Anyone been playing with GPU passtrough from Arch linux host to Windows guest on QEMU/KVM? There is documentation and tutorials online but I can't manage to get it working, any tips appreciated. I got nvidia 1660Ti as only graphic for passtrough

@nikolal, I’ll subscribe to this thread, hehe.

I’ve also tried to make it works but haven’t achieved anything :c

Nvidia Quadro P2000 Max-Q

I've found this on reddit, there is some difference between arch wiki page so you can test it and tell me if it worked. I've setup dual boot so I don't need it right now.

@nikolal I'm not sure myself, that said doesn't the Arch Wiki have a crazy in depth page about GPU passthrough?

@ThreeBadgersInATrenchcoat
It does, but currently I'm stuck when rebooting into modified mkinitcpio and grub, graphic card still loads as nvidia instead of vfio. I'll dig more around anyway

@nikolal So you have a manjaro icon but are actually on arch? Mind blown!

@TheDoctor
Its same principle, Manjaro is Arch derivative. Not sure if you are being sarcastic though :)

@nikolal A little. The arch community would give you hell for equaling the two :arch:

@TheDoctor
I don't think I deserved it, I come in peace and so far loving using Manjaro which is after all Arch derivative

@nikolal Hey, I don't judge. Feel free to use whatever you want to. One of my machines is on manjaro as well. I just wanted to point out what you may run into if you seek help with arch whereas you actually run manjaro.

@TheDoctor
For this particular thing I ask setup is very similar among distros since it includes grub and initramfs tweaks, but I get your point and you are right
