Xorg 7.7, Nouveau drivers and resolution in TC10.1
« on: October 20, 2019, 04:10:03 PM »
Hello:

My rig running (usually Devuan ASCII) holds two Nvidia Quadro FX 580 video cards in turn which run three monitors in Xinerama mode using the NVidia 340 legacy drivers.

Code: [Select]
--- snip ---
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation G96GL [Quadro FX 580] (rev a1)
02:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation G96GL [Quadro FX 580] (rev a1)
--- snip ---

When booting TC10.1, I start off with just one monitor mostly because the xorg.conf file which works perfectly well on two other versions of Devuan ASCII will not work as there are no legacy 340 drivers for TC10.1 which is/should not be an issue as I really do not need to use three monitors with TC.

So I use the nouveau driver available in the TC10.1 repository.

This is what loads in onboot.list:

Code: [Select]
Xorg-7.7.tcz
graphics-4.19.10-tinycore.tcz
xf86-video-nouveau.tcz

Everything seems right save for the fact that I cannot get the 1280x1024 resolution I get with the other setups.

This is the output of xrandr:

Code: [Select]
tc@box:~$ xrandr -q
xrandr: Failed to get size of gamma for output default
Screen 0: minimum 640 x 480, current 1024 x 768, maximum 1024 x 768
default connected 1024x768+0+0 0mm x 0mm
   1024x768       0.00*
   800x600        0.00 
   640x480        0.00 
tc@box:~$

But the Dell monitor I'm using can do 1280x1024 at both 60.00 and 75.00 Hz.

Code: [Select]
tc@box:~$ cvt -v 1280 1024 60
# 1280x1024 59.89 Hz (CVT 1.31M4) hsync: 63.67 kHz; pclk: 109.00 MHz

tc@box:~$ cvt -v 1280 1024 75

tc@box:~$

Code: [Select]
tc@box:~$ gtf 1280 1024 60
# 1280x1024 @ 60.00 Hz (GTF) hsync: 63.60 kHz; pclk: 108.88 MHz

tc@box:~$ gtf 1280 1024 75

tc@box:~$

I have started to put together an xorg.conf file (adapting the working one in Devuan ASCII) to see if I can get the monitor working but to no avail:

I'm attaching my last Xorg.0.log file.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance,

Hi madmax
Code: [Select]
Xorg-7.7.tcz
graphics-4.19.10-tinycore.tcz
xf86-video-nouveau.tcz
...
Make sure  graphics-4.19.10-tinycore.tcz  is at the beginning of  onboot.lst.

From the log file:
Code: [Select]
[    24.443] (EE) Failed to load module "nv" (module does not exist, 0)I think it  may be looking for  xf86-video-nv.tcz.

Your bootloader options need a couple of corrections:
Code: [Select]
BOOT_IMAGE=/boot/vmlinuz waitusb=4 vga=795 tz=-3 acpi_osi=Linux blacklist=mei_me agp=off ipv6.disable=1 enable_mtrr_cleanup pcie_aspm=off nmi_watchdog=0waitusb=5:UUID="0cf4d199-2dc7-44d7-90ed-3e070d73cd93" tce=UUID="0cf4d199-2dc7-44d7-90ed-3e070d73cd93" initrd=/boot/core.gzRemove:
Code: [Select]
waitusb=4 vga=795Add a space to this:
Code: [Select]
nmi_watchdog=0waitusb=5:UUID="0cf4d199-2dc7-44d7-90ed-3e070d73cd93"so it looks like this:
Code: [Select]
nmi_watchdog=0 waitusb=5:UUID="0cf4d199-2dc7-44d7-90ed-3e070d73cd93"
From the log:
Code: [Select]
[    24.607] (EE) Screen 0 deleted because of no matching config section.I think that's due to  card 2  being commented out. See if this works any better:

Hello Rich:
Sorry for the delay, I was fiddling with xorg.conf ...

Make sure  graphics-4.19.10-tinycore.tcz is ...
Done

The list's first four files are these:
Code: [Select]
graphics-4.19.10-tinycore.tcz
xf86-video-nouveau.tcz
xf86-video-nv.tcz
Xfbdev.tcz
...

I think it  may be looking for  xf86-video-nv.tcz.
Fixed.
But it made no difference.

Your bootloader options ...
Remove:
Code: [Select]
waitusb=4 vga=795Removed waitusb=4.

With respect to vga=795, it made no difference.
But it's the only way I can get reasonable size fonts in my 19" monitor, so I left it in.

Add a space ...
Yes, caught that right after my last post.
Haven't (yet) mastered the use of paint/copy/paste with the mouse in TC.

... due to card 2  being commented out.
I tried a few combinations and it got old really fast ...  =-/

So I sat a while and thought that if this xorg.conf worked properly in Devuan ASCII it should work in TC. After all, I transplanted it from Mint into PCLinuxOS and then into two Devuan installations without these issues.

Granted, all this using the NVidia proprietary drivers but then that would be the only difference between these two configurations.

