## About this page
<small>Hello there. You would like to help Nouveau and maybe even become a developer. You have hung out on #nouveau IRC channel at Freenode, but you might not understand much about what the people are saying there. Maybe you do not have much of a background with graphics systems, but you would like to learn things before trying to jump in.

This page is for you. Here are gathered links to other documents in a comprehensible order. You can start reading the first ones to get a bigger picture of what the graphics world looks like. Going further down the list, the documents get more demanding, technical and specific. We recommend maintaining the rough order while reading through these.

**Do not report build or compilation failures.** Those failures are either your own mistake, or they will be noticed soon anyway. You should follow [[TroubleShooting|TroubleShooting]], most likely you have an outdated libdrm or kernel.
The developers are not interested to help you with installing the 3D drivers. Your fellow users on the other hand might. Notice, that the irc-channel #nouveau in Freenode is supposed to be a developer channel, so asking there will annoy people.

If you get a misrendered image using a Gallium3D-based driver, compare it with the software rasterizers (`softpipe` and `llvmpipe` drivers). If the software rasterizer has the same problem, do not submit a bug against Nouveau, because it is a generic Gallium3D bug.

Mmiotrace is a toolbox for tracing memory mapped I/O access within the kernel. It can be used to record how a driver module uses MMIO reads and writes, for reverse engineering and debugging. For reverse engineering, you will need to have the proprietary driver, but it can also be useful for debugging the nouveau driver itself.
The supported architectures are x86 and x86_64, they both seem to be pretty stable. If you need help, you can try to ask on _#nouveau_ IRC channel on Freenode.

Developers and analysts might be interested in [[MmioTraceDeveloper]] and old debugging notes in [[MmioTraceDebugging]]. The user space tools (for analysts) are mentioned in [[MmioTraceDeveloper]].
