Default Re: Nvidia support for Xen

The same problem as already described by Felix.K:

Hardware:
GA EP-35 DS4
Intel® Core2 Duo E6750
Nvidia Geforce 8800 GT
hd SAMSUNG HD321KJ Sata
----------------------
Debian- Unstable/Sid
vmlinuz-2.6.26-1-xen-686 (stock-kernel)
NVIDIA-Linux-x86-180.29-pkg1.run

Running above mentioned xen-kernel with nvidia.ko driver (compiled with NVIDIA-Linux-x86-180.29-pkg1.run) produces the same problems as already described by Felix.K and others.
- the input /output in the terminals tty 1-6 are not visible, but they accept/react to keyboard inputs.


If I replace "Driver -"nvidia" with -"nv" in my /etc/X11/xorg.conf, the terminals tty 1-6 are working normaly.

lsmod | grep nv or lsmod | grep nvidia - doesn't show a loaded module nvidia in this case.

I suppose that vmlinuz-2.6.26-1-xen-686 has a buildin nvidia module which is loaded at boot time automatically.

Section "Device"
Identifier "GeForce 8800 GT"
Driver "nvidia"
VendorName "NVIDIA Corporation"
BoardName "NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT"
EndSection

Section "Device"

Maybe this could be helpful, as I am not an experienced linux user.
