Need help stop qemu from crashing when Looking Glass' ivshmem-plain is enabled

Hi. I have managed to get almost all the way to my goal of using Looking Glass on a VM that I pass my EVGA RTX 3090ti to.

As long as I don’t add the:

<shmem name='looking-glass'>
  <model type='ivshmem-plain'/>
  <size unit='M'>32</size>
</shmem>

As long as this isn’t set, I can boot, install NVIDIA drivers, do everything. I add it, and it crashes on startup with a bunch of “VFIO_MAP_DMA failed: Invalid Argument” followed by a “qemu: hardware error: vfio: DMA mapping failed, unable to continue”.

Any help would be much appreciated!

Best regards,
Marco

Edit: here is the qemu log for the run, slightly abridged. I couldn’t upload a .txt file and didn’t find any formatting option similar to ‘spoiler’, apologies if this is gauche:

EDIT2: trying to use B6-rc1 and using the kernel module provided instead with DKMS yields the same problem. as soon as I try to run a VM with the /dev/kvmfr0 file configured, it crashes. log below:

With such an error there should be something related to vfio failing to map pages in dmesg. You should take a look there too.

Oh good call. sudo dmesg -w gets me some interesting output related to the CPU when I try to start the VM, but I have no idea what it means:

I’m also experiencing this exact issue, system boots in just fine without the ivshmem device, crashes instantly when added.

Dumb question / suggestion (because it worked for me) try changing your cpu model to anything thats not host passthrough/model, doing that fixed it immediately for me, don’t know why because ive never had to change it before its always ‘just worked’

if someone with a bigger brain than mine has any idea as to why it worked let me / us know

edit: host-model worked for me, passthrough refuses to work

Interesting. I tried that now but still no dice.

If I have the <qemu:commandline…/> block pointing to /dev/kvmfr0, it will only boot if I don’t pass-through any PCI host devices (NVMe or RTX 3090) and vice-versa. :face_holding_back_tears:

Unsure if this is relevant, but even when I boot successfully with just the GPU passthru, I still get the following in the logs. If I pass both NVMe and 3090 ti, looks like the same output, but twice. But Windows boots, NVIDIA drivers load, etc.
