F25: nVidia M2000M kmod driver

Hi,

For a new laptop using the nVidia M2000M, I need the kmod driver as advised on https://rpmfusion.org/Howto/nVidia#C...Quadro.2FTesla. However, I can't find it. dnf doesn't list it, and elrepo shows various but won't install because it of "error(s) in search for dependencies". Can someone please gives some hints on how to deal with this? It's been a while since I used Fedora with kmod.

Update: I managed to install the driver using Yum Extender, BUT: no change on the screen resolution! I'm still on 800x600 using a full HD 17" display. So what am I missing or doing wrong?

Update 2: after running nvidia-xconfig, the xserver doesn't want to start, leaving me with a black screen. Looking in /etc/X11, I find nvidia-xorg.conf (only has device section with identifier = videocard 0), xorg.conf (full contents, and device section also has vendorname nvidia) and xorg.conf.nvidia-xconfig-original (empty). So what's going wrong?!

Update 3: found out that I have to discard the rpmfusion nVidia drivers and go for Bumblebee. However, still not working properly.

Thanks

hvn

Re: F25: nVidia M2000M kmod driver

OK, I've found out that it's not any driver that bothers me. It's Wayland which I want to disable, but can't found out how. All info refers to /etc/gdm, however, I'm running LXDE, not Gnome. So can anyone tell me how to do it in LXDE so I use Xorg?

LXDE doesn't support or use Wayland yet so you're already using Xorg. I can't advise further on Nvidia specific issues though as it's years since I had to load in proprietary Nadia drivers for linux. What you're describing definitely sounds like a configuration issue though so someone should be able to point you in the right direction with the resolution

Thank you for your answer. The problem is that whenever there is a xorg.conf in /etc/X11, X won't start. As soon as I remove or rename it, X starts into 800x600. Even after Xorg -configure and copying/renaming it to /etc/X11, X stops working. Right now, I'm clueless.

Question Re: F25: nVidia M2000M kmod driver

http://www.forums.fedoraforum.org/sh...58&postcount=6

Enjoy, hvniekerk... In order for me to help you, I will need you to very carefully read my analysis (I spent on it 2.5 hours, to learn MORE myself), and explain to me the differences between your logs: what did you in the meantime to make TRUE Nvidia driver to be downloaded?

Re: F25: nVidia M2000M kmod driver

Hi nobody,

I've been reading these logs (and older ones) myself as well and I've been thinking that same question: what did I do?

Between the previous failures leading to this post and the uploaded 2 logs in the other thread: uninstalling the bumblebee-project, reinstalling the nVidia driver for M2000M and last: installing the akmod and kmod from rpmfusion.

Just using the nVidia driver has led me to nowhere, and so did bumblebee and rpmfusion. The effects were that without any of these, my resolution is 800x600. With any of these and xorg.conf present: no graphics.

So, again, the very last thing that caused the change you ask for: installing the akmod+kmod next to the nVidia driver.

I hope you can help me.

I'll reply to this one, since we are spread on two different threads, and I do not like this, since I feel I am spread over two pitfalls!

And I'll continue (if any success at all, hope for the best, from here).
_______

Hump... La la... Tralala! I am reading the log, and getting all sorts of crazy ideas. So let me go with ones which have NOTHING to (on the first, second... 99th glance) with GFX.

[1] Do you use UEFI BIOS settings, or legacy ones (my best bet is UEFI settings)? I need answer on this one (to check, you go to BIOS, and see what is your setting on: BIOS mode: Legacy ONLY, Hybrid, or UEFI only).

[2] I see (dead people) the following in the dmesg log:
Quote:
[ 0.068161] smpboot: CPU0: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-6700HQ CPU @ 2.60GHz (family: 0x6, model: 0x5e, stepping: 0x3)
[ 0.068166] Performance Events: PEBS fmt3+, Skylake events, 32-deep LBR, full-width counters, Intel PMU driver.
In other words, I see SkyLake Core 6 i7 CPUID: 0x605E3 . I see this:
https://ark.intel.com/products/88967...up-to-3_50-GHz

And I see the following (Q3 2015 launch date - more precisely September 2nd, 2015, don't ask how I know)... So this does mean that you bought your laptop in Q1, 2016, correct?

[3] What is the actual date on the (AMI supposedly) BIOS you are using (please, go to CMOS BIOS and find this for me on System Information page)?

[4] I need answers on previous questions, than, the next one is: did you ever reprogram BIOS, to newer one? If you bought it in Q1, 2016, you should, since there are... Some problems with SKL-U MCUs. And, if you go to manufacturer site, you do it. Easy.

