KVM don't have /dev/dri


Recommended Posts

Hi using a Lenovo M93p tiny.

Installing 918+ bare metal I get /dev/dri and plex transcoding hw works great.

 

Installing in the same maskin with debian 10 KVM

Installing 918+ works but unable to get plex hw transcoding.

Missing /dev/dri

 

Any ideas how to fix this?

Thanks

Manage to pass /dev/dri to KVM in plex shows hw but does not transcode. Just spinn. Must miss something in the KVM.

@bearcat Have test with 6 friends and transcoding different movies simultaneous 50%. Works well 

I will like to use it as a KVM. I manage to pass the pci card and it show in plex at transcodes but on the device it just spins

I think plex is using the wrong transcoder. Unfortunately I don't know where to look. Any suggestions?
