Re: Xen Error

Hi, I wanted to report that the quadro 2000 is working perfectly using LM13, kernel 3.2.0-23 and Xen 4.1.2. I will try with a newer version at some point but it certainly looks like this was a problem with the amd cards not playing nice with Xen. That's good news! I agree that the AMD 6450 is quite...

Re: Xen Error

Hardware of course matters. IIRC you have PCI ID 03:00.0 for your AMD 6450. You could try to change the position of your 6450 and use a different PCI slot. One thing that comes to mind is that some boards use one PCI bridge to handle multiple PCIe slots, which might create problems. I would try thi...

Re: Xen Error

Hey powerhouse. I really appreciate your help, but unfortunately I just cannot get it to work despite doing everything exactly the same as you. I'm also on LM13, xm toolstack, kernel 3.2.0-23-generic and Xen 4.1.2. It just doesn't work, totally frustrating. Before I give up completely, what version ...

Re: Xen Error

Thanks, I tried the same config but I still get error 22 passing through my R7 250. I'll reboot and try again with the 6450.

EDIT: Nope, it doesn't work with the 6450 either :( I guess I'm stuck waiting for the quadro 2000.

Re: Xen Error

For xl to work you need to change the device model in the win.cfg file. Look through the recent posts in the how-to, there should be instructions. If not check the xen wiki pages. You need to select legacy. I see, I changed it as per your recommendation. I see get the error that the device is not r...

Re: Xen Error

Here some thread on error 22 and the AMD 6450: http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/xen/users/277870. Gordon was the one who reported the error 22 bug that was introduced last year with a security update. I haven't read the entire thread but there seem to be some useful clues. Thanks, I'll have a ...

Re: Xen Error

Hi, so I applied the patch and tried to build the new xen. I'm not sure if I did it correctly or not though and if the new xen has installed. I still get error 22. Here is the build log. sudo make -j9 world http://pastebin.com/13qvpkJx As you can see it errors out. sudo make -j9 install http://paste...

Re: Xen Error

Thanks powerhouse! That helps, its good to know that I'm not the only one with this problem. I'm sort of tempted to just buy a NVIDIA card and be done with it...kind of a waste of money though. I'm pretty short on time also, I'm planning on having another go at it over the weekend also. I found that...

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

Thanks powerhouse for the reply! 1 and 2. I definitely downgraded all the Xen packages to 4.1.2. I also locked the version like you suggested. 3. I am using xm toolstack and my win.cfg contains device_model = '/usr/lib/xen-default/bin/qemu-dm' I made a post in the software section, http://forums.lin...

Hi, I'm trying to setup Xen and I'm having some problems with passthrough of my graphics card. I'm hoping there are some people here who might have had similar problems and or know what to do next.

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

@bonzi: I ran into the same error 22 issue recently when I tested my AMD 7770 for VGA passthrough. I think the best solution - for now- is to install Linux Mint 13 (it's a long term release that is supported until 2017 :) ), and the downgrade Xen to version 4.1.2 (I believe). See my old Linux Mint ...
