I'm aware of the wiki and the other site. Neither of them review this issue at the .moment. The person rewriting the wiki doesnt have experience w the two identical gpu issue so im hoping to solve this and provide the solution that worked.
Sending from my phone. Please pardon the mistakes.
There is not just the forum, you also have the wiki (i admit it is a bit outdated too but someone in the mailing list is working on rewriting it) :
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/PCI_passthrough_via_OVMFThere is also a guy who made a video and a huge post on a forum :http://www.se7ensins.com/forums/threads/how-to-setup-a-gaming-virtual-machine-with-gpu-passthrough-qemu-kvm-libvirt-and-vfio.1371980/Modules are indeed in mkinit, read the wiki ;)2016-04-14 5:00 GMT+02:00 Garland Key <david garland key gmail com>:Hey there,
1. I followed the instructions listed on this blog (http://vfio.blogspot.com) and got my current machine to run a windows 10 vm with pci passthrough perfectly. I've now switched back to Arch (my default OS) and want to try to adapt these instructions now that I know it will work.2. I have 2 identical GPUs, so I have to follow the special instructions outlined in https://vfio.blogspot.com/2015/05/vfio-gpu-how-to-series-part-3-host.html. Again, this worked on Fedora, so to my knowledge it should work on Arch too.
3. Please do not refer me to the outdated Arch forums with 680+ posts that has now been closed. That thread should be deleted as it is unwieldy and useless. I have two Nvidia GTX 970s, but again, it worked on Fedora 23. I'm throwing this out there due to other advice that I have been given in the past.
4. Dracut isn't used in Arch but mkinitcpio is. You're asked to insert add_drivers+="vfio vfio_iommu_type1 vfio_pci vfio_virqfd" in: /etc/dracut.conf.d/local.conf.
Should I instead add MODULES="vfio vfio_iommu_type1 vfio_pci vfio_virqfd" to mkinitcpio.conf?
5. Farther down, I'm supposed to insert install_items+="/sbin/vfio-pci-override-vga.sh /usr/bin/find /usr/bin/dirname" in: /etc/dracut.conf.d/local.conf.
Should I instead add install_items+="/sbin/vfio-pci-override-vga.sh /usr/bin/find /usr/bin/dirname" to /etc/modprobe.d/vfio.conf?
Any help you can provide is greatly appreciated.
