[WORKAROUND] nouveau: Unknown chipset: NV124

Greetings,

Please pardon me if this is not the correct forum for Nouveau questions.  I couldn't find one which seemed more appropriate.

I'm trying to use Nouveau but X won't start up.  Some lines from my Xorg.0.log file:

The line for my video card from `lspci`:

01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation GM204 [GeForce GTX 970] (rev a1)

Google doesn't know what to do with "Unknown chipset: NV124".  Shall I just abandon Nouveau and go with Nvidia's drivers?

Re: [WORKAROUND] nouveau: Unknown chipset: NV124

Yes use nvidia, nouveau doesn't support Maxwell chips yet (because Nvidia hasn't provided any firmware binaries yet), for next time please use [ code ] tags to post logfiles/command output, makes everything more readable.

Okay thanks.  I'll switch to Nvidia's drivers.

Thanks for the tip, WorMzy.  Is it "solved" if I abandon the project for another?

Re: [WORKAROUND] nouveau: Unknown chipset: NV124

Depends. wink

I interpret the problem to be that nouveau doesn't support Maxwell chips, and the solution is to use the nvidia driver instead (at least until Maxwell support is added to nouveau).

If you don't want to use the nvidia driver, then the problem is not solved. It's up to you to decide whether your topic is solved or not.

Re: [WORKAROUND] nouveau: Unknown chipset: NV124

Got it working with the distribution Nvidia (https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/NVIDIA) package.

# pacman -S nvidia nvidia-libgl.

After that, I got my dual-head setup working by running:

# nvida-settings

and messing around in there until it worked.  After the second monitor came on for Xorg, I configured KDE's settings to extend the desktop onto the second monitor and all was well.
