Batch 6 DIY
i5, 64gb ram
Radeon Rx 5700xt
Coolermaster EG200 EGPU enclosure
Fedora KDE 35
QEMU/KVM & IOMMU already enabled
I started using linux 2 years ago now, I’m very far from proficient, but I’m trying. I have been trying to pass through my gpu through my egpu enclosure to my windows vm, I’ve already disabled the amd kernel modules to make sure nothing binds on either side. I’m having trouble figuring out which pci devices to passthrough, doing the gpu + audio has been unsuccessful. I really appreciate any help but if worst comes to worst I’ll just use the spice/qxl rendering for my GIS work; obviously not ideal but I’d rather do it than dual booting.
Should I maybe get one of those external pcie express slots and do it that way?
Maybe my gpu is not great for passing through, I have a rx 560 that I could try out, not sure if that’ll change anything though.
Again thanks to anyone for any help they might be able to offer, I’ve been looking at dozens of search results and nothing really seems to address what I’ve been dealing with. Like I said, I’ll make it work with the spice server for my VM but doing GIS work with just integrated graphics rendering is really challenging.
