Re: HOW-TO make dual-boot obsolete using XEN VGA passthrough

Guys got a question for you. How can you prevent a game from detecting that it is running in a VM? I've been playing this online game and it runs great on KVM/XEN well until they installed an anti cheat system called xigncode3. Now every time I try to run it, is says tha app cannot be run in a virtu...

Re: HOW-TO make dual-boot obsolete using XEN VGA passthrough

powerhouse, maybe you can help me out. Doing vga pass through to a linux guest ( not windows ). All is well until I shutdown the guest and boot it again for the second time. The whole system hangs. I've encountered this with windows as guest and the fix was to eject the video card upon shutdown, usi...

Re: HOW-TO make dual-boot obsolete using XEN VGA passthrough

Hello powerhouse, been a long time since I posted here. Looks like you delving into kvm as well. :) Just a tip for those who are running two descrete video cards, e.g. nvdia for host and radeon for guest. It would be a lot easier if you compile the kernel and remove all drivers for the vid card you'...

Re: HOW-TO make dual-boot obsolete using XEN VGA passthrough

... Just for clarification: You had to build the kernel and Xen 4.1.4 from source? And you are using the xm toolstack? Are you willing to share detailed information on how you got it working with UEFI, incl. kernel and Xen compilation steps? Perhaps in a separate how-to? I would then link to it fro...

Re: HOW-TO make dual-boot obsolete using XEN VGA passthrough

...I wish I could blacklist the radeon driver but I need it for my Dom0. At least I don't have kernel panics at this point. Haven't touched pciback yet tho. Good to know about the CCC delayed install. In your earlier post I thought you meant the CCC in Mint was causing issues. Figures it'd be windo...

Re: HOW-TO make dual-boot obsolete using XEN VGA passthrough

Grats man on getting it working. :) Good to know about the xen parameters. I had read the memory min/max thing was a best practice due to the memory ballooning feature of Xen, and a lot of the xen wiki documents only show the Grub1 format. I wish I could blacklist the radeon driver but I need it fo...

Re: HOW-TO make dual-boot obsolete using XEN VGA passthrough

Just got it working now. Still using your guide with the following difference. - Used linux mint 14 kde edition ( just want to try a different DE) :D - There is a bug in the current xen kernel (the one ubuntu is using) wherein xen only gets 512MB under UEFI no matter what amount of ram you pass at ...

Re: HOW-TO make dual-boot obsolete using XEN VGA passthrough

@earlboy: Did you manage to get UEFI work with Xen? I believe saw UEFI support somewhere on a release note (or was it the roadmap?). I for myself try to fight the temptations and stick to the principle: Don't touch a running system. If you made it work, care to share your steps to it? Ah, and also ...

Re: HOW-TO make dual-boot obsolete using XEN VGA passthrough

A further note: I had another quick idea. If you could remotely change the monitors input-source when using Synergy and moving the mouse to the other OS's screen, then you wouldn't need to press a button at all. It seems like something like that is doable. See this thread (5th posting): http://sour...
