Can't load a custom edid.bin

All issues related to Garuda Linux and its assistance

In order to my display work correctly, displayin RGB colors I need to load a custom edid.bin,
on every other distro all I need to do is create a folder and move the file there, then add to the default grub cmd linux line the following command: drm_kms_helper.edid_firmware=edid/edid.bin.

it works flawlessly on any other distro, or base such as arch or debian, but on garuda the edid simply seems not be loaded, why? what do I need to do for it to work?

yeah, the size of my edid.bin is correct, and the second one is related to nvidia issues, not my case

Exactly! And that's the problem.
You have to post your system info, so we know how to give the proper advice. :man_shrugging:

inxi -Fxxxza
mhwd -li
bash -c 'for Xconf in $(ls /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/*.conf | grep -v keyboard); do echo -e "\n" $Xconf ; cat $Xconf ; done'
bash -c 'for Xlog in $(ls /var/log/Xorg.?.log); do echo -e "\n" $Xlog ; grep -E "(EE)|(WW)|failed|Time" $Xlog ; done'

We may (or not) need more... :wink:

Is this folder/file /lib/firmware/edid/edid.bin ?

This has changed for newer kernels.

tried that, still doesn't load

Really? Oh, where am I pulled in... :sob:

That was the file path/name, not a command.
Open the file in kate, select all and copy.
Go to the posted link (bin.garuda.........) and paste contents. After Save/Apply, post the address/link of the page.

I tried using the line that you mentioned instead of the one that I was using, since you said that on newer kernels it has changed, still didn't get the edid to load

drm.edid_firmware=edid/edid.bin

instead of:

drm_kms_helper.edid_firmware=edid/edid.bin

here is the grub config file

https://bin.garudalinux.org/?57269f15be6cdd10#HEPgvcvyWGyuDUuyAzVD8LgktkRB4e9tAqaiEnL6zBJS

and here is the edid.bin

By the way @rioxrenato , I hope you understand why certain things can't be solved in telegram as well.

I understand that, but I asked there first to see if there was an easy fix

There is NO clue that your EDID is NOT loaded.

Maybe it's time to use a lot of words (iiiiffff possible...) to describe what do you mean EDID is not loaded.

It looks like an xyproblem.
