1. Yes, I mounted as primary card.
2. For me, I created XML by virt-manager on Fedora and then dump it.
After that, I copy it to Ubuntu and define it into libvirt by using virsh command. Then edit and launch VM in virsh.

And K420 works great.So maybe we got new chocie about low-level Quadro Series card passthrough into VM.
Thanks for sharing this, were you passing through the Quadro as primary VGA or secondary display?
This is probably slightly OOT, I’m intrigued in setting up with pure libvirt without virt-manager (virsh?), is there any converter that you use to migrate from pure QEMU command line? I don’t really like the way virt-manager force me to use specific location for my image storage pool, which sometimes it overrides the directory permissions.
