I hate asking for tech support on this stuff, but I’ve RTFM-d every resource I could find, and have gotten nowhere. Also I apologize if I’ve confused any names like libvirt, qemu, etc.
I am running Arch Linux, and trying to do the (in)famous gpu passthrough VM setup. I am following this guide on the glorious Arch wiki “PCI Passthrough via OVMF” (can’t post a link as a new user)
Everything has gone fine until section 4.1, configuring libvirt. It instructs me to edit a config file to enable EFI support with the virtual machine, but when I edit it as instructed, and restart libvirt, it prevents virt-manager from making any kvm connections. (Specifically it says Error: No active connection to install on.)
Nearly every resource I found told me to add the same line to the nvram section, so I have no idea what I am supposed to do instead.
The comments in the config file mention that the nvram option is obsolete, so I am wondering if the guides (including the Arch wiki) are just all outdated.
I’ve been searching for a solution for a while, and have only found the same info.
Thanks for any help!
