Hi,

I get an error about this error from the boot.


Code:

[    0.689615] i915 0000:00:02.0: Direct firmware load for i915/kbl_dmc_ver1_04.bin failed with error -2
[    0.689617] i915 0000:00:02.0: Failed to load DMC firmware i915/kbl_dmc_ver1_04.bin. Disabling runtime power management.


It existe :
Code:
 ll /lib/firmware/i915/kbl_dmc_ver1_04.bin

Code:

-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 8840 17 sept. 10:42 /lib/firmware/i915/kbl_dmc_ver1_04.bin


I can not say whether it is serious or not.

If you use an initramfs

From an archlinux forum reply
Quote:
The firmware for built-in modules is loaded from initramfs. You need to edit your /etc/mkinitcpio.conf and add the /usr/lib/firmware/i915/kbl_dmc_ver1_04.bin to the FILES array there. Once done, regenerate your initramfs by running mkinitcpio.

y351,

Code:
[ 0.689615] i915 0000:00:02.0: Direct firmware load for i915/kbl_dmc_ver1_04.bin failed with error -2


At that time, root is not yet mounted so /lib/firmware/ cannot be read.
With i915 built into the kernel, all the required firmware must be included in the kernel too.

There is an example of how to do this on the wiki

https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Linux_firmware

The wiki article isn't 100% clear how to install the firmware into the kernel, but you'll want something like this...

Code:
CONFIG_EXTRA_FIRMWARE="intel-ucode/06-9e-09 i915/kbl_dmc_ver1.bin i915/kbl_dmc_ver1_01.bin i915/kbl_dmc_ver1_04.bin i915/kbl_guc_ver9_14.bin i915/kbl_guc_ver9_39.bin i915/kbl_huc_ver02_00_1810.bin intel/dsp_fw_kbl.bin intel/dsp_fw_kbl_v2042.bin intel/dsp_fw_kbl_v2630.bin intel/dsp_fw_kbl_v3266.bin intel/dsp_fw_kbl_v3420.bin intel/ibt-hw-37.8.bseq intel/ibt-hw-37.8.10-fw-22.50.19.14.f.bseq iwlwifi-3168-21.ucode iwlwifi-3168-22.ucode iwlwifi-3168-27.ucode iwlwifi-3168-29.ucode rtl_nic/rtl8411-1.fw rtl_nic/rtl8411-2.fw"

Thanks for yours advices.

Yes, i use initramfs to boot from crypted device : so, in fact, from the initramfs boot, the root mount was not been mounted yet...
I did not remember whether i build into the kernel with the firmware...
This error is new...and since when compiling new kernel, i use to do
Code:
make olddefconfig

to import the old config kernel, i did not noticed any sort of error from before.

Right now, when checking, the option of the kernel here is :
Code:
Build named firmware blobs into the kernel binary


So, it must be better to define into this option, the path of the firmware : /lib/firmware

What do you think about this option ?

y351,

When you put a file name in there, you will get a new option appear for a directory to prepend to the file names.
That's the method though.
For intel video, it comes with a warning that built in may prevent suspend to RAM from working.

I had same error, just added i915/kbl_dmc_ver1_04.bin to menuconfig Device Drivers -> Generic Driver Options -> Firmware loader -> Build named firmware blobs into the kernel binary and its gone.

Yes, after compiling again with the suggestion above, and reboot, the failed message is gone.

Thanks again for your return.

I follow the article but I still have the same issue.
So in my kernel config I checked item "Include in-kernel firmware blobs in kernel binary" and specified required blobs in the item "External firmware blobs to build into the kernel binary".
But dmesg still report the error (I've also checked the item "Driver Core verbose debug messages" for detailed log):
Code:
1926 [    0.219836] firmware_class: __allocate_fw_buf: fw-i915/kbl_dmc_ver1_01.bin buf=ffff880424322380$

1933 [    0.219852] i915 0000:00:02.0: Failed to load DMC firmware [https://01.org/linuxgraphics/downloads/firmware], disabling runtime power management.

I understand that blob is not found because the file system is not mounted yet. But I can't understand why kernel does search for the blob on the file system.
As far as I understand the blob must be built into the kernel.
Can anybody help me?

It seems the kernel try to load the firmware but the blob isn't there (data=(null) size=0).
Also your path starts with "fw-i915/..." and the linux-firmware package installs the related files to "i915/..." so you should recheck that before building it.
To avoid this hassle build the i915 driver as a module, it will automatically load the right version for your GPU (the path is hardcoded in the driver source) from the file system.

Thnx for the reply. It help me a lot.
A root cause of the issue was in the included blobs.
I typed by mistake blobs for 'coffe lake' cpu, but my cpu was 'kaby lake'. So kernel could not find firmware for my cpu.
