[SOLVED] Update made system use llvmpipe instead of Nvidia

First off, hello all!
This is my first post, so I hope I angry nobody.

Minor backstory: a few weeks ago (maybe 2 months) during an update (pacman -Syu) I vaguely remember being asked something regarding mesa (32bit - 64bit), maybe. I remembered because it was the first and only time pacman asked me something during an update and I think I made the wrong choice.
I believe eversince then I was using llvmpipe software rendering, but I did not notice because I rarely play any games lately and everything else kinda works the same.

But I really want to fix it now and after a few days of searching and trying, I am out of ideas.
Already tried removing xorg.conf. No dice. All I get is a bad resolution.
Already tried checking/reinstalling most of nvidia related packages, removing most of 32bit mesa/GL/EV stuff.
I am up to date (did a -Syu and reboot right before posting).

The only thing I noticed fixes the issue is removing /usr/lib32 path from ld.so.conf.d/* . Ofc doing that breaks other things (ironically, the steam launcher), but it might be useful info in debugging.

Re: [SOLVED] Update made system use llvmpipe instead of Nvidia

Remove the /etc/X11/xorg.conf and retry. Nothing of use happens there, and there's some potential loading conflict with what it should load from the drm-outputclass conf.

Should that not suffice you might need to enable early KMS to ensure that the display is ready before xorg loads: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/NV … de_setting

FWIW you have confirmed in dmesg/update logs that the kernel module for nvidia loads properly?

I already tried that. I stated in the initial post that the only thing changing is the resolution (to something like 800x600). glxinfo still shows llvmpipe as being used.

Will look into this and come back with an update.

Tried that. No dice.


I should probably re-state that removing the /usr/lib32 path from the ls.so.conf.d/* files fixes the software rendering (llvmppe) issue, while creating others (the only one I saw before reverting was the text in the steam login was garbled and no input was possible in the fields of that window. Probably other applications were impacted too, but didn't get a chance to notice them.

This does NOT happen anymore.
I removed some lib32  GL-related packages (and what depended on them) since then

sudo pacman -Rs lib32-mesa lib32-libglvnd lib32-glu lib32-nvidia-cg-toolkit lib32-nvidia-utils lib32-sdl2 steam lib32-faudio lib32-glew pcsx2 wine winetricks
sudo pacman -Rs lib32-llvm-libs lib32-mesa-vdpau 

  and I cannot reproduce it anymore.

Re: [SOLVED] Update made system use llvmpipe instead of Nvidia

I just realised something in the quick overlooking of my last message. Just in case anyone read my previous post in a hurry:

I still have the issue. Still stuck to software rendering.

It's just the "fix" I previously found that became not reproducible.
Where else could I look and trace/investigate this ?

Re: [SOLVED] Update made system use llvmpipe instead of Nvidia

Found a solution that works.

Make the xorg.conf contain something like this:

Section "Files"
    ModulePath "/usr/lib/nvidia/xorg"
    ModulePath "/usr/lib/xorg/modules"
EndSection

In my case that is the path needed for the missing "glxserver_nvidia"  ( pointed out in the Xorg log at this line:    NVIDIA: Failed to load module "glxserver_nvidia" (module does not exist, 0)    )

Those paths can be found in :

$ cat /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-nvidia-drm-outputclass.conf
Section "OutputClass"
    Identifier "nvidia"
    MatchDriver "nvidia-drm"
    Driver "nvidia"
    Option "AllowEmptyInitialConfiguration"
    ModulePath "/usr/lib/nvidia/xorg"
    ModulePath "/usr/lib/xorg/modules"
EndSection

I have absolutely no clue why the config from /usr/share is ignored. Long live X11, NVIDIA, linux, linux distros and the convoluted mess web of config files  ....

Re: [SOLVED] Update made system use llvmpipe instead of Nvidia

a) because in doubt your xorg.conf overrides the outputclass match
b) because your early KMS efforts went wong: "lsinitcpio /boot/initramfs-linux.img | grep nvidia"?

a) even without the xorg.conf file, I still have software accel. I just have an incorrect resolution.

b)

$ lsinitcpio /boot/initramfs-linux.img | grep nvidia

Re: [SOLVED] Update made system use llvmpipe instead of Nvidia

The nvidia modules are not in the initramfs.
How exactly did you "try" that?

Re: [SOLVED] Update made system use llvmpipe instead of Nvidia

I only tested the modesetting kernel argument. My bad. I figured that if I never needed nvidia modules in the initramfs before, and everything worked, I shouldn't need them now. Silly me.

Thanks for pushing me into putting the nvidia modules into the initramfs. Now everything works properly. No more Files section in xorg.conf. Also, the kernel argument is not needed in my case (modesetting = 1).


So for everyone that will hit a snag like this one, put your nvidia modules into the initramfs, like it said here .
DO NOT forget the pacman hook.



Thank you to everyone that gave up part of their time in order to help others.
Virtual beers on me!

I have encountered the same problem as the OP and solved it by adding the nvidia modules to initramfs.
However, I have question: is the pacman hook really needed?

Every time I upgrade with "pacman -Syu" the files "/boot/initramfs-linux.img" and "/boot/initramfs-linux-fallback.img" are regenerated. These same files are recreated also when using "mkinitcpio -P" from the above mentioned pacman hook.  Am I missing something?

Re: [SOLVED] Update made system use llvmpipe instead of Nvidia

No, he was just updating the mkinitcpio.conf and didn't re-create the initramfs (which is explicitly required if you merely want to account for "vim /etc/mkinitcpio.conf")
