vbios XFX Nvidia 7300 GS 256MB

I already talked in IRC #nouveau before reporting this bug.


Problem: Card connected to an 24" 1920x1200 monitor via DVI. Everything is working fine with windows and DVI at full resolution.
When booting any Linux live, i get a black screen directly when KMS starts. BIOS post and VESA works fine with DVI.
To get a picture with nouveau, i had to connect the same monitor via VGA cable to the nvidia card. I get then an 1024x768 resolution.

After boot with VGA i remove the VGA cable and connect DVI to get some logfiles for debugging.
for p in /sys/class/drm/*/status; do con=${p%/status}; echo -n "${con#*/card?-}: "; cat $p; done

reports in VGA-mode:
DVI-I-1: disconnected
TV-1: connected
TV-2: disconnected

reports in DVI-mode (no working screen):
DVI-I-1: disconnected
TV-1: disconnected
TV-2: disconnected

The xorg log:

the dmesg:

The vbios from /sys/kernel/debug/dri/0/ :
(also attached to this bug as attachment)

The IRC log with some additional information that are maybe usefull:

Would be nice to get able to use this computer with nouveau and DVI with normal resolution.
Comment 1 Ilia Mirkin 2015-03-13 15:44:31 UTC
Please provide dmesg from a boot with

nouveau.debug=trace drm.debug=0xe

Both with VGA plugged in, and with DVI plugged in. Also, please attach files to the bug, not pastebins (which expire). Include the full dmesg, not a grep for 'nouveau'. There are other things that are interesting in there.
Comment 2 Emil Velikov 2015-03-16 16:20:55 UTC
A small note - there has been other XFX cards with messed up DCB table.
See the current kernel [1] for examples