[5] Your current state of the dmesg log does NOT match with what I advertised back then (Xorg.1.log). Your system is back to Xorg.0.log. How I know this:
Quote:
[ 0.952163] efifb: framebuffer at 0xb0000000, using 1876k, total 1875k

[ 0.953732] intel_idle: state C9-SKL is disabled
[ 0.953986] intel_idle: lapic_timer_reliable_states 0xffffffff
Please, please... Do NOT touch anything in BIOS (just, please, scavenge for me info I want to know).

[6] I need the whole system to go to Xorg.1.log state. Please (could you do it for me)!

Let me slam/kill them in Fedora 24 kernel Bugzilla. And confuse them. "Diese Leute sind ganze verruckt!" German (these people - INTEL are totally crazy)!!!

Please, check if you can upgrade to better BIOS: 5 months already passed, though I do NOT think that this is relevant.

Can't check it without downloading an upgrade-tool. So I'll let it be at this point.

I was talking about a boot setting in UEFI.

By my name? Its origin sure is Dutch.

And I'm back at the Xorg.1.log state, which is very uncomfortable working: Xorg trying to start but failing and falling back to F1 screen. Have to work in F2 or higher, so have to switch back every few seconds from F1 to F2.

Question Re: F25: nVidia M2000M kmod driver

OK, my dutch friend,

For now, we split the problems... One went farther, so I'll take over this in Bugzilla: [SHOW-STOPPER] Complete confusion by INTEL Corporation\INTEL claims BDW-U = SKL-U???

I will make this one Public (I'll also notify Tom's HW and Anandtech), so I'll make some public show, until we find the ultimate Truth about INTEL Lies!
_______

But this does not solve your problem with Nvidia. For sure. Has nothing to do with it.

I see, you have UEFI BIOS, fairly recent (I see there MCU revision 0x9E, which should be good enough to solve some mortal SKL problems in the past - with the MCUs < 0x7E).

Now, since you are back to the state I requested, I need again Xorg log, as well as dmesg. Let us see what now these two logs tell us?

And I also need to understand, what you did to return context to this state?

Thank you,
_nobody_

Question Re: F25: nVidia M2000M kmod driver

I am back (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PBAQESrBx2U),

[1] Please, while going to Fedora 25 (LXDE) assure that you have Xorg. To check it, run the following: $ echo $XDG_SESSION_TYPE (should return "x11")?
From the Xorg.0 log, you are running Xorg, i clearly see:
Quote:
[ 12697.908] X.Org X Server 1.19.0
Release Date: 2016-11-15
[ 12697.909] X Protocol Version 11, Revision 0
[ 12697.909] Build Operating System: 4.7.9-200.fc24.x86_64

[2] Please, upgrade your system to the latest kernel: 4.8.12-300.fc25.x86_64. Then try to see if (after first two steps, situation does improve)?

-------

[3] Here is the grub2 kernel command line:
Quote:
[ 12697.909] Current Operating System: Linux Klerksdorp 4.8.11-300.fc25.x86_64 #1 SMP Mon Nov 28 18:24:51 UTC 2016 x86_64

Please, remove these three elements from the command line (and let see if KMS enabled do something good to this problem - anyway, it should be run inside Nvidia driver as well)?

-------

[4] Here is the other clue: AK is correct: This is part of your latest the Xorg.0 log:
Quote:
[ 12697.912] (II) systemd-logind: logind integration requires -keeptty and -keeptty was not provided, disabling logind integration
Here is VERY good read, you should check with your system (and to try to experiment, in order to remove this line):
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/PRIME

And see, what do you really have in: /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ (and try to play with different options)?

It boots in very small print (full HD?) but seems to hang on IPv6 link not ready. My WAN connection is mainly IPv6.

Arrow Re: F25: nVidia M2000M kmod driver

[1] It is OK. The command is for GNOME desktop ($ echo $XDG_SESSION_TYPE), so now we know that it is implemented ONLY to get quickly what is the Xserver on GNOME (x11 or wayland). You are running on X.Org X Server 1.19.0, we know this from the logs.

[2] All Good. Could not hurt (I had very little fate that this might help). Anyway, the latest should be the greatest.

[3] Please, disable/make workaround IPV6, let kernel boot to the desktop. We are trying to solve Nvidia problem.

[4] Do not reinstall kmod-nvidia. Just try to do some setup in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ based on the link I gave you, and see if this improves logs
