Mkinitcpio missing?

It’s not installed by default?
I need it for virtualization stuff.

But even when i install it with pacman, it says no presets found, and can’t do its thing…

Is this supposed to be like that?
I need to mkinitcpio -P for it to apply the configuration to the kernel (load the vfio driver for the GPU passthrough).

How do i fix this?

We use dracut instead of mkinitcpio. You can do similar things with dracut. mkinitcpio isn’t required for “Virtualization stuff”.

However, if you want to use mkinitpcio, that is also fine. If you are using systemd-boot, you need to install kernel-install-mkinitcpio from AUR and run sudo reinstall-kernels. If you are using grub, you need to reinstall your kernel packages.

I know it’s not required but i know the command for it, and didn’t know the alternative.
What’s the equivalent of mkinitcpio -P for dracut?

I use grub.

dracut-rebuild but if you installed mkinitcpio that would removed some of the dracut packages. It is likely not currently working.

If you use grub and install mkinitpcio, using pacman to reinstall your kernel packages should make mkinitcpio work.

No, it worked.
I think. Did it?

I don’t see any errors, and mkinitcpio didn’t remove anything at all (and i wouldn’t let it without asking why anyway).

Is this it?

Looks like it worked. You should keep both dracut and mkinitpcio installed. Pick one or the other and remove the one you aren’t keeping.

I removed mkinitcpio and mkinitcpio-busybox before running the dracut command. :slight_smile: I suspected i shouldn’t have both. :stuck_out_tongue:

One last thing, the GPU passthrough steps i know how to do require to make a new vfio.conf file in /etc/modprobe.d with the IDs of the passed device. I also put a dependency so that vfio is loaded before amdgpu driver.

Anyway, this all works with dracut right? There’s no extra step needed here?
Grub is also already configured with the vfio IDs, so i should be good to reboot, right? :slight_smile:

Hmm, ok, i rebooted, and the system booted normally, but amdgpu driver is loaded for the GPU whose ID i passed. Is there a different setup required for dracut?

EDIT:

Nevermind, i found a video on youtube on how to do passthrough using dracut. I’m gonna try that.
But that’s beyond this thread.

Thank you @dalto for your help!

Would you mind sharing that link? So if later on someone stumbles over the same problem he knows what you did? would be great for future refenrences!

There’s the commands and code in the description, but it has some errors. For instance, this:

 DEVICE_LOCATIONS="0000:vgaDeviceLocation 0000:audioDeviceLocation"
 for LOCATION in $DEVICE_LOCATIONS; do
  cat "vfio-pci" **Right Angle Bracket** /sys/bus/pci/devices/$LOCATION/driver_override
 done
 modprobe -i vfio-pci

Idk why he wrote cat, cat doesn’t do anything here it should be:

echo "vfio-pci" > /sys/bus/pci/devices/$LOCATION/driver_override

and that’s what is shown in the video as well.

That should be it. The devices loaded with the vfio-pci driver.
However, that’s not the solution for me because the iGPU i tried to pass is in a huge IOMMU group and i’d have to pass other stuff from there as well (that the system uses) in order for it to function.

Now i either have to find if i can isolate just the iGPU and its sound device, try the other GPU in the second slot again and pray it works, or do a single GPU passthrough, but that involves GPU BIOS dumping, or something, idk, i still haven’t gotten to that part.

I get this error:

Error starting domain: internal error: QEMU unexpectedly closed the monitor (vm='Affinity'): 2023-09-23T12:21:11.450774Z qemu-system-x86_64: -device {"driver":"vfio-pci","host":"0000:07:00.0","id":"hostdev0","bus":"pci.5","addr":"0x0"}: vfio 0000:07:00.0: group 2 is not viable
Please ensure all devices within the iommu_group are bound to their vfio bus driver.

And this is group 2:

	07:00.6 Audio device [0403]: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD] Family 17h/19h HD Audio Controller [1022:15e3]

But for a normal GPU passthrough this should work.
