  1. ok, so ... it turns out i do have sound, but not as i want it. I dont have sound on splashtop. Its not a deal breaker for me but would be handy. I have a hdmi cable from my passed through gpu to one hdmi port on my monitor - when im on that port the sound works fine, which i suppose makes sense. Just need to figure out why there is no sound on linux via splashtop. Im going to guess its to so with the splashtop streamer now rather than the hardware.
  2. Linux pop-os 5.11.0-7620-generic going through the google searches now ..
  3. Im at a bit of a loss as to what to do here. The sound works great on Windows 10 and 11 vm's with gpu passthrough. I have a GTX1050 Ti and I also have the onboard AMD sound enabled in the VM and am using that for the sound and not the GPU audio. Like i say, works a treat on WIN VM's. On POPos both sound devices show up in the settings. I can select them both as well. When i 'test' the sound in settings there is nothing but silence [yes i have checked my speakers] lspci -v show the below for the devices - If im right - looks like the kernel module and drivers are incorrect? If so, how do i fix this. thanks. 02:00.0 Audio device: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc.

  4. My syslog file in /var/log/syslog has the following error message: Mar 14 11:21:39 urus kernel: vfio-pci 0000:0c:00.0: BAR 1: can't reserve [mem 0xb0000000-0xbfffffff 64bit pref] It repeats this error so many times that upon restart and/or boot up i get a warning notification that something is wrong with my server and the 'log' scale in the Dashboard/memory is red @ 100%. Oh, and the size of the syslog file is 126MB with the repetion of that one line above 0c:00:0 is my Nvidia GTX 1050 Ti which i have binded to vfio via the tools/system devices page as I have to use it for the VMs. Im struggling to get the VMs to work properly at the moment. I had a Win10 vm working with the card just this morning. I added an Arch VM, with VNC and that worked too. I tried to add the 1050 to the arch VM and it was a no go. Yes i made sure the WIN 10 vm was stopped first. Went back to VNC on the arch vm and got that "Guest has not initialized the display yet" The 1050 is in slot 2 in my mobo. My 5700xt is in slot one and selected as initial display in mobo bios too. 5700 is NOT bound in vfio. Including the Diagnostic here and the output from the /var/log/syslog file here. Id be very grateful for any help. thanks
  5. Initially the two VMs that I had dissapeared after i typed 'libvirtd' into the console. Did a reboot and the VM's are back. So im guessing the service is running. Have not had a chance to try the virt manager again yet.
  6. Tried to use the virt manager docker as im having no luck with VMs on unraid & i got a error sayin that virtmanager could not detect the libvirtd service... and indeed : How do I sort this? Thanks.
  7. can you expand on the "access console, modify /macinabox/" bit cheers
  8. Ah right. I think the longest cable i would need would be about 8m to the AMP. There is the option to put the server closer to the AMP but that would involve some moving about of furniture etc. something to think about i suppose. For now though just trying to get a little idea of what sort of spec would suffice for the client.
  9. Could you elaborate on this please. Thanks.
  10. So Im setting up an unraid server with a Ryzen 3700x and an Radeon 5700xt. I want to use it mainly for storage and back up but want to get into the world of VMs and Gaming from the Unraid server and just learn more about what i can do with Unraid. Flight Sim and a bit of F1 is about all my gaming interest. If i have understood the various post and videos corectly I would need to 'passthrough' to the GPU for gaming to be playable. Is this correct? The other question that I then have is how good/what spec [cpu/ram/gpu] realisticly does the client machine need to be in order to play the games from the server at a reasonable level? I will most probably game at 1080p on a telly and prefer high settings. Thanks.
  11. Ok, so i have just found in my box of pc components an i7 -2700k CPU, sandy bridge. Bit long in the tooth or not?
  12. Thanks for your reply Zonediver. I suppose I could sell the MOBO then and go Intel for unraid. Whats the minimum intel generation i should stick with - Coffee lake .. or newer than that? 12 WD drives eh lol.. nice.
  13. Hi all, First post here so here goes... Currently have an Asustor 2 bay nas which is about to run out of space so need to upgrade. Been interested in building my own server and came across Unraid whilst looking at Freenas - and now I just want an Unraid server. So i need some help with spec: The server will be used 75% for file storage and back up, the rest of it i want to use for streaming media and then to just 'explore' what i can do with an Unraid server.. play with VMs and VPNs and whatever else it will allow me to do. Re spec: I have already in my possession a Gigabyte x570 Aorus Pro wifi - the mini itx board. It was laying around so i may as well use it. M-itx may not be ideal but its what have. I also have a Corsair PSU, i think its 750w, over kill i think but like the mobo its what i have. What CPU? I was thinking one of the ryzen 'G' cpus with the onboard graphics, should be sufficent for my needs & it saves me putting a GPU into the single slot on the board. Would like your feedback on this please. Hard drives: What are the go to drives nowadays? I got some WD 'greens' [nas drives] about 4/5 years ago for the nas i have now, never had a problem with them to this day. 5400 or 7200? How much RAM is optimal? Whats the best thing i can put in that single PCIe slot? [card for more drives perhaps?] Parity & Cache: what are the reccomendations here? What size should the cache drive be? The nas I have now is Raid 1 with 2 TB of storage space. I plan to re-use that for an offsite back up once unraid server is set up. Id like to have 10TB of storage space on this unraid server. This is not including the disks for parity and cache. thanks.
