Question

this tv setup is screwy.  somethings not happening correctly.

 

dmesg chunk

[233070.695477] [drm:drm_edid_block_valid [drm]] *ERROR* EDID checksum is invalid, remainder is 131
[233070.695483] Raw EDID:

[233070.696538] nouveau E[     DRM] DDC responded, but no EDID for DVI-I-1

this is orbiting around xrandr trying to get the tv settings and getting incorrect or incomplete information.  i tried having xfce4 configure new monitors as they come along plug & unplug but that's also failing.

 

xrandr --verbose -q --display :0

 

between when the tv is working and not only differ in working having *current....  there are a few very messy ways to fix this that are heavy handed.

 

for now, when the tv goes off ill ctrl + alt + f1 turn tv on, then ctrl + alt + f8 or f7 to go back to X....  (yeah this really works)

 

ill try out lightdm to see if my .xinitrc is terrible.
