[Xen-devel] Getting X to work on XEN unstable / xenolinux 2.4.26


I have recently messaged about not being able to use my marvell yukon 
ethernet card with XEN 1.2. I have switched to XEN unstable / xenolinux 
2.4.26 and now my ethernet card works fine. Many thanks to Dr Ian Pratt 
and Dr Keir Fraser for their quick response.

I am now trying to get X to work. My video card is ATI Radeon 9200. To get 
it to work properly even under regular linux I had to install a property 
FGLRX driver from ATI. When I try to 'startx' from xenolinux 2.4.26 
domain0 I get the following error.

Fatal server error:
Caught signal 11.  Server aborting

That segmentation fault is probably because the FGLRX driver does not work 
under XEN.

Next, I try to 'startx' again but this time with a basic 
/etc/X11/XF86Config file.
This is a basic XF86Config file that tries to use a generic VESA driver. 
This is the driver I used to load under regular linux before I installed 
the property FGLRX driver from ATI and for most purposes it works fine on 
regular linux.

I get the following error under xenolinux 2.4.26.

Is there any way to get FGLRX driver to work under Xen or if not to get 
the generic VESA driver to work so that I can have an X session.
