PostPosted: Sat Jan 04, 2014 4:31 pm    Post subject: [SOLVED] NVIDIA Optimus and kernel module issues Reply with quote

I just got a new Laptop with NVIDIA Optimus and I am trying to make it work.

So far I made everything work in the intel card mode, but not nvidia.
There are errors about nvidia kernel module and some missing drivers in lspci (it may be irrelevant but thats what I foud).
Any ideas, what may be wrong?

The kernel was compiled using "genkernel all" with menuconfig used to modify network cards drivers only (everything else should be default)

Couple questions.

Which version of the kernel are you running?

Are you using bumblebee with bbswitch?

Have you blacklisted nouveau?

What does eselect OpenGL list show?

You should install bumblebee and bbswitcb. Try an optirun glxgears (you will need mesa utils installed) post the out put of dmesg if it fails.

Also delete the xorg.conf if your going to use bumblebee.

1. Kernel: 3.12.6-gentoo from ~amd64

2.No, I tried going the xrandr way, but with bumblebee its also not working

3. No, I dont have it installed at all
Code:

# modprobe nouveau
modprobe: FATAL: Module nouveau not found.


4.
Quote:
Available OpenGL implementations:
[1] nvidia *
[2] xorg-x11


5. After running 3 times optirun (last 3 lines of dmesg) other lines from launching bumblebee daemon
Code:

edit:
I updated my system and changed form modeswitching to intel driver, and it removed the GLX part of the error.

I have a laptop with Optimus and have managed to get it working with bbswitch. I haven't tried using xrandr.

With eselect opengl leave it set to xorg-x11 even if you want GLX for your nVidia card. eselect opengl applies to the primary X server which is running on the Intel chip. Bumblebee maintains its own Xorg configuration that modifies the Xorg module path so the nVidia GLX module is picked up by the secondary X server.

I followed the guide on the Gentoo Wiki to get the Intel card set up before worrying about the nVidia card.

I then installed the proprietary nVidia driver and bbswitch. I've posted my configs below in case they are of any help along with some details of my laptop. I don't have an xorg.conf for the main X server.

I'm currently using tuxonice-sources-3.12.7 configured myself starting from one of Pappy's Kernel Seeds.

My config files are same, so issue is not here.

I also found 2 new things:
1. When I do "modprobe nvidia" the terminal freeze, but there is no output in dmesg (probably important, is there any other kernel log than dmesg that may get more data about that?), lsmod, shows nvidia is loaded, and rmmod says it is in use and cannot be unloaded
2. When running optirun I have:
Code:

1. When I do "modprobe nvidia" the terminal freeze, but there is no output in dmesg (probably important, is there any other kernel log than dmesg that may get more data about that?), lsmod, shows nvidia is loaded, and rmmod says it is in use and cannot be unloaded

Do you mean from within a desktop environment or from a framebuffer terminal outside X? Either way, you shouldn't have to load the nvidia module manually - bumblebee should handle the loading and unloading of the driver. When the bbswitch module is loaded (part of bumblebee) it will switch the nvidia card off to save power. The optirun command switches the nvidia card on, loads the nvidia module, starts a secondary X server using the nvidia card, runs whatever command you specified after it on the secondary X server forwarding the output to the primary X server, then shuts down the secondary X, unloads the nvidia module and switches the nvidia card off again to save power. It could be that modprobe is hanging because the nvidia module is probing hardware that is switched off (this is a guess).

You can check the status of the card yourself by doing cat /proc/acpi/bbswitch. As root you can also control the power status of the card by issuing echo ON > /proc/acpi/bbswitch and echo OFF > /proc/acpi/bbswitch. If the card refuses to change state when you issue these commands check the output of dmesg as this is a problem with bumblebee.

An alternative when nothing is shown in dmesg is to take a look in /var/log/everything/current (using less as it can get rather long).

There used to be two commands to manage the secondary graphics card: primusrun and optirun. Optirun incorporated the functionality from primusrun so it wasn't needed any more but I reckon there are still references to it in the bumblebee source. These messages are not errors.

I have this problem too. I didn't used to and am trying to solve it myself.

This isn't an error. Portage will bail if it finds an error. This is the Makefile from nvidia-drivers echoing the commands that would be executed if an error occurred.

1. I tried to modprobe from both desktop enviorement and framebuffer and both hanged
2. /proc/acpi/bbswitch by default was on, and I am able to switch it OFF and ON, it changes the colour of my power button led, from orange (ON) to blue (OFF), so it seems to work.
3. I dont have /var/log/everything

edit:
I was so dumb, the issue was in dmesg but long before loading of bumblebee. There is a kernel crash report similar to this one:
https://devtalk.nvidia.com/default/topic/654649/driver-331-20-crashes-with-kernels-3-12-x/
Kernel version seem to fit, just need to find a solution.

