XEN 177.82 - Cannot display TTY1 (Ctrl-Alt-F1)
Hi everyone,

I compiled the latest 177.82 driver on my SLES 10 SP2 (XEN kernel) as per instructions (and with Thanks!) from muchologo's post "XEN - NVIDIA - STEP BY STEP".

Everything works and its very stable with 3D desktop effects. However, when I hit Ctrl-Alt-F1 to switch to my TTY1, the screen goes blank. First, I am able to switch back via Ctrl-Alt-F7 to the GUI so no worries there. However, all my TTYs are now blank (1 thru 4, I disabled the rest).

I know the TTYs are still there because I could login as root and actually perform a reboot of the system just by typing against the blank screen (typing blind). :D

So it appears that the 177.82 driver compiled for XEN does not display the TTYs. Any ideas and suggestions to fix is this greatly appreciated. Thank you. :)

EDIT: Hardware is Thinkpad T61p with nVidia Quadro FX 570M.
