Description Vincent Fortier 2005-06-20 18:49:02 UTC
Distribution: fedora core 3
Hardware Environment: dell latitude d800 (nvidia go 5650)
Software Environment: xor 6.8.2 + kde 3.4.1 (kde for redhat project)
Problem Description:
At boot time the screen appears moved to the mid right portion of the actual
video pannel making the end of the line appears at the left edge...  It simply
looks like moved half way to the right

Steps to reproduce:
compile a vanilla 2.6.12 with only thoses fb options:
CONFIG_FB=y
CONFIG_FB_CFB_FILLRECT=y
CONFIG_FB_CFB_COPYAREA=y
CONFIG_FB_CFB_IMAGEBLIT=y
CONFIG_FB_SOFT_CURSOR=y
CONFIG_FB_MODE_HELPERS=y
CONFIG_FB_TILEBLITTING=y
CONFIG_VIDEO_SELECT=y
CONFIG_FB_NVIDIA=y

Picture of the "feature" in action...

Here is what it looks like... note that the blurry effect comes from my
camera..  Although text does really appear repeated like "Bo	 Booting Fedora
Core" instead of simply "Booting Fedora Core" ... but the overlayed effect
probably come from my hand shaking.. :)

Can you try using fbset to change the resolution and color depth?

Please retest 2.6.13-rc4, thanks.

If it's still failing it would be useful to know the latest
kernel version which worked OK.
Comment 5 Vincent Fortier 2005-07-30 06:15:55 UTC
I just gave it a try to 2.6.13-rc4.. Here is the dmesg output .. at least to 
most relevant section of it: 
=========================================================== 
nvidiafb: nVidia device/chipset 10DE031B 
nvidiafb: CRTC0 not found 
nvidiafb: CRTC1 not found 
nvidiafb: CRTC 0 is currently programmed for DFP

================================================================ 
 
While giving it a try, it worked when my laptop was docked and the display 
being redirected to my standard 19 inch CRT.  Althought it does the same thing 
on the WUXGA flat pannel.  The dmesg log seems to have capture the right 
resolution but same final output.

Comment 7 Antonino Daplas 2005-07-30 14:59:03 UTC
I'm surprised that your display corrected with that command. Can you
submit the output of /sys/class/graphics/fb0/modes?

Anyhow, try to add this option to your boot line:

video=nvidiafb:1600x1200@60

/* we don't have 1900x1200 yet in the mode database, so let's try that one */

Then apply this one.
Comment 10 Antonino Daplas 2005-07-30 18:26:59 UTC
I'm guessing that you have a timings problem.  Your panel size is set at
1920x1200, but nvidiafb chooses 640x480. This usually indicates that the
edid (contains display information) was not probed via I2C/DDC. The driver may
have problems scaling up to this resolution.

If this is the case, let's try to use the one that was probed via the Video
BIOS. This is usually successful, but is only useful for the first display
connected to the device.

Hopefully, with the proper edid, your machine will boot with a working display,
even without the boot option.  

Oh, and to get verbose output in dmesg, open drivers/video/fbmon.c and change
this line:

#undef DEBUG

to

#define DEBUG

Fix stupid bugs of previous 2 patches

My fault, I forgot the extra underscores in __i386__. And extra points against
me
for not testing it fully. I think this should fix it for you, assuming you have
a
DDC capable monitor and I'm pretty sure it is.

Apply this patch on top of the previous 2. Boot with and without options.

Thanks for following up on this.

Test for valid EDID

I'm surprised it crashed.  Can you apply this patch?  It's just a test patch
that checks for validity of the EDID.  If your machine still crashes, then
there's something wrong with the way the edid was acquired from the BIOS. If
your machine
continues to boot, post your dmesg.

I don't have an nvidia card anymore, except for an old riva128, so I can't do
the
test myself.

Copy contents of firmware edid to kmalloc'ed memory

Ok, I was able to duplicate the crash with another driver. The crash was caused
by nvidiafb trying to kfree the firmware edid, which is not freeable.  So apply
this 5th patch, and forget about the 4th.  

Just to clarify, apply these patches in order:

patch: Get edid from video BIOS
Fallback to BIOS edid if DDC probing failed
Fix stupid bugs of previous 2 patches
Copy contents of firmware edid to kmalloc'ed memory

Please post your dmesg.  I don't think your box will crash again :-) (fingers
crossed).

