18:52 mcavity2: hi, I have an older laptop with a NVidia 8600m [gt?] card. It is listed as NV50.. I'm having some problems with the nouveau driver and was wondering where I can report / maybe get some help with it?
21:03 TimurTabi: You mean besides here?
21:36 karolherbst: mcavity2: depends on the issue
21:36 karolherbst: but either file a bug against mesa/mesa or drm/nouveau on fdos gitlab or just tell what's up
21:53 mcavity2: ok, on the buggy side i get video corruption in some apps
21:54 mcavity2: and I am not sure if i have managed to properly install the firmware blob as per the instruction on the nouveau page.
21:54 karolherbst: mhhh... mesa 22.3?
21:54 karolherbst: or fedora?
21:54 mcavity2: the extraction script gives "magic" errors
21:55 mcavity2: so i'm using linux lite. which is i believe a ubuntu derivative.
21:56 mcavity2: they have a system monitor application - it has a gpu moniter.. if i click that i get instant corruption.. though it tries to fix itself.
22:00 karolherbst: mhhh
22:00 karolherbst: what's the mesa version you are on?
22:00 mcavity2: give me a min and i can show you what i saw..
22:00 karolherbst: versions older than 22.3 have more or less broken multithreading, so you might hit that
22:00 mcavity2: well its a brand new version of linux lite.. so i expert pretty recent
22:01 karolherbst: well... sadly that doesn't mean much
22:05 mcavity2: know how i would see that?
22:06 karolherbst: glxinfo should tell you
22:06 karolherbst: grep for version or something
22:07 mcavity2: mesa 22.0.5 ?
22:08 karolherbst: yeah... that's a bit old
22:08 mcavity2: but dont know that im even useing mesa at that point
22:08 karolherbst: sadly I am too much of a chicken to get those fixes backported as they change like the entire driver :(
22:09 karolherbst: mcavity2: launching apps with "LIBGL_ALWAYS_SOFTWARE=1" probably fixes those issues, no?
