eGPU appears, but doesn't want to be a display

I am running a Lenovo P72 (it has a Quadro P2000) with Fedora 32 (5.7.11-200.fc32.x86_64)

The unit DOES appear and is authorized in the Thunderbolt Section of the Settings.

My config looks like this:

P72 — (Thunderbolt Cable*) — Gigabyte RTX 2080 Ti eGPU — (HDMI) ---- External Display

The Gigabyte lights up nicely (meaning it’s connected/recognized), but no display.

I installed the NVIDIA drivers (450.57 using the If Not True then False method.

Maybe I should have used RPM fusion?

The Thunderbolt Cables are OWCs, not cheapies.

Sadly, it works like a dream on WINDBLOWS, but I hate WINDBLOWS.

I’ve searched the web and I am reading people using Fedora with these eGPU and they magically work!

Lucky them!

Please advise.

@dmelcer9 Welcome to AskFedora. Feel free to go through the Code of Conduct and Documentation.

This might help you in your usecase. It uses the RPM Fusion repositories for the proprietary NVIDIA drivers.

@t0xic0der Thank you for the reply. I downloaded and ran with --rpmadd and then --driver options, but nothing happened:

The eGPU does work with nouveau, but I was experiencing quite severe performance issues with that driver.

You already seem to have the proprietary drivers from RPM Fusion. It would not reinstall stuff that’s already installed.

Yes, it eliminates “no driver being installed” or “driver not installed correctly” as the reason for the graphics card not working, but I still have the problem with the card not connecting when the proprietary driver is installed.

Could you please give the outputs of lspci | grep VGA and lspci | grep 3D?

Here is the output (the 970 is in the eGPU box):

 ~  lspci | grep -E "NVIDIA|VGA|3D"                                Wed 19 Aug 2020 10:10:46 AM EDT

If I re-run without the cable connected, I get:

Yours is an Optimus configuration. I spotted a mobile GPU here. You would want to read this https://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/quick-docs/how-to-set-nvidia-as-primary-gpu-on-optimus-based-laptops/.

The mobile GPU works fine, the issue is that I can’t connect to an external graphics card (eGPU box connected with a thunderbolt 3 cable).

I followed the guide you linked just to be sure, but it didn’t solve the issue- the internal (mobile) GPU is exclusively used, while the external (desktop) card is barely detected and isn’t used.

@kwizart might be able to help you with that. He is the NVIDIA guy around here. :joy:

I have no experience with eGPU (external GPU connected via thunderbold wire).
Attaching the archive created by nvidia-bug-report.sh would be nice.

Also few issue spotted in the quick-docs (overall good)

  • Project is written either rpmfusion or RPM Fusion.
  • There is no point to force dracut gene or akmod --force, please drop that section.
  • There is no point to install a more or less weird list of packages. If you are using a graphical doc, please show the capture to enable the driver from the Software application instead.
  • In the not so distant future, I hope we will manage to prevent to terminate akmods before it finished to compile. So there is no need to monitor that the compilation ended. (but it’s best to wait for it anyway over force shutdown the laptop).

Thanks for the mention.

Here’s the output of the script: https://gist.github.com/dmelcer9/2760b0168c2096698e03b908383a9b5b

It seems like the 970 is definitely being detected by something, but the it doesn’t show up in either nvidia-smi or the “X Server Settings” window.

Thanks for taking a look at this. Should I post the question to a more nvidia-centric forum?

If you want the eGPU to be a display, you might need to enabled the appropriate option:
http://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Linux-x86_64/450.66/README/egpu.html

We could set a non-default option in the xorg.conf template to more advertise the feature. But we won’t enable it by default as many end-users might prefer not to use the eGPU for display. (but for CUDA short lived and dedicated tasks).

Using primaryGPU shoulnd’t be used by default (also in the fedora docs) for the same reason. Optimus users doesn’t want to run all their tasks to the dGPU (nvidia), but instead use the iGPU(intel) by default for most tasks and few dedicated tasks on the dGPU.
(The only reason to enable PrimaryGPU even if not using nvidia specifially is when the external Display is wired via the dGPU instead of the iGPU.)

In your case, you may have to enable PrimaryGPU by default, but then it’s unknown how it will behave if you unplug the eGPU. (display may break).

Please report.
You may also ask on devtalk.nvidia.com that is dedicated for nvidia (and where nvidia maintainers reads for reports).

Hope this helps.

Thanks for the link. I added that option to my conf, but nothing happened. The chapter mentioned that I should then create a device section, so I added them as shown below.

If the first Device section is uncommented (regardless of if the second Device section is), the system hangs on the splash screen (Alt-F2 doesn’t work, but SysRq does). If only the second Device section is uncommented, xserver fails to start (Alt-F2 works).

Here is my xorg.conf.d/nvidia.conf:

(Note that Device1’s BusID corresponds to the internal dGPU, while Device2 is the eGPU)

Section "OutputClass"
	Identifier "nvidia"
	MatchDriver "nvidia-drm"
	Driver "nvidia"
	Option "AllowEmptyInitialConfiguration"
	Option "SLI" "Auto"
	Option "BaseMosaic" "on"
	Option "AllowExternalGpus" "yes"
	Option "PrimaryGPU" "yes"
EndSection

Section "ServerLayout"
	Identifier "layout"
	Option "AllowNVIDIAGPUScreens"
	Option "AllowExternalGpus" "yes"
	Option "PrimaryGPU" "yes"
EndSection

# Section "Device"
#	Identifier "Device1"
#	Driver "nvidia"
#	VendorName "NVIDIA Corporation"
#	BusID "PCI:1:0:0"
#EndSection

# Section "Device"
#	Identifier "Device2"
#	Driver "nvidia"
#	VendorName "NVIDIA Corporation"
#	BusID  "PCI:11:0:0"
# EndSection

I have added the correction task to my to-do list. Would surely make it happen once I make time.

Thanks for listing them. :smile:
