I'm new to Xen, and as probably many of us, have encountered some
problems I cannot overcome myself. I first tried to find answers to my
questions at the #xen unofficial freenode channel, also checked FAQ, but
no luck so far.
/Please note, I'm using CC=gcc-3.4 & ARCH=xen during the compilations on
a ia32 based machine/
1. In my dom0, whenever I try to compile NVIDIA driver for my VGA card,
the compilation itself finishes flawlessly, but when it tries to insert
the module, it gives me segfault. I tried different version of the
driver (newer, older) w/o any success. My dom0 kernel is a custom kernel
config with "access to physical hardware" enabled.
For an output of `make CC=gcc-3.4 install ARCH=xen`, `modprobe nvidia`
and the relevant portion of dmesg, please see the following file.
2. I know it's kind of a minor thing compared to the overall feeling
that xen provides me, so I don't consider it to be a bug, but I want to
be sure it is something not implemented yet instead of me doing
I'd like to have a 1024x768 framebuffered console for my dom0 domain.
Whenever I pass "vga=791" to the kernel command line, but it does not
take any effect. I'm suspecting it might be cause of the presence of
"console=tty0", so as a test, I changed it to "console=vga", but no luck
Any suggestions are welcome, and appreciated.
