Setting
Code:

xrandr --setprovideroutputsource modesetting NVIDIA-0
xrandr --auto

in .xinitrc got things going for the desktop here. As mentioned in an earlier post this only worked with the startx command because these
settings only kick in after loging in with a user. Too late for DMs like KDM/GDM etc..

Somewhere I found a hint (guess it was Archlinux Wiki) to set the xrandr options into /usr/share/config/kdm/Xsetup for KDM. Now I can boot up without KDM turning into a black screen.

Joeklow, good news, congrats:

One of those two is redundant for sure:

Code:

        xrandr --setprovideroutputsource modesetting NVIDIA-0
        xrandr --setprovideroutputsource 0x45 0x2b0


And I doubt whether this:
Code:

   xrandr --output LVDS-0 --on

changes anything.

hello guys i can't get it working... stuck on black screen as well.

kernel: 3.9.6 (zenkernel)
xorg-server: 1.14.3-r2
nvidia-drivers: 331.13

.xinitrc
Code:

xrandr --setprovideroutputsource Intel NVIDIA-0
xrandr --auto
exec startfluxbox


I've changed "modesetting" to "Intel" here bcause xrandr couldn't find modesetting provider:
xrandr --listproviders output provided when i run startx without a xorg.conf file.
Code:

Providers: number : 1
Provider 0: id: 0x47 cap: 0xb, Source Output, Sink Output, Sink Offload crtcs: 3 outputs: 5 associated providers: 0 name:Intel


xorg.conf
Code:

Section "ServerLayout"
    Identifier "layout"
    Screen 0   "nvidia"
    Inactive   "intel"
EndSection

Section "Device"
    Identifier "nvidia"
    Driver     "nvidia"
    BusID      "PCI:1:0:0"
EndSection

Section "Screen"
    Identifier "nvidia"
    Device     "nvidia"
    # Option "UseDisplayDevice" "none"
    # Option "AllowEmptyInitialConfiguration"
EndSection

Section "Device"
    Identifier "intel"
    Driver     "modesetting"
    BusID      "PCI:0:2:0"
EndSection

Section "Screen"
    Identifier "intel"
    Device     "intel"
EndSection


lspci | grep VGA
Code:

00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 2nd Generation Core Processor Family Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 09)
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation GF108M [GeForce GT 525M] (rev a1)


Any clue?

Xorg.0.log
http://bpaste.net/raw/141057/


Looks like xrandr --listproviders is not showing up anything when i run startx with the new xorg.conf.
I get: Could not find provider with name Intel.
I tried also modesettings and i get same error but with modesetting instead of Intel.
If i try to run xrandr --listproviders while black screen it couldn't connect to display :0.0.

Please help :(

No Clue how you guys got this working. I tried everything here and I am having the falling off the bus issue as documented here... https://devtalk.nvidia.com/default/topic/567297/linux/linux-3-10-driver-crash/1

This has been broken for three months i am on 3.10.7-gentoo-r1 and nvidia 331.

Do you have modesetting installed?

If not install it.

1. Make sure you have CONFIG_DRM=YES in your kernel
2. Make sure that your BusID in Section "Device" for both "nvidia" and "intel" are correct
3. Uncomment AllowEmptyInitialConfiguration in xorg.conf
4. Print how the output of xrandr --listproviders look like after startx.

Alright guys I finally got this working. Updating to kernel 3.12.0 solved every problem I had.


Make sure your make.conf has the following


VIDEO_CARDS="intel nvidia"

and you have the following blacklisted

blacklist nouveau
blacklist rivafb
blacklist nvidiafb
blacklist rivatv
blacklist nvidia


Upgrade your kernel to 3.12.0

You will need to add

sys-kernel/gentoo-sources

to your /etc/portage/pakage.accept_keywords

Emerge gentoo-sources

eselect kernel list

eselect kernel set <new kernel>

cd /usr/src/linux

configure your new kernel or use genkernel.

drop the newly configured kernel into /boot
cp arch/x86_64/boot/bzImage /boot/kernel-3.12.0-gentoo

use genkernel to create an initramfs
genkernel --install initramfs

modify /boot/grub/grub.conf with new kernel name and initramfs

boot into new system

perform a @module-rebuild

i got an error here when first doing an optirun so go ahead and unmerge the following

emerge --unmerge bbswitch bumblebee

emerge --depclean

remove all old packages

then re emerge

emerge bumblebee bbswitch

This will pull in a couple of dependencies.

Reboot the system and you should be golden.

I know most of this is in the manual and i probably missed something. This issue really should have been fixed by nvidia in the 3.10 kernel but w/e.

Just trying to give back after weeks of torture.


Thanks!

Hi,
I have this working (but without window manager for same reason) if I run startx but not on GDM (screen remains black).

I understand it is because I need to run xrandr before GDM start.

I added a script in /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.d/ and made it executable

Code:

#!/bin/sh
xrandr --setprovideroutputsource modesetting NVIDIA-0
xrandr --auto


still nothing... do you have any idea where should I put those lines?

Ok, to make it work with GDM I put those lines into /etc/X11/gdm/Init/Default

Probably it is not the best solution but it works.

The problem is that it clones by monitors... I can not set anymore a large desktop on two screens

Where's the point? KDE starting correctly, I can clone display to the external HDMI monitor BUT i can not set anymore a large desktop on two screens :/ My external Monitor on HDMI has a black screen, and turn off.

