Re: mintupdate 5.1.0.5

Finally they removed the Vbox guest additions! To the OP: If you install Linux Mint on bare metal , that is directly on the PC and NOT in a virtual machine, you don't need the Vbox guest additions . They are useless! If you install Linux Mint in a VirtualBox virtual machine , you should get and inst...

Re: VM crashes host - need help diagnosing

I agree with the above - Windows 10 will not work with 2 Gig RAM, especially if you try to run Photoshop or Illustrator. You should give it 4 Gig RAM, at the least.

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

Nevermind. I figured it out. Haswell has a issue where hdmi sound is broken when iommu is enabled in grub. To fix it i put "intel_iommu=on,igfx_off". I did not realise at the time that this will in turn break pci passthrough. I got passthrough to work up to the point where the driver is installing ...

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

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

Hi all! I had a working configuration using this guide with one Nvidia card (1060) and the builtin Intel GPU (skylake). However, I recently got a new monitor which I wanted to use with Linux as well, so I added a second Nvidia GPU (1030), as the Intel one didn't output 4K. Now I've done a fresh Min...

Re: QEMU Bridged networking over wifi + subnet/NAT stuff

I ended up doing a passthrough of my wifi card and using a wifi dongle for the host. My computer has two unused Ethernet ports on the back, with different controllers. Maybe I could make use of that somehow? Connect to wifi normally, but use the two ethernet ports to create a fake LAN network betwe...

Re: QEMU Bridged networking over wifi + subnet/NAT stuff

Hello Quirken. This whole networking thing is unfortunately quite a pain in the neck. My how-to describes how to set up networking using bridging, that is a layer 2 protocol (Ethernet / MAC addresses). However, wireless access routers do not support bridging, only layer 3 (IP networking). ebtables i...

Hi,
I have the same after upgrade to Sylvia Cinnamon but following the instructions the reported lack of support for locale: en_US.utf8 disappeared.

Thanks in advance :lol:

@vitriolicex First, fix the bash script: Change -device vfio-pci,host=03:00.1, \ to -device vfio-pci,host=03:00.1 \ Second, you may need to add this to your grub file /etc/default/grub: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="nomodeset vga=normal video=vesafb:off" If the above doesn't help: You have two nearly identica...

@driz: I updated/upgraded a dozen times and almost never had an issue with it. The last time I remember having a problem was with Xen, that was probably 4-5 years ago. That said, I really feel for you. Your setup is different from mine, for once you pass through drives, though I don't think that sho...
