
14:39gnarface: also, i think AC is supposed to be the audio
14:39gnarface: not sure about that
14:40h31: gnarface: Yes, xfwm4
14:41h31: I've installed Compton later but haven't tested it with nouveau. Oh, and openbox works the same. Might a little less temperature, but not too much
14:42gnarface: i wonder if lack of hardware acceleration is causing it to work too hard, but the powermanagement is working right
14:42gnarface: what about fan speeds? is the fan working harder too?
14:45h31: gnarface: The fan has the same speed
14:45gnarface: that's probably a problem
14:45gnarface: do you have mesa installed too?
14:45h31: Yes, of course
14:45gnarface: just making sure so i understand the install
14:46h31: Currently I don't have nouveau installed. What's the easiest way to try the lastest version of the driver?
14:47gnarface: oh, really?
14:48gnarface: wait, what driver are you using then, some framebuffer driver?
14:49h31: gnarface: Proprietary
14:50h31: It works OK, the reason I want to set up nouveau is because proprietary driver isn't supported anymore
14:51h31: Max kernel version is 4.15
15:46gnarface: h31: i think in most distros, the proprietary driver would blacklist the nouveau kernel module. are you sure that was undone before you tested nouveau?
15:49gnarface: i'm wondering if it's falling back on some framebuffer driver instead. what does the Xorg.log say about it?
