Re: KVM PCI Passthrough NVidia GeForce GTX 1080 Ti error code 43


I'm not sure why you are using an older driver but here what's available in Debian stretch at the moment: 375.82-1~deb9u1 I don't have 1080Ti myself but this driver can handle the regular 1080 for sure and I bet it does handle the Ti as well.

If you want to give a try with a Stretch virtual machine, when calling virt-builder replace debian-8 by debian-9 and that's it ;-)

Here is my notes/scripts when I did that to attach an nvidia card
inside a KVM virtual machine:
I rembered that I can just upgrade to Stretch the usual way by changing
the sources.list files.
Unfortunately it is exactly the same as what I described in my prvious
email to Alexander. I could install and configure the driver but
startxfce4 does not start.

startxfce4: https://pastebin.com/0MeCU492

xorg.conf: https://pastebin.com/a4qGhsxz

Maybe I do not startxfce4 correctly?
Do I need to change xorg.conf?
Or is there any way to check if the driver works in the guest?

Thanks again for your help.

Best regards,
