Override DPCD information
 
1 Attachment(s)
Greetings,

I'm trying to solve a problem where a Quadro NVS 450 cannot determine the proper DisplayPort link rate, lane count, and pixel clock speed, when the monitors are turned off. Is there a way to override these parameters in the xorg.conf?

Here is a snippet from the Xorg log when the monitors are off:

Code:

(WW) Oct 11 15:39:28 NVIDIA(GPU-0): DFP-2: Failed to read DPCD
(II) Oct 11 15:39:28 NVIDIA(GPU-0):    Maximum link rate:  1.62 Gbps per lane
(II) Oct 11 15:39:28 NVIDIA(GPU-0):    Maximum lane count:  1
(II) Oct 11 15:39:28 NVIDIA(GPU-0):    Maximum pixel clock: 71.287 MHz


Here is a snippet from the Xorg log when the monitors are on:

Code:

(II) Oct 11 15:52:53 NVIDIA(GPU-0): DFP-2: DisplayPort revision 1.1
(II) Oct 11 15:52:53 NVIDIA(GPU-0):    Maximum link rate:  2.70 Gbps per lane
(II) Oct 11 15:52:53 NVIDIA(GPU-0):    Maximum lane count:  4
(II) Oct 11 15:52:53 NVIDIA(GPU-0):    Maximum pixel clock: 475.248 MHz


Thank you.


PS I'm receiving the following error while trying to upload a nvidia-bug-report:

I'm afraid not, sorry. Is there any way you can make sure the monitors are on before trying to start X?

Re: Override DPCD information
 
Actually, I take that back: there's a "NoDisplayPortBandwidthCheck" mode validation override. That completely ignores DisplayPort bandwidth constraints, but since your monitors negotiate the maximum bandwidth when they're on anyway, that shouldn't matter.

See ftp://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Li...ModeValidation

Thanks for the information. I am using the "NoDisplayPortBandwidthCheck" mode validation override, but it computes the values way too low. Do you happen to know how those values are calculated or are they hardcoded somewhere?

Re: Override DPCD information
 
I'm not sure what you mean. NoDisplayPortBandwidthCheck prevents the driver from considering the DisplayPort bandwidth when validating modes, so it should let through modes that would be valid otherwise and are only rejected because the DP device isn't responding.
