Hi all.

I've just installed xen under lenny, and see that nvidia isn't supported on xen.

I installed xen module and header corresponding to my kernel version.

I changed my xorg.conf in order to load nv instead of nvidia module.

But now, I don't have any drivers which permit me to have compiz or anything else...

I tried to compile nvidia sources (nvidia-kernel-source) with module-assistant but nothing.

I done it with this command :
m-a a-i nvidia-kernel-source.

An error occured during this installation :

    NVIDIA: left KBUILD.
    nvidia.ko failed to build!
    make[2]: *** [module] Error 1
    make[2]: left directory « /usr/src/modules/nvidia-kernel »
    make[1]: *** [build-stamp] Error 2
    make[1]: left directory « /usr/src/modules/nvidia-kernel »
    make: *** [kdist_image] Error 2

See /var/cache/modass/nvidia-kernel-source.buildlog.2.6.26-1-xen-686.1228066050 for details

I attached buildlog file.

Hoping that somebody have an issue for my problem.

This a known problem, the test that is made in the nVidia installation script is obsolete, you need to patch it.
You can find the patch here: http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=77597
