(4.14.5+) Because Arch itself has dropped i686 support, I have removed i686 from the PKGBUILD and there is no config file either.

@Fleetscut ...damn TNX. Im a noob in linux so I was stuck thinking that was a nvidia problem. After the last gcc-8.1.0 I wasn't able to reinstall the nvidia-dkms module. By the way the virtual machine and the pci pass through worked fine, was only the host to have a 800x600 resolution ^_^ For the moment ill blacklist the new gcc.

i cant seem to build this kernel with gcc-8.1.0. i keep getting a message that mv cannot stat the temp directory that is being used to build. happens no matter where i point the build directory. i had to downgrade to my last version of gcc to get it to work.

When you build this PKGBUILD, you will get the three packages. As for how pacaur or ANY other aur helper works, I cannot say.

Does the kernel need to be rebuilt to install linux-vfio-headers? For example, I run pacaur -S linux-vfio, it compiles and installs the kernel. Then I run pacaur -S linux-vfio-headers, it compiles the kernel again before installing the headers. Aren't the headers just extracted from the tarball?

Dehir: What?

IF there is every possible to get realtime kernel with vfio same time :P

If either of you can get a core dump, I can investigate, but I don't know what else to tell you because I do not have the same hardware as you.

I can also confirm that with 4.11.4+ I cannot start my VMs that have a dedicated GPU. Experiencing output very similar to @cinna .

markzz commented on 2018-02-10 01:51

cinna: None of those functions in the call trace are in the patches that this kernel provide. I would either file a bug with Arch or with upstream.

I'm having a similar issue as zatricky where a VM refuses to launch when I have a dedicated gpu attached. Here's a relevant dmesg when I attempt to launch it. As for my hardware I'm running a Ryzen processor with a dedicated GPU for my host and another for my VMs
