02:17fodasso: Hello. I'm on a RTX 2060 and am getting a lot of segfaults since updating to mesa-22.2.0. Is it a known issue?
02:17fodasso: I can only avoid segfaults if I disable the LLVM backend for Gallium, but things get quite slow.
02:17fodasso: I'm on LLVM 15, BTW
02:21karolherbst: huh... that's odd
02:22karolherbst: not sure how LLVM is relevant here, because it shouldn't get used
02:26fodasso: Well, I testes with celluloid and supertuxkart, as well as Librewolf. All of them don't segfault if I run them with GALLIUM_DRIVER="softpipe" instead of "llvmpipe".
02:27fodasso: And Librewolf launches just fine by just disabling webrender.
02:27karolherbst: why would you want to use softpipe or llvmpipe?
02:27fodasso: What are the alternatives? I'm a total noob
02:27karolherbst: normally the nouveau GL driver would be used, it's a bit odd that this doesn't seem to happen on your system
02:28karolherbst: I think llvmpipe has a few issues with llvm-15 anyway: https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/mesa/mesa/-/issues/6735
02:28karolherbst: but not sure how relevant that is to GL
02:28karolherbst: but probably the same thing
02:29fodasso: So, by using nouveau as you say there would be no Gallium being used?
02:29karolherbst: nouveau is gallium based as well
02:29karolherbst: llvmpipe and softpipe are simply software renderer, so it's all done on the CPU
02:30fodasso: I'm on Gentooo here. Could it have something to do with the USE flags?
02:30karolherbst: could be that nouveau failed to load on your system. There are a few issues around Turing GPUs, which nvidia didn't address yet, because it's most likely a bug in the firmware they ship
02:31karolherbst: fodasso: do you have VIDEO_CARDS=nouveau set?
02:31karolherbst: mhh.. mind sharing your dmesg?
02:31fodasso: Is there firmware available for Turing GPUs?
02:32karolherbst: yeah.. you don't have the firmware
02:32fodasso: I believe the Gentoo package doesn't ship the firmware for my GPU
02:32karolherbst: it should
02:32karolherbst: it's in linux-firmware
02:32karolherbst: but you might have a savedconfig thing or how it was called which only installs selected files
02:32karolherbst: you'll need the nvidia/tu106/ stuff
02:32fodasso: Oh, that's why. And I configured it to only install the firmware for my network adapter
02:32fodasso: tyvm for the info.
02:33fodasso: Great. Will amend this as soon as possible.
02:33fodasso: tyvm once again
02:33karolherbst: you'll need all of those I think :)
02:33karolherbst: well.. the firmware might be broken for you though and that really messes up your system
02:33karolherbst: so make sure you have a way of recovering in case that happens
04:01fodasso: Haha, managed to load nouveau with the firmware, but software rendering is still faster. =P
04:01fodasso: Too bad reclocking still isn't supported on Turing :)
