@smirky: Well, the latest blob also deleted support for old gpus. I may need to split this package at some point. In the mean time, I do not think any gpu on which we support video decoding is left out.

Also, looking at the extraction script, the only blob more recent supported is the 340.32 which does not provide more firmwares. Updating for the sake of updating would be stupid IMO.

I will update this package when someone adds support for the maxwell gpu or if someones proves me that updating the blob requirement provided the firmwares for his card and was enough to get VDPAU rolling :)

Hello,

Shouldn't this package be updated to extract the firmware from the latest drivers? I see this is an old NVIDIA package which is extracting from.

To answer my previous question, which will get solved soon:

Oh, I'll need to update the description of the package, as the maxwell firmwares are not found by the script...

@ArthurBorsboom: Sorry, I completely forgot to answer you. This package will not help you get those firmwares. However, you may use this version of Nouveau that implement an open firmware for your GM107: http://cgit.freedesktop.org/~darktama/nouveau

@jose1711: NVIDIA shuffled a lot of things around and newer versions of the driver do not allow us to get as many firmwares. As there is not support for video decoding on maxwell, then there is no point in updating this package AFAIK. Ilia Mirkin would know better, I'll need to check.

isn't this just a matter or pointing to a more recent nvidia *run (binary driver) file?

Hi MuPuf,

Any news on getting new firmwares into this package?
My GTX 750 Ti needs the following (currently) missing firmwares.

Direct firmware load for nouveau/nv117_fuc409c failed with error -2
Direct firmware load for nouveau/fuc409c failed with error -2

@kiodo1981: Hey, we are using the 32 bits version because both the 32 and 64 bits version have the same firmwares. However, the 32 bit version is much smaller, hence why we are using it!

As for the 340.32 support, I already answered that right under your comment. I've asked the developer behind extract_firmware.py to see if he found out how the kernel firmwares are stored on not.

Again, if you have any bug with the current version of the firmwares, please let us know on #nouveau. Otherwise, there is no point in "upgrading" since the firmwares are likely exactly the same ;)

extract_firmware.py add 340.32 FW
Please update.

64bit version?

MuPuF commented on 2014-08-25 21:35

I unflagged the package because using a newer version of the blob would produce less firmwares since we don't know yet how to extract PGRAPH's fw from the new blob!

If anyone of you have a bug with the current version of the blob, please inform us on #nouveau!
