Currently I’m trying to run a dual monitor setup where my second monitor is working (connected to my mobo) and my primary monitor is black (connected to GPU). I’m using a Nvidia 2080 Super and a i5 4690.
in xrandr we can see only one the onboard GPU is being identified. Probably because I’ve passed the PCI-E GPU using PCI passthrough via OVMF guide from archlinux wiki.
What I want to accomplish is having 2 setups. One is my main SO which is manjaro to study and work and the other a windows virtualization for gaming with friends and stuff.
The first setup it would be ideal to have two monitors (in windows this configurations was easy to achieve). One primary and other secondary.
Once I turn on the windows virtualization only my primary monitor would work in order to play games (here I don’t need two monitors but it would be nice to have).
I thought it would be possible to use all nvidia maybe? Or once I switch to all Nvidia my screens wouldn’t display any images because my PCI is passthrough to OVMF?
Thanks in advance for any comments on this…