Do you have any idea what's wrong?

Thx a lot,

Valheru_pl,

You need to you nvidia-settings for 2 monitor set-up I think.

Well, I just bought a laptop with optimus technology, and I tried bumblebee and didn`t like it. I read around and I understand that it is now possible to use the nvidia gpu without bumblebee even though my laptop lacks a hardware muxer to disable the intel.
So and followed all the instructions here but couldn' t get it to work. I uninstalled xdm and bumblebee to make things simplier.

These are my adapters:

Code:

I think it's also worth mentioning that I had to set a kernel command line on grub to get modesetting on kernel:

Code:

cat /etc/default/grub |grep 915
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="drm_kms_helper.edid_firmware=edid/g1310max.bin i915.modeset=1"

cat /sys/module/i915/parameters/modeset
1


The only way I get my Xorg to work is if I don' t have a /etc/X11/xorg.conf file at all, which give me the following /var/log/Xorg.0.log:

http://pastebin.com/rC10K0wf

Which seems to yield intel i965 driver with kms correctly:

Code:

Although I'm not sure because of the last line of this snippet:

Code:

cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log |grep -i modesetting

[   602.724] (II) modesetting: Driver for Modesetting Kernel Drivers: kms
[   602.729] (WW) Falling back to old probe method for modesetting


Does this fallback mean that kms isn't working?

Anyway, without the xorg file, I get a funcional X environment, but without 3D acceleration:

Code:

glxinfo               
name of display: :0.0
Xlib:  extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0".
Xlib:  extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0".

Xlib:  extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0".
Xlib:  extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0".
Xlib:  extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0".


So, following this topic, I tried with the following xorg.conf:

Code:

cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf
Section "ServerLayout"
    Identifier "layout"
    Screen 0 "nvidia"
    Inactive "intel"
EndSection

Section "Device"
    Identifier "nvidia"
    Driver "nvidia"
    BusID "PCI:1:00.0 "
EndSection

Section "Screen"
    Identifier "nvidia"
    Device "nvidia"
    # Uncomment this line if your computer has no display devices connected to
    # the NVIDIA GPU.  Leave it commented if you have display devices
    # connected to the NVIDIA GPU that you would like to use.
    Option "UseDisplayDevice" "none"
EndSection

Section "Device"
    Identifier "intel"
    Driver "modesetting"
    BusID "PCI:0:02.0"
EndSection

Section "Screen"
    Identifier "intel"
    Device "intel"
EndSection



And with the following contents from .xinitrc :
Code:

cat .xinitrc
xrandr --setprovideroutputsource modesetting NVIDIA-0
xrandr --auto
exec startxfce4 --with-ck-launch


Which gives me the following Xorg.0.log:

http://pastebin.com/3d3RUSdT

It seems to try to load nvidia xorg module, but fails (which seems to be the root of my problem):

Code:

Failed to initialize GLX extension (Compatible NVIDIA X driver not found)


Which is strange, because everything seems to be in order. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you very much in advance.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who's spent more than one weekend trying to get proprietary nvidia-drivers working. I don't have access to the machine I'm using right now, but when I get home tonight I'm excited to try what I've seen in this thread. I'll post my results either way; if I get it working I'm going to update the article on the wiki so that others can have an easier time...who wants to spend more time than they need to trying to set up multiple monitors to be productive? :roll:

See this article for the "official" Gentoo guide:
https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/NVIDIA_Driver_with_Optimus_Laptops

More to come!

I posted a working opengl accelerated intel xorg.conf file and a working opengl accelerateded nvidia optimus xorg.conf file here if anyone is interested.

http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-p-7630612.html#7630612

Note that if you enable Nvidia Optimus at the moment, you might have random freezes which will require you to disable the touchpad or convert it to a regular mouse.

logistiker, Thanks for the reply. I had pretty much given up on the issue. It looks like I'll have to try to get it working using advice from that thread. It also looks like I had my configuration right. I think the thing I did wrong was not referencing the EDID correctly (or possibly generating an EDID that was incorrect).

It would be nice if someone wrote a tutorial on how to generate a EDID for the monitors as well and the exact places it needs to be referenced. I.E. does it need to be referenced at /etc/default/grub like this Gentoo Wiki tutorial suggests: https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/NVIDIA_Driver_with_Optimus_Laptops?

Code:
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="drm_kms_helper.edid_firmware=edid/1920x1080_clevo_W670SR.bin"
GRUB_GFXMODE=1920x1080


If you have the time, I'm sure myself and the Gentoo community would appreciate you writing up an EDID guide so that people here in the forums can point others to it as a reference. Or if you want to write out the necessary steps on here for me, I'll put it in the wiki (if you give me your permission). :D

You can just follow the guide on https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/NVIDIA_Driver_with_Optimus_Laptops for generating the EDID firmware file. Also note that you will definitely need the xrandr commands as well in /usr/share/config/kdm/Xsetup if you're using kdm, otherwise you will get a blank screen when starting:

Code:
xrandr --setprovideroutputsource modesetting NVIDIA-0
xrandr --auto


I also noted that the kdm login screen is screwed up as well (multiple squares) but you can still log in with it and everything is fine after that (minus the freeze issue).
