Mageia - Virt-Manager cant use PCI-Passthrough
But I bring a problem, I am trying to run Windows 8 on a virtual machine, It will be for gaming and the fact I can snap back to an earlier point in case of any viruses.
But the issue I have is the fact I cant get my AMD 6870 to run in the VM, I have both iGPU and dGPU on, VT-d is turned on, I can also run the VM without a PCI card enabled in the settings, Have I missed something or is my card not supported via passthrough at all?
Here is the output from VM when I attempt to launch with PCI enabled.
Error starting domain: unsupported configuration: host doesn't support passthrough of host PCI devices
Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/share/virt-manager/virtManager/asyncjob.py", line 91, in cb_wrapper callback(asyncjob, *args, **kwargs) File "/usr/share/virt-manager/virtManager/asyncjob.py", line 127, in tmpcb callback(*args, **kwargs) File "/usr/share/virt-manager/virtManager/domain.py", line 1260, in startup self._backend.create() File "/usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/libvirt.py", line 866, in create if ret == -1: raise libvirtError ('virDomainCreate() failed', dom=self) libvirtError: unsupported configuration: host doesn't support passthrough of host PCI devices
Any information from anyone here? I am running Mageia 4, My system specs are as follows.
i5 2500 3.3Ghz
8GB 1600Mhz RAM
G1 Sniper M3
XFX AMD Radeon HD 6870 1GB (Barts)
Thanks in advance!

- I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.
What is the host OS, and what is the virtual machine manager you are trying to use? Also, I am not familiar with Mageia. Have you tried other VMM's such as VMware, VirtualBox, or hardware-level virtual manchines such as KVM?Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
