Re: [Xen-devel] Some trouble to use NVIDIA CUDA with Xen

Your Nvidia device ID seems to imply a GTX770.
I could be wrong, but wasn't this only supported on Quadro/Grid GPUs?
Or is that limitation only applicable to Windows?

Any progress on this topics ?
What is the blocker to run correctly NVIDIA (proprietary) drivers in
kernel in XEN/Dom0 ?

The problem still persit:

- CUDA "deviceQuery" run and exit without error (BUT with xen after
9sec, without xen after 1sec)
- CUDA other programs for example "bandwidthTest" exit with error

Test environment:

- fedora18
- kernel 3.9.11-200.fc18.x86_64
- nvidia drivers 319.37 (comes with CUDA)
- nvidia CUDA 5.5
- XEN 4.2.2 and directly from git repo 4.4.unstable (commit
- AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 5600+

Attached files:

- output from dmesg, deviceQuery (with /bin.time), bandwidthTest
(with /bin/time), lspci -vvv


- PCI output are the same - probably no problem
- dmesg differences ( diff dmesg_boot_without_xen_wt.txt
dmesg_boot_xen_44u_wt.txt )

without XEN:

< x86 PAT enabled: cpu 0, old 0x7040600070406, new 0x7010600070106

with XEN:

NVRM: PAT configuration unsupported.


The MTRR+PAT is not supported (still) in kernel in XEN/dom0 ?
Maybe MTRR+PAT is needed for CUDA too.

Is there any workaround for linux kernels ~ 3.9.x and xen ~ v4.x.x ?

Thanks, Martin Cerveny
