I am teaching myself about VM in an effort to provide my 10 year old son the joy of playing popular games without jeopardizing the stability of his Linux PC.
I am trying to guide my son to be a forward thinking person and there is no better community to be a part of than the OpenSource and Linux Communities.
I will admit I am having difficulty with the GPU pass through aspect of creating a VM.
In my search for guidance I cam across the " Gaming on Linux - With WENDELL from Level1Techs!" video and decided I needed to come here.
I am trying to get a head of the curve on the subject of using only 1 monitor, keyboard, and mouse to run the Host and Guest, that is why I am here.
I did not spend a lot of money on my son’s PC but it is a clear step up from his broken old one.
He has …
ASRock B450M Pro 4
AMD Ryzen 3 2200 integrated Vega 8 GPU
Radeon RX 570 GPU
16 GB RAM
HP E231i Full HD 60Hz VGA DVI DP LED Monitor
I had tried to follow this tutorial … Chris Titus Tech YouTube PCI Passthrough video … but for some reason the lspci -vnn | grep -iP “vga|amdgpu|nvidia|nouveau|vfio-pci” command resulted in no kernel driver being assigned to the RX 570
Of course I am not completely sure his instructions are correct for my situation but it is the most current focused on the AMD CPU and AMD GPUs
So I will be searching here and elsewhere to find a solution to that before moving on to creating the VM and needing to use Looking Glass
