Description Guy Ratcliffe 2005-07-19 05:19:35 UTC
When using attributes from the commandline, nvidia-settings only works with
attributes that are part of earlier releases.  Newer attributes (such as
GPUOverclockingState) do not function.  Attributes work correctly from the GUI.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.emerge nvidia-settings with ~x86 flag
2.nvidia-settings -a GPUOverclockingState=1

Actual Results:  
nvidia-settings -a GPUOverclockingState=1

ERROR: Error parsing assignment 'GPUOverclockingState=1' (Unrecognized
attribute name).

Expected Results:  
nvidia-settings -a GPUOverclockingState=1
Attribute 'GPUOverclockingState' (machinename:0.0) assigned value 1.

I removed the Gentoo ebuilds from the machine and ran the direct build from
Nvidia.  This builds both the kernel module and the nvidia-settings utility and
works correctly.

Just tried something else, copied the binary out of the (
--extract) and into /usr/bin and it works fine so definatly something wrong with
the ebuild and / or compile.

My tree doesn't have nvidia-settings-1.0.7667 I just crazy?
Comment 3 Guy Ratcliffe 2005-07-20 02:29:37 UTC
It has changed name to nvidia-settings-1.0.20050525.ebuild, why I don't know as
these should relate to the display driver.  Also, after your comment Joshua, I
realised that this ebuild is for "1.0.7664" so should relate to the 7664 build
of the drivers BUT this functionality was available in those drivers as well.  I
have tried the 7664 driver from Nvidia and that works fine, so we still have an
issue with the build.
Comment 4 Joshua Baergen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-07-20 18:25:05 UTC
So it would appear the problem is that there is no ebuild for nvidia-settings
7667. It would be appreciated if you tried modifying the 7664 ebuild to work
with 7667 and post it here.  It's probably a driver mis-match causing the problem.
Comment 5 Xake 2006-10-15 12:56:56 UTC
So is this still a problem?
Comment 6 Jakub Moc (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-10-15 13:12:58 UTC
Irrelevant bug, closing.
