  1. Is there a one single location or single guide that walks through how to get GPU (Nvidia) passthrough working on Catalina? I'm referring to all the little tiny things from start to finish you have to do or might have to check on, such as tiny xml edits and adjustments, weird tweaks, etc. I've had no issues getting linux and win10 going with passthrough, including USB controllers, but even hours and hours of fiddling has gotten me nowhere with GPU passthrough and Catalina. And I know there are little bits and pieces of useful information in multiples places and threads but it's a big challenge trying to wrangle them all together. Stuff like "Oh try this..." or "Change this line in your xml".
  2. Hello, I have passed through my 'entire' RTX 2080 card, which includes its USB controller to a Linux (Pop OS) VM. I used the VFIO-PCI plugin to generate/build the vfio-pci.fg file. The video card and on-board audio pass through without issue. My keyboard and mouse are connected to the USB-C connection on the back of the card, and this is passed through as well and works some/most of the time. Note that everything in the vfio-pci.cfg flagged for passthrough is in the same IOMMU group. What I'm getting is seemingly random freezes where the system will not recognize any inputs from keyboard, mouse, or from neither. Physically disconnecting and reconnecting will fix it for a while until it happens again. I have not yet tried this on a Windows 10 VM but do plan to do this eventually. Anyone have any suggestions on what to try to solve this? It's pretty aggravating.
  3. Jumping into a Win10 gaming VM and wanted to understand the considerations between some of the options in this space and see how they might differ. I am consolidating my existing baremetal gaming system into my existing Unraid build. And I was planning on moving the BM systems Evo 860 m2 over to unraid, placing it into a 2.5 sata enclosure (my only m2 on the board is being used by cache drive nvme) and passing through this 860 to the Win10 VM using the unassigned devices 'pass through' tab and setting it up correctly within the xml settings for the VM. I've done this before and the VM indeed does see the entire drive. But I am not sure if that particular setup has the same overhead as passing through an entire SATA controller, or even how it compares with a vdisk image file instead.
  4. Hello, Is there any way to add downloads to jdownloader without opening its webUI and putting them in manually? I did see a couple Chrome extensions for Jdownloader but it appears they only work if you have it installed locally. Thanks!
  5. Secret and port information for RPC part of the client don't persist between sessions. Anyone know why? This is not for the RPC listener, those are fine. If I open a window in incognito or something, the settings go back to defaults and the secret is blank.
  6. Same issue happening to me. On 6.8.0. SMB shares mounted on Ubuntu. Switched to version1.0 for now to see how it goes.
  7. It would be great if we could tweak what functions we would want to use (or not use). Maybe via container variables? For example, I have a 'dropbox' style file upload app that I use that doesn't require authentication to upload files and deletes them automatically when retention timer is up. It's dead simple and I like it that way. But I want to watch for files getting created(uploaded) in that directory and not at all if those files are deleted. So would be great to be able to exclude DELETE,ISDIR for example.
  8. I have no issues with performance with the settings I have chosen within my fstab. I remember long ago having to find a good set of parameters to make it perform well, and it currently does. I am more interested in why turning this on rearranges seemingly unrelated items within the XML.
  9. I've been taking detailed notes in my journey with GPU passthrough and Unraid. And the most recent weirdness that I have come across is my passthrough breaking once I set up a couple shares within the VM settings GUI. Taking a closer look, it appears as though just adding a couple of those shares ends up scrambling a lot of other info within the XML. Namely PCI controller domain/bus/slot/etc information. Just jacks it all up. I was able to get things working as they should by simply taking the working passthrough XML and inserting the <filesystem type=mount> stuff from the broken XML at the bottom. I was expecting it to not work, but it works fine and I haven't seen any ill effects. So I am really puzzled why setting these shares within the GUI messes it all up. For reference, please see this diff I saved. The passthrough XML that works fine is on the right. The left side is what you get when you turn on two file shares in the VM settings GUI. That's the only change I made, yet you can see how many things actually get modified. Is there a reason for this? Diff: https://www.diffchecker.com/XKHWnUTt
  10. The 'messages' function didn't do it for me. I use this primarily for letting my users know if Plex is down and/or there is maintenance (i.e., I'm aware it's down) and for that use case, I simply set the 'project name' or 'project description' to a downtime or similar message. Benefit is it's right in your face when you go to the landing page.
  11. Hopefully an easy question but wanted to ensure I was doing things correctly, but can I utilize a single Nvidia card (p400) for my containers like Tdarr to utilize as well as have an edited syslinux.cfg file that passes the video card through for VM use? I assume it's 'no' but I wanted to make sure.
  12. Question about 'Glances' - The network interfaces down the left side seem to include docker containers. However the naming scheme being used isn't something that correlates to anything I've tried to look up, including container ID for example. Can someone explain how to correlated that? Screenshot for reference:
  13. Advice on how to get this to monitor my Plex server externally? I am running this on a VPS and want it to monitor my home Plex server. Not sure the 'best' way to do this. I don't want to monitor my whole server, just the PMS instance/container.
  14. Would this apply to Safari as well? I could have sworn I was having similar issues there, too. Or is there a way to tell Chrome to not use hardware acceleration? Seems many people would have a use case for this so I'm surprised if there isn't a way around it.
  15. Getting visual display bugs connecting over VNC. Used Guacamole VNC as well as native MacOS screen sharing to connect and the bugs persist either way. I did some searches in the thread but they are generic search terms (display, bug, rendering) and haven't come up with anything. Attached is an example of what I'm talking about. Happens a LOT. Noticed in browsers (Safari/Chrome) only so far...
