@All
Do you use PCI pass-through with KVM?

Hi All,

I compiled the alpha7 for testing today. Unfortunately I had to add POWERNV support to our kernel because without it, the kernel didn't compile with KVM PR support. I reported this issue to the kvm ppc mailing list today.

New:


Download: vmlinux-4.12-alpha7-AmigaONE_X1000.tar.gz
