11:22cosurgi: these two kms patches, "kms/gv100-:", are they about nvidia blob kms support?
11:22cosurgi: *binary propertiary blod
11:22cosurgi: *binary propertiary blob
15:49imirkin_: cosurgi: no, they are about nouveau kms support.
15:49imirkin_: kms = kernel modesetting. as opposed to, say, some core engine thing, or memory management, or whatever
15:52cosurgi: imirkin_: I suppose that I'm using kms? I enjoy the really fast VT switching between xservers.
15:52imirkin_: nouveau doesn't function without kms, so yes.
15:52imirkin_: and those X servers like to set modes too
15:53imirkin_: not to mention controlling which monitors to light up
15:53imirkin_: that's all done through kms.
15:53cosurgi: But since I have 'GeForce GTX 1060 6GB' these patches do not affect me?
15:54imirkin_: they do not. that's a gp106 or whatever
15:54cosurgi: ok :)
15:54imirkin_: gv = volta
15:54imirkin_: which is the next gen after pascal
16:19maccraft: imirkin_: do you have time now?
16:19maccraft: to get that crt to work :D
16:19imirkin_: yes and no ... no for anything requiring serious attention
16:20maccraft: how much serious?
16:20imirkin_: what was the issue? sorry, i hate the attention span of a goldfish
16:21maccraft: high resolution modes don't work on my integrated mcp78 gpu
16:21maccraft: xrandr does list these modes
16:21imirkin_: right ... the monitor just says no signal or whatever?
16:21maccraft: and i can use it on my laptop with igpu ironlake
16:21maccraft: just black screen
16:21imirkin_: and is there anything in dmesg?
16:22imirkin_: unfortunately i don't know what could be wrong
16:22imirkin_: i know not-much about modesetting, and even less about the DAC stuff.
16:22imirkin_: if you're interested, you can look for dispnv50/dacnv50.c
16:23imirkin_: which has the programming of .. the dac
16:23maccraft: i can link dmesg here, because it lists some clock things
16:24imirkin_: yeah, that's all reasoanble and expected.
16:25maccraft: i have dual gpus on my desktop
16:25maccraft: i use igpu only for it's vga output
16:27imirkin_: so ... this is where we program the dac: https://github.com/skeggsb/nouveau/blob/master/drm/nouveau/dispnv50/dac507d.c
16:28imirkin_: and here: https://github.com/skeggsb/nouveau/blob/master/drm/nouveau/dispnv50/disp.c#L373
16:28imirkin_: and here: https://github.com/skeggsb/nouveau/blob/master/drm/nouveau/nvkm/engine/disp/dacnv50.c
16:29imirkin_: lol. that's some fancy programming skeggsb:
