Thread-topic: [Xen-users] Xwindows or Freenx in a guest domain
Yup running Xen 3.0, unfortunately I never used 2.0, oh well not a big
deal. I guess what I was really trying to do is get sound working in the
guest, could I expect to do that without needed the pci devises
explicitly available with that option?

What version of Xen?  If it's Xen 3.0 you can't (yet) give domUs control
PCI devices, so not seeing any PCI devices is perfectly normal.
we'll re-implement the abillity to give different guests control of
PCI devices, and the "pci =" config option will return once more :-)
