Default Gentoo Xen 3.2 nvidia drivers on linux 2.6.21

Hello,

I have a gentoo system with the xen-sources 2.6.21 installed and Xen 3.2.0. I have tried the various versions available of the nvidia drivers and the patches that are supposed to make this work, but I still get the same error.

Is the nvidia driver only supposed to compile in the DomU, or should it also work in Dom0?

Any help would be appreciated.

When trying to install the nvidia-drivers package I am getting the following error:

>>> Compiling source in /var/tmp/portage/x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers-169.09-r1/work/NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-169.09-pkg2 ...
* Preparing nvidia module
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.

As stated in
http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=72490
xen is not officially supported.

So:

- which patches are you using?
- are you sure they are applied?
- is /usr/src/linux pointing to the correct kernel?
(Well, output says it is, just to make sure ...)
