Working xorg.conf for nouveau driver for a NVIDIA graphics card?
« on: February 02, 2020, 11:16:19 am »
I am playing around with an "old" NVIDIA GTX 1050 Ti in my Blackbird system with Fedora 31 but I do not manage to create a working xorg.conf.

RPMFusion does not contain the proprietary NVIDIA drivers since the ppc64le architecture seems not to be supported by NVIDIA for this GPU.

nouveau is available and I assume this driver should work on Power9

Code: [Select]
Xorg -config /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/21-gpu-driver.confto test my xorg.conf at the console complains with messages like

Code: [Select]
Fatal server error:
(EE) no screens found(EE)
(EE) Server terminated with error (1).

so it would be helpful if you could provide a working xorg.conf that uses nouveau so that I can focus on getting AST2500 out of the way (from my display)...

The Xorg.conf file is very precise and as soon as you make a mistake, it doesn't work and it no longer loads the GUI until you delete it and report the situation as it was originally. I also had a bit of trouble putting the right syntax, then luckily the MPC user gave me a tip and I did it ... The examples that are reported on Wiki in general are on AMD GPUs, if not answers no one tries to ask Raptor support directly, only they can give you a hand in this sense. Unfortunately, Nvidia GPUs have proprietary drivers and are used very little by the Power community, we use almost all AMD so it is not easy to find information on using NVdia on Power ... Raptor runs the 2070 on Power, see if they know something about the your card ...
