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

p.s. I solved my need for vga arbitration. It was as simple as switching from uefi mode to uefi with csm in my bios. The hardware issue I had went away. Basically, my vga 15 pin port was disabled when using nomodeset on boot. No i915 driver...no vga port signal. Switching to uefi with csm kept the v...

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

Hey Powerhouse.

I have built a new PC, full amd threadripper 2nd gen.
My video card is the Radeon Duo Pro R9 Fury X nano series.
It has two gpus.

Is it possible to hold a gpu for vfio in a card with two gpus?
So far no success.

Thanks

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

Powerhouse,

I want to install the i915 vga arbiter patch.
I am running linux mint 19.1.
What is the quickest way to get a kernel installed that has this?
I am willing to compile, but so far internet instructions on doing this fail at the patch stage.
Thanks

I want to uninstall a package from mint 19. However apt wants to uninstall cinnamon and ten other apps also, for no apparent reason. I have known about this bug for a while but now i need to get rid of a particular package. Period. Anyone found a solution for this yet? sudo apt remove libimobiledevi...

Re: cinnamon is buggy after 19.1 upgrade

I use an icon for raid status in case of a raid recovery:

watch cat /proc/mdstat

Does not work from the desktop anymore.
I did recreate it and added it to the main menu.
It will launch from the main menu, just not the desktop.

Re: cinnamon is buggy after 19.1 upgrade

the fix for the new launcher works.
no real solution for launching shell commands though.
nemo 3.04 works, nemo 3.06 does not.

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

UPDATE: For those reading I have a laptop with nvidia optimus. I have good news. the i915 driver is no longer preventing qemu from booting. Sorry, I do not know if an update to the driver or qemu fixed the issue, but I have removed nomodeset from my boot line , the i915 driver loads, and windows10 c...

Re: high cpu usage with no activity

I will give that a try.
Did you just remove the system tray applet or did you do a full uninstall?

UPDATE: no dice.

Do you get any warning pop-up that you are running in Software Rendering mode logging into the Default Session?
There is no message about software rendering mode either way, strangely enough.
I thought that fbdev supported acceleration.
Correct me if I am wrong.

Re: high cpu usage with no activity

further testing:
does not happen when using genuine nvidia driver instead of fbdev.

conclusion:
its related to software rendering mode.
only occurs in the full mint 19, not the beta.
