Re: [Xen-devel] Re: VGA passthrough on unstable
Thanks a lot for big report. I saw a some messages where users told about wrong bios load when they load pri gfx with gfx_passthrough = 0 and several problems, as example - no any accelerate in video out at all. Have you checked it with gfx_passthrough = 1? The result are same? I saw your last message where with adapt vbars but first try to write correct memory range to the sources from my lspci:
Memory at d0000000 (64-bit, prefetchable) [disabled] [size=256M]
Memory at febc0000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [disabled] [size=128K]
I/O ports at e000 [disabled] [size=256]
Expansion ROM at feba0000 [disabled] [size=128K]
was bad (can't compile the sources), I will check it now again.
And I saw the patch with autodetect BARs (Pasi looked at it below: http://lists.xensource.com/archives/html/xen-devel/2010-12/txtNwRlN3jloS.txt
) but I can't apply this patch on current ustable. If you have a little time, take a look at it please mayb you so smart to adapt it...

Did you take a look at this patch? http://lists.xensource.com/archives/html/xen-devel/2010-12/msg00705.html
It supports dynamic detection of BARs and might help you (if you're not using it already).
