I have sent a PM to you.

Wondering if you could still help me.

 

The radeontop plugin seems to be able to install successfully now but I still cannot boot into GUI mode.

 

I gave up on that and am now just trying to get a passthrough for a windows 10 VM to work. Whenever I start up the VM, I can tell that something is happening because my HDMI output goes black in a similar way to when trying to start GUI mode but nothing more than that.

 

Just like GUI mode, CTL-ALT-F3 bring up a cursor for command entry but that's obviously not what I'm looking for. Any ideas?

For such things I don't recommend installing the RadenTOP plugin sonce if you are planing to pass through the iGPU to a VM you have no benefit of enabling it on the host first, rather I would bind it to VFIO.

 

Also this question is better be asked in the VM Support subforums.

 

Keep in mind that passing through the only GPU in your Server to a VM can be very tricky and doesn't work always from what I know.

I should have waited a few minutes before commenting.

 

I tried changing some settings in my BIOS and apparently there was a setting for the GPU to use pcie insteaad of integrated (I don't have a pcie gpu). After changing that setting and reinstalling the radeontop plugin, my VM is now passing through my APU! I haven't tried a reboot yet nor have I tried GUI boot but I'm optimistic.

 

Anyone having similar issues should double check all your BIOS settings!

 

Now I just have to figure out how to get my damn usb i/o to pass through.

I would recommend that you buy a PCIe card and pass the entire card through to the VM so that hotplug is working properly... Or of you got a second controller on the motherboard to pass through that entirely so that you can take advantage of passthrough.

 

Glad to hear that after a reboot everything is working.

Unfortunately, ut's an ITX board with only on PCIe slot which is occupied by my SAS card. Hence why I'm trying to utilize my APU.

 

My though is that I have an APU just sitting there taking up overhead on my CPU so I might as well try to use it for something. So I thought I would try making my existing server into an extra windows 10 machine for me to use for basic web browsing in my bedroom.

@ich777 Thanks again for this. I used the tool to create a custom kernel with the GNIF patch and also coral and DVB drivers. I did want to ask - are plugins compatible with this?

 

Initially I just had the GNIF patch on and then installed the DVB and Coral driver plugins from the app section. But as soon as the coral driver was modprobe'd I got a kernel panic. So I rebuilt with GNIF and coral drivers built in. But then I would get a kernel panic when my DVB hardware was initialised from the plugin as well.

 

So ultimately I built the kernel with all three and that works fine.

As soon as you build the images with the gnif patch you can't install any plugins with drivers included.

 

Just a little note, when 6.10.0 drops you don't have to build a custom Kernel and you can install everything with plugins, even the gnif vendor reset. ;)

Does it install with installpkg if you run manually.

 

Yes its install manually OK, but then having error when execute iperf3 :

 

iperf3: /lib64/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.33' not found (required by /usr/lib64/libiperf.so.0)

This is the wrong version, which version from unRAID are you running and also where did you get the package from ipref3 and for what version for Slackware did you download it?

Has it been released yet?

You have to update to 6.10.0-RC1 and the install it from the CA App.

 

If you are still on 6.9.2 you can't see it because there is no version from the "AMD Vendor Reset" plugin for 6.9.2 available.

I don't understand the question entierely...

You need hpshba to see your disks or am I wrong?

Do you run the plugin from the CA App?

If not use the plugin from the CA App:

(reboot after installing the plugin and your disks should show up again)

 

Also the Kernel Helper will be deprecated soon since you can basically run everything from plugins.

I have updated to Version: 6.10.0-rc1 and have hpsahba plugin installed but all i see is this1103141443_nodisk.thumb.PNG.2bd0f8d4923a30b41969a8833b0f3f06.PNG

I'll look into this ASAP, maybe something is wrong with the module...

 

Please stick for now to unRAID 6.9.2, I will report back.

If you are still on 6.10.0-rc1 please try the following:

  1. Remove the hpsaba plugin
  2. Reinstall it from the CA App
  3. Reboot
  4. Hopefully everything is working again

 

If you are back on 6.9.2 upgrade to 6.10.0-rc1 again and see if it is working again.

 

Hopfeully the fix that I've pushed solves this issue.