Comment 19 Antonino Daplas 2005-08-01 08:10:53 UTC
Hmm, interesting. It seems that even the Video BIOS cannot get the EDID (DDC
incapable display?)

Just to confirm, can you post /var/log/XFree86.0.log, just the parts that
pertain to DDC/EDID.  X uses the DDC interface to get the EDID.

Also, can you download and compile read-edid from:

http://john.fremlin.de/programs/linux/read-edid/read-edid-1.4.1.tar.gz

read_edid grabs the edid via the Video BIOS. Just run:

get_edid | parse_edid.

Finally, as a last resort, if your display really has no usable edid, switch to
X, then dump the timings.  I will add these timings to the default mode database
of the kernel so you can boot at 1920x1200. (Of course I can always make one
using GTF, but I would rather have a working version)

Thanks for all the help.  I really appreciate it.

Add 1920x1200 to mode database

Adds 1920x1200@60 to default mode database.  To use, boot with
video=nvidiafb:1920x1200@60
Comment 25 Antonino Daplas 2005-08-01 15:44:23 UTC
Ok, both X and read-edid failed to do DDC transfers.  It is safe to assume that
your monitor does not have an EDID block, which is unusual because your panel
supports a video mode that is not a standard (16/10 aspect).

Anyway, try this patch.  I added 1920x1200 to the mode database using the GTF.
I'll close this bug if you can boot to a working 1920x1200.
Comment 26 Vincent Fortier 2005-08-01 16:46:58 UTC
Do I apply the patch on a fresh 2.6.12 or onto a 2.6.13-rc4 with the four other 
patches? 
 
thnx. 
Comment 27 Antonino Daplas 2005-08-01 17:05:16 UTC
No need for a fresh tree.  But you can apply it to a fresh tree without problems.
I'm still submitting the 1st 4 patches, as it will be useful for those with
displays which can do DDC transfers.
Comment 28 Antonino Daplas 2005-08-01 17:32:02 UTC
BTW, since 2.6.10, there's another way to access display characteristics.  If
you enabled CONFIG_ACPI and CONFIG_ACPI_VIDEO, there should be an edid (?) entry
in /proc/acpi/video (I only have an empty /proc/acpi/video). It's possible to
get the edid from there.  It's also possible that your laptop is already
dropping BIOS/DDC support and is using the acpi instead. If you do, try to cat
and post your edid block, and maybe I'll find a way to access this within the
framebuffer framework.
Comment 29 Vincent Fortier 2005-08-05 05:47:59 UTC
Was away for a few days.. but I had the time to test the latest patch (add   
1920x1200 to mode database) and 2 things occured:  1- By default it did not   
boot into 1920x1200... it booted like usual meaning did the bug.  2- Adding   
video=nvidiafb:1920x1200@60 worked... it booted just fine.   
   
And here is the info about /proc/acpi/video .. hope I got the good info:   
[root@gustav LCD]# cat brightness   
<not supported>   
[root@gustav LCD]# cat EDID   
<not supported>   
[root@gustav LCD]# cat info   
device_id:    0x0110   
type:         UNKNOWN   
known by bios: no   
[root@gustav LCD]# cat state   
state:     0x0d   
query:     0x00   
[root@gustav LCD]# pwd   
/proc/acpi/video/VID/LCD   
   
So, the bug is still there.. I
Comment 30 Antonino Daplas 2005-08-07 02:12:16 UTC
This is now acceptable behavior.  If without the EDID block, nvidiafb will try
to boot at 640x480.  Unfortunately, we weren't able to get the EDID from your
display, (whether from DDC/I2C, Video BIOS, or ACPI).  So, to boot to an
acceptable display 1920x1200, you just have to add this mode in your boot options.

There is no other way.  I'll close this bug, and thanks for all the help.

IT is still wrong.. here is the boot without any options.

Here is, with all the patches, the same result.

Here is the result by adding video=nvidiafb:1920x1200@60
Comment 33 Antonino Daplas 2005-08-07 06:02:37 UTC
Actually, I'm contented with nvidiafb's behavior.  It is difficult to find a
startup mode that will work for all displays out there without knowing a single
thing about the characteristics of the display.  Sometimes the default mode
works, sometimes not.  That is why the EDID is so important, and that is why fb
drivers support specifying the startup modes in the kernel command line.

Anyway, try this patch again.  It basically checks if a flatpanel monitor is
attached, and if there is, base the initial mode from the flatpanel width and
height. Patch can be applied on top of all the other patches or on a clean tree.
