Re: Nvidia support for Xen
I tried to use the NVIDIA driver 270.41.06 together with Opensuse 11.4 and XEN.
My graphics card is a 9800 GTX+.
I followed this procedure
export IGNORE_XEN_PRESENCE=1 SYSSRC=/usr/src/linux-126.96.36.199-0.5 SYSOUT=/usr/src/linux-188.8.131.52-0.5-obj/x86_64/xen
The compilation etc. worked quite well and after "init 5" I got a perfectly working graphical X11/KDE 4.6 environment - as for the standard kernel.
However, for the XEN kernel there is an annoying side effect:
The text consoles tty1 to tty6 and tty10 do not work any more after init 5 . Meaning that by using CTRL ALT Fx I only get a black screen for the ttyx. But with CTRL ALT F7 I can return to the graphical environment.
Any ideas what I could do or try to get the switch to the ttys working?
