    @alex_conza_twitter Affinity Designer works. Photoshop CC 2019 seems to work too although my trial for Adobe products is over.

    Hey, I'm curious as to how VMetal might work with SLI'd (or Nvlink for the RTX series) Nvidia cards; are they counted separately or as one card? I know QEMU/KVM has sometimes been weird about it in the past, mostly due to Nvidia's policies on SLI, but I haven't seen any material that indicates how it might work on Nitrux
    Uri Herrera
    @UriHerrera
    Hi @jlagaman. Do you mean that if you use two Nvidia cards in SLI, will both be used (seen as) a single card? Or if they will be used as individual cards?.
    Joaquin Lagarrigue
    @jlagaman
    That's right, that's what I'm wondering @UriHerrera
    Uri Herrera
    @UriHerrera

    Right. Indeed, it's worth investigating whether we can make that scenario possible. From what we tried, to the operating system (Linux), the graphics cards are individual devices even if you use an SLI bridge or NvLink. Thus, VMetal will assign one of them to the virtual machine.

    We also tried by assigning both graphics cards to QEMU, but QEMU itself doesn't support SLI (at the time), so perhaps with newer revisions of QEMU, it works.

    But, if we assume that it's possible to assign both graphics cards and that both appear as a single card to the guest, you'd still need a third card for the Linux host if you wanted to have a graphical session.

    Hi everyone, I’m testing out Nitrux on my laptop but I can’t seem to figure out how to remove the Live Session User. Anyone know if this is possible?

    Hi, I'm getting an error saying "znx: Error: Bad image name (must match '^[a-zA-Z0-9]+/[a-zA-Z0-9]+$')" when trying to deploy. The ISO file name seems fine ("nitrux_stable_amd64.iso" was the default but I tried renaming to just "nitrux.iso" and still got the same error). Google hasn't provided me with any answers either. Not sure what I'm doing wrong. Any help appreciated.

    Neal Brophy
    @nealbrophy
    @UriHerrera Thanks for the response. Yeah, I renamed the ISO to just "nitrux.iso" no spaces/slashes/hyphens but still get the same error. Is Right-Click>Rename sufficient or is there another way I should rename the file?
    Uri Herrera
    @UriHerrera
    @nealbrophy No, not the ISO file. The name of the image when you enter it to znx, i.e., you want to deploy Nitrux stable to sda using the file nitrux.iso so you would do: sudo znx deploy /dev/sda nitrux/stable nitrux.iso
    The part nitrux/stable is what shouldn't have spaces or hyphens.
    Neal Brophy
    @nealbrophy
    @UriHerrera Ah, I see. I forgot to change nitrux/$version to the actual version. Dumb mistake. Thanks for your help!

    Hi, I'm downloading the .iso file, for about 8 hours, but it never ends, my download ratio is about 6 Mbs but the file increase and decrease constantly the size.

    @UriHerrera
    @cesar_marin1_twitter Hi. Are you referring to the torrent? We stopped seeding it yesterday. We're serving downloads directly through HTTP now from our server.

    Hi, so after deploying and a reboot i get an error mounting isodevice failed no such file, it seems it cant find the image.0 and recommends i run chkdsk
    Uri Herrera
    @UriHerrera
    @hanzwroach You deployed the development image, right. We're testing a new feature of znx.
    Hanz Winter-Roach
    @hanzwroach
    @UriHerrera so this is an issue with the dev image and not me missing a step, so if I was to download the stable version the same issue won't pop up
    Uri Herrera
    @UriHerrera
    @hanzwroach Correct. It is an issue with the dev. image and it's not present in the stable ISO.
    Hanz Winter-Roach
    @hanzwroach
    @UriHerrera thanks for the help, will take a look at the stable version later on this week it looks like an interesting project.

    Hello all, I'm new to Nitrux and Gitter group.
    I'm having iso downloading issue. I donated and got iso download link via email, so I saved the link for download anytime.
    but the link is maybe one-time only, I can't download by following the url anymore. for some reason, I can't access to downloaded .torrent file now
    I can show PayPal receipt or email for proof. maybe @UriHerrera can help?
    I'm sorry if there are any other way to re-download. Thank you for your help in advance

    Hello all, I'm interested in switching over to Nitrux from a Windows 10 build, but wondering if anyone can answer a question for me: Does VMetal only support USB inputs, or might the keyboard/mouse on my laptop work for it?
    Uri Herrera
    @UriHerrera
    @EJaworenko Hi there. If the keyboard and touchpad of the Laptop are reported to the operating system as a USB device and are not connected through an internal USB Hub, then yes. If they are connected through a USB Hub, then no.
    And, since you're mentioning a Laptop, it's essential to know the following:
    • The use of VMetal requires that two completely independent GPUs are found in the system. It is the case that with most hybrid graphics found in laptops that there are indeed two graphics chips, however, they are not independent of each other. Typically, the low-powered GPU will drive the main display and the external display outputs, when the user switches to the discrete GPU, the low-powered GPU takes the role of a display adapter with the discrete GPU taking the part of the 3D renderer.
    • You may check the output of the script above to verify this (https://nxos.org/en/faq/#how-can-i-check-if-my-hardware-supports-vmetal). For example, a GPU will output the following string: VGA compatible controller while a 3D renderer outputs this string: 3D controller. The main difference between these two values is how they’re reporting to the operating system. A 3D controller does not drive displays by itself, and it uses the VGA controller as a passthrough to output the video to the connected screens.
    • In addition to this, you must be able to select one of the two GPUs in your system as a primary display output or as an initial display output in the UEFI. Given the way that hybrid graphics work, likely, this is not an option.
      Switching the GPU that is used after the operating system has booted up makes no difference since the operating system has to take over the device during boot time.

    I am havi
    Sorry. I am having an issue with vmetal
    It says not enough space on the disk, but I have 3.5 TB free. Any ideas?
    Zayveeo5e
    @Zayveeo5e
    I noticed the free space check for the vmetal_init.sh script is not outputting 1 or 0 like the script is looking for. It is instead outputting "4.0"
    Uri Herrera
    @UriHerrera
    @Zayveeo5e Can you add the output
    Zayveeo5e
    @Zayveeo5e
    Sorry it took so long! just got back on my computer.
    Here is the output:
    OS storage image does not exists. Creating 50G image
    /tmp/.mount_vmetalvrKXO1/vmetal_init.sh[114]: 4.0: unexpected '.'
    - [ERROR] Not enough space available to create OS Storage Image. Clear up some space and retry
    - Exitting...

    If I run vmetal as root I get this:
    OS storage image does not exists. Creating 50G image
    /tmp/.mount_vmetalDpedZs/vmetal_init.sh[114]: 5.6: unexpected '.'

    @Zayveeo5e I have created an issue at our bug tracker here Nitrux/nitrux-bug-tracker#5 can you add the output of the following commands to it?

    1 - df -H $HOME/VMetal
    2 - df -H $HOME/VMetal | grep -vE "^Filesystem|tmpfs|cdrom" | awk '{print $4}'
    3 - df -H $HOME/VMetal | grep -vE "^Filesystem|tmpfs|cdrom" | awk '{print $4}' | rev | cut -c 2- | rev
