slackware 14.1 from current tree 10/23 - kernel 3.10.17 bug (nouveau)


hi, I tested an home made iso from the current slackware tree. when I booted from the dvd there was no framebuffer console. Then I installed lilo and got nouveau and errors from the dmesg command. Now that I compiled the 3.4.67 kernel all is fine. The 3d grafik is now faster (KDE) and there is no nouveau boot errors. I will go back to slackware 14.0 and give you some log files later. Im ready to test 14.1 agin before its released. Have a nice day!! Happy Haloween!!!

I have an up to date -current installed with a nVidia card using nouveau and that works.

To try narrowing down the issue, please send output of
Code:
/sbin/lspci -vnn | grep -A10 VGA
and the error messages you had in dmesg.

That could possibly help debug something before release of Slackware-14.1

Mine also seems to be working well, apart from glxgears thinking I'm "GLXVBlank true" when I'm clearly not.

The correct syntax would be

Code:
/sbin/lspci -vnn | grep -A10 VGA


By the way, here the nouveau driver is working fine with latest Slackware-current 32bit edition (at time of writing):

Code:
$/sbin/lspci -vnn | grep -A10 VGA

KDE doesn't feel slow with the 3.10.17 kernel anymore. But the error messages are still there. But the main problem is that I don't get nouveau to sett up the frame buffer console when using the live intsall iso as a boot loader, (boot into the localy installed system from usb)

do you want me to boot from the usb into the hard drive and get the dmesg from there too?

In dmesg output we see that handover doesn't occur as ther is no line like these (e.g.)
Code:
Console: switching to colour frame buffer device 160x64 
fb0: nouveaufb frame buffer device
About the error messages like this one:
Code:
[    5.770816] nouveau E[    PBUS][0000:02:00.0] MMIO read of 0x00000008 FAULT at 0x100238
I have no clue.

Still you can use kernel 3.4.6n on Slackware-14.1 as you know, a config file for it being provided in /testing. As kernel version is somehow frozen for 14.1 now and if you suspect a regression in nouveau support, I'd suggest you investigate further with help of this page and possibly file a bug.
