Unhappy Re: Nvidia support for Xen

ok ... a little update...

I tried different nvidia driver versions:
270.41.06 - result as described
275.43 same result
290.10 kwin crashes when I try to enable desktop effects

I found some old bug reports describing, that nvidia driver version > 260 cause kwin to crash with kde > 4.6.0 on 64-bit systems.

So I tried it with a 32-bit system. Unfortunately I am not able to compile the driver for the xen kernel.
I get this message:

Quote:
ERROR: If you are using a Linux 2.4 kernel, please make sure
you either have configured kernel sources matching your
kernel or the correct set of kernel headers installed
on your system.

If you are using a Linux 2.6 kernel, please make sure
you have configured kernel sources matching your kernel
installed on your system. If you specified a separate
output directory using either the "KBUILD_OUTPUT" or
the "O" KBUILD parameter, make sure to specify this
directory with the SYSOUT environment variable or with
the equivalent nvidia-installer command line option.

Depending on where and how the kernel sources (or the
kernel headers) were installed, you may need to specify
their location with the SYSSRC environment variable or
the equivalent nvidia-installer command line option.
Kernel source and devel packages are installed for the running kernel (2.6.37.6-0.11-xen)

I also ran in /usr/src/inux-2.6.37.6-0.11

Code:
make oldconfig & make prepare
I also tried to specify source and output directory by:

Code:
export SYSSRC=/usr/src/linux-2.6.37.6-0.11
export SYSOUT=/usr/src/linux-2.6.37.6-0.11-obj/i386/xen/
and of course as always

Code:
export IGNORE_XEN_PRESENCE=1
but I always get the same error message. I didnīt encounter this problem on
the 64-bit system. Configuring the kernel sources was not necessary.

Next step I tried to update to kernel 3.2 - result stays the same.

What am I doing wrong ???
