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

I have been using a radeon pro duo with 2 gpus for a while. However, I could only use 1 gpu in passthrough. Well, here is the fix to get both working: I had to change my lines from: -device vfio-pci,host=0c:00.0,bus=root_port1,addr=00.0,multifunction=on,x-vga=on \ -device vfio-pci,host=0c:00.1,bus=r...

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

Thanks for mentioning ryzen. I switched to amd threadripper and have had various issues. I had to switch from using the -cpu host to using -cpu EPYC to resolve some windows 10 updates issues (thread exception unhandled). Turned out windows 10 was an upgrade from windows 7 and that was causing all th...

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

Issue with cd eject resolved. I am on the qemu mailing list and the guys on there solved it for me. First, list out the scsi dev node associated with your burner (you might have to install lsscsi): >lsscsi -g [0:0:0:0] disk ATA ST2000LM003 HN-M 0006 /dev/sda /dev/sg0 [4:0:0:0] disk ATA ST4000LM024-2...

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

Sorry, I had two different posts for two different PCs. The one was for the msi gt70 laptop I have used for 5 years. Basically, the vga 15 pin out was disabled when doing qemu passthrough. I was using the laptop screen for linux and the display port for qemu. I wanted to have the laptop screen appea...

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

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: 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.