So I took the working xorg.conf and made the changes you can see documented:

Code: [Select]

To my chagrin, it did not work and X would not start.

As you can see, the complaints we saw earlier are not there anymore but problems with the drivers start at [ 24.705], which may (?) rule out an xorg.conf issue.

A search on the web found me this:

https://nouveau.freedesktop.org/wiki/TroubleShooting/#index1h3


Quote from: nouveau.freedesktop.org
Xorg fails to start with "(EE) [drm] failed to open device"

Your DDX does not work with your current kernel and/or libdrm. There are at least three possible reasons for this: the nouveau DRM kernel module is not loaded, a version mismatch between the Nouveau DRM and libdrm, or KMS being disabled.

First check, that lsmod command lists nouveau. If not, do modprobe nouveau to load the nouveau DRM kernel module, and check the kernel log for possible errors.

If the kernel module nouveau is loaded according to lsmod command, but there are no kernel messages about nouveau at all, then most likely Nouveau KMS is disabled. This prevents the driver to work at all. Possible places to disable KMS are:

    kernel command line with: nomodeset, drm.modeset=0, nouveau.modeset=0 or similar
    modprobe.conf or modprobe.d/ adding the module options drm modeset=0 or nouveau modeset=0
    initramfs carrying the above module options

Check and remove all those that you may find, and retry.
---
Inserting nouveau.ko fails

drm.ko needs to be inserted first. Make sure you are inserting the drm.ko that was built at the same time as nouveau.ko. Your kernel might provide another drm.ko which is incompatible.

I am writing this from my TC10.1 installation, starting X without using xorg.conf.

1.
Code: [Select]
tc@box:~$ lsmod | grep nouveau
tc@box:~$
The nouveau module is not loaded, but Xorg.0.log (the actual one) says it was loaded:

Code: [Select]
tc@box:~$ cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | grep nouveau

tc@box:~$

2.
Code: [Select]
tc@box:~$ modprobe nouveau
modprobe: module nouveau not found in modules.dep
tc@box:~$

This is what a search for nouveau brings up:

Code: [Select]
tc@box:~$ slocate nouveau

/usr/local/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/nouveau_drv.so
/usr/local/tce.installed/xf86-video-nouveau
tc@box:~$

3.
drm.ko is present in the system but nouveau.ko is not
Code: [Select]
tc@box:~$ slocate drm.ko
/usr/local/lib/modules/4.19.10-tinycore/kernel/drivers/gpu/drm/hisilicon/hibmc/hibmc-drm.ko.gz

Code: [Select]
tc@box:~$ slocate nouveau.ko
tc@box:~$

This is where I run out of ideas.
Let me know if  you need more data.

Thanks in advance,

MM

Hello:
Let me know if  you need more data.

I neglected to attach Xorg.0.log for the X sessions without the use of xorg.conf.
So here it is.

Do note the same problem:

Code: [Select]
[    24.326] (EE) [drm] Failed to open DRM device for pci:0000:02:00.0: -19
[    24.452] (EE) [drm] Failed to open DRM device for pci:0000:02:00.0: -19

It would seem that what is happening is that for whatever reason, nouveau-firmware (nouveau.ko?) is not listed as a dependency for the nouveau driver.

See this thread from last February by a chap running Ubuntu who had an issue similar to mine:
https://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2413018

Specifically this post:
https://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2413018&p=13839202#post13839202

... too bad that a switch back using "Software & Update" to nouveau did not automatically install this.

Thanks in advance,

MM

Hi madmax
Try changing:
Code: [Select]
Driver         "nouveau" # was "nvidia"to:
Code: [Select]
Driver         "nv"

Yes, you have about 30 minutes to edit your post.

Hello Rich:
Try changing:
Code: [Select]
Driver         "nouveau" # was "nvidia"to:
Code: [Select]
Driver         "nv"
Done ...
But no joy.

On the bright side, at least the log file has a different output:

Hi madmax
That's progress. It finally found a driver for your boards.

... Can't find anything on the web with respect to Requested Entity already in use. ...
I think it's complaining about assigning the same card twice. I haven't really dealt with multi monitor setups, but doesn't  Xinerama
need to be enabled for this? You show that option as commented out:
Code: [Select]
# ---> This section stays the same but rems out Xinerama
Section "ServerLayout"
    Identifier     "layout0"
    Screen      0  "ScreenLeft" LeftOf "ScreenCenter"
    Screen      1  "ScreenCenter" 0 0
    Screen      2  "ScreenRight" RightOf "ScreenCenter"
#   Option         "Xinerama" "1"
EndSection

Hello Rich:
... progress. It finally found a driver ...
Indeed ...
But only thanks to your help/patience.

... complaining about assigning the same card twice.
... but doesn't  Xinerama need to be enabled ...
Yes, but I commented it out because I thought it was an NVidia feature and because my only need in TC is the 1280x1024 resolution.
I was expecting to run just one monitor.

But I changed it and Xinerama gets enabled.
Unfortunately, the entity issue remains.
