I have no any idea. It gets built in and after xen patching via rebased patch set from Andy.

1. I build Xen
2. I build kernel
3. Create Grub entry for Xen Host
4. Reboot

I am at Ubuntu 9.04 Gnome login prompt
Login into Gnome Desktop.

Driver gets patched to run under Xen Hypervisor when i apply Andy's patch
set either or 2.6.30.

I believe Suse src rpm has to be analyzed carefully to find location of Nvidia
patch. It never bothered me.

What version nvidia driver are you using with that?

I've tried 185.18.14, 180.44, 173.14.16 and 96.43.10. All with
identical results.
