  1. Is there an article I can read about this? The latest article I've seen was the one I linked that mentions 6.11. I haven't been following the mailing list very closely though.
  2. There'll be mainline support once the Xe drivers are ready though. The last post about it on Phoronix from about a month ago says that they're working on SR-IOV now: https://www.phoronix.com/news/Linux-6.11-DRM-Intel-Xe-Next If I remember correctly, Linux 6.11 (which they're targeting) is scheduled for release around September or October. We'll see if Intel's driver is complete by then.
  3. As per the documentation for the kernel module being used (https://github.com/strongtz/i915-sriov-dkms), the module has to be loaded in both the host (that's Unraid) and the guest VM. It only supports Linux 6.5 and older, so you may need to downgrade the kernel in the VM before installing it. The Windows Intel iGPU driver already has SR-IOV support built-in, which is why Windows VMs "just work" with no changes needed. It'll be built-in to Linux as well once the new Xe driver is available.
  4. There's only one physical GPU so I think you'll only see stats from the first one. I think that should be total stats for everything though. Edit: for Intel top, I think there's a command line argument to show info on the SR-IOV devices? Try running it with --help. They didn't say they were. They were just quoting the error message, which says this.
  5. Do you mean that VNC doesn't work? When editing the VM, you need to configure the VNC virtual graphics as the first graphics adapter, and the Intel one as the second one. There's a little green plus button (that's easy to miss) to add another graphics adapter.
  6. Which CPU do you have? 13900K and 14900K have known stability/reliability issues (not just on this motherboard). Other CPUs in the same generations should be OK though. Are you using SR-IOV by any chance (to share the iGPU with multiple VMs and the host)? I've had a few crashes caused by it. Like the other reply said, set up syslog and check the messages when it locks up. There should be a crash of some sort. It might be a CPU stall.
  7. This used to be possible with GVT-g (5th to 10th gen Core) but I don't think Intel ever fully implemented DMA-BUF for SR-IOV. That might change with the upcoming Xe driver. We'll see...
  8. Makes sense. Thanks for the info. I did see some code for SR-IOV in the i915 driver in Intel's 6.9 kernel. If I get some free time, I'll try to see if those changes can be extracted into a DKMS module again. I don't have any kernel development experience though. Anything that depends on functionality in the i915 driver will need to be updated.
  9. Intel are adding a new graphics driver that has native SR-IOV support: https://www.phoronix.com/news/Intel-Xe-DRM-Linux-6.9-Pull https://lore.kernel.org/dri-devel/CAPj87rO4K6QS8hVn-d6N8CEi+Uibmgo6mZ5bNGz2rZDUMshvxA@mail.gmail.com/T/ This driver is for Intel Xe graphics, which includes the integrated graphics in Tiger Lake (11th gen) and newer, as well as their discrete GPUs. The pull request says it's experimental for Tiger Lake (11th gen) to Meteor Lake (1st gen of Core Ultra mobile CPUs, released December 2023), and will be used as the primary driver for the next generation onwards. What's unclear to me is: Is this driver ready to test in 6.9, or are more improvements needed? Will it support SR-IOV in integrated GPUs or only discrete GPUs? When will the driver be considered production-ready? (i.e. no longer "experimental") Unfortunately, Unraid 7 beta 1 uses Linux 6.8 which doesn't contain this driver, so we can't try it out with Unraid yet. 6.8 is EOL so they're planning to upgrade to 6.9 before RC1.
  10. unRAID 7.0.0 beta 1 was released today, and it has a much newer kernel (6.8.12). Has anyone tested as to if the new kernel fixes this issue? Unfortunately I don't have time to try it for a few weeks.
  11. I've got the latest BIOS but I've only got the 1.1.11 BMC firmware instead of 1.1.12. I'll try upgrade it.
  12. I've got the mATX board, and mine doesn't have an "IPMI" tab. There's tab labelled "Server Mgmt" instead, but it doesn't have an option like the one you mentioned:
  13. TOTP is good and much better than what exists in Unraid today, but FIDO2/WebAuthn would be ideal. Many companies are slowly trying to migrate away from TOTP, as it doesn't really solve the way that passwords are most commonly stolen - phishing attacks. A fake login form can just ask for the TOTP code in addition to the username and password, and in the backend immediately authenticate then store the session cookie for later use. My employer completely moved away from TOTP codes internally, and I know Google tries to nudge people away from it these days too. WebAuthn usually uses biometrics (eg fingerprint on phones and laptops that support it) or a hardware token like a Yubikey. Ideally we'd also get SSO (OIDC or SAML) support one day, so that everything in our home lab can use the same log in system (like Authentik) and permissions for everything can be centrally managed. Probably extremely low priority for Unraid though. I can dream