331.20 was masked for a while. I was one of the ones that didn't have issues. thankfully. There is a newer version out so add
x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers

to your /etc/portage/package.accept_keywords

then do an emerge -auD @world

This should pull in the new driver. I would recommend always running the unstable video drivers from nvidia. I havent seen to many bugs and found that the extra performance of the newer drivers far outweighs any headaches.

Also it would be a good idea to bump up to the latest 3.12 kernel 3.12.8 is out now. You can follow the directions here http://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Kernel/Upgrade just do the make oldconfig method nothing seems to have changed except updated drivers so I don't think you should bother redoing everything with genkernel. Dont forget to regenerate your initramfs.

These video cards are brutal to get working but once its up and running you should be good for a while.

I wont call this issue solved, but I found a way to make optirun work.
The solution is to downgrade the kernel to 3.10.25-gentoo. All the kernels higher than that in portage are crashing when loading nvidia driver.

Just a question, it is a good idea to do "optirun startx", or "optirun gdm" to make the whole system run on good graphics card?

Also another problem came, after trying to launch a game in it.
I did "$optirun playonlinux" launched steam, so far ok, but when I try to launch Portal2 I get a popup error message "failed to lock vertex buffer in CMeshDX8::LockVertexBuffer" and game crash. Console says:
Code:

[VGL] WARNING: The OpenGL rendering context obtained on X display
[VGL]    :8 is indirect, which may cause performance to suffer.
[VGL]    If :8 is a local X display, then the framebuffer device
[VGL]    permissions may be set incorrectly.


I found on steam forums that: https://support.steampowered.com/kb_article.php?s=d92b25b23c46f6ac4517364fa1bf56cc&ref=9404-WRDH-5396
Quote:
The direct cause of this error is not having enough paged pool memory free for the game engine.


That makes no sense, since I have 16GB RAM and 2GB Graphics card RAM. Am I missing something?

edit:
Another test, another fail, Minecraft without optirun (on crappy intel card) : 35 FPS, with optirun (on good nvidia card): 15 FPS.

edit2:
League of Legends also doesnt work, this time the error says
Code:

wine client error:0: version mismatch 453/454.
Your wineserver binary was not upgraded correctly,
or you have an older one somewhere in your PATH.
Or maybe the wrong wineserver is still running?

And this makes even less sense than the memory issue, since without optirun game launches without any wine issues.

edit3:
Testing more games, everythingthe same, Dota dont launch with optirun, tremulous (natve linux game) with optirun 60 FPS, without 90+ (game caps at 90 FPS)

I also found the issue with dark textres: http://dev.dota2.com/showthread.php?t=19551&page=5
They are saying there that even on windows if you have intel graphics cards from some families, that weird things happen, the issue is that intel cards dont support 32bit colors (8R8G8B8A), so I guess, if I will make my nvidia card handle games the issue should be fixed.

This time I am trying different way, Steam recomends using primus so I installed primus and bumblebee from bumblebee overlay and primus is not working (I changed the bumblebee config to use primus so no -b primus flag is used):

Weird things are:

With x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers-331.38 Optimus, Nvidia GT-750M, glxgears
full screen says it runs at 1350fps. There are some configuration hints here:

https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/NVIDIA_Driver_with_Optimus_Laptops

The example configuration I provide might be more complex than necessary,
you could try a simpler configuration first.

Thx gienah, this helped a bit, now I can launch the system (Xfce) using nvidia graphics card, or at least it looks like its using it.
The problem is not everything works:
1. I cant launch gnome session, not sure where are logs, so cant check
2. League of legends not launching. Crash log:

Hopefully you might be able to debug it some more, and someone might know more.
I don't run gnome, and the machine I configured this on is not mine.

I have only tried some simple tests on the machine on loan:

Start KDE (after configuring a Display Manager to run the randr commands to
avoid the black screen)

glxgears runs (says at 1350fps when maximised)

openarena runs, at 1920x1080

I added one more step and almost everything works now: I had to add my user to video group, this made some games run (Portal, LoL), others increased fps (minecraft), but still cannot launch gnome session from xrandr.

I need to test if there are any more issues left, if not, will mark thread as solved, cose with bumblebee everything so far works.

Solution:
Code:

1. Downgrade kernel to linux-3.10.25-gentoo (This will fix crashing nvidia diver)
2. Install bumblebee and primus from bumblebee overlay (primus is required, without primus I get about 15 FPS, on intel card its 30 FPS and with primus its 60 FPS, used minecraft as benchmark)
3. Add user to video group (solves problem of bad colors in games and increase FPS)
4. Make sure bumblebee daemon is running
5. Launch games using optirun or primusrun (no parameters required)


edit:
Still cant change brightness level in tremulous
Wine have problems with optirun, primusrun seem ok
