I’m trying to enable the GuC/HuC firmware loading. I just added:
options i915 enable_guc=3 enable_fbc=1
/etc/modprobe.d/i915.conf, however, after rebooting the firmware is still not loaded:
# cat /sys/kernel/debug/dri/0/i915_guc_load_status GuC firmware: i915/bxt_guc_ver9_29.bin status: fetch NONE, load NONE
What am I doing wrong?
Secondly, I know issues on suspend/resume are present on some systems. In case it works fine on my PC, does enabling this firmware have some concrete benefits for everyday usage?
Thank you in advance!
