Default Re: [PATCH] xen-3.0.2-2 and nv-1.0-8756

Hi everybody,

I managed it to run nv-1.0-8756 with SuSE 10.1 and and xen 3.0.2

The NVIDIA driver is using the TLS-support. How can I avoid the following message:
NVRM: loading NVIDIA Linux x86 Kernel Module  1.0-8762  Mon May 15 13:06:38 PDT 2006
NVRM: builtin PAT support disabled, falling back to MTRRs.
agpgart: Found an AGP 3.0 compliant device at 0000:00:00.0.
agpgart: Putting AGP V3 device at 0000:00:00.0 into 8x mode
agpgart: SiS delay workaround: giving bridge time to recover.

peedy:/usr/lib> ls -ld tls tls/*

-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 2324 2006-07-21 19:35 tls/
I suppose the driver nv-1.0-8756 just runs with tls and there is no way to avoid
this for xen ?
Does FC5 use tls in combination with xen ?
