1.4, nouveau and mesa issues


Recommended Posts

I'm testing the new 1.4. My test system is an older laptop, MSI GX720, core2duo P8400 with a nvidia GT9600M video card. I started with a blank disk, installed the minimal 1.3 system from the latest stage3 (core2 subarch) and from there proceeded to upgrade to 1.4 as per instructions.

I tried the nvidia driver first (gfxcard_nvidia) but it seems that there's no driver compatible with my video card. So then I switched to gfxcard_nouveau and I get an error emerging mesa-19.1.3. Everything else emerges fine but the last step, mesa, fails.

I'm attaching an archive of logs.


I think the issue is related to the following in build.log:

OK, thanks for testing and reporting this. I should be able to fix it. If you have some time, can you report an official bug on bugs.funtoo.org and then I will reference it in the commit that fixes this issue. Thanks.

Hmm, with the new fix in place mesa emerges successfully, however I still can't start a X server. The Xorg log says it can't find module "nouveau".


Nouveau is in fact compiled and installed in the usual kernel module tree, and loaded (it's listed with lsmod).
