Baking a proper fix will be more complicated by the fact that PCIe cards themselves may have limitations. For example, most nVidia GPUs have 40 bits DMA addressing capability, some 39, an a few (still modern) ones -- just 37 [ref. nVidia "README" in the driver package]. > PCI passthru doesn't allow the BAR values to be modified (this could > be changed, but it's a lot of work for little gain). Removing another signature of detecting virtualization and increasing compatibility would be negligible gain?

Do you know something I don't? ;) I really hope bhyve developers can spare a bit of time on getting GPU passthrough to work... I know nothing about these things, and where I waste half a day messing around, the problem could be fixed in half an hour by someone who knows. > later, > Peter. -- [SorAlx] ridin' VN2000 Classic LT _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list https://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-virtualization To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-virtualization-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
